Hello and happy Thursday!
Today I wanted to share with you a yo-yo quilt that I finally finished! Now, I am not a seamstress. As a matter of fact, I hate sewing! But, I really enjoyed sewing these little yo-yos! This was a project that I started many years ago, then put away and practically forgot about. Every time I came across it, I felt so guilty for never having finished it. Tell me I'm not the only one who does this! Anyway, I decided to give it to my nephew and his soon to be bride as part of their wedding gift. I bought them something on their wedding registry, but I wanted to give them something additional that had some meaning. She loves hand created treasures, so I am hoping that she'll love this. I made it lap quilt size, and I think it would look pretty at the foot of a bed, on the back of a couch, or draped on a chair. Or even used as a tablecloth.
That's it for today! I am gearing up for Michigan's longest garage sale, which starts tomorrow, I can hardly wait!
I am joining the following linky parties. Be sure to visit for lots of great inspirations!

Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
