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.

Man, my son has these letters so tiny that I don't notice errors. I'm not touching it though - not while it is working!

Froggie, I have both the first and second of he Gifty patterns cut out, but my computer has not been nice to me at home lately. So, when DS1 called last night (I had texted him about going to get his BD card & gift late as they were at home not at the office like I thought) he suggested that I reboot everything. I had done it 3 weeks ago, but for not it may become a weekly thing as long as it works - YEAH! And his BD is today, he turned 58 and is retired (good system) although they have called him to ask him to come in several times - with pay. He sounds very happy, and doesn't plan to respond to every call as he enjoying his golf more! Who thought my son would retire before me, certainly not I.

Thel, love the new perm! That looks like a great job and that you'll really love it (and you match your Junebug! I was a couch potato yesterday, so hopefully it won't carry over to today. Your turn!

MaryAgnes, I had the windows open for awhile, but they are now shut. Way to hot to leave them all day and the sun makes me break out or I'd go over for a swim this afternoon. Our temps and yours are often much alike, but then we are close as the clouds fly.

Mary Alice, I love the encouragement that you are being given. Much more on the spot than I was, although that is what I was trying to say to you too. Don't stress the small stuff and go at your own pace.  And I didn't tell you that tonic water tasted bad, as I like the taste. I even purchase the unsweetened one. Sorry!

Hi KRae. I love your doll. I was making Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls to use under my Christmas tree back in 1980. A tornado liked them, but left me the pattern. I'm still hoping to one day have them.

Anne, it is so good to see your posts. You are lifting us up, when we are trying to lift you up. Thanks for sharing with us!!

OK, enough for me for awhile. Have a great Sunday, all!

Are you drinking the gin before church, Mary Alice? 

Welcome back, KRae. What a great idea, self portrait doll. I don't think I could do that. I have a big doll from my childhood and the boys think she is scarey. If I made a self portrait, there's no telling what they would do to me. Maybe call the funny farm! As long as I can take my computer and quilting stuff, I will go peacefully. 

I'm on my first project, Barbara. I am trying to get it finished and get to the cute pincushion. I figured I would jump on that one right away. I'm trying. 

What is up with that young woman, MaryAgnes? Maybe she needed a sabre or flag to toss in the air and catch. 

I love the smell of burning leaves and wood too, MaryAgnes, but sometimes they mess my head up. You can come over and breathe with me when I start this fire for the second time. 

I think I will try to finish the pillow today. Hopefully it works like I want it to.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!!  Gonna be another hot one in Gotham.  We've already walked to the river.  We watched a young woman jump, over and over again, while her boyfriend took her picture.  She wasn't satisfied with any of the shots.  We finally got bored and came home for breakfast.

Mary Alice, you might keep a glass of tonic next to the bed, just in case you wake with a cramp in the middle of the night, but if you drink enough gin, that shouldn't happen.

Hey, KRae.  Love the self portrait.

I used to love the smell of burning leaves in the fall, but those fires were outlawed in the burbs long long ago.

Welcome back KRae. Your self portrait is cool.

Mari has posted project #4 but i've only done one. Time just flies doesn't it?

Its been a thousand years since I was here, but..............I cannot believe you are into project FOUR already! Hi ladies. Glad to see familiar faces. Mine has changed to my "self portrait" dolly. How the heck are all of you?

This Hansen's stuff was bitter. It states cane soda on the can. Never had gin before, should be an adventure. LOL.

Pot roast in crockpot for dinner. Church this evening.
