« class recap from french general | Main | red red red »



I love when you share your mom with us. Yahoo for mom.


Go Mom! I hope she gets to be CRAZY with her winnings!


Hah! So cute, love this post!

You cracked me up with Yo yo, Ma!

I can remember seeing Yo Yo Ma on Johnny Carson or someone a million years ago and he said that people always messed up his name ... he said his favorite was when people called him "Yo Ma Ma"! ;)

I long to get back to my yo yo's on my class project - dang infernal paperwork keeps intruding on my play time. ARGH.

Hoping to get back to it next week and I'll be smiling, thinking of you and Yo Ma Ma while I'm stitching.

Happy almost weekend!


Yvonne Welty

What a wonderful picture of your mama. She is still a stunner. Glad she won!

Monica Fullerton

I love seeing the excitement on your mom's face... hope she treats herself to something nice!




Yay for ma, and yay for you :)
Yo-yo's are so much fun... I found a little heart-shaped yoyo maker a while ago... need to dig it out. I also tried making Kanzashi flowers last year- addictive like yoyo making too!


Great post, full of lots of fun! Yay, to your Mom!

Mary Engelbreit

That is one lucky woman, in more ways than one!


I love making yo-yo's--they are so simple, but fun! Trying to think up some new projects to use them!
Your mom is a doll! Congrats on her win!


Way to go Big C!!! You didn't even have to go to Atlantic City! I love yo yo's. They make me happy for some strange reason.
