Wednesday's Child is Full of Grace

What nursery would be complete without a yo-yo wall hanging. Each of these little circles has either polka dots or pins with a button on the bottom. This would make a very unique gift for new parents or to dress up a little girl's room.

More Yo-Yo's for Baby Quilt

I have purchased some more of the darker pink and will use some white yo-yo's to finish the quilt. I sure takes a bunch of those little yo-yo's to make a baby quilt.

So get in line yo-yo's, it's time to make a quilt!

How to make a yo-yo

I use a cd - like a music cd to draw circles on fabric

Cut out the circles

Thread your needle with matching thread

Turn about 1/4 inch under to wrong side and stitch all around the circle

Pull the thread to gather

Tie off the thread

And Wala you have a yo-yo

Delightful Tuesday at Beloved-Creations

What do I want to show you today from my website? Napkins! I love cloth napkins. I use them everyday -- some fancy some not so fancy. Here is an example of what I have now. In the near future I will be offering more fun cloth napkins.

Go Green!
