Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

Froggie--Yup, I don't need help in the organizing department. I have been the one receiving the phone calls or asked directly, "Where is ????" after doing some organizing for DS's or DH.

Good morning Gifties! You know what day it is?

I hope you don't get too much wet stuff today, MaryAgnes. That's a great idea, Anne can send her DDIL to all our houses to help organize and clean up. Except Agnes' house, she stays organized. Good for her. 

I hope to sew a seam or two this morning before I have to go off on my wedding shoe hunt. Yuck, I hate shoes, I hate shopping for them. Made me grumpy the other day. Sis in law is going with me, wish her luck. hehee.

Good Morning, Gifties.  Waiting for the precipitation to develop into something.

Good to hear from you, Anne.  Would you ask your DDIL if she does apartments?  Tell her mine is probably smaller than your sewing room, but boy oh boy could I use an organizer.

I dunno, MaryAgnes. Nobody asked me. Mustang Broncos. Red and Black. 

Hi Anne, good to hear from you! Your DDIL is a good one. The closet in my old quilting room has no door. Mr. Bullfrog took them off and made shelves in the closet. When DGS1 took that room over, I told him I still wanted to keep the shelves and use them for my stash. I made room for some of his stuff, plus he got to use two other closets to hang things. I have the same deal with DGS2. That bedroom is the biggest, next to the master. 

Kathleen, she will be calling DDIL, 'Where is my seam ripper?' Where are my scissors?' Poor DDIL. She will be sorry. heehee. 

I am tired. I think it's time for some ice cream. I had a busy day, including sit and sew. I got a lot done, even though I had a late start.

Good to hear from you Anne. I bet you'll be in touch with your DDIL for several days after the room is done asking "where is . . . ?" !

Hello Anne, so good of your DDIL to do that for you! So much love and so much kindness. Her process appears sound and i bet you'll have a beautiful sewing room by the end of the week!

Comment by Anne yesterday
Clear cold day here today.
Had more porcupines yesterday.
Along with another chemo treatment .
All is going well....can't sew....my DDIL,
Asked me if I would let her organize my sewing room???? Oh, Oh!
How do I Answer this? Yes, I said YES?
She has already moved my desk ... my office.
To the doorway as you enter the room.
Nice and neat..i agreed. She has removed all my fabric stash and all sorted by colors. Placed into another room. The door to the closet has been removed and will become the table top for janome and babylock with lights. The door less closet will have shelves and cubbies holds for organized fabrics. .DS#2 her hubbies is doing this. I'm a little nurvous but, I told her that I would back off and she can be boss. Very hard for me to do. But, I really trust her. She Is Good. And I'm in the loop, but, standing in the hallway, looking in.
She said she'll be back over the weekend to complete.

Good morning! Wow, SO quiet here...

Avery, welcome and thank you for joining us. It usually is not this quiet here but everyone is over at the Itty Bitty Quilt Along as that is where the action is right now, LOL!

Mary Agnes, I hope Anne is OK too...

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

Hi, Avery.  Welcome.  

Why wouldn't Mustang's team be called the Mustangs?  Mineola (Long Island's Mineola) High School's teams were the Mustangs.

I hope Anne is okay with the snow.  Maybe she'll check in and let us know.
