make mine modern: sent

It's been swap city around here the last few months. Lots of fun and I've enjoyed it, but I am really looking forward to some no-deadline crafting for a while. It's been a really crazy week at my house. My hubby injured his back, then became really sick and we spent some time at the hospital. This is the first chance I've had to document the package that I sent on it's way Monday.

For this swap, we were to send at least a yard and a half of fabric and a hand-made item for our partner. We fill out a questionnaire beforehand so we have an idea of what to give, but it's also a good idea to stalk blogs and flickr pages to get a better idea of your partner's likes.

I have been wanting to make myself a few zig-zag pillows for a while, so I decided to practice on my partner's goodie. Aside from the fabric, I am really nuts about how this turned out. The fabric is nice, but doesn't really go with anything in my house, so there was no chance of this sticking around here. I threw in some other goodies I thought she might like and then stuffed a flat rate box to the point of bursting and off it went. I hope she loves it.


  1. I LOVE this. The quilting lines just work brilliantly.

  2. That is one lucky recipient!

    I hope your husband is doing better.

  3. I'm sure she'll be thrilled. That's a great package! The pillow turned out super cute. Do you make your pillow covers removable or just stitch them on?

  4. Just love it! I can see these in your house for sure. Like the photo in the white chair a lot too. Hope hubby is doing much better.


comments make me happy!
