Desk Accessory Set...

Last week I made this desk accessory set for a family member's birthday... I had to make them on my old Jenome machine as my newer, fancier :) Singer was in the shop getting fixed. I got the Singer back yesterday...so I hope to be able to see how it is running some time today! But the Jenome did a great job filling in!

As for the Desk Accessory Set, it included a key board wrist rest (with the option of using it as a heat pack too!), reverse-applique leafy branch mug rug, pen cup, and a paper clip cup, which also had some mini post it notes in it...
Beautifying a desk makes the work seem less blah, right?! :)

this is called a swedish flame. make your cuts like you're cutting cake. leave about 6 inches at the base. throw some fuel oil in there. (about a cap full.) it burns up to two to three hours.
