Curse Martha and her tempting crafts! Read a Martha article a few years back on embroidery and I was intrigued so in the usual me fashion I ran out to the craft store to buy embroidery paraphernalia and started this bubble pattern on a couple of pillow cases. Two years later they're done! Sometime during the second pillow I got bored or discouraged or something and put it aside and found it two years later.

I blame Martha's crafts for sucking me into crocheting, knitting, embroidery. I took a crafting/personality test once and the results were that I have a short attention span and these are the worst crafts for me. I'll show that test!!!

Crappy close-up--the circles are actually crooked (I freehanded them), it's not just the non-flat fabric.

This hideous metal mouth is the inside of that felt pouch. Isn't it creepy? And you don't have to look closely to see that the edge stitching sucks. I was trying to go for a satin stitch edge but I couldn't figure it out on the sewing ma-chine and I was getting fidgety. I could have read the manual but that'd just be too easy, no?

thanks for the quilting advice! i also have a short crafting attention span... i did the inside of that pouch, i think you should sew a little pink felt tongue on the inside.

The variation in size and color of your beaded circles on the pillowcases are very nice!
