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.

Have fun, Anne. Buy out Mardel's so they have to buy more.

Pancho with his big sombrero, and margarita in hand, Barbara?

I love that fine ME thread, Barbara. It sure is expensive, though. The pattern doesn't show up, Barbara, just a pic of the placemat. I think it would be a good one.

Thanks, Thel. So far, so good. I haven't even emptied the dishwasher. Just working on DSIL's gift. Almost finished, I just have to sew down the binding. It's small, so it won't take long. Yes, you shared that pic, but apparently, Carol Ann and Kathleen were gone that day. It's such a sweet pic. MaryAgne's pic, is not so sweet. Yuck, what would you do if a camel put his mouth over your head? I would find the nearest bathroom, and stick my head under running water for an hour.

I better get back to my Santa, there are tons of projects waiting in the wings for me. There are so many started projects, it makes me buggier when I look at how many projects I have started. Focus, Froggie, Focus!

Good morning.  Another cooler day in the 70s.  Very nice. 

Your walk sounds wonderful Mary Agnes.  Chou sure does have a fan club.  I think it's so wonderful when dogs are so well socialized. 

My lips are sealed Froggie..............have a great time enjoying your day. 

Yes, Cara-mel will share the same rescue as BB.  It might be a couple weeks yet, but that's ok.  She's doing well here. 

Guess it's time to get something done.   Looks like the rain is gonna show up this afternoon. 

Can't recall if I showed you Moose and Cara-mel.

How fun Mary Agnes. That Chou is quite the socializer. 

It cracked me up too, when I saw what the computer had decided to print. I hope Pancho doesn't show up to do the mammo. I don't think the X-ray dept offers Margeuritsa but that would certainly make things more pleasant.

I tested out my lettering. I think it's going to work for those hankies. I need to get some of that extra fine thread though. I can pick it up on Friday when I go to the sewing center for a woven cloth basket class. 

The Grandma's Kitchen first block is posted if anyone's interested. These will be larger blocks. They will seem huge after all these 6" blocks I've been doing.

It's t-storms today. Beanie thinks he wants to go out but I'm discouraging that notion. I have my machines unplugged, too.

Will Cara-mel go to the same rescue as BB, Thel? So sad that the other kitten hasn't been found. 

Should we choose a pattern for the next project? Anyone have an idea? Mug rug, table runner, t-shirt makeover, stuffed animal?? So many possibilities.

OMG MaryAgnes you are so right..
And NYC sounds so perfect for that walk.
All packed up.. now just hanging out waiting to leave in the morning.
Will stay posted.. be good, stay well. Love you caramel. And you,too Chou..

You crack me up too, Kim. I wondered what a Mexican and mammo is too. My mammo place doesn't offer that combination.
That is tough, Kathleen. Big quilty hugs for you and mom.
Daggum it, it's not a Mexican. Which reminds me, I need to have that done too, and it's time to schedule my mammo.
That woman needs to have all her pets taken away, Thel. What is her problem? Thank God they rescued Caramel. She's sew sweet, sew tiny. Reminds me of DD1, she was sew tiny when she was born.

Good idea, Kathy, I will have a margarita with my mammo. Forget the food. No, don't do that, that's one of the best food and drink combinations, Mexican food and a margarita.

Chou really knows where to go to see his friends doesn't he, MaryAgnes? I bet that was fun. It's hard to let the lasagna sit without cutting into it immediately.

Don't tell anyone, but I get to stay home all day long! I think I will try and finish the Santa for DSIL1, and get it ready to mail. His birthday is next Wednesday. DD1's present was late, his might accidentally be on time~
