Good mail day!

Well, with today's economy and my husband being in sales, I have restrained from purchasing any new fabric, gadgets, gizmos and more. I only purchased exactly what I needed to make a gift or to finish something needed.

I have really been wanting to try those Clover Yo-yo Makers. While checking prices again online, I found Quilting-Warehouse.com. The have all the little notions I need for the best price I have found. Plus shipping is a set price no matter how much you order. I had a few dollors extra this payday so I got these goodies:

Yoyos

I cannot wait to try these out. I have a bunch of cut fabric circles already bought years ago to try yo-yo making, but did not do so well! I really wanted to try the circle cutter. But even at Quilting-Warehouse.com, it was a tad high for my budget. Besides I just chipped my last rotary blade and need to buy a new one. Those things are expensive.

Back to chores so I can play soon.

Happy Sewing,

Good luck with the yoyos. What do you plan to make with them?

I just bought the large yo-yo maker last week because my kids saw a table full of yo-yos at a LQS and have been begging me to teach them how to make them ever since. I can't believe how easy it is to work with and we are having fun with it. Now I just need to figure out what I am going to do with all of them!

Let me know how the yo-yo maker works! I wonder if it will make doing them quicker?

I have made yo yos without the yo yo maker and they were not great at all. I hope mine will help me but I've not used it yet.

Those Clover yo-yo makers are fun! But addictive -- oh, so addictive! Hmmm -- now that would be perfect to do while watching some Olympics.
