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. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

I was a machine, Thel! We brought lunch too, so I just grazed while I sewed. Do those cookies have nuts? I love cookies with nuts. Maybe because I am a nut. 

We have extra snow days, Kim. Your district can borrow them. 

I have to make a list and go you-know-where-today. Good grief. It's been a while, but I just don't want to go. We are critical on some items like coffee. I guess I better get me a list going so I can get outta here.

Good morning,

Up early this morning and I already went out to check a few things and to go to the beach. Not to bad yet here. Sleet is starting to change over to snow. They are saying maybe a foot of snow now. Schools are opened this morning. If they get a half day in then they don't have to make it up. They have already used up all the snow days plus two more that they need to make up.

Laundry is happening and hopefully some sewing.

Glad you didn't have any visitors last night Mary Alice.  Hopefully not again soon at least.  

Yahoo on sit and sew Froggie.  You sure do get a lot accomplished there.  

I couldn't resist the springs............

All is well here, I just haven't felt chatty today.  I did get a few more buttons sewn onto Button Patch.  I got some housework done, cooked some chocolate chip cookies, did a little house cleaning............that's about it.  

Time to hit the sack.

Beautiful crocuses, Cora. Thanks for the Spring feeling. I think I have some hyacinth trying to come up, but it's still so cold here! Mid 30s during the day.

You crack me up, Thel! :)

Good for you, Mary Alice! I think you needed it. I hope he has moved on. I kept wondering if that National Quilter's Circle was worth it. I tried to join once, and it kept messing up. Thanks for taking one for the team, I won't spend my money on that. I crack me up. 

That crocus patch is gorgeous, Cora! Mom used to have a crocus, but after she passed away, it quit growing. I think the mowing killed it. 

What a gorgeous and colorful Spring, Thel! THanks for sharing. I crack me up. 

Who scheduled Bible Study and QOV at the same time? That is just not right, Barbara. Everyone should know that. I bet lunch was good. 

I got a lot done at sit and sew. I got one Project Linus quilt quilted, and a second just over half finished. Now to find some binding. Or make some. There were lots of people there today, we have several new ladies all of a sudden. It's nice to have new people.

That Kegan sure is growing up fast. He'll be in preschool (or is that prep school) befroe we know it.

Gosh Kim, I sure wish I could send you some of our nice spring weather. That's too many bad storms in a row. Be safe and take care of the girls.

Just Bible Study as QOV meets at the same time. Then lunch with the gals and some grocery shopping. I put a venison roast in the oven for dinner.

Your welcome, Mary Alice. I really enjoy her books. Glad the snorer didn't show last night. I think we all need to put in wind generators with all the winds we've been having. Hope the rest of the instructions are right on that QA.

Oh Cora, those are gloriuos crocus. Thanks for sharing.

Thel you are funny. ☺☺☺

I don't have any pretty flowers to share.  Here's Spring !! 

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Oh new fabric collections!  I might be going shopping tonight!

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Cora, gorgeous Crocus's!  I agree with Marilyn, they look totally Easter like!  

We'll I'm done for the day.  I didn't get everything done that needs to be done, but at least I got some things done.  Now it's break time and time to re-work that last block. It's the only one I need to put this whole thing together.

Comment by Marilyn L. yesterday

Hi There Cora!  Thank you for the beautiful picture of the crocus's. I don't think any of the old ones are coming up this year in my yard. They sure look like Easter, don't they!
