Yo Yo Challenge

So my FB friend Linda Posted this amazing pic of Zooey Deschanel wearing this AMAZING Yo Yo Skirt. Someday with I have truly lost all link with sanity I will take that one on...but not today. Anyway, that picture turned into this insane creative conversation about doing a yo yo challenge. I personally take NO responsibility for it! ;) So, having committed to yet another thing that I had NO idea what I was going to make. I stalled thought long and hard about it. And without really knowing what I was going to do, I just started making random yo yo's with fabric that was laying on my cutting table. They sat there for a few days with no home, I thought about making a bag, then a necklace (only my cousin makes amazing necklaces and I knew I couldn't out do those), then a scarf, then a ... well you get the idea.  I have this air freshener on my desk, you know the ones with the wood reeds that smell up a room. Some of the sticks in my oil have these really cute plaster plumeria blooms on the top and I thought 'that looks sort of like a yo yo....hmmmmm I wonder' and started rummaging around for my hot glue gun. Since I started quilting, I don't glue anything (sad I know, but true). Once I remembered where I had stashed it, I started sticking them onto the reeds. Honestly, it didn't come out as cute as it was in my head but I don't think I will throw it out. I think I need to put something under them to support them a little, I may add leaves also. Anywho, here we go....
