Heart Yoyos

Good morning, dear readers!
I am off to a late start today, but that's okay.  Jocelin is home from school as her school's basketball team is gone to a tournament in South Louisiana.  Since there were few students not going, the ones opting to stay were given a holiday.  We plan to have a nice Mama/Daughter day doing our favorite things.
I took some images of the fabric yoyos I'm planning to use in a few prototype designs:
This ivory sateen one looks nice with the Czech art glass button, doesn't it.
Here are some others- brocade, velvet and sateen.
This is a little project I'm planning for March.  An ivory sateen yoyo with a Czech art glass button and tatting with Valdani size 8 pearl cotton in O 543.  Now I just need to sift through the pearls and beads to find the rest of the accents.
Well, Jocelin and I have a full day of antiquing/junquing, make-up shopping and lunch with Big Daddy.  Guess we'd better hop to it.  Have a wonderful weekend and be looking for a special goody on Monday's post!  Until then~
Happy Tatting!
