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.

Was it the cheetah that was in the fire pit??    I don't know about that, maybe you gals can enjoy it with the gizzards...I'll pass.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 15 hours ago

Pass the Cheetos please !!!  Those "men" delivering the drinks sure are young.  Nice eye candy.    I'm gonna rub my hands in the sand to see if the orange will scrub off without water.  I crack me up.............

Hmmmm, a name for those of an age !!!  A couple come to mind off the top of my head but they aren't very elegant so we better wait for other suggestions.  

I've worn glasses for years so can't thread a needle without them on.  I am pretty pleased that I can bend over and touch the floor but I think I do bend my knees a bit.  

I decided to buy myself a present as a reward and it's something I've been wanting to do for quite some time.  I've wanted to get back to doing some crochet SO decided to join Annies Kit Club to make an afghan.   You get a starter kit and then supplies to make more blocks each month.  You get what you need to make 3 crochet blocks a month.    Anyway,  congratulations to ME.  (and if I get stuck Jane Ellen can help me out cause she crochets all the time)

I guess if I ate the cheetahs, you won't be seeing anymore tracks, Rita. Geesh.

Comment by Barbara S/IL 17 hours ago

Fun party and I think I ate more cheetahs than you, Kathleen. I sure enjoyed the crab too. CONGRATS Thel.

The 's' word is snow. 

Comment by Carol Ann Hinton 17 hours ago

Ooo, I didn't know there was ginger iced tea!  I want some!  What a great beach day today (now I have sand in my shower!)

The "s" word must be "sew", right Barbara?

Well, no one has admitted to being more than 78 today, so Rita and I are the "elders" here.  We need titles; anyone have a suggestion?  Something elegant!  I must admit I don't feel that old; I can still touch the floor with my fingertips when I bend over (with straight knees, now!  I am 5'5" -- down from 5"6-1/2" since knee surgeries).  I can read and thread a hand needle without glasses too.  (Not the sewing machine needle, however.  Unfortunately none of my beloved machines are self-threading.)

Good Night everybody!

If somebody doesn't help me eat these Cheetos I'm gonna polish off the whole bag myself!! They sure taste good while sitting on the beach. And the sand is doing wonders for my rough heels. Gotta get one of the men to bring me another glass of ginger iced tea! Oh here he comes now :)

I can hear you Rita.............you had to yell cause the waves crashing on the shore are so loud.  Don't you love that sound? 

What's the "s" word Barbara?  Congratulations on the right size blocks.  That's always a plus.  

Wow Robins all year round Kim.  I sure hope them come and visit us on the beach.  I haven't seen any yet here this year. 

Great that you got the 2nd block to come out right Froggie.  

I thought Moose would bring his elk antler to share with his doggie friends but Nope,  he tucked it under his pillow.    Those dogs are having fun.  

Well,  back to it !!

OH MY GOSH, Thel, how could I forget? We are supposed to be having a party today at Kim's house. Good thing that virtual parties can't be forgotten, and I am happy we are at the beach, with our happy feet in the wet, squishy sand. Lots of good food, yum. 

Carol Ann, you don't seem to be a day over 46! And I almost made a crack about 46 plus 28. That's 74, I think. You sure do seem young! I just hope I am as young as you when I get to my mid 70's. Yippee for you! 

I think Lou Ann is in her mid 70's too, Rita. You sure seem younger too. I think quilting keeps you young. 

Look at all that snow at Rita's house! I don't know what kind of tracks those are. Big, that's my guess. 

Those pups sure are enjoying their bones! Good that the cats are gone. Maybe they will listen to you now. The group, not the cats. I crack me up. 

Don't yell at us, Rita. We will listen. 

Ohhhh we are twins, Barbara! Good for us. That's funny, he was born on your anniversary. Oh good, I thought I was losing it, that ruler seemed just a bit thin to me, too. I did cut my second bunch of test strips with her ruler only, sewed using a scant quarter inch, and the block came out straight and right at 12.5". I am happy with it. 

My joints sure are hurting. I guess my Celebrex works better than I think it does. I am ready for Monday when I can start taking it again. I don't know where the day went, it just flew by. I also got in the swim spa, first time in about a week. It was very nice. 

Thanks for hosting us, Kim. The party sure is fun. The dogs are having a great time, too. The food is so good. Yum.

It is a kit Kathleen. And it was on sale so even better.

Our Robins are here year round now. We have been seeing large flocks of them all winter and for the past several years now. They used to come in the Spring and leave in the Fall.

Only 2 more weeks till the clocks change and we spring ahead.

A half year Thel!! That is so wonderful. You are a strong woman.

Kim, are you taking a Craftsy class or did you buy a kit? 

Strange tracks indeed, Rita. Too bad you don't have field cameras. Regarding osteoporosis, I used to take generic fosamax for years and it did absolutely nothing for me per bone scans. Now I go for a once a year infusion of Reclast. Can't say it's made improvements, but I don't think it's gotten worse, although I can never make heads nor tails of the readings. But I haven't been given news like yours, so far.
