Basic Grey Sampler - Complete!

I'm sure you remember me telling you that I won a Basic Grey Sampler  from Amy at During Quiet Time.  I finally had a chance these past few days to finish it!
I tried my hand at making a few yo yos for the first time in various shades of green and aqua.  I used one of the packages of Basic Grey buttons, and then dug through my button collection to find a few more that matched.
I sewed on the buttons and hot glued the yo yos on.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out, and I know it'll look great hanging in my sewing room!  I'll try to take some better pictures in better light once it's hanging in its place.


  1. It came out wonderfully! I think that your yo yos are the perfect size for the canvas. Very nice!

  2. How cute! It must have been fun making yo yos for the first time. :)

  3. Very cute, love the yo-yo and button combo

  4. Yeah, I agree, that is really adorable thing! A wonderful accessory for a sewing room.

  5. I also think that it came out wonderfully. I like such things. Thanks you very much for posting. By the way, if anyone you know requires a essay writing, s/he can find it here.
