Happy Sunday...Sew Sew Modern 5 Finished!

Happy Sunday! I hope that your week went well! Our week was pretty busy with work and taking care of household errands. I am finally getting back to sewing! I have really missed being creative. My first project to finish has been for the Sew Sew Modern 5 Swap on Flickr. My secret partner is a sewist that I have known for a while, so I was eager to create something for her that she would love. She had asked for a sewing mat and some accessories. After checking out her favorites on Flickr and Instagram, I decided to cut into my stash of Japanese and Heather Ross fabrics! Pictured below are the items that I created. A sewing mat, a fabric basket and a needle book.
The sewing mat has divided pockets sewn into sections on the front. All of her tools can easily be stored there so she can avoid knocking them on the floor! The pieces coordinate well together and are so cute! She received her package this week that also included a pile of extra goodies and she loved it!

Hopefully you had some time to sew and create this week. What did you work on? Was it a stunning finish or still a work in progress? My goal is to begin to catch up on Bee blocks again. I fell miserably behind since the end of February. I would love to hear from you again! Have a Happy Sunday and Happy Quilting!

Anyone getting those would be thrilled. I've seen many sewing mats over the past few years but they were always so much smaller. I really love this one because you have so many more pockets in it which clears most of the small tools off your table. Great job. I love this one.
