Inspired by Jeanne's photo of her yo-yos on her blog (sorry, I STILL don't know how to do links!!), I am posting a photo of a vintage yo yo coverlet from my collection. Most likely from the 30s, it is another "cheery" quilt. I love to make yo yos as they are fairly mindless work to do in front of the TV, but can't imagine making enough--then handwhipping them together--to make anything large enough for a bed!!! Yo yos and hexies are some of my favorite handwork.
New computer arrived yesterday late afternoon--hurray! I will not be able to get it all setup till Friday evening. Today is quilt show setup day, plus a bit of shopping at the mall to search for khakis that actually FIT! I think something is shrinking my clothes while they are hanging in the closet!!!! Tomorrow is the first day of the quilt show so I'll spend several hours working/shopping the vendors there tomorrow. Then Saturday I'm taking a 4 hour class from our featured quilter, Deana Hartmann, who makes beautiful art quilts--can't wait. I am also responsible for counting Peoples Choice ballots so will be there most of the day.
I am hoping that the new computer will help me to post better photos. It will have some media stuff that I don't have now. Wish me luck on the pants search!
