I dyed.

What is it about dying eggs that is so fun! We did these as a family and all 4 of us wanted to do more! Now we have to eat all the eggs. egg salad, deviled eggs, eggs on green salads, eggs for lunch, eggs for dinner eggs, eggs, eggs.

AND...Ta-da!!!! I sewed!! It's a cheese pincushion! I made it for the way cute little mouse pin that my friend Bambi gave me. I didn't use a pattern and am very happy with the way it turned out. I sewed a cheese.

My favorite toys!

A while ago, I saw the Clover "quick" yo-yo maker on someone else's blog(can't remember who). Well, I thought " that's silly yo-yos are so simple!" Naturally, I proceeded to make one. But I couldn't get it turn out right!! Stupid simple yo-yo was HARD! Of course I told my mom all about it, And the really COOL yo-yo makers I saw. Being one who has ALWAYS supported my creative endeavors, and one who loves tools and gadgets (and I'm still quite spoiled) she bought me all 4 sizes of the round ones. And I LOVE them!! (Thank you, Mom!)Then, she gave me the large flower shaped one (joy!) and, now The small flower and both sizes of heart-shaped ones!!!(unopened) I bought some fabric today just for yo-yo making! I can hardly wait to sit and stitch up piles and piles!!! I do have a small project planned for some (but what about the rest?)... if I can stop yo-yo making long enough to turn them into something! Of to stitch...
