On My Desk

On my desk this week...

More Button Art! The top on is a hello kitty design. She is holding a spoon and wearing a chef hat. The Bottom on is a robot holding a balloon. Click the pic for a closer look.

Underneath the button art is another pillowcase I am working on. This time for me. I am using Aunt Martha Patterns. All Desert themed. I'll be dreaming about cupcakes and candy with this pillow.

Next is a flour sack tea towel for my grand mother. More Aunt Martha patterns. I love the retro 50's look of the animated kitchen ware.

And last but not least... a quilted purse I am working on. The fabric is fabulous...a Disney princess design but its in a subtle white and lavender. Its for a friends b-day. It late of course. I have a lot of trouble getting handmade presents done in time. I really need to work on things way in advance. :o(

This purse has been giving me problems thought. I started out quilting it with a normal presser foot but it was pushing the top fabric out of whack. I ripped out all of the stitches and tried using my new darning foot. Which worked a lot better. Except it is hard to make straight lined. Now I realize I need a walking foot. I went to buy one yesterday but the store was sold out. Just my luck. Guess I'll have to continue using the darning foot for now. Though, I think all of the line stiching is complete. Any more quilting on the purse I can do designs.

To play along...Kootoyoo.
