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!

Good morning,

A little sun is popping out this morning. It rained just about all day yesterday. Everything is lush and green around here this year.

We went to the firehouse last night to do rig checks, then I went to my meeting. We came home and had a quiet night on squad. It's a wonderful thing.

Today should be a fairly easy day at work and I have a grocery delivery scheduled for later this afternoon. DH has a meeting tonight so it will be another quiet one around here I hope.

Hope your eye is feeling better today Barbara.

Hope Finn is feeling better also. Hope everything goes well at the surgeon's Rita.

Have a great day...

Just stopping in quick to say I will be absent for the next few days. Going to visit mom. I'm sure I'll have at least five pages to catch up on when I return :)

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

I know what you mean, Thel, sometimes it's a PBJ for dinner because your idea turned out nasty. Here's a famous Bazemore messed up dinner story. Nanny made beef stroganoff, gave some to Mr. B and his sister, and she was going to wait until Papa came home to eat. They told her it was nasty, and were doing all those things kids do, I guess. She was griping at them, telling them to eat it, it wasn't nasty. Then she tasted it. She had put a ton of dried mustard in it. She apologized and threw it all out. I have heard that story so many times I think I was there. 

Oh I bet that is ugly, Barbara. That will take a long time to clear up. I'm glad you didn't get the headache that I do. 

We always want you to check in, Rita. Doesn't matter if you have done anything crafty or not. We just want to see your smiling face. Don't do too much housework. It causes pain. 

I decided to cut out some fabric today, instead of sew. Being as mad as I was, I figured that was better than sewing. I cut out 10 pillowcases, and have 5 more ready to cut. If I make pillowcases, I can use up all that fabric, and not need batting. 

I went to get my hair cut, it feels so good. Then I picked up some dinner. I didn't want to cook. It was nice and easy.

Ouch Barbara. Rest that eye. Bake tomorrow.

Rita, I hope all goes well with your doctor visit tomorrow, and that Finn feels better. I wonder if he's experiencing allergies. That can give you a spacey head feeling.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO on Monday

I rarely seem to accomplish what I need to on the phone, BUT emails work well for me.  And when it's not going all that well,  if it's a company I'm receiving service from or bought something from the:  "I'll just post on my Facebook page about how this has all gone, along with screen shots of emails."  The crazy thing, last time I did that, my problem was resolved within a couple hours.  Facebook can be a very powerful tool. 

Darn on that hematoma Barbara.  Hope you can relax and enjoy the rest of your day.  

I sure hope things are positive for you at the surgeon visit tomorrow Rita.  Not good that Finn is feeling down.  I hope he feels better soon.   The family reunion sounds like a nice visit.  

Boy is it HOT out !  

Comment by Rita Crofoot on Monday

HI quick check in, I am staying current but not much to contribute crafty wise, just trying to stay caught up with house work. I did have a nice family reunion at my niece's on Sat, DD1 drove me, since my arm still not strong enough to do steering wheel, I see surgeon tomorrow, so will know more then. Finn laying down, didn't feel well all last week, and starting another one now. Spacey head issues.

I got my little piggy block kit, hope I can get to it, won't be today, chores list too long, and probably not tomorrow, Dr appt and 60 mile round trip, But I will find a time. 

Hope your eye feels better Barbara, ouch.

Comment by Barbara S/IL on Monday

I'm back from my outing. The shot wasn't as easy this time. He hit a little blood vessel so I have a big hematoma in the lower part of my eye and it looks ugly. They only dilate the right eye so I can function OK. I don't get a headache from it thankfully.

Got my groceries so I can make more zucchini bread if I want.

Yesterday I emailed back and forth with a company and they were great about their response. I hope your phone calls go better, Froggie.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) on Monday

I couldn't go to the grocery store after getting a shot in my eye, Barbara. The dilation stuff gives me a headace. Good luck with the shot. 

I will be there on Sunday for chicken bbq, Kim. Yum. 

I didn't hear about the falling stars. I guess I missed them. It's been cloudy here, so we might not have been able to see them. It's been raining and drizzly all day today. 

I got in the quilting room, then realized I have phone calls to make. Nothing has gotten resolved from 2 of 3 calls. Just wait and see. Good grief, if other people did their jobs, I wouldn't have to prod them on. That was supposed to go away when I retired, but it's changed from the IT department to any other company I deal with. Good grief. No wonder I can't lose weight, I had two ding dongs with lunch.

Good afternoon.   I decided to spend the morning playing !   I got the center done on my Jelly Roll Race 3.0 last night.  It's gonna be 1st border today.  The way it's working out I'll be doing a matching table runner.  Yup. 

As you know, I love experimenting with recipes.  Some work out great, others not so much but still edible.  I crack me up.    Emm a BLT Barbara, can I com eover?   I didn't get out and star watch.  

Emmm, chicken BBQ.  I'm sure that'll be great.  I hope the weather is good for it.  

I've been gifting some of the stuff that's taking up space around here.  Feels good and gives me some room to tidy things up.  

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury on Monday

Barbara, I looked a couple times for the meteor shower but saw nothing. It's too bright in my neighborhood, not to mention big trees.
