Mouthy Stitches Swap!

What a name for a zippy pouch swap!

But then when you know whose organising it - Susan, Hadley & Cindy - 'nuff said!!

The terrific trio have been scheming & decided to jointly host a zippered pouch swap. 

The requirements are simple - get mouthy!  That is, if you decide to join in, then get stuck in and take a fully active part in commenting on flickr and encouraging folks in what they make.

I love these 3 gals 'cos they don't beat about the bush - straight talkers.  We will be allocated secret swap partners, & they've even made sure that no-one gets overly anxious about the obligatory 'extras' that become expected in swaps.  The extras for this swap must be no more than a fat quarter worth of scraps - how cool is that?!

There was never a question of me not joining in (I could never say no to 3 fellow bee members!).
So I would encourage you to join in too.  

No need to be nervous about zippers either - a thread in flickr has already been started where lots of tutorials will be posted.  You will be among friends who don't expect perfection but love encouraging others to try new things.

To give your secret partner an idea of your likes, you make a mosaic of any inspirational pictures you've found in flickr.

Here's mine!

Picture no. 8 likes to hide, but if you go here, you'll be able to see it.
Have fun!


  1. Understand the title now - lol.

  2. I'm so glad that you're joining in! You make such beautiful bags I'm hoping to learn from you :) What an awesome mosaic...hopefully a hexie or two will come your way!

  3. Thanks for the recruitment push, Judith. So pleased you are in the swap. The mamas are looking forward to colluding over the partner allocations! HeeHee!

  4. Thanks for this post - very exciting, I have signed myself up. One question, I have created a gallery in flickr but have no idea how to upload it on to the group site.......

  5. Lovely mosaic - must get mine done today!

  6. I too have joined in! Love your mosaic.

  7. Thanks Judith, you can have 2 house points for this xxx

  8. I'm in on Mouthy Stitches too! Your mosaic is fab! Can't wait for partner assignments...

  9. I had to hold out on this round, as I have an absolutely INSANE number of other things on, but I'm definitely up for the next round!

  10. Fab mosaic, lots of sketchy sketching! I had a few offline days whilst visiting the parents last week, and missed the whole sign-up process, darn it! I will enjoy spectating on you all though! x


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it & I will always reply. (If you don't get a reply from me it is because you are a 'no reply comment' blogger. You might want to change your blog settings to make sure folks can reply to your comments more easily.) Jxo
