christmas of 2002 we were at my family's in maryland. everyone was busy making something. i felt left out. i spotted an old doll's blanket made with yo-yo's which my aunt made when she was a kid. i thought it would be a good time to start one myself as i have always wanted to make one.

I love the YoYo quilt!! Is it hard to make? Soooo cute!!

The book is beautiful - have you thought about making it into a sketchbook or a project book so people could use it for tracking their own sewing projects?

I was picturing the other kind of yo-yos.

Tell me that is NOT a Fashion Plate figure? I used to have those and would love to find them again.
