What do you sew when you have a house full of company for several weeks?  Yoyo's of course.  I have over 50 more in one color that I didn't take a picture of.  Such a nice item to work on while visiting with your company.  The only time I didn't work on them was when I was holding my granddaughter!

I completed July's BOM.  The pattern calls this water wheel, it looks like a pinwheel to me.  It went together so easy and I love the look of it.

June's row is almost finished.  Here is the basic row.  I have 22 yoyo's to do and add and it will be complete.  This row seems to have taken me the longest to complete.  On a side note, do you see the puff of brown at the bottom?  That is one of our poodles.  His name is Smith and he is the most curious dog.  He loves to get right up and watch everything you are doing.  He gets right in there even when my husband is using power tools.  Nothing scares him and he just watches like he is trying to learn what you are doing.  He wants right in on the action.

I tried to get a closer view of the row, you still can't see all the work of the applique.  I quess that means I really did a good job matching my thread to the color of each flower.

My beautiful daughter-in-law and sweet granddaughter are here with us for a visit.  My in-laws and sister-in-law are headed here for a visit also.  I may not get a lot of sewing done, but I will be cuddling my granddaughter and spoiling my daughter-in-law.
