I just noticed this is my 100th post! WOW! I didn't think I would make it a WEEK..much less 100 posts! If you will leave your name on my comments, I will draw a name for a 100th post gifty. Nothing fancy..just a gifty...a thank you for stopping by.
I had purchased one of the new yo yo makers. I don't have ANY clue what I will MAKE with them! Last night around 1am we had a HUGE rain/thunder/lightening show. My nervous nelly dogs did their usual dog and pony show. The only place they even PRETEND they can exist during a storm is under my sewing table. I tried going back to bed around 3..but as SOON as my head hit the pillow...KA BOOM...back I went to the sewing room. I started out watching some Tivo-ed Mystery Woman episodes, but as the thunder would get closer, I would chicken out and turn off the TV. Of COURSE the sewing machine is STILL unplugged- I NEVER take a chance on that...even tho it IS plugged into a good serge protector! I rifled thru a small crate of scraps and tried out the yo yo maker. That thing is FUN! Here is how it works:
You get these two circles.
You place the fabric right side down in the big circle, push the smaller one in ...trim (this one has already been trimmed)
then you turn it over and stab stitch (up and down) in the small openings, overlapping the 1st stitch
Pop fabric out of both circles
pull up on thread
Keep gathering until you have a yo yo!
Look at all the yo yos I made in the middle of the night!...(I think I feel a NAP coming on!)
