A little Whoop Whoop for the seasons!

We have been feeling like seasonal projects lately, so whipped up this prairie point wall hanging

Great activity for hotel room…bring a baggie of 2.5” squares.  Make up a jillion prairie points while waiting for your event to start/bedtime!  I couldn’t settle on the quilting, so I quilted in the ditch between the background & border & then used the machine embroidery for the remainder of the quilting.


And I also finished around 10 feet yards of yo-yo garland for our shop Christmas tree

I used metallic floss for my stringer.  I think the best way to keep these from tangling in the “ off season” is to wrap them around a cardboard or plastic piece.  This one tangled just walking across the shop with it.  I made the garland in 3 sections; just easier that way.  These are the Large Clover Yo-yo maker-size.

Hope you enjoy our recent fabric adventures!

I am linking up with Sarah…go see what other cool projects got finished/made progress this week!
