One day a while ago, a friend showed up at my door. She had a box. The box had a familiar logo on it, one I hadn't seen since childhood. And some writing. Do you see what the writing say's on this box? Could it be? Why yes it could!
Yo Yo's! Tons of them. Old Yo Yo's. Vintage Yo Yo's. A box full of Vintage Yo Yo's.
"For real?" I say. "Yes", she says. 100's of Vintage Yo Yo's. All hand sewn into blocks.
There are 10 blocks total.
In Vintage fabrics.
Hidden in the box were some circles of fabric waiting to be made into a Yo Yo. And some loose Yo Yo's too.
The Yo Yo blocks need to be cleaned. I am afraid. So instead I'll pretend I cleaned them and hang them on the clothesline. It makes for a pretty picture.
I think I will make a baby quilt with them. Then someday when I'm a grandma, I can snuggle with the grandbabies under the Vintage Yo Yo's that my friend gave to me.
You can see the Quilt I made using a Quilt I bought at the store and hand sewing these vintage Yo Yo blocks onto it... HERE...
