Playing with YoYos

I started these two balls way back in the summer but I finally had time to finish them with the buttons I bought in November. An interesting bit about the gold buttons. I bought three cards and they all had the same stock number on them. It was only when I had them off the card and handled them that I discovered that one card held metal buttons and the other two had plastic buttons.

I also had a new inspiration and decided to make a wee wreath with 6 hexagonal yoyos. Alas, I had only one red button of the right size but the white ones looked better than I thought they would. I may or may not change the buttons after my next trip to the "button store".

As I was stitching this I was thinking, "What (on earth) will I do with this?" It is too big for an ornament and too small to use as a wreath. Once it was done I found the perfect spot for it. I have it on the door from my kitchen to the hall. Now I'm thinking I should make two more for the doors from the hall to the living room. (Which would make the white buttons look very intentional since the banister in the hall will be decorated with greenery and white bows.)
