New Week But Recovering From Last Week

Last week was insanely busy but insanely creative. There were school events and after school events. There's too much to tell in one post. I think that this week will be a busy blogging week.

I want to thank all of the participants to the yo-yo challenge. The entries were all awesome!!! I appreciate all of the effort that went into the designs. I understand that there are a few more to come. I'll let you know but you can peek at the ones already posted to the Flickr page. Enjoy!

Here's my entry. I drafted this little purse and made all of the yo-yos only to find that my original idea didn't quite work technically. So I frantically made a new one over the weekend. I love it!

I thoroughly enjoyed stitching with Aurifil Mako 50. Dreamy, dreamy, dreamy. I used the thread to sew the yo-yos, the beads and to hand-applique it down to the front of the design.

I used the same thread but in a different color to machine quilt some vines and leaves. 

I can't wait to make another one! They're fun and easy [that is after you've drafted the pattern it correctly!] to make.

I promised some little treat. I haven't decided what it will be. Fabric, thread, something. I randomly picked two winners. They are: lucyeths3 and ytzgirl. E-mail privately and I will pop some things in the mail.

Meanwhile, hop over to the Aurifil blog. Miss March has posted her project. She's Sarah Vedeler and here design is beautiful! Remember to post any finished projects on the Aurifil Flickr site. We'd love to see and you get a chance to win some awesome thread!
