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!

I call my hens all different names Barbara. Normally if I want them to come and they are out free ranging all I have to say is "Girls" and they all come running. I do have one special little girl that I call Hop along Cassidy. Cassie for short. She has a bum leg and she hops more than walks and she's just so cute. She is a Gold Wyandotte.

Hope your storms not to bad Carol Ann.

Usually love chicken strips, Froggie, but not so much McD's.  Ours here are like rubber and have an "off" taste in the breading.  I choose something else when I go there.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) on Wednesday

There you are, Thel. I'm glad you are healthy and well fed. Who is feeding you? Is Joe bringing food over? 

Oh hold on tight, Carol Ann! That must be the storm that is supposed to hit us on Saturday. I bet those fish are fun and fanciful. I hope your power adn internet both stay on. It makes me grumpy when they go out. 

Mr. B had his appointment, we waited almost an hour for the doc. He's usually pretty much on time. Got his feet scanned or whatever they call it to get his new shoes. Then we picked up Mcdonalds on the way home. I got chicken strips, they were ok. I'd rather have something else. My McDonald's is remodeling, so the inside is closed. It should take about a month to finish. 

I need to get in the quilting room, after all that waiting and getting so-so tasting take out. Him and DGS2 were happy.

Waiting for the monster storm to roar into the valley today!  They are predicting winds to 60mph and lots of rain -- snow at the mountain house, sooooo. .  Staying home, reading and then I'll work on my "fanciful fish" blocks.  There are 12 all together and I have completed (almost) 7.  Having a fisheries educated DH, all my fish are fanciful to him.  He's a stickler for details, so I never pretend to make actual fish for him.  I'd miss some detail that he'd be quick to point out.  I'll post photos later.  I'm still getting used to the new computer and have not attempted photo duplicating yet.

Have a great day, everyone.  We are hunkering down and hoping not to lose power!

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO on Wednesday

Geeze, has it really been since Monday I was here.  I'm loosing it.  I have been so busy with the snow and the puppies and keeping on top of everything.  Now I need to find time to catch up.  

Healthy and well fed!  That's the quick update.

It sounds like a great birthday, Kathleen. Especially the wishes and hugs from the kids! 

I like Rhode Island Red, Barbara. Great name, and your block is so much fun! Yeah, a little button would be nice. You need to go to those classes with Kim to get some more vegetarian recipes. 

Mr. B has appointment 2 of 3 this morning. It's foggy outside, not too bad, but it' there. Fog seems to be a bigger deal here than it was in WA. It was foggy there all the time. Maybe I can get my two projects from yesterday finished this afternoon. And, like Kathleen, I have half of my meal from yesterday left. Chicken parmesan, it was such a big portion! I think we all brought food home. they were very generous. And delicious! Yum. 

I better get hopppin' so I can get the kitchen clean and get me dressed to go play chauffer.

Food morning. It's still dark here. 

I deleted that post. I don't know why there was such a big blank space. 

Kim, do you have names for your hens? I made the chicken block and thought I might name my 'Rhode Island Red' hen after one of yours instead of calling her Mrs. Cluckers.

She still needs her eye. I'm thinking of using a button or bead.

I did encourage Lou Ann and Mary Agnes to check in. I miss them too.

I don't know if Thel is still having connection problems or not. She's posted on FB. I wonder how she's getting along with those puppies, too. She has been trying to get her driveway cleared.

I think the roads are OK today. We might get a little snow tonight and then a storm on the weekend with wind. Yuck.

My DIL is vegetarian so I try to have veggie meal offerings for her when they come. Rhere are some really good recipes out there.

Comment by Kim Webb on Wednesday

Good morning, another nice day here. Maybe some rain or snow for the weekend though.

The cooking demonstration was really good last night. The food was great also and all plant based. I enjoyed it all.

Working this morning and then I have bowling tonight.

The puppies must be keeping Thel busy. I don't think we heard from her yesterday or I just missed it.

I haven't started the borders yet on the mystery quilt but i have managed to work on my rooster counted cross stitch for a while yesterday afternoon while the sun was coming through the window. 

Well, time to get ready for work.

Have a great day...

Happy birthday Kathleen!  So happy you had a great day!

Half my day went getting moms commodities.  Got home and unpacked them, then separated some to give a neighbor.  I tried calling her, but her husband said she was talking long distance on FaceTime with one of her kids, and he'd have her call me later.  Spent time sewing the 3 blocks I had left to get sewn before she called back. Packed up truck and took her the food I'd set aside. Got back to finish up the blocks. 

I never got to start my Two Timer blocks.  And I missed Gudrun's Part 2 video. I'll watch it tomorrow. 

I have class tomorrow. Just what I need, another project!  LOL. I'll have to organize myself.  

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on Wednesday

It's been a busy few days and I just realized today that I hadn't had one notification from any of my groups - haven't unclicked or clicked anything but for some reason they aren't showing up.  I'll try to take a quick scan to see if I've missed anything major - if so, please fill me in.
