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!

Awesome party! It was great celebrating your accomplishment Thel!  Just getting home!  Hit some rainstorms on the way back.  All we got here was a sprinkling, but I'm hoping on more rain later.

I NEED to go to farmer's market.  Got tickets for mom for $50 of fresh produce.  They are good till November.  Anyone wanna go with us.  I hear the farmers market here is awesome--live music, popcorn, and people walk their dogs all over downtown here.  I'd like some fresh tomatoes,  home grown honey, and eggplants.

Still lazy, so I think I'm going to fire up the sewing machine and play all day!

Wow, you are a a great hostess, Thel. The recliners, and the pool were great. And there were no bugs thanks to the tiki torches. What a great time, everyone cooks some good desserts. And Thels Coke, you crack me up too. I knew there was a reason the crescent moon looked so grand when I was flying home, I forgot it was the Autumn Equinox! I love me an Equinox. So much that I drive one. I crack me up. Welcome to Autumn! I am going to start putting my Halloween stuff out today. That's a good idea. 

Mama is watching you with pride, Thel. And she is singing to you, and wearing a hat. We celebrated 28, now we are working on 29 and celebrating Autumn. Sew much fun around here. 

Oh good, Cindy, pretty pictures of pretty DD on a pretty island! Have fun, and of course, we will love to see the pics. 

I forgot to say, Baby sure is vocal. What a funny kitty. Funny how animals know what it's time to do. Chocolate sure did stick close to me after I got home yesterday. He was in his kennel for 8 hours. I'ts been a long time since he's done that. 

I will drive you home, MaryAgnes! We will virtually come up with the money to get everything fixed. I don't know how they sell them, but we sure do buy the things. I haven't been to the farmer's market all summer long. Bad Froggie! 

Well, surgery went well. Instead of fusing the ankle, he put screws in. Straightened the foot and had to lengthen the Achilles's tendon. Then he sent him home, and said don't put any weight on it for two months. Seriously? You should put him in traction for two months. He slept in his chair, and got up once this morning to go to the bathroom. That was an adventure. Now he's back in his chair and asleep, full of food and pain pill. I think I am good to hide in the quilting room for a while. Chocolate slept in the bed with me all night. I think he enjoyed that, he had lots of room to spread out. 

Forge on to the next 28 days, Thel! We can do it with you. You can do it with us. Together.

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

I'm so envious, Barbara.  I haven't had many tomatoes this year.  I never have enough tomatoes, fresh from the garden, ripe and juicy and delicious. How can supermarkets sell what they claim to be tomatoes--horrible, tasteless, mealy, red things?  Thanks for the recipe.  When you mentioned it I saw you unwrapping lots of twinkies and turning them into a cake somehow.  Glad I was wrong.

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

Slow down, Mary Alice.  I'm exhausted just listening to you.

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

Good Morning.  Another beautiful day in the neighborhood.  What a pleasure to wake up and be able to see it.  I didn't expect to get the "cloud" in my implanted lens zapped yesterday but it turned out the doctor had the laser machine right there in his office.  And I made an appointment to get my right cataract removed on October 30.  Now to decide if I want to spend $2,000 which I don't have on a special lens that will correct my astigmatism.  Anyone available to escort me home after the surgery?

Great party.  We have to do that more often. 

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Thank you Cindy.  The support and encouragement really is helping. 

What a fun day that'll be.  She'll cherish those pictures forever.  Have a great time.  

Baby is funny.  When she knows we should be in bed she is very vocal.  It's enough to drive a girl crazy.  It's a different voice than her "I'm hungry" voice too.    Guess it's time to give in.  I'm so amped up from the party.  I hope I can fall asleep.  

Comment by Cindy yesterday

Where did my earlier post go? Hmmm, curiouser and curiouser. Anyhoo, I am beat tonight. Guess too much flying across the country, but it was so worth it! Really is special when you can celebrate a special achievement with your friends. Keep it up Thel. And by the way, I can "hear" the difference in your postings. 

Kim, safe travels to Florida. Just hope you don't find more things missing.

Kathlern, your DD will like the wall hanging. It turned out very nicely! Great job.

Worked on the baby quilt today, have it basted and ready to quilt. Got some more things sorted and loaded in the car to take and donate. Just where does it all come from?!?!  Two loads of laundry done, now to sort my clothes, par down. So many that I no longer wear.

Tomorrow DD and I plan to go and take some pictures of her at different places around the island. Suppose to be nice weather so these clouds better be heading out.  Yes I will post one here.

Well time to call it a night. Catch everyone tomorrow!

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Yup,  OK so I lied.  My computer wasn't acting up I was outside by the pool enjoying the stars and the great company.   Emm all the goodies have been delicious.  

Thank you all for celebrating with me and for the encouragement to help me stick to it..........some mama would say "You gotta have stick-to-it-tive-ness."  Yup, she really used to say that.   I'm sure she's watching me with pride.  

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

First of all I need to say,  Sorry I haven't been here for hours,  my computer has been giving me trouble and didn't wanna party.  

Now I'll catch up.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury yesterday

I think I neglected to thank everyone for the compliments on my Bake wall hanging. And thank you for helping me to decide on the binding too.
