Gene Black an Alabama Artist


Remember when I was doing these? Today I am sitting in the hospital waiting room for outpatient procedures - I am the transport driver today for family. So I am joining a few more of them. I need to measure the unsewn circles and see if there is a die in that size for the Go cutter. I thinK it will a take a few thousand more before I finish this quilt. This is long term handwork project.
Okay, back to working for me

Update:corrected mistyped words (I hope) and still at hospital- tired of hand sewing.

Surely there's a cutter for that....I'll keep my fingers crosses.

The only things I've ever made with yoyos were clown dolls that were very popular when I was a kid. Surely there will be a die for this - it's so popular right no.

are you kidding? You DON'T have the circle cutter... well...really, go change that.. maybe we should take up a collection?? cause we wouldn't want you to actually have to CUT CIRCLES LIKE THE REST OF US!!!

BTW... don't like yoyo's...



written tongue-in-cheek...kidding.. really!

Hand sewing takes time, but it makes time fly when you are sitting and waiting!

I have an older friend that gave me the most awesome quilt made of yo yo's, it is in storage and I really don't know how old it is. She has about 5 daughters but gave it to me because she knew I would appreciate it....and I do...so keep at it..what a great project for waiting.

Can't wait to see the finished quilt. Won't say my age, but don't delay! ;)))))

Not a fan of yo yos, but have seen some beautiful old quilt made of them. Hope you're out of work and home by now. Have a good Friday night.

I love yo-yos. That's a good way to pass the time while you're waiting. Hope the patient is doing well.
