Really, Sue, YoYo's!
What next? Pin cushions!!
It's not that I am burned out on the 4R's...Repurpose-Recycle-Renew-Resale...with Jewelry and Buttons, but I thought you might be. Afterall, that has been the focus of just about every post for the last two going on three months.
That's just the way I Roll. Yep, GungHo, UpToMyNeck in what ever project I take on. It just so happens that I am working through my 'Collections Down Sizing' Bucket List and even though I haven't been going in Alpha Order, it seemed like a good time to tackle the 'Bucket of YoYo's'.
That's right, I said Bucket of YoYo's! Really there are several buckets and more bags than I can count on both hands. So YoYo time it is!
~Across the pond in the UK, they call them 'Suffolk Puffs' which they believe originated in Suffolk County. Although little is known about that origin, examples of quilts using 'Puffs' can be traced back to 1601, and were popular during the Victorian era.
~YoYo's have been popular here in the US since the 1930's when 'Make Do and Mend' found the YoYo being made from worn out clothing and transformed into quilts and used as decorations for clothing and accessories.
YoYo Pink Pins and YoYo Pincushion Pins!
Betcha knew I'd work Pin Cushions in there!
And more Buttons and Broken Jewelry!
Oh well, that's just the way of The 4R's.
