time to visit the post office.

Pin It Pillow Talk Swap pillow -- done.

Pillow Talk Swap 4 pillow

Modern Swappers bundle -- done.

For the Modern Swappers swap, the person sends a handmade item, something for the sewing room, and at least 1 1/2 yd. of fabric.

I used this tutorial by Oh Frannson's Elizabeth Hartman to make a thread catcher/pin cushion.

(yep, there's a Hera marker in there)

These are the fabrics I'm sending -- that check plaid by Momo (third down on right) is my new favorite...

And of course -- the pillow I've been working on.

Both my partners have similar taste; and I want to keep these pillows together... forever... but then I'd have more sewing to do (because I am not a flake), and I have enough to get done by December 24!

pillows for swapping

I hope they're both happy! :)

Steiger sure approves.

He likes it!

Fabulous pillows! I like the hexie one as a hexie :D

Amy said...

Both of your packages are going to be well received! I love everything that you are sending off. I feel your pain, splitting up those pillows. They do look like they belong together!

Sara said...

I think I may have to pick up one of those Hera markers! Thanks for sharing.

Momo IS FABULOUS isn't it!!!

The pillows came out very nice---they are going to adore them.

I love the button in the middle of the pillow; that's a great idea. I'm sure your partners will be thrilled!

Poppyprint said...

Lucky, lucky swap partners!!!
I'm so excited, I forgot you hadn't done your GO! giveaway yet. I'll be here for sure. Sweet Steiger pic (as always).

Me, me, me!! I want that basket!! So pretty!

Molly said...

Your swap partners have it made! The pillows are lovely and I will be checking out Oh Frannson's tut on the adorable pincushion/string catcher. I currently use a heavy bottomed cup that I constantly have to empty.

Kelli said...

How awesome are those goodies???
I agree, those cushions just belong to each other hey?

Katie B. said...

I love your pillows! They're both so fun, and I love the colors. I've been meaning to make one of the thread catchers. Thanks for reminding me of that tutorial!!!

oooo... I like that cushion thing! It may well be the solution for the "no pins on the leather couch" rule! :)
