Yoyos - pompoms - and my Mom

Hey, ho,

Here are some of the yoyos (We used to call them pompoms when I was little) that I've been making. Even my Mom made some. It's addicting. I saw a garland made with red yoyos and beads at a quilt shop and so, of course, I wanted to make one. That's when I started making red yoyos - a lot of them. There are over 100 red yoyos in this pile. I don't have as many green ones. I saw in a magazine how to make a Christmas tree with green yoyos and a styrofoam cone. I'm hoping to get both done but I'm going to start on the red yoyo garland tonight. I bought this bead garland from Kohls and I'm going to cut off the beads and put them in the yoyo garland. I looked at the price of beads and knew that the yoyo garland was not going to be made with them. Then I found this bead garland at Kohls for 50 percent off. They are perfect...the perfect price anyway. :)

Here is my Mom holding up the yoyo she made.
