I am doing a lot better health wise so I will start this now

rules:
1.make fifty

2.Have to me by November 15( this means at my home not in mail)

3.fabric 100% cotton Christmas patterns or colors

4.I am going to leave the size and shape open for this
one you can make any size yoyos (big little medium)or any shape of yoyo you want (heart flower square circle triangle) please try to experiment I think this will be fun this way. Might make for some real fun Christmas decorations garlands, socks, and ornaments



5. You can join up several times if you want to get 100 back then sign up twice just remember you have to make 100 as well. if you want to sign up 3 times make 150 and so on

7. SASE ( Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) Please send return postage ( since you will be getting the same amount back it should be the same shipping it took to mail it to me. Please no checks and please if using stamps don't have the post office print them out use actual stamps it make my post office mad when they see a date 3 weeks old they think I am recycling postage not fun for me as then sometimes I have to pay again.


If you don't know how to make these here are some links to tutorials

circle http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/photos/how_to_make_a_yoyo/index.html

pt's yoyo's she went through all the yoyo's I already had in a jar that I made and some given to me and asked if she could just grab Christmas ones so I let her these are what she picked out. She is all of 5 years old so I thought this would be ok with everyone.



have a lovely day and may God bless you and keep you safe

I can't beleive your post office does that to you. How rude!!!!! Yep will make sure it is stamps, that is all our post office will do.
Glad you are feeling better.

One of my other daughters is eyeing the jar as well. Funny I was planning on adding to that jar but they have other ideas.

update
She has picked some out as she woke up on the ill side of life and wants to make it simple.
some of these are from the last swap a package that the mail man messed up getting to me so they are in this swap now very fitting they will still go to farm girls I am referring to the big green and solid red ones. I didn't want any one thinking we had made those when we didn't. The blue ones have snowmen and or snowflakes on them so even though they are blue they are christmas.

I am getting excited about seeing what we came up with for Halloween...a garland with them goes up right away in my house. It is Halloween decoration time in my neighborhood. :-)
My yoyos will mostly be blue background with snowmen and santa.
My plan is to hang them "backwards" with the flat side showing so the print shows. I may even get lazy and just pin them together on the back...they'll look the same hanging up.
Is Christmas coming that soon? !

oh, could you please sign me up for 100? And, I'm guessing that we can send them in early? And, then could we send more, if so inclined? Could I ask any more questions? LOL! Sorry, long day at the bookstore.

yes you can be signed up early and if you send early yes that gives you time to send more if you want to just let me know in advance so as yoyos come in I know to save more from everyone else to make your numbers correct as I don't like giving people the ones they made back I figure if they wanted their own they would make extra and not send them in.

Welcome to the group Lisa I noticed this is your first post please feel free to ask as many questions as you need happy to help. You can also go to the welcome wagon section of the forum and start a new topic and introduce yourself to everyone. Since you are new it is good to let you know that you should subscribe to this topic now that you are in the swap so you will get emails when this topic has new comments on it.

have a lovely day and may God bless you and keep you safe

you will now get emails when anyone posts to this, but you will not get emails when you post the soft wear figures you know when you post which only makes since. So how did you find the group here.

It was on a blog - I read alot of them, so I can't remeber which one, but MJ was on several so I thought I'd check it out. Since our move here to MI about a month ago, I've spent alot of time visiting blogs and MJ. I'm getting so inspired! And I'm a farm-girl at heart, so I think that's why I love it so much.

I will try to get pictures - one is with my Mom in WV (it was made when I was on bedrest with my next to the last son but I have the other packed away. Will get them out and post at some point. Mine was made in 1999 and on New Year's Eve, I put in the 2000th yoyo. it is scrappy, but my mom's has a yoyo sashing of solid dark green yoyos around the scrappy blocks. I will definately get pics at least of mine. maybe this weekend. I am SO enjoying this!! Thanks for the warm welcome!!!!!
