On My Desk.. or work table, really.

My computer desk looks the same as it did yesterday. My cutting table looks like it did last week. (Too much time spent at the computer lately).

Today all the action was on one of the OTHER tables in my studio.... Some NEW PRODUCTS arrived! These will be on the website very soon.

See? I even started taking photos of them... These are fab new zipper pulls. (More on these later....).


There was even a litle bit of sewing machine action today. I finished off this bag. It's been a work in progress since my "Sharper Edge" class a week and a half ago....

I've doing dribs and drabs between toddler amusing, cleaning and feeding . Today was "Daddy Day" so I was able to focus until I'd finished it. YAY! One less WIP!!!

This is the Day Bag, made with a flap (lengthened from the pattern), a hard base with purse feet, a zippered gusset, an adjustable strap (with fab new o-rings that make me all gushy and excited...) and a key ring clip.

The flap is given a bit of weight using three heavy grommets (you can get these and the setting tools at Lefflers).
Oh... and we mustn't forget the new ZIPPER PULL!!! (I've put them on everything. I'm probably a bit too excited about them, too).

There's more On My Desk at Kirsty's blog....

Zipper pulls! What a great idea and your Day Bag is fantastic. I haven't used the flap version yet but now I'm going to have to! What an interesting way to use your grommets. I have a ton of them so I may have to steal that idea too.

Beautiful bag, and yes, good pulls.

I also know the concept that ALL tables can't be orderly at the same time unless it is pre-vacation or something.
