Inspired by the yo-yo coverlet and runner that Kate Martin made and showed our quilt guild, my mom started making yo-yo’s. Not knowing how many she would need, she just kept making them. And making them. And making them….I’m sure it’s been over a year, and she now has well over 1,000 in this bin. She is finally starting to sew them together to make a coverlet for her bed. Although I Kate’s coverlet was scrappy with “sashing”, my mom is sewing hers together in a completely random pattern. lt will be the perfect bed cover for the summer.
Things that make me smile:
- Finding the perfect fabric to make a gift
- The scenery on the t.v. show Hawaii Five-O. The colors blue and green are so vivid on that show. Especially when it’s so cold outside here, the Hawaiian scenery makes me smile.
- Blueberry Jello with pears
Let’s go spread some sunshine!
