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.

Very nice finishes Sheila.

Oh that sounds so good Thel. Makes me long for the greens my mom used to make. My sis does my mom's grocery shopping. I should have her pick up a greens variety and then have my mom guide me how she used to fix them. I think she'd enjoy guiding me and then we'd both enjoy eating them!! Now I've made myself hungry. I should go to bed. Really am tired. Good night all!

Wow,  just beautiful Barbara !!!   Your inspector looks very cozy too.  She's doing a great job. 

Mixed greens that included a variety.  I could tell kale, swiss chard, beet greens and ???.   I sautéed Vidalia onions and small sweet pepper mix to go with it.  Came out so so good.  I'm gonna go much on some more now .  

Yummy enchiladas!!  

My body decided to do a long unexpected nap.  Now to wake up and get back to my snow globe.

I made this little (5x5) in the hoop coaster for my DSIL. Gave it to her a few weeks ago along with a Dragonfly pillow (forgot to get a picture of it).

Pillow I finished today for a co-worker who got married yesterday in Jamaica.

Thel, that woman sounds like one to keep at a distance. Good job fluffing her off!!

Those greens look delicious Thel!! I bet it was tasty. Are those yellow and orange peppers on there too?

Barbara, the quilt is beautiful!!

Oooooooh, Barbara, that's luscious! Sophie's a brave girl to keep watch and make sure no one tries to snatch it!

Looks Yummy, Thel! DH did enchilada's tonight. He was going to fix them the last 2 nights and ended up out late so I munced on a Frittata those 2 nights. Just as good on night 2 as on night 1, if I say so myself.

Ther sure are some strange people out there, Thel. Good that you have a locked gate. For a small town, you sure get a lot of drama.

Oh no Froggie. Spa time for Destiny. Hope it's nothing serious. 

I didn't even turn my ME machine on. Tomorrow for sure.

Got my borders on. Sophie helped hole the top down so I could take a pic.

What a sweet pic of 'little' Moose and Beanie. I'm sure I would have done the same thing you did. 

That's good news from Mom's house, Kathleen. And I forgot to say, I found my wedding dress pattern in the UCO bunch. In the size I wear today. Yes, I made my own wedding dress, it was just a plain fabric and no fancy stuff, so I was able to make it and it fit good. We had a small ceremony at my Uncle's house. 

She is nuts, Thel. I would stay away from her, too! There were people at work that just watched to see what other people were doing, and report it to someone else, and embellish on what had happened. Good grief, just leave me alone. And you really didn't talk to these people to give them more to gossip about. That's a lot of veggies, what all is in there? I bet it was very yummy. I love fresh veggies. 

I got my October Santa finished, and the November almost finished. I really have to take my Destiny in. She was doing wacky things today, not breaking needles, but missing stitches, with the needle threaded. And there was a bunch of tiny threads in the bobbin area. I had just cleaned it before I started the October! And thread balling up on the top of the fabric. She needs lots of professional help. She will go to the spa on Tuesday.

FREE veggies from the food pantry have allowed me to make this amazing dish.  It's lasting me a while to complete enjoying it.
