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!
  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.

Thel, I'm not on facebook. But I can still watch some of the videos when you post a link here. It's a mystery why I can't watch others.

Hitting the sack kind of early tonight. My daughters are coming tomorrow morning for a day of cookie baking. I baked two batches today by myself and now my foot wants to be resting so I may as well go to bed.

Froggie--your making of the microwave bowls is making me think that perhaps I should think about some in the future. It's either that or figure out a way to make nips into cotton dishcloths. I always keep one on the rotating plate which makes for easy cleanup if something boils over. Maybe I need to make a few nips. I think I could do the nip single handed even if DS would have to tie the ends on his next stop. I've got to keep the brain active somehow.

I haven't had a tree or put up any Christmas decorations for years. There are two quilted hangings that add brightness and are up. One is a large single stemmed poinsettia. The other is the Dec wreath with red bow--itty inspired.

Good info, Carol Ann. The tables at the new sit and sew are long, and the machines get dancing around.
OHNO, Agnes, is that your tree? I crack me up.
He has always loved orange, and his car is black, so that's what he loves. I love it because it's Halloween colors! Just add some purple. His mom loved orange too, because he did.
Yeah, Mary, it worked. Good for you.
Good news at the doc, that's great, Barbara.
I am glad you are home and safe, Cindy. We have seen lots of wrecks across the US with lots of injuries and deaths. This storm is crazy. I am glad it decided to skip coming to Mustang. I would be home, but the boys would be on the streets.

Mitzi would NOT like a new cute kitty for Christmas, Carol Ann! Good thought, though.

OHNO, what is going on around here? Beaver cutting down a Christmas tree, and a kitty being an ornament in another. I hope Chocolate doesn't pee on ours.

I worked on the bowl pot holders today. Then, I got one finished and tested it, and it seemed too small. So I cut some more, and started working on them. Later, I decided the original holders are fine. Maybe. Then, I started working on a zipper bag DD1 requested, and the zipper turned out to be too fat in the teeth. It took me a while to figure that out. So, the back is fine, and I need to start over on the front. Then, I cooked lasagna, and burned the garlic bread. Is there a full moon out there? DGS1 came home for the weekend, so that's a good thing that happened. It was a surprise.

I was going to send you a Facebook Friends request Kathleen, but there are so many on FB I wasn't sure to to send the request to

Brrrr, cold here today, only in the teens but we have a very brisk north wind, that cuts right through.

Barbara, my car did that to me a couple of weeks ago, just all of a sudden, it didn't know my phone, I did nothing, an it healed up in a few days. ?????

I worked on some more of the first squares on my Labyrinth last night, it is fun. I am trying so hard to be really accurate, this is a good place to practice that, and yes I am trimming before assembling.I apparently just can't do what my "friend" said and cut good accurate and sew perfect 1/4 inch seams. but not trimming that much.

For some unknown reason I couldn't watch the video Thel. I don't know why I can view some of the ones you post and not others. But thanks for thinking of me ☺

This is a friends Christmas tree.  The cat is a riot.

DS forwarded that little Canadian tree so I could share it with my quilting friends. Glad you're enjoying it.

Mary Agnes--Brampton is in the populated part of Ontario next to Toronto whereas I live very near to the Manitoba border in the rocky forested area. Ontario is hummungus. I had my hand surgery in Thunder Bay, our regional health center, over 6 hours east and south away. I've never come across the Italpasta line of products.
