  1. Great stash enhancement this week. Your finished bags are adorable, I know which one I want to win. Fingers crossed. I think you did a wonderful job on your hubby's socks. Men are so hard to knit for sometimes, they want everything so simple and unadorned which usually translates into boring for the knitter.

  2. The bags are all amazing! I wish I could sew better, but the finality of cutting fabric makes me nervous.

    Super jealous about Estes- my dad lives out there, but a visit isn't in the budget this year.

  3. oh the paisley fabric is so pretty! I joke that I have reverse SAD, I get so unhappy in the Summer, the sun is my mortal enemy. Of course I have good old fashion depression anyway so, I feel ya. *hugs*

  4. You are off and rolling with a great podcast! Love the extra crafting segment as well. Good luck with your bag sales.

  6. Trying again with better proof reading! Love your podcast! I hate to sew and I rely on others for my project bags. Yours are lovely!

  7. love love love this episode! I would definitely like to enter. I hope the sun starts coming out so you feel better :) I would increase my winning chances by posting on my blog...but you have been the only reader and I am pretty sure you know how good you podcast is. :)


  8. OMG bag lust! You m'lady are far too friggin talented for your own good. I want to steal you and lavish you in fabric just to see what you come up with :)

  9. note to self ***all above have been entered into spreadsheet***

  12. Oh I love the fabric you chose for the bags! :) I really like the fabrics you showed for the not-yet-finished bags. Thanks for hosting a give away - and another great episode =)

  13. Nice to see a video that goes beyond just knitting love the bags. Keep up the good work.
    Keep smiling

  14. I love that you make up your own name for the yarn colors!
    I always copy and paste the pattern into Word and just print off the words so I don't waste ink on a picture. Sometimes I print the picture too. I guess it depends on how low our printer ink is. lol
    March 11th?! WOO that's my b-day! :D
    Another great podcast!


  15. Nice job! I made some box bags, but they don't look nearly as professional as yours! Just good enough for me to stuff a project in! Yours look so fabulous! Great work!

  16. Great job! I love the bags, your sewing is great!. Cant wait for the next ep.

  17. I love your bags. I have made a few of my own but they don't look as nice as yours. I would love to have one.

  19. I love your bag's color combinations and fabric choices. Unfortunately my sewing skills have much to be desired so my attempts at making project bags failed.
