Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!

Nice bag Mary Alice.  Looks like it was a lot of work. If the sash isn't functional, I would just tuck those tie ends behind the sash loops to the left and right of the knot.

But once Billy destroys all plant matter including roots and shoots Froggie will have to do something with him.  And what better than to invite us all to a Bar-B-Que?

Thanks for all your suggestions.  One that'll be the hardest is avoiding clutter.  I'm bad but my friend is ten times worse.  

Mary Alice you did a marvelous job on the bag.  I love how the turquoise sash picks up the turquoise in the owls.  Maybe you could shorten the sash so that it doesn't tie but is continuous.  Is the sash the closure for the bag? Or is it just decorative?

I've never tasted goat but if Froggie cooks it, I'll eat it.

Love your bag. I do agree though that the sash is a bit big. The fabric is super and it looks very challenging. Way to go!!! You did a fabulous job.

Here's my bag with owl fabric that the sash seems to kill.

Froggie, Diane has a great idea on getting a goat.  They eat everything!  You'll never have to mow the yard again.  Of course you won't have trees or flowers either as they eat EVERYTHING.  Even sheep eat everything.  Afterwards, you can have one big BBQ!  Well, assuming you like goat meat or lamb.  I should ask my neighbor how much he wants for his baby lamb.  But I don't think I could eat it after having it here for a while, and giving it a name.  But I could ask my previous co-worker to come and shoot it, he's a hunter.  Got an elk this past year and I get to check on facebook to see what they are having for dinner--elk tacos, elk fajitas (just doesn't sound right to me, but they like it).

Well I finally finished this purse.  I think it has too many doo dads for me, and I didn't match some seams as well as I would have like them, but with all that fleece it was tough. I also think that floofy sashing is a bit big and a bit much.  I'll post a pic once I pack up Peaches.  I'll have a free spot to put the purse on..LOL!

Froggie, how are you managing losing weight?  That's great!

Ooh, yes Froggie! A goat! Funny but I said the same thing to a guy at work today. You'd enjoy a fainting goat!
