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!

Doggone it Froggie, I swear I tried to make my tablet understand me. I guess you are a wild one so maybe it knows better than me. Lol Happy that you have power back.

I almost got the wall hanging done today but had to pick up my grocery order. I just have a pieced border to make to have a flimsy. I might just let it stay up until Christmas. 

Rita, I had never heard of leaving part of the gallbladder. I guess I've been out of the loop for too long. I would be worried if he starts running a fever or if the pain continues. Call your Dr. (Surgeon) to report how he's feeling if you are worried. I hope they gave him an antibiotic. 

Your blocks are great Alice. It sounds like you're getting a nice respite.

My grocery order had a few changes. They were out of Cheetos.( insert sad face here) and made a few substitutes. One was black moon drop grapes. Boy are they sweet.

I saw a post a few days ago on FB from Thel with a little snow but I don't think I have seen anything since then.

I totally agree with Kathleen Mary Alice. 

Love your fabrics  Mary Alice. I can't wait to see if I can use that same background fabric in this year's mystery. I sure hope I can.

Beautiful blocks, Mary Alice. That is a great fabric line.

Listen to mom's OT. Otherwise you'll be back to doing everything that your mom knows how to do for herself.

You all stay safe now, you hear!!  Now I sound like Jed Clampit--LOL!

Froggie, no more yard work.  

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza 7 hours ago

Froggie glad you've got power!  I agree, you need some rest now!

I've always want to sit out and just watch the moon and stars, but it's too cold right now.  We are supposed to have a Blue Moon tomorrow, and now I've got that song in my head.

Took a while to get back as OT came and worked with mom. She told me to help her less in the shower.  So I'm just turning on the water, and shampooing her hair.  She does the rest.  And she's to dress herself too.

Wanted to put up my blocks from Sewcialites. So here's block 5 and 6

Now we need to get Thel to check in. Wonder if she had ice and sleet there too?  Anyone see her on FB?

Glad you have power Froggie. So happy to hear that. I saw the Frontier but after my post this morning I figured that was nothing.  I wonder if my SIL in Edmond has power. 

The moon is so bright and full looking tonight and I can see the planet Mars not very far from it when I went outside to lock the chickens up for the night.

Glad to see you back Froggie! And so good that the guys helped with the cleanup.  Now you deserve another day of R & R! Hurray for power and the Mustang Lineman!

Glad you have power now, Froggie. I think you need another couple days on the couch under the quilt to rest and recover from all that tree limb cleaning work.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 8 hours ago

I wasn't going to comment on anyone's post, but I think Barbara just called me Frontier! Her autocorrect cracks me up. 

I am so sorry I didn't get  here this morning. DGS2 and I went outside to start cleaning the tree limbs, and we got three areas mostly done. There's still the really small pieces that we will rake up later. That is a lot of work! We are opting for the burn pile instead of bundling and cutting and putting at the street. That just seems hard. And a burn pile is so much fun! I am a pyromaniac. 

It was funny because I had just gotten out of the shower when the power came back on. DGS2 said he just turned off his water and touched the shower curtain to get out of the shower, and poof! we had power!!! Then my fan in the bedroom went out. I screamed NOOOOO! Because I thought the power went out again. But it was just the fan. We had another fan in the garage, so DGS2 got it for me and now we are good for tonight. I really hate sleeping without any air movement and the noise of the fan. ANyway, our cable and internet are out now. Yeah, us and the rest of OK I suppose. Oh and I think the people that came to fix our power was an OGE guy, and another truck from a different state. They were parked next door, because it was the transformer behind that house. That feeds 5 houses, so we are usually at the bottom of the list. Thank God we have power now, I am so hopppy! 

But, working in the yard, all that limb dragging, made my old body hurt! I have rubbed some of that lotion with CBD on my joints, and they still hurt. It probably helped. That's some good stuff, DGS1 gets it at American Eagle. 

That's about it from Mustang. All the news that has happened is ice and power. I have sat on the couch for three days, under a quilt all day and evening. 

Yeah, I always listen to music during the day. I know I could have put it on my phone, but recharging it was a pain! So, the music that has been going through my brain for four days is Glen Campbell, I am the Lineman for the County. Just change some of those words to Mustang and Joyce Terrace, and I had me a new song going on! I crack me up. My brain is made up of quilting and songs.
