At least I waited until after breakfast

Oh my - thanks for all the nice things you said for my blogday. You all are some of the most wonderful folks around. (course - I already knowed that ya'll)

Miss MaryAnn, being the generous person she is, spoiled a surprise for me before breakfast the other day. (Not really - she was posting photos of my fabric challenge goodies)

But I am returning the favor. She sent me a small envelope full of brown fabric yo-yos with a note saying she could not find a use for them. I have chosen a pay it forward (and backwards) approach.

Behold - the outcome of bright yellow yarn and brown yoyo. Not complete yet but I think you get the idea. I plan to add green leaves and a button in the center. Then, because she sent just enough for the CIP members - these completed rays of sunshine will be off to them for there use in embellishing something. I can't wait to see what becomes of these.

So there - a use what I had - pay it forward - return a favor to a friend - work in progress. only 12 more to go.

What do you think of my original design????

Have a fab day -- Teresa

OOOH that is sooo very pretty! Sunflowers are one of my most favorite flowers! Was the crochet part hard to do ?

I really do miss you too! I'm going to a karaoke bar tonight for a bachelorette party and will be sure to lift a glass to you as well. :)

My dad is beside himself over this Tech thing - as I'm sure you can imagine.

Really - when are you going to be free? Lets grab a dinner/drinks sometime soon.
