I decided to make two of each while I was at it so I could share some as gifts. For detailed information about cutting and making Yo-Yos of different sizes with and without …Continue
I am having so much fun making these quick little quilts. This one is called "Smiley" and is a design by Lynn Doyle of Bloominminds. It is 16" x 19" and was a great way to try out the buttonhole stitch on my new Pfaff.…Continue
This afternoon I made this iPad bag for my sister -- the last gift on my list. It sure goes together fast! It's one of Debbie Snyder's patterns - the Kerrie Bag. Now for a bit of gift wrap and the task is done.
On to making truffles and other…Continue
