I was so lucky to have a partner that sent my "Make Mine Modern" swap very early!
Well, I'm not that fast, I'm afraid, but I am now finished with the swap, and it's going in the mail today!
I made a project pouch, wich my partner wished for. I hope she likes this, I know it's made in colors she loves.
This is the back of the pouch,with a pocket and a cute frog button.
Here is the front, I made a wonky log cabin block and added some hand stitching details.
The pouch has two interior pockets as well.
I also made this mini quilt, and I hope she likes it.
It was great fun to sew the tumblers and to add the little quote...
And as you may have noticed, I really love buttons! So the flower had to be there:-)
Here are the whole package, minus the mini quilt.
I hope my swap partner will enjoy it.
(There are a couple of surprises that didn't make it into the photo)

I am so lucky, she made me a lot of beautiful things and gave me lovely fabrics, and some extras, too.
She made a sewing machine mat, two adorable pincushions, a fabric basket with lovely details, and a crochet project pouch, complete with adorable scissors and crochet hooks. Everything in my favorite fabrics and colours.
The fabrics she got me are fabulous, four fat quarters and a charm pack.
Look at this, it's all so beautiful:-)
It has been a bit too long between my blogposts lately, It's summer and a lot to do:-)
We were on a holiday last week, in Trysil. We rented a cabin through my job's union, and had a great time!
The first photo is NOT the cabin we rented, but you see, I just had to take a photo of it. These cabins are not the usual standard, but there are a lot of high standard cabins in the area. I think it's a shame to even call them "cabins", because they are so big and luxurious.
Bamse sneaked in to the photo, he loved it there.
This is "our" cabin, we had a lovely time there, and I'm sure we'll rent it again next year.

I joined several swap's over at Flickr, and this is the first one finished.
In the "Pretty Little Pouch swap 2" I got a wonderful partner, and I think she will like this. It's a small pouch (5"x 8"), and I loved making it!
This is the back of the pouch. Sorry about the ugly piece of paper on it, but there's a name behind it. I don't want to spoil the surprise, just in case she happens to read my blog.
This is the front.
I made half of a Dresden plate from scraps and sewed it on a very rough piece of linen (from IKEA).
The pattern I used is the Keyka Lou Inset Zip Pouch, but I gave it my own twist.
The zipper came from my grandmothers stash, I'm so happy I can use the things from her. I added a colorful piece of ribbon to the zipper pull.
I hope my partner will like this as much as I do! It's been a very fun pouch to sew, and I enjoyed using linen.

Hmmm, Blogger doesen't want to place my photos in the order I want them...
Well, anyway, I participated in a swap on Flickr, the Mug Rug Swap Adventure 2, and this is what I recieved. Isn't this mug rug beautiful? Thank you so much, Wendy!
She even included some teabags. I love tea, so that was great.
And now, for my birthday present... I love it! I have been wanting a new sewingmachine for years, but the type of machine I wanted was way too expencive. I have been drooling over this Janome since it came on the market, but couldn't afford it.
Well, I had my birthday recently, and my whole family gathered together and gave me money so I could buy it. I love them sooooo so much! And I guess they know me so well, they understood that this was the best gift I could ever get.
Thank you to every single one of you, you are the best:-)
The first item I made on the new machine it this mug rug...
I can't show you anything but a sneak peek, because this is my item for the Mug Rug Swap Adventure 2, and I don't want to spoil the secret for my partner, in case she reads my blog. I'll show you later.
I went out of the box with this, and I'm very happy with the result. Combining my two favorite hobbies, quilting and crochet, was so much fun!
Only scraps were used, pretty happy with that, too.
