My Creative Space--Screaming


This week I'm doing a wee bit of screaming....for ice cream. I'm working on another great embroidery pattern from Wild Olive--this time of her ice cream socializers.

Yes, summer is over (for us in the north), but this weekend we're hosting our church's Special Needs Ministry "New School Year" kick-off ice cream social. Whew. I think this pattern is going to look great as a banner hanging from the trees.

As a bonus, I will show you yet one more cool yo-yo project. I had some pj pants which became too small through no fault of my own. They shrunk in the dresser. Really. I hated to give them away because the fabric is so cute--Hello Kitty! And my girls gave them to me as a gift. Then I bought the jumbo yo-yo maker. I figured why not.

The soft, often laundered fabric, makes the very best yo-yos ever. I haven't decided what I will do with them yet but suffice to say it will be something that will not shrink in the dresser. Plus I love a project which fits completely in a quart size ziplock--the perfect grab it and go kit.

Check out other creative spaces--which won't shrink--here.
