Yo-yo Flowers & Tomorrow

Today I decided to make up a couple little yo-yo flowers without a pattern.  I have a lot of feedsack scraps that will be great for some of the smaller yo-yo's, and I used a new reproduction feedsack fabric for the largest yo-yo.  I wonder how people create reproduction lines of feedsack fabric, that really intrigues me!

Any-hoo, I hope you like these two little guys.

I am thinking of decorating the cover of my Art Journal with some of these yo-yo flowers.  I worked a little on the Art Journal today just Gesso'ing the front cover so it is ready for action once I am inspired on what to do with it.

I did have a fun idea for using some feedsack scraps in the journal, but you'll have to wait to see what it is.

Tomorrow morning bright and early we are going with my Dad to the hospital to have his open heart surgery bypasses performed.  We are incredibly anxious for him to have a successful surgery and be home on the mend.  All your positive thoughts and prayers will be appreciated tomorrow and the coming weeks!  I am so thankful to all you've been sending our way the last month + since his cardiac arrest.  It really puts in perspective a lot when these sorts of things happen.  Life is precious, take time to enjoy everyday.

Take Good Care,


  1. My prayers and thoughts are with you, your dad and your family. Please keep us updated!

  2. Nothing but good thoughts for a no hiccup surgery and a speedy recovery!!
