    I just got back from a long weekend at the BF's family compound in the woods of Wisconsin. So beautiful but the misquitos were crazy bad so I stayed indoors and made lots of yo- yos. Now I am wondering what I should do with them - care to share any ideas or pics??
    Thanks - Patti

    I had some jeans that were too short so I sewed yo-yos together in a strip and attached them to the hems. I get many compliments when I wear the pants.

    I enjoy making yo-yo dolls! I've made two clowns using various sizes of standard yo-yos, and two bigger baby dolls made with large padded yo-yos. Very cute!

    Last month I made a quilt that had appliqued chickens on a few blocks and primitive flat flowers on the others. Instead of doing the flat flowers I made yo yo flowers with yo yo centers. It gave the quilt a dimensional effect and they really popped! I was very pleased with the results and got lots of compliments at our LQS

    Also, when we were staying at a B&B last year in upper NY, our room had a quilt on it that used yo yo flowers. They were appliqued on with a trailing vine and leaves inbetween. It was really nice and thought maybe someday.......

    Such good ideas! I think I want to applique them to squares, maybe as flowers. They are made from a Moda Looking Back charm pack so they are dark. I am thinking some homespun fabric leaves and yo yo flowers appliqued. Love all the good suggestions! Thank you so much!
