My Creative Space - Going Yoyo

There is some slow progress happening on my kimono fabric yoyo quilt.  I haven't dared calculate just how many I'm going to have to make, but for now, I'm enjoying the moments I get to sit down and hand stitch the little puffs.


As the collection grew, it came to me that as I plan it to eventually cover our queen size bed, I was going to need a queen size bed cover sized space to keep them in.  For now, they all live in my great-grandma's hat box.


To see what other creative folks have been up to this week, drop by Our Creative Spaces.

Don't you just want to EAT them? They look wonderful and I know how time consuming those little critters are to make. Can't wait to see the quilt!
