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.

Sheila, said a little prayer for Tigger. Hope he's doing better today. These cats do seem to have 9 lives tho.  My tiger cat, Tommy, had numerous urinary and bladder problems and he lived to the ripe old age of 19! I sure do miss him.

Comment by Sheila Craft 10 hours ago

Nothing new since I posted about poor old Tigger. I don't know how old he is but, he's more than 10. I've only had him about 2 yrs. A lady my DD worked with retired and moved to AZ somewhere. Her son found her an apartment but, she could only take 2 pets. Since she had 3, she had to let 1 go. He's been an amazingly loving cat - always wanting to be in my lap or very close to me. He didn't want anything to do with DH which was surprising; but, I guess not so unusual since he lived his whole life with a single woman. He's wormed his way into my heart. Poor old guy has bad dander, had a miserable seeping eye that took almost a year to heal, and has been on antibiotics twice since coming to me. The Vet wants to keep an eye on him so his urinary tract doesn't become blocked. I lost a male cat to kidney failure a few years ago and the vet said it's fairly common in male neutered cats. Hope he pulls through. It's been such a rough winter for animals in this part of the world. A friend just lost her old Beagle to cancer. Even indoor animals are stressed over the weather. Just keep him in your thoughts, please.

Any news on your kitty, Sheila? Hope she's getting better.

That's funny, Barbara! My cousin a stuffed relleno! Lol! He got broccoli-potato soup today at my aunt's house.

Sheila, I hope your kitty gets better soon. It's aful to be apart from them and especially when they are your snuggle buddies.

Cousin Felipe is gonna be a stuffed relleno by the time he leaves for home. At least he knows he's appreciated.

Sheila, I do hope your Kitty is getting better.  I hate to leave my furry babies at the vet, but sometimes you just have to do it.  I know what you mean about missing them when they are not there to curl up with you.

Well so much for spending today sewing!  I had some chores to do and errands to run.  Just winding down and deciding if I want to sew at all tonight.  It's cloudy, still raining, and we are getting a cold front tomorrow.

Invited cousin Felipe for dinner tomorrow, so I'll make the chili rellenos then with the special sauce.  Wondering what we're going to have for dinner tonight.  Then my aunt stated she'd make rellenos on Friday for him.  Poor guy is going to be rellenoed out.   Felipe stated he wants to leave Friday night or Saturday, so we'll see.  He usually drives all night long and is in California by morning. 

Too funny Sheila!  So that's why we have our crick in our necks!  I wondering what I'd done to feel this way.

Hey There, Marnie!! Good to see you back with us! I don't envy the winter you folks have had - Mine has been pretty stinky, too. I was in NW PA during the blizzard of '78 - Yea, lucky me - NOT. I'm sure the baby's name won't be Froggie but, I've heard of some worse ones. Did you notice, she's going to "Hop" to "Sit" & sew?? And her pictures are always sideways - no wonder I've been to the Chiropractor for my neck so much this year! Ah, heck, I guess we'll keep her. What's a little pain between friends, huh?

You, too, Mary Alice?? Went home at lunch to give the puppy a chance to stretch her legs and it's gone from a drizzle to a steady rain. The local dog shelter is looking at having to evacuate again tonight or tomorrow due to flooding (they're building a new one but, it's not ready yet). Keep my kitty in your thoughts, please. He's at the Vet's going on the 2nd night. He's old and I'm sure he's scared but, he's got a UTI and I'm very worried. He always snuggles up on my arm at night and I really missed him last night!

Good morning!  

It's cloudy and raining here.  It sprinkles on and off, but that's good for the ground saturation.  Just finished breakfast, and I'm ready to sew today.  I have nothing else on my agenda, but to enjoy it sewing. Oh wait, I've got a stack of chili rellenos to make first.  Then I can sit and sew.

Marnie, great to have you back!  You should check in more often.

Multitasking, that's why we have so many UFO's, Mary Alice.

Well howdy, Marnie, I'm glad you checked in again! You should stop by more often. New grandbaby, how fun. Do you know if it's a boy or girl? My birthday is mid-April, so you could name the baby Froggie.

Mari is up early, and I didn't sleep very well, so I am dragging already. Maybe more caffeine would help. I better get hopppin', I am going to sit and sew.

Hi There Marnie. Glad to see you again. Hope that March brings warmer weather out your way. 

Well, school is closed again. This time due to freezing rain. Sophie slid across the deck to do her thing this morning. It should be better this afternoon but I will be staying in for now.

Mari, you are up early today. Back to your normal schedule?

Debra, you are a hoot! Hope you didn't try to go to Church and wonder why you were the only one there. (heehee)
