Welcome to Gifty Galore 2014!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

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 Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 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, you reminded me I need to get back to my Lasting Legacies quilt.  Totally forgot.  I've been so busy with this baby quilt and baby shower is tomorrow, and I've not mailed it out yet because I'm not done.  All I have is the 2 receiving blankets  and a diaper bag done.  Still need the scrappy quilt I've got ready to sammich, and to add the rows of the AG Nursery Rhymes and the backing (just sending it to my sister).  Keep getting side tracked with all these new ideas, fabrics, Bionic Gear bags, etc.  I think I've become an ADHD quilter!  Are their meds for that?

Alas, no warts at the beauty salon.  

Debra, let me get this straight, you're asking Sheila and myself to behave? Well, that's never gonna happen...., what fun would that be!  We'll make sure Froggie is okay and gets home. 

Sherri, I like your doggie quilt.  Maybe it's not too big.  You know how those big dogs think they weigh like 2 lbs when they smash your lap sitting on you.

Mari, I have heard it's the combination of cool nights and warm days that makes the leaves change colors.

Do you have your warts yet, Mary Alice? I bet they are gorgeous, along with that nose! Long and crooked.

OH no, Sherri! It sure is gorgeous, though! The grand dogs will love it. I love the bone fabric.

I have been working on my Lasting Legacies quilt all day. I started out with one design, decided it was too thick, and started ripping it out. ugh. Now I have all the other blocks finished, and am still ripping. This is one bad design! I should just delete it from my laptop. I changed to another design, and it is working out much better. Now I am putzing in the quilting room, like Sherri, can't decide which of the million UFO's to work on. I am excited for our ride tonight, flying around scaring little kids.

I feel like this has been one wasted day.  I neglected to do good planning for this doggie project,  now I have a piece that is too big to use as a mat for the food and water bowls, but is also too small for our big girl to lie on.  So maybe one of my granddoggies will get it for Christmas.

There they go again, taking something Cajun and making it their own. First the blacken fish (it was left on to long instead of throwing It out they just called it blacken fish), now it's our Thirsty Thursday (another way to sell more alcohol, as if they need it). lol

When you gals go riding tonight behave. Don't make me send out the flying monkeys.

May all your ups and downs be in stitches.

Good morning.  Every morning when I step into the sewing room I have to make a decision what to work on.  Although an art quilt is really calling me,  I have too much to do before we leave and I am sure I couldn't finish it before I leave.  So today my mind went in a dozen different directions and I settled on a mat for under the dogs food and water bowl.  Appliqueing  little doggies and dog bones on the squares.  What is wrong with my priorities.. This is for a dog.... although we love her she won't appreciate the work that goes into it.  Should be finished this afternoon and I'll post a pic.

Good morning everyone!  Have a great Halloween Day!

I'm off to salon, hope they don't mistake me for a witch and add beauty warts.

Be back later!!

Sheila, bundle up and take care of that bug.  We can't go riding around tonight scaring kids if you're sick.

Windy as heck here.  Going to need allergy meds today.  Expecting rain tonight and perhaps this weekend too.

Good Morning Gifties.  

Never heard of Thirsty Thursday before and after reading Debra's post I walked by a bar with a Thirsty Thursday sign outside.  And the bar didn't have a Cajun theme.  No drive thru shops for me, unless it's on a subway platform.

Happy belated 39th b-day, Kathy.  Enjoy the me-to-me present.  They're usually the best, and they usually fit.

Great news about Mr. Bullfrog.

Get well soon, Sheila.  Sounds like you really got hit with something.  Sleep helps with lots of things; it's our bodies way of telling us to slow down, you're movin' too fast.

Good morning friends. 

Whoa Sheila, you sicky! That bug you got sounds awful. Good thing you stayed home cuz you needed that bed time.

Sherri, that tree is beautiful! I love this time of year with all the trees turning. They are so gorgeous, although, last year they were more beautiful. I wonder what makes the difference in the turning leaves from year to year. Whoa, you have really been busy with the small projects! Good job! The RVing sounds like a lot of work!

Froggie, can't wait to see your lasting legacies quilt. I love civil war fabric and loved that collection.

Have a super morning everyone! BBL!

Lou Ann, that guy REALLY depends on you, perhaps a little too much. I bet he had a Momma that did everything for him. What a frustrating situation.

Thanks for the Chiro advice ladies. I know that is a great option and believe I've not ruled it out.

Barbara, I've not heard of the foiled potatoes in a crock pot with a chicken. Interesting!

OMGosh, it is raining SO much! I can hear it on the roof.

Kathy, I did not know they had State Fair recipes on Pinterest. I've always used Pinterest just for quilts; never researched recipes much. Oh, gosh, I bet there are some really great ones!
