WHAT DOES A GAL DO WHEN THERE IS NO SEWING MACHINE AROUND?

She does a puzzle....



and yes, it had to be an ocean scene.... I am an island girl if I ever saw one.



I did buy a yo yo maker yesterday but can't decide on the fabric ...... if I was home, I would have tons of scraps.....if I click my heels together, you think I would make it home?

Just realized that I never said when my giveaway will end....lets say May 1st...why you ask? I may not have internet next week so we will just leave it for then....

I love to do puzzles! The whole family gets involved. There is always a fight over who gets to put the last piece in though. When it gets down to the last few pieces, I put one piece aside for each family member so they can all put in the "last" piece. The only problem is hubby thinks he so funny...he hides a piece or two so we all freak out thinking there are pieces missing. Rotten BRAT!!


I love making yo-yos! I haven't bought the makers yet. I think the heart of flower shaped ones would be fun.

Oh I used to love doing puzzles! I know you'd like to have your machine all healthy and by your side, but this looks like a nice diversion! Will you mount it for hanging when it is finished?

Pat said...

That's a very nice-looking puzzle. Did you finish it yet?

It always interest me to see how people put a puzzle together. Some do individual parts of it and others do the outside first, like you are doing. That's the way I do it too. You didn't buy any fabric when you bought the yo-yo maker? I'm disappointed. Go buy some fat quarters! And clicking your heels together will only get you to Kansas, I think.

My daughter and I bought a set of yo-yo makers some time ago.
I have yet to see it. But do have numerous, numerous yo-yo's ready for any occasion.
Perhaps my next giveaway will be embellished with yo-yos.
Hugs, ♥♥♥

duhhh.yes I entered to win the green madness......i'm so not with it and can't focus on anything right now. please ignore the loony girl

I have an easy answer to fabric for the yo-yos....go the the thrift store and get men's cotton shirts in XXL and cut them up. You can usually get them for a dollar or two. It is a great way to get some unusual fabrics.
