Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

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 us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 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!

OH, I wish I'd thought of doing that Kathleen.  I ended up with fried hash browns and chicken nuggets for dinner.  Just didn't feel like cooking anything more elaborate and was hungry.

Emmm,  key lime !

Glad you enjoyed it Kathleen. Chocolate pie would be my favorite pie. Well maybe tied with key lime pie. We all enjoyed the chocolate pie. I hope I sleep good tonight.

The food was great by the way, Kim. Big crowd! You should be exhausted. Get some good sleep tonight.

Well I don't know about anyone else, but I crashed Kim's BBQ today. And I didn't arrive empty handed. I brought the chocolate pie I made today. I had to cut very small slices, and it was for workers only :o)

OH and the small groups coincide with the school semesters-more of less.  So they start up 1st week of September and go til the end of November.  

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 7 hours ago

Aha, that was you typing on my fingers KIm. 

WOW,  2000 happy tummies!  I bet you're exhausted.  Time to veg out. 

Small Groups are a 'thing' at church where people with different interest host weekly group meetings.  They are ways to spend time with people with similar interests.  Social times with a faith base.  A sample of some:  The Widows, The Veterans Group, Mommies & Daughters, Burgers & More (you meet each week at a different burger joint for social time), Supper and Testimonies, Book Club (don't know which Bible book yet) etc etc.  OH, and there's a bunch of different ones for the youth.   There's a total of 34 different groups, so lots of choices.   

Yes, I could probably vacuum every day Kim.  But I don't!

Oh hey, forgot to say!   I also like bright colors for baby quilts.  I guess that's why Koda's quilt is so bright!  

My Bissell is a bagless vac.  That sure saves $$$'s especially with all the fur I clean up.  I emptied the cannister 7 times just doing the living room today.  

Time does fly by doesn't it.  That sneaky daughter!  Good for you on the list.

I was gonna suggest trying something different on Destiny.  Maybe she just doesn't wanna make that bag!  

I've got my 3/3 from sis sammiched with a fleece.  I'm gonna try to free motion and see how that goes.  Fingers crossed !! I've even got the feed dogs lowered already.  

I've got mystery flicks on TV for the day.  Too fun!  

I wish I had something beside Lasagna at the ready, easy to cook and eat. Guess I'll rummage through the freezer.

Hi, just getting home from the BBQ. We did just about 2000 dinners maybe more. It has been a very long day. I got there around 7 am and left at 7:30 tonight after all the clean up was over. Very humid today as well. So glad that is over with.

I have always heard that if you have pets in the house, the house should be vacuumed each week equal to the amount of pets you have at the bare minimum to keep up with the hair. So if you have 4 pets, you should be vacuuming at least 4 times a week. I'm glad I only have one. She is enough to keep up with. I don't know how you do it with all those animals. What are the small groups?

Have a good visit Froggie. I'm sure you will have lots of fun. Hope you get that machine figured out soon. I like Red Lobster but there isn't any within an hour's drive from here.

It looks like the water is receding a bit in Florida. More rain expected this week though.

Well, I think it's time for a little relaxing before bed.

I hopeyou got some new vacuum bags too, Thel. That dog hair is crazy. Good idea, he can do the mowing at my house too. No, I have known for a while that she's coming. Just the time snuck up on me. I thought I had a few more weeks but time is flying. 

I figured out one ME, and it's about finished stitching. The Destiny still won't stitch the design. She stitched a test design just fine, then I put the zipper bag on the machine, and the thread messes up! But the Spirit doesn't mess up. I don't get it. I will try to do something else on Destiny in a few days and see what happens. I got me a list, and we will see how much I get done before Wednesday.

Ha Thel!  My sister's name is "Virginia"; she hates it, and has always called herself "Gini", and you'd sure better spell it right too!  Sis just had her 76th birthday (don't tell her I told you), and I think Virginia was a popular name in her age group.

Read all your posts just now, but don't have comment time right now.
