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!

Thank you so much for the prayer Kathleen.   The nearest shelter is about 35 miles away but when a friend checked earlier, they have a waiting list of people within their own area so could add her to it, but it'd do no good.  I'm not positive just where she's bunking down but one of my rescue friends who also works at Safe Passage connected with her and got her some immediate help.  She's had a hot meal, has thermoses full of hot cocoa and piles of blankets and warm clothes.   I know this immediate help is the result of so many prayers.

Oh my goodness, Thel, I cannot imagine this poor girl being homeless in the weather you are experiencing lately. How far away is the closest shelter in your area? I just said a quick prayer for her.

The gal who surrendered Mojo said he was a mix but she didn't know with 'what'.  His hair is to thin and wispy, it's crazy. 

Sometimes people that don't have a clue end up elected when the job isn't highly desirable.    Can't wait to see your Good Fortune Kim.  

Nice work Barbara.  Love the fussy cutting on the fabric for the 12" block.  Too nice.  I was thinking possum too.  

Yah,  I like the pouch AND the candy !! 

Hmmm wonder if Elastigirl will end up with cellulite as she ages.  You know.......all stretched out and loose from a lifetime of using that elastic.  I crack me up!

Never thought of a bow in a boy dogs hair, he would be cute as all get out, but I bet he wouldn't leave it for long.  Goodness his ears are alert, he doesn't miss a sound.  If a cat walks across the room he hears it and is up to watch.  

I got sidetracked with helping a friend trying to help a friend with clothes and necessities.  The 'friend of a friend' is homeless and needs clothes and warm outer wear so a few of us have gotten together and organizing a winter wardrobe for her.  One of the needs is then something for all this stuff to go into.  So I got to thinking when Maddy asked if I might have a crate or old suitcase or anything.  Well,  I decided to empty a case on wheels I have for her.  This way she can have her stuff inside and put her tent and bigger stuff strapped to the handle (I put some bungie cords inside it with the clothes).  and YES, this woman finds a place for her tent at night.  My heart just breaks. There are no homeless shelters locally.  

Please pray for this young girl.

I had to look it up. I couldn't remember the name of the movie, but it's The Incredibles, and Addie has lately given us all names from the movie. She told me that I'm Elastigirl. So she'd probably give the animals names from that movie :)

Oops - Sorry Emmalee. Have funnaming those babes. 

Yes I be t Addie would come up with some doozies.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury 11 hours ago

That's a cute little candy pouch, Barbara. Pretty block too. And I think you mean Emmalee; she's the one picking the animal names. Although I'm sure Addie would come up with some good ones!

Mojo would look cute with a bow in his hair. Sweet picture.

Here's my Kimberbell in the hoop project.

and a Blockheads 12" block for this week.

Sounds like you're sewing to me, Thel. Nobody would kick you out. How woul we keep up with handsome Keagan?

It was sunny all day here but is supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow. Winter just keeps going.

Hmm... do the donkeys stomp on the rats? Are you sure it wasn't a possum? I could send Sophie over to 'kill' it. Can hardly wait to hear the names that Addie picks.

Sounds like you are getting a lot done Thel. Is Mojo a purebred Maltese? Their coat should be very long and silky. 

We will have an election in April. The previous Captain left abruptly so we had an emergency election in December. The Assistant Captain at the time was elected Captain and this woman decided she wanted to be assistant captain and was elected then. Many because no one else wants to do it. I would have to assume that she will run again in April. I just wish that she had some common sense but she certainly didn't get any when she got that degrees from Harvard.

I got lots of sewing done today. I have been working on the borders for Good Fortune. I am almost done with it. I may do one more border though to make it a bit bigger. I want it to fit the double bed in Florida.

I've lost my list Kathleen, so don't even know what February would be.  BUT that's ok because I have a new focus with the upcoming fair.  Everything I'm working on will be for the fair and gonna let "the moment" motivate me.  Right now my snow globe is out and the binding is in process.  I have a whole pile of Littles waiting to be sandwiched.  I'm gonna pick one of those to try the fleece backing on.  Figure best to experiment on something small.  

I've had lunch and laundry is in the washer, the swing table is cleaned off and the binding is ready to press in half.  OH and the herd is all fed, Moose is in play mode.  He keeps bringing me his favorite toy and whacking me against the arm to grab, tug and pull, then throw.  He cracks me up.  

No amount of brushing stops all that craziness in Mojo's hair.  I trimmed his face, sneaking up on him a bit at a time.  I have no idea what the groom for a Maltese is supposed to look like, just couldn't stand all that hair in his eyes and mouth.    He does love that Teddy.  

OH and a pot of tea is brewed.

Cute pic, Thel. I hope you don't get banished either because I'd be right behind you! I haven't gotten to February's project yet, and I'll be going to mom's for another four days this coming week. That doesn't leave much of February to get to sewing!
