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.

Also went to Marshall's and found Mom some Easy Spirit slide in tennis shoes.  She needed a new pair badly!

Froggie, it's doctor time and you need some antibiotics.  Tell them to give you an allergy shot--those work fast!  Takes the headache away fast too when you've got a bad sinus infection.

Day 2 of going to town.  This time went with my aunt.  She took us to see the lawn mowers and sure enough, I was able to buy one at Sears, that's self propelled and has a start button.  Still uses gas and oil, but at least is easier to use being self propelled and it has a bag to catch everything.  The old one just mulched and we left it there.  Got eaten alive by mosquitos just setting it up and getting it started to see if it worked.  Then moved it into the shed. 

Perhaps I'll mow the lawn tomorrow.  For today, I'm beat!

And OH NO!  I've gotten addicted to Starbucks Mocha Frappacinos!  those are so yummy!

Love the pillow Thel!!!  So groovy!  Did you use the ruffle foot to do your pleating? The center is awesome!

I am going to call my doc in the morning, Thel. If he doesn't have any appointments, I will be slowly hoppin' to the acute care. That's my favorite place now. 'You gotta know when to NO 'em....' That's Kenny Rogers singing, can ya hear it?

Yes, I have been gargling with warm salt water a couple of times a day, Kathleen! I need to do that before bedtime. I use listerine twice a day, the blue kind. That yellow kind is too nasty. The salt water clears things out pretty good, but then it comes back. Oh sorry, TMI.

The only thing I got done today is a quilt label! Seriously? Oh and DGS1 came home for dinner. It was good to see him.

The pillow looks great with that pleated ruffle Thel! Nice finish.

Froggie, have you ever tried gargling with salt water for your throat? Or with "old school" listerine?  Listerine works for me. The salt water always works for my daughter.

Yes, Froggie,  the center was a design choice.   So sorry you are feeling so sick Froggie.  Sounds like to might be smart to make a doc visit.   Hey,  NO hopping!!!!

Safe travels Cindy. 

Aren't we all very wise.  We know when is the right time to be able to say NO. 

I'm gonna look at the directions for the little zipper bag now that I have a handful of zippers.  That may be my next project.

Yep, No is an answer but one lots of people don't want to hear. Like I used to say to my kids, What part of NO don't you understand? That usually kept them quiet. 

Will catch everyone later. Gotta get going so I can get to driving! Weather is much better today, yippee!

Comment by Mary S. 11 hours ago

Thel, your pillow is great!  I love the colors!  Agnes and Thel, NO is a valid answer, as Froggie says.  Use it when you need to!

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 11 hours ago

We don't want you to become a statistic either, Cindy!

Good for you, Thel! NO is a valid answer. Keep saying it to her, or you will be sorry. But you know that, don't you?

I was thinking it's probably the drug lady, too, Mary Alice!

I love it, Thel, and I really like the off center flower. It was a design choice, right?

That's funny, Anges! The guy will never learn, but if you make a little extra money, just put up with it for a bit. Just don't say YES. NO is still a valid answer.

My head sure does hurt, and my throat is so raw! I just may call the doc in the morning to get me some good drugs. Oh no, I will just visit Thel! I crack me up. I hope the DEA doesn't monitor our posts, they would take us seriously!

I think I will get hopppin' and do something. Not sure what, probably nothing that requires me to move fast.

Love your pillow Thel. So bright and cheery. The center is great! Did you sign it 'me, myself and I'? lol Yes, some people are user/abuser personalities and love to try to take advantage of the giver personalities. It's hard to have a forgiving spirit towards them after a while.

Cindy, have a safe trip.

Very foggy this AM. I may stay home if it gets worse or doesn't get better.
