I have signed up for two Flick'r swaps 

which will keep me busy for the next month or so!

Firstly the Mouthy Stitches hosted by Hadley, Susan and Cindy!

I have to make a zippered pouch and send it with some scraps to my secret 

partner by the end of February!

I have used zippers in dresses and skirts before but never in a pouch....

In fact it is probably easier!

It came together pretty well, I'd probably cut the lining a little smaller next 

time to make it a better fit!

And I am thinking of maybe adding some embroidery...

I bought these transfers from the US

The second swap came as a bit of a surprise -

I have been invited to participate in the newly established

and this is what I have planned discarded so far!

The fabrics are not as dull in real life as they appear here!

I'm thinking about foundation piecing?

Or I may do something completely different!

Like this...

This one is 6 inches square

(Thanks Mary, for a great tutorial for this block!)

I'm hoping my partner (or any of my followers) comment so I can get more of

a feel or ideas of where I might go with this!

Happy sewing!

Love the mini spiderweb idea!

Your purse looks better than my purse!!!!! That looks really good and doesn't look like a first attempt.
I like the spiderweb idea.

I have to get this off my chest- I think it's an Aussie thing but pouches make me think of kangaroos. Okay that being said I really like the one youve made. It's so pretty! I'm excited about your special little quilt swap, I know you'll make something amazing. I really love your Rock Your Socks Off Mary blocks! I'd love to see you do more with those.

Hi Susan! I love your Rock Your Socks Block...hee hee!!! Those individual squares and strips must be tiny! I love it! The pouch is sweet and I had to laugh at the kangaroo comment! Have fun with your swaps :)
