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.
