Have you seen the Triple Zipalong put on over at A Quilter’s Table? Well, it’s actually over at Flickr. I’ve been wanting to make out of these Triple Zip Pouches, using Debbie’s tutorial for a while now. Not sure what I would use it for, but a dozen different things come to mind! Grab a button and join the fun. It runs through Feb 15 and there are lots of participation prizes!
Another reason to finally push the buy button for some Zipit zippers. I grabbed bundles of a lightweight 10″ and a heavier 14″ one. I think I must be the last sewer on Earth to bite the bullet and refill my stash using Zipit. Salvation Army and Goodwill is all well and good, but you can’t always get what you want, when you need it.
I dug through my stash and interviewed lots of different options of fabric color/zipper combinations. I bought this Anthology Woodlands acorn fabric online, on clearance, last year, hoping to use it for a baby quilt back, but the color wasn’t exactly what I thought it was. And this tree bark fabric I wish I had more of, it is a great go to fabric for all kinds of projects.
So this is what I’ll be working on today. That and shoveling snow…. We got 8″ after we went to bed last night and it is still falling at an inch, an hour, now. We’re expecting at least 3″ per day, every day, for the next week.

On days like this, it’s in my nature to hunker down and create.
Make it a great weekend!
