Modernista Homemade

Friday night and the football is on so guess where I have been?  Yup, in the sewing room finishing this:


ModernistaThis is one of two items I am making for a [secret] partner in the Modernista Homemade swap.  The first  room we are tackling is the sewing room so I made a 'weighted pin organiser' for my partner which is sort of what [secret partner] wanted according to her mosaic.  I used a free tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman found on Sew Mama Sew.  My seam ripper was used in a few places because I wasn't reading the instructions properly (I should have read them left to right not top to bottom) but it eventually came together quite quickly.  I'll add a colour photo soon - I don't want to give away the colour combo just yet!!  I still have to make a second item of my choice for my partner and I think I know what I will be making but I may change my mind once I do a little more stalking ;)  These aren't being mailed out until the end of July so I have some time!

In other news -- The fabric diet I was on didn't last long!!  I think I went 3.5 days... not bad really, considering there is soooo much yummy fabric out there!!  This time I bought the fabric to go on the back of my Mod Sampler quilt - another project that I am hoping to have finished by the end of the month!  It probably won't happen as I simply dread the basting process.  But I am determined to get one of the two done so wish me luck!!

Tonight I am linking up to these wonderful linky parties:

Fabric diets are even more rubbish than real diets ;-).

He he - I think the Euro 2012 football is turning out some very productive crafters! You just described most of my week too - football? again? yippee? come and get me at 11pm, i'll be in the other room sewing!

A fabric diet? Seriously? I think I could give up food easier, LOL!

How cute is that? You have a lucky partner!! Whoop whoop!!

As soon as you say the word "diet" and put something off limits, you naturally want it. Sigh.

So, super cute pin cushion/organizer! I love the little pockets and that the scrap bag is removable. I'll bet your partner will love it! Great finish! Thanks for linking up.
