As I mentioned yesterday, Ellie is getting a big Christmas surprise this year. In an effort to take the pressure off with other gifts, I'm starting to put away handmade items for the other two(though I have no idea what I'm making Glenn this year.). This puppy was orginally started a year ago with Ellie and I working on it together. However, I seriously overestimated her attention span for something like this. I think she made 3 yo-yos before bailing out on me. The idea had been that she'd give it to Trixie as a gift from her. When Christmas came and went, I figured it would work for Trixie's birthday - in August. No amount of coaxing could interest Ellie to start up again. (I say coaxing, but some threats may have been involved.)
Now it's going to be a present from me.
I wish I could take credit for putting the fabrics together, but I bought them as a fat quarter set from the shop.
