at the show today an older woman walked up to my table purposefully, looked me straight in the eye and said "i love yoyos, too." it was awesome. she asked me about my necklaces and where i learned to make yoyos AND did i know about the clover yoyo makers? yes, yes i do. they're my constant companions. she told me about the yoyo vest she's making herself and how looking at my yoyos was making her kick herself for not thinking to use silk. seriously, i cannot stress how awesome this conversation was. we totally geeked out about YOYOs.
seriously. yoyos. i've made thousands of them yet i never tire of them. i love taking a new fabric, cutting out the circle and stitching it up - i'm almost always a little surprised by how the fabric looks in yoyo form. i love making them out of silk - i think it makes them look so modern. i'm always thinking about new things i can make with them. i dream about them. i just love them.
