Gift from Irene

This little wall hanging was the gift I received from Irene at the High River & District Handicrafts Guild Christmas party gift exchange. This guild is mostly made up of "sane quilters" but you'll notice that from the trees and the snowflakes - I think embellishing is contagious! When she gave it to me, Irene gave me her blessing to keep going on the embellishments if I would like to. Right now I think it looks perfect the way it is but maybe before I put it away after Christmas, might add a star as Irene suggested or...? lol I think the crazy quilter's motto should be: Too much is still not enough!

If you take a close look at the snowman Irene made you will see it is made up of three yo-yo's of different sizes. To me the center on the top one looks like the snowman's mouth - I think he must be singing!

So, just wanted to show this off and say a big "thank you!" to Irene. I love it!

Very cute. I love yo-yos and am always looking for new ways to use them in quilts.
