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!

Paisley is in her new home.  She's got a wonderful new human mama and brother, along with other Chihuahua siblings.

Oh Anne posted twice,

Oh Ann posted twice.

I have been waiting to do that to someone else, I think it was Barbara did it to me.

I thought I would join blockheads but not sure I have the time or energy now that I applied.

Good morning on this damp, overcast day.  

Thanks for the Camel Mary Agnes. 

Yah,  half day Wednesday for Kim.   Have fun. 

Sounds like we're all having the same kind of weather today.  

Gotta get ready to think about going to paisley's adoption.

Good Morning!  It is a little cloudy and sprinkly here in NorCal this morning.  The problem is with the prolonged cool weather, summer will jump on us suddenly with both feet!  It is supposed to be close to 90 degrees by the end of next week.

Thank you all for your condolences for Mitzie.  I haven't had the heart to change my avatar (see left) yet.  I'm always thinking of her, and missing her.  She is probably our last pet.  I have some cat allergies and my doctor has been trying for some time (years!) to get me to not have a cat in the house.

Froggie, can you imagine what camel burps must be like??

Off to do about 2 tons of laundry today!  No washer or dryer at the mountain house.  This is going to be fun (not!).

Good morning.

It rained here overnight and it's sunny now but we're supposed to get more. I see cloud banks to the southwest. Is that your rain Froggie?

Oh what a sweet poem Cindy. Mitzie surely feel free and is chasing all over pet heaven now. Hugs to you Carol. You had her in your life for a long time.

My packing habits are sort of a hybrid of you and your Mom, Froggie. I get some things packed early and then throw the rest together the night before. I don't travel that much so don't have a lot of practice. In October, my sis, her DH, my brother and I are going on a geneology adventure to the east coast area. My dad's family (Reams) came from the Reamstown, PA. My sis is really into the geneology stuff and I am tagging along. We're driving and stopping several places along the way. Packing ought to be interesting.

Love the camel, Mary Agnes. Wonder if he can store coke in his hump.

Good news Rita. Hope you find answers for your ankle. All that walking and gofering probably doesn't help. Glad your DH is doing well.

Hope that family decides to take Izzy. She needs a buddy to play with and work off all that energy.

I didn't get anything done on blockheads yesterday afternoon. Block 8 is posted already. Guess I'd better get busy.

Happy day all.

Joe Green, AKA Mean Joe Green.  Defensive tackle pretty sure he played for the Steelers.

Little soggy this am, got about 2" rain in last 24 hours.  Can't believe how much my hostas grew since yesterday.  Trees are starting to leaf out, few spring bulbs in bloom.

 Carol Ann, my condolences on Mitzie.  Sounds like she was a good girl who was much loved. 

Got my appointment for my broken tooth's crown, Thursday 3pm.  My partially ripped off toe nail is also behaving.  Day #10 and no signs of infection which is a wonderful thing!  

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Your description of Izzy made me thing she would be a good Navy dog, Thel. they have to be very flexible and ready to travel to a new duty station. What a good Izzy.

That's a great poem, Cindy. A lady at sit and sew recited a poem yesterday and said the name was 'God Dog'. I don't find it when I google that name. It was a great poem.

I was always the gofer too, Rita. Trying to find a specific tool in all those toolchests and other spots is no fun. But I sure wish he could work on his car again.

Guess what day it is, MaryAgnes? ANd he's drinking a coke. That is hilarious. I wonder if he burps when he's finished? Remember that commercial, the kid gives the football guy, (whoever that was) his coke. Really, Mr. football, you can have it. Now who was that?

That's a good idea, Kim, just wash and repack. My mom would take a month to pack! She would get so excited for a trip, she would start throwing clothes in. Then, she would wear them, wash them, and put them back in the suitcase. How funny. When I traveled for work, it took me about an hour. The night before I left. Done.

It's cold and windy today, it's supposed to rain for several days. It stormed overnight too. I should check the gauge to see how much we got.

Good morning gifty's,

Carol Ann, hope you are feeling better soon. So sad that Mitzie has passed on. I echo the thoughts others have expressed here.

Still have to finish packing today. You wouldn't think it would take a week to pack one small bag. Good thing is that almost everything in it is staying packed( after washing of course) for the next trip on May 7th.

Well, time for work. Just a half day today.

Have a great day...
