This weekend I finished my Sew Sew Modern 2 swap item - an English paper Pieced hexagon Heather Ross pillow/cushion.
I am thinking I never have to do EPP again - wayyyyy too time consuming!!! The effect is good though and I quite like the way it turned out. I'm pretty sure my secret partner likes it too!
I added a piece of twill ribbon on the side like a tag. It says 'Laugh often' on the front and 'Live long' on the back. I just wanted to add a little extra touch to the cushion and since I don't have my own 'tags', the ribbon did the job!
I will upload a picture of the parcel that I sent to my partner to my Flickr stream once she receives it. I made her another item that would give away who my partner is - so stay tuned for that!!
On Sunday I made a half apron. I followed the Patchwork Please pattern [gee I love Zakka]. This is my May Book Challenge project and I will be linking up over at Heart of Charnwood. And the best news is that I made it for my secret partner in the FLIRTS 2 Swap.
I need to get a picture with a thin person wearing it but here it is flat on the table:
And phew, Monday night is almost over and I just finished some birthday baking for the gals in the office tomorrow. Another busy night is planned - just how I like it!
[Edit: my birthday was fab so thank you for my birthday wishes]
