I`m a little late to the Zipit party but I need zips for the Mouthy Stitches swap, which is all set to bust into mouthy overdrive as soon as the swap mamas assign partners next week. Exactly one week ago, I asked the numptyest of questions about zips of one of the swap mamas who politely responded and is far too nice to EVER spill the beans (although it may come out over a glass of her favourite tipple at the FQ Retreat)! The same day, I ordered a rainbow selection of 7 and 8 inch zippers from Zipit. They arrived yesterday! Yes, yesterday - all the way from...I`m not sure actually but who cares...etsyland, they are here and I can make a pouch for the swap! I have never made a zippered pouch before but I have put zips in clothes when I made them as a teenager. I`m hoping things work out and may try this tutorial. Wish me luck!
I can`t recommend Zipit highly enough. The zippers are so reasonably priced, come in beautiful colours and hopefully zip and ship so quickly.
What else am I passionate about? Well a recent discovery is orange. I had to order some orange fabric for the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee as I had none in my stash and it featured heavily in my hive members` nominated colours.

Just to prove I`m passionate, I received one of those fortune teller fish with my zips from Jennifer, which you place on your hand and it tells you how you are feeling! I haven`t seen one since I pulled one out of a Christmas cracker as a young girl. Well, here it is...
`Curls up entirely` - passionate. For passionate - read, hot hands. I just tried it on Zaki`s hand and it curled up for him too...and the only thing he is passionate about is dinosaurs!
Have a great weekend - it`s Friday!
