    I guess if I could make bags or other items I would love zippers. Just can't seem to get the hang of them and I love bags.

    Do you applique? yes
    Do you use turn edge, or fusible applique? both
    If fusible what kind do you like/use? not particular
    What kind of scissors to you use for cutting out the shapes? old fashioned shears -- much more controllable than rotary cutter for shapes.
    Have you ever used (or own) a pair of the Fiskar micro tip spring action scissors? no
    Clover binding clips -- never used them
    zippers -- no
    Christmas fabrics - yes

    here is a new question -- what is your favorite holiday? Mine is Halloween.

    I am having so much fun deciding what to send. Thank you for this very fun swap idea!!!

    Do you applique? Machine applique only!!
    Do you use turn edge, or fusible applique? fusible!
    If fusible what kind do you like/use? Whatever's cheapest.

    Off on a different subject, I have a question... I know we all love to quilt, but what other crafts do you do???
    I do the following:
    Quilt (we all do that)
    Knit
    Sew regular clothes
    Crochet
    Tat
    Bake
    Cook (made french onion soup tonight, some in the hole if you want it)
    Make wine
    Preserve
    Some gardening (I hate weeding!) but love to mow.
    and Stained glass
    And love to read! or have a book read to me, (books on tape)
    I am trying to learn to do bobbin lace.

    What do you have fun at????

    Answers to the other questions
    as for the clips I don't have any yet, still curious.
    Applique have nothing in the way of tools, and still trying to learn it.
    Zippers have a bunch but don't need them much ( I don't make bags)
    Christmas fabric, yes I use it, but like it to be mellow, ie. general over all print.
