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 one book this year (and there's a surprise about that!), Anita's 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.

Thanks, Fluff! It was very pretty here all day. Just keep the 4-7" of rain away we are supposed to get between tomorrow and Tuesday. My back yard can't take that much more rain. My couch is a lazy boy, and when I sit down, my feet go up! Of course it isn't elevated like docs mean, above your heart, but I sure feel a difference on days I don't sit and put my feet up.

I posted these on Littles, but thought I would share them here, too. I am sew excited about my garage door! I am excited to get my front door on Monday, too.

I talked to Fluff and she said she'll try to stop shading your areas gals.  It got sunny and nice here this afternoon (after the heat came on this AM) so mauybe it's working.

At least the cat is just sleeping on the the seed bed, if you know what I mean.

Had my Dr's visit this afternoon. Everything is status quo. The usual lectures about cutting the fatty foods and exercising more and , Oh Yeah...keep those feet elevated. ( I have bad circulation and the legs swell). 

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury yesterday

Oh Mary Alice, those seeds are never gonna grow! Can you put some sticks in the dirt standing straight up to discourage the cat? Of course I don't know anything about cats and their determination, but I know I wouldn't want to sit on something that would be poking me!

I see the goat now! It sure does have long hair. At first it looked like a pelt, then I saw a face. I crack me up. And that kid peering out reminds me of DGS2. What's up with that?

Oh Mom, what are you thinking? At least she didn't drink the sugar water. Put a sticky note on the pan next time.

I better look at the camels again, people are seeing things I didn't. It's sunny here today, I should take Missy for a walk today while we can. But I also have to play in the quilting room.

Comment by Sheila Craft yesterday

Well, I had to do a double-take of the sampler quilt, Barbara - I didn't see the quilt inspector in my first look-see! And, please move Fluff to another quilt as it's been grey & icky here all darned week!

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday

Mary Alice, I think it's a goat. Wonder what the story is behind this picture. Mari, fess up. LOL

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Mari, isn't there a baby camel to the left side?  Maybe my eyes are bonkers?

Well just as I feared.  Here Smokey "inspecting" those mystery yellow and orange flower seeds.


I'd say he's found a new lounging area.  Meanwhile I've made the hummingbird nectar twice and both times I set it aside to cool off.  BOTH times mom threw it away.  Dang it, I can't have nothing.  I'm gonna go sew.  It's the only thing no one takes away, because they don't want to cut fabric into tiny pieces and sew it back together.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

Thanks for the explanation, Barbara! I was sew confused. And the sun is shining this morning, tell Fluff I said thank you!

It's going to be a busy day today, this morning we have to pick up DGS1's car and then I have to go to the knee doc for a check up, and this afternoon the garage door gets installed. I should be able to quilt then.

Awesome quilt Barbara! Love the little quilt inspector! And to think that cutie Fluff is the reason it gray, cloudy and rainy Oklahoma..

We definitely can't get past a Wednesday without our camel picture.
