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....

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  25. 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.
