Once again I come to you with a post of a project I made earlier this summer that I neglected to take a picture of at the time. I made the following mini-wallhanging as a just-because bit of fun for my mother-in-law. In my head it was a mother’s day gift but the reality of time’s inevitable flow is not connected with my actual craft completion time except by serendipity. Huzzah! for serendipity.
It is made with a foundation of ecru pre-quilted fabric, large yo-yos, large flower yo-yos, butterfly yo-yos, large heart yo-yos, green rick-rack, glass butterfly beads, and assorted plastic buttons. As is quickly becoming usual I added a green frog button in lieu of a signature. I used dark green grossgrain ribbon to bind the raw edges.
Here is a close-up of the flowers. All of the yo-yos were made with Clover yo-yo makers, assorted cottons, and hand quilting thread.
Happily my mother-in-law likes it.
I’ve been stitching away on a summer yo-yo wallhanging which I will hopefully finish before I have to don my Michelin-man-esq coat to help shovel driveways. C’mon, serendipity!
