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.

Buddy is probably just a little miffed with you right now, Thel, and he will probably never be grateful for the vet services, but you have surely made his life much better, whether he knows it or not.

Hiya, Rita!  Nice to see your smiling face here.  Glad you've made it to your own home now.  It is lovely to sleep in one's own bed.  Finn made a pot roast?  I'm impressed; I don't think DH could do one, but if I asked he'd sure try!  He'd probably even try to brush my hair.  It's good for men to become caregivers once in awhile.  They expect a lot of attention from us!

Well, good evening my friend !  I can't even imagine trying to function without arms.  I bet it does feel good to be in your own bed.   It's awesome that Finn is right there to provide what you need.  AND cooking.  See men can follow directions when they have a good reason to.  Hugs and lots of prayers for your continued healing.  

It's a quiet evening here.  Buddy is still resting and everyone else is low key.  Crazy how one family member being in a different mood can affect the whole house.  I hope he's back to his perky self tomorrow.

Hi everyone,I am home, so good to sleep in my own bed,first since March 18.Finn has worked so hard getting things ready,life is hard with no arms. He made us a great pot roast dinner, he followed directions .Pretty well. I have very strange hair,I usually do a little backcomb,but no lucky to reach sides with a brush

I think you're right on the reason for the chill Kathleen.  And they have it set for when the place gets busy, we were there early.  Gotta remember to have a sweater with me when I go out.  I'll probably forget before next outing being they are so infrequent.  

I really like Quiltmakers mag too.  It was my favorite when I was getting mags on a regular basis.  I haven't gotten a new one in years.  

Hopefully DB will eat up some of that food for you Barbara.  

Buddy is not happy with me since he got home.  I'm told he was a good boy at the docs.  I hope he decides he likes me by the end of the evening.

Looks like a wonderful time there at the cabin, Froggie . Is that your bed/design wall? Looks comfy.

Happy anniversary Marilyn! 

Glad you got to meet the ladies, Thel. Too bad the eatery was so cold. I think Kathleen may be on to something.

I got a couple of prayer blankets hemmed and labelled. Then I cut pieces for some of the BH tile blocks as seen in the Quiltmaker mag. Also sorted my stack of Quiltmaker mags. I have most of the issues dating back to 2008. Now I have two big stacks of other mags to bring to QOV for the gals. What they don't want can go in the guild sale.

DB will be over tomorrow. He wants to use my computer. He and other DB just got back from a little trip and he found some antiques he wants to research. Maybe I'll be able to get him to eat some of the ham and beans.

Good that you still managed a nice time meeting everyone, even though it was cold in the restaurant. It's always a trick dressing to eat out. Seems they have the climate in favor of the staff who are doing all the running around instead of the customers who are sitting still. Take a nice hot bath and get in your jammies and warm up.

Just got back home.  It was wonderful to meet everyone, well, there are five of us, but nice to meet in person.  The food and service was good but it was so darn cold in the restaurant that it wasn't really relaxing.  Numb fingertips aren't conducive to lingering over dinner.

Sounds like a great anniversary Marilyn.  Congratulations !!!

Wack World!  You crack me up Mary Alice.   

WOW,  that looks so inviting and relaxing Froggie.  You must be having a ball.    Love your wall hanging.  The colors are great.  Who's watching over Mr. B?  

Guess I better let them know Buddy can be returned now that I'm home.

Happy Anniversary, Marilyn! I love the soup, salad, and breadsticks at Olive Garden. Don't get there much anymore though.

Froggie, you sure are making great progress! The room sure does look comfy.

That is my wall hanging I started last August. and where I sit to see. When the sun is out, it’s at my back, and gives nice light from behind me. And the bedroom I sleep in. What a nice comfy and cozy bed it is. D
