~~~~UPDATED FRIDAY 6/29/07~~~~
You each will get 55 in the mail - 50 + 5 from me as a thank-you.

I think I'll want to do another yo-yo swap in the fall because this was such a blast; we are moving back to New England (hooray!!!!) soon so it will be at least October or so. I'll post for sure.

Again, thanks to everyone for participating - this has been fun!

That was so awesome to sift through the pile and guess who each one was from!!

Jessica, there were definitely some from the fabric of your apron. I did quite a few greens, different variations, and some gold flowered ones and a few random ones.

I have to find a nice ball jar and place them in to enjoy for now.

ha clare...i did the same thing and none of mine were there..hilarious, but i did get one that matches my daughter suggested i put it on the hairband. and i think another one of yours fromthe crazy 9 patch swap. I also think i recognized where some others came from by scent...isnt that weird?

My mail lady said she had five things at the post office for me and that she would bring them today but she didn't come. Frustration I was hopping this was one of the things oh well I guess I have to wait till after the 4th. Have fun ladies what are all of you going to make If we have any sets of four we are going to add them to what use to be the kids table topper I think it may end up in my littlest ones bed room now ( the butterfly room in the making) I think it would be sweet in there. The girls like the idea too. NIce to have flexible kids

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

Thank you!! I got my yo-yos and special extra ones. What is so funny is that I thought I might get back some of mine, and I could not find ANY of them. I wanted to show my dear hubby which ones were mine. LOL I love the card, Jennifer. I am going to keep that idea for gift tags. I have n idea what I wil ldo with these yet. I think I am just enjoying the whole swapping thing and sharing with all you farmgirls. Thank you.

isn't that sweet!
Maryjane Lee Posted - Jul 03 2007 : 12:58:32 PM
I need to learn how to post pictures here!

I just put all my darling new farmgirl yo yo's in a big mouth Mason jar, then I attached Jennifer's sweet flower yo yo card to the outside of the jar. Looks so cute! Now where to put it where everyone can see it!

I showed my DH the jar and told him the yo yo's came from MaryJane's Farmgirls all over the US...he said "it's a wonderful thing"!

I got mine today!! Had so much fun putting them in groups by color, by pattern, with my other yo yos. Is it strange to have so much fun with something so simple? Anyway, thanks, ladies. you're the best!
