Alan says I lie, that my desk is never as neat as the photos I post. I photographed it while I was organizing one of my ribbon drawers, but I was already halfway finished, so it's still not that messy. I do try and clean it up at the end of the day. It's too hard to think clearly if it's a total mess.
(The top example shows two pieces of bias sewn together on a diagonal. The bottom example shows the bias strips attached separately at the top and the bottom of the piece of fabric being bound with a 1/4" seam allowance. The right side of the fabric being bound is facing out. The wrong side of the bias tape is facing out.)
Here's a link to some of the photos of my desk that helped inspire the Self-Portrait series: http://thedonkeyskin.blogspot.com/2012/09/portrait-of-my-desk.html.
