Finished Yo Yo Carousel

Ta-da!  I finally finished my yo yo carousel!
I had so much fun making this that I felt a little let down when I was done.

You're probably thinking that these pics look just like the last ones but I did change things up!

I decided less was more and took some strands away, alternated their lengths and put space between each yo yo on each strand.

I love it!  Everything would be perfect if I could find a place to hang it where it LOOKED right AND was out of my kitty's reach!  You should have seen Bobby moving the ladder everywhere for me.  He's so sweet.
I might just have to save hanging this carousel in my future booth OR wait for kitty to grow up!

I'm starting to feel sad about summer/pool season ending but I'm also feeling blah from all the heat!  I guess I'm hard to please.  If it could just be in the 80's instead of the 90's!  See what I mean?

My teen comes home in 10 days and I will be back to cooking mounds of food, chauffeuring and tip toeing around male mood swings so I better stop complaining and enjoy my free time while I can!!

Thanks for being my friends.

Your lovely carousel would be perfect hung over a baby's crib. Any new babies in your family?

So fun...I have some vintage material already cut to make yo-yo's with. I found them at a sale once upon a time. I have been thinking about sewing up enough yo-yo's from them to make a runner for the dresser in my bedroom...you have encouraged me to get started :) Blessings

I agree with Linda. What a great mobile idea for a crib!

Bet you are excited to see your boy :-)
