Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

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.

Mari, I'm ready for Gifty!  Woohoo!  Not totally done with my UFO's, but who cares! I'll jump in with the projects that catch my interest.

Still working on those placemats, I'm thinking of making for Christmas gifts.  Need to sammich them and get them binded. 

Was busy this morning.  I started the laundry, then went out to throw bug granules on our lawn, then hosed down the sidewalks with Cutter Bug Spray you attach to hose, then found this super concentrate stuff for bugs mom had bought a while back, so got that sprayer and mixed up a batch to go around the house and all the nooks crannies, and then mixed up 2 batches of Round Up to kill the weeds on the outside.  Resting now.

I cut up fabrics to make 4 pillowcases tonight, so that's what I'll be working on.  

Men do have a hard head and they NEVER listen to women.  So happy I don't have to deal with one! Been there, done that!

Good afternoon . I had a great offer for transportation to go grocery shop so all stocked up. Haven't put it all away yet.

On the kennel Kathleen. It's a combinations of reasons. I do plan to continue to foster but only for smaller dogs that can be in the playpens on the porch or in the house. I got it to keep my Josey safe from insane neighbors.......... well those neighbors moved away........then I was given the opportunity to re-home Josey to a family with 3 small boys so she could get the attention and exercise she needed. She's happy as a 'pea in a pod' with the kids, they send me pics occasionally.
I got all kinds of fresh veggies for salads............emmmm.

Oh Anne, driving by Bangor and Brewer is making me homesick.  Did you get to Mardens today.  I hope I will be there soon.  Our August plans have changed a bit so we may now have to wait until Sept.  But that is always a good month up there.

I have dust bunnies. They are killer dust bunnies. Lol Mom used to say there is somebody either coming or going under that bed. That meant time to clean the room. Lol. 

I am going to use some orphan blocks to make safety strap covers. The seat belt usually cuts into my neck. I got the idea from Carol Doak. Her's is paper pieced. I made one like that but decided to use orphan blocks. Bbl

Thel, you just recently built that kennel.  Why is someone taking it? Are you not fostering anymore?

Mari, don't worry, tell your boss you have a lot of crazy company in us!!

What a great evening Kathleen. I want that pizza !! I did home made pizza last night. It was yummy, but not as good as yours sounds.

We've got the haze here too.............weather sure is a crazy mess his year.
Cute Camel.
Moose is doing well this morning. He hasn't eaten much, but is doing water well.
Guess I should get dressed. People will be coming to disassemble the kennel and take it. Yippee.
