On the Whimsy Road to Yoyoville

I have been pacing the floor waiting for Whimsy to arrive!
Phone calls & e-mails were sent to those who might take pity
on me. Including to Joanna!
I know I only have a itty bitty small perspective of what it's like for
a lot of the designers and shop owners out there.
Moda does do a great job of keeping us fabriholics supplied...
but they aren't kidding when they say "hot off the press".
This morning this little package was hand delivered to me!
Tonight it will be sliced and diced- big exhale! I can relax now...
and if you are wondering why this little package is so important...
I can tell you that a week from now it will be made into the next project
for the Fig Tree Club! The class is on March 6th. Nope, can't tell what the project is... only that
it's very sweet. A week certainly is plenty of time... but since I work, that tends to interfere with
my allotted sewing time, ya know what I mean?
Now I did have a back up plan...
I happened to have a bundle of Whimsy I have been playing with. I "obtained" it last Market, from a wonderful someone who supplies my habit!
I thought I would dive into my bundle left overs to start the new FTC project if all else failed...
but all is well now!
So, here is what I have been playing with...


My yoyo's are made, 4-patches are done, and I only have 20
yoyo's left to hand sew onto the background fabric!
Then all I will need to do is the houses! Next stop will be in
Yoyoville! (By Bunny Hill) It really has gone by fast. The yoyos are addicting.
I only said "are we there yet" a couple of times!
I just love the way it's coming together with the Whimsy group!

What a fun collection. Seems like alot of quilters are cooking up ideas to use Whimsy for.

Yo Yos are so popular. When I was a kid we used them to make so many crafty items, then they kind of disappeared. Glad to see them bakc, and I love your project!

Whimsy didn't knock my socks off as Joannna's designs usually do to me. Fresh Cottons is the line I simple must have! Can not wait for that one.

Hi. I found your blog from Ginger Patches. I see you are from Oakhurst. I grew up going to Bass Lake. We go every year, and it is our favorite place on earth!!! You lucky lady....living so close to what we call our little piece of heaven. Happy quilting!
