We all know.....

....... that Shez is the queen of the tea towels....

I loved getting one of my own from her for my birthday and decided to make up some myself...

... these are for my birthday love stash hosted by Wendy....

8 little hand towels hanging on a rail....


It must be 20 years or so since I have done buttonholes.... so I pulled out this little gadget from my box...


... in my child clothes making days we drew lines and went backwards and forwards fiddling around...

... all I did was put the button in the back of the gadget...


... and put foot to pedal....


... amazing.....

.... now I can be the buttonhole queen....



Fido is not part of my birthday stash... but he would be perfect...


I made this shop sample.... my first stuffie animal.... I love it that Quilters Angel trusts me with new things... isn't he so cute???  Already trained too....

Righto, Gotto Go..... a couple of deadlines are looming....

I think you will be giving shez some serious competition for that title!
they look so pretty all in a row.
Button hole and tea towel queen?
I have the same foot for my Janome. So quick and easy!

Tracy said...

Button holes are so easy now with those attachments but I still always do a practice one like I was taught at school.
I used to crochet the tea towel tops but have taken to the sewn ones now too. So much quicker and very pretty.
Fido is tres cute.

Those towels are very handy and yours are gorgeous. Gotta love a foot that knows just the right size for your buttons.
Fido is super cute. Love those colours together.

Your towels are lovely. Someone is going to be very lucky to receive one of them. I agree with Deb R, you can never have enough. Nola

All those tea towels almost look like cafe curtains hanging there! Great work Fiona. I've got one of those gadgets too. Don't they make button holes so easy!

Shez seems to have started a craze, these towels are popping up all over the place, lol. Love your little dog too, much nicer than the real thing

Wendy said...

The line of hand towels looks lovely, that's a great button gadget!! Such a cute little dog too, hugs

Cute puppy Fiona and your hand towels are great - how easy is that buttonhole

Unknown said...

Just love fido

Wendy said...

love your towel toppers, I might need some of these for my new kitchen. If my new kitchen ever happens.

Susan said...

I love my buttonhole foot too - its a marvel!! Love Fido. I really do like the look of the fabric & towel combo rather than the crochet ones - more modern I think.

Karen said...

I think the tea towels are too nice to use. I think they should be left looking lovely an the rail!
Fido looks rather delightful, too.

I love how buttonholes are easier too these days! Great tea towels Fiona!

Love that row of towels and Fido looks fantastic. I still carefully do my buttonholes the old way too. Have the gadget but don't like it as much. Might be the machine though.
