December 9, 2011 

 Hi all!

Happy December!  So far, so good! :)

Last week I showed Randy's new favorite "apple" Christmas tree, composed of tiny metallic green apples.  It is really glittery in the sunlight and fun without ornaments!

 Then our daughter came home and added "Lily's Amazing Garland"!  Awesome!  She's been working on this for quite some time.

First she made lots of yo-yos, using a CLOVER YO-YO MAKER and a variety of red & white fabrics.  The she topped each with a red felt circle, cut with pinked edges, and stitched a button on top.

Last, she strung them on nylon fish-line, with tiny beads separating each yo-yo treat!  Precious!  

Get your own YO-YO maker and start your family making yo-yos for you this holiday while they are watching Bowl Games! :)

I'm using a MODERN poinsettia fabric from DECK THE HALLS, for the tree "skirt" of this special tree, which is set up high, out of Meiko's reach!

We've got lots of CHRISTMAS & WINTER fabrics, many on SALE.  You can see them here:
