    I could kill a lot of time with this. My kids had a spirograph but I think I had more fun with it than they did.

    I finally found my spirograph online that didn't cost fortune. However, when we moved I put it in a box and can't find it. I told my dh this morning I need to find it for the quilt I am putting the final touches on the top so I can use my new fision pin for the quilting. How weird that you mentioned it on here a few hours later--LOL

    Was playing on the web site when my 9 year old showed up wondering what is it doing? Man he has a lot to learn. This was one of my favorite toys when I was his age :D

    OMG ! Spirograph was my favorite toy in the whole world. Could be why I love quilting so much....

    How would you use it for making quilting stencils??? the only thing I could think of is drawing on a piece of quilt paper and sew over that.

    You are giving me great ideas.
