Warning: This is a picture heavy post…
In spite of having my jaw swollen to the point that I could not put the teeth on the left side of my mouth together, I had to go to Craft Saturday…lol
What is it? Craft Saturday is the 3rd Saturday of the month, every month except December, when the Red River Historical Museum in Sherman, TX hosts a guest instructor to teach one of many crafts. It is free to the public, but there is a $5.00 charge that goes to the instructor to cover the costs of materials for the class. This time it was “YoYo’s.. Past and Present”.
Susan Eggleston was our instructor for this class….
And look at these beauties she brought for us to drool over!
Everyone is hard at work trying to keep that tiny little thing between the fingers..lol And keeping Susan busy with questions!
This is what we were working toward. What a cute idea. And how would this flag look on a crazy quilt? .. (More on the crazy quilts that are on display upstairs tomorrow!)
I have seen many yoyo quilts, but this quilt has them used as the center for the secondary blocks that join the larger blocks. What a lovely idea.
All in all, what a good day. If you find yourself in the Sherman area on the 3rd Saturday of the month… JOIN US! And if it’s not the 3rd Saturday of the month, come by the Red River Historical Museum and just wander through taking in all the lovely sights… and enjoy the history. Did you know that Frank James ( of Jesse and Frank James fame) was married here in Sherman? I didn’t either until yesterday when I saw the marriage license on the wall!
