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.

Thel, I like Bibs Red Mill. I get their 7 grain cereal to make my bread. Need to get more.

Kim, I need the pattern, not quilt kit. Found pattern I want on Amazon.

I had no clue you had to register this year's golden star tickets.

Been lazy all day. Didn't do a thing!

The Prime Pantry stuff is a variety of things; paper towels, tissues, dog food, cat food, the spice rack needed a few replacements, got me some dried beans (all this beans from scratch talk makes me wanna get back to doing that).  I hope Mary Alice approves of my selection; Bob's Red Mill brand name - red lentils - green split peas - pinto beans.  Got brown sugar, coffee, dawn, some other things too.  Many of the items last for a long time,  so next month it'll be something different to resupply. 

Oh my goodness,  a walk in pantry Kim !  Can I babysit the Florida house for you.  

Oh I like that way to describe what we all have to do all the time; general upkeep.   I do a lot of that here it seems and you wouldn't always know it.  Geeze!!    Yup,  there's enough STUFF to do here too.  

Back to it.  While the rest of the household finds different places and ways to sleep.

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday!

Froggie, you have a beautiful Mama. Happy Birthday to her!

Mary Agnes, Ava is darling. Babies are such a gift.

Working on my Christmas ornaments and I think I'll get back to my bow tie quilt today. It's a busy day with a fella coming this AM to see what he can do about fixing my leaky upstairs window, grocery shopping, laundry, and general upkeep. I should be thankful there's enough STUFF to keep me going on my feet for quite a while! The body needs the movement!

Here's to all of you having a great day!!!

Ah, Ava Nicole is so cute in her Minnie Mouse attire.

More groceries Thel. You are going to be eating well for quite awhile. I like to stock up this time of year. Just in case of a storm or something happens that I can't get out I know we really have everything we need to make due for quite some time. Plus you can do so much with a well stocked pantry.

Oh yes, I forgot. In the new house in Florida I will have a walk in pantry. I am very excited about that. I know. I guess that means it doesn't take much to make me happy if a pantry does it.

Comment by Kim Webb yesterday

Oh no, I hope I'm not in trouble with Mr. B. That would not be good. I was referring to Froggie's other turkey, the one with the funky eyes.

Mary Alice, I was always told that when it comes to fabrics or kits that if you really like something and want it, to get it when you see it. Once they are gone, they are gone. Or you snooze, you lose.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Oh goodness.................look at beautiful Ava Nicole.  Maybe she and Kegan James should meet up.............now wouldn't that be fun.  

Thank you so very much Rita for the congratulations.  It's wonderful to hear that DS3 is improving.  Accountability definitely helps.  I realized I didn't "need" that much sleep.  I just didn't have a real reason to get out of my nest.  Now I make reasons by doing what I should have been doing all along.  Continued prayers for your DS.  

I'm so happy BJ is happy with his/her new daddy and that your son is happy too.   Having a living being to be responsible for definitely helps with purpose.  

Lunch is done, time to put more stuff away.  

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

Hi Ava Nicole, you are beautiful!!!

I understand your enjoyment of being alone for a while Froggie, just enjoy it and don't feel guilty, everyone needs some alone time. You have been care taker for a long time.

More congrats coming your way, Thel,  never tired of saying it, each day is a thing to celebrate. I can see all the production you tell us about, and earlier starts too. YAY!!!!  My DS3 has issues with sleeping and tiredness, he has PTSD, his councilor has him now doing a chart, and he has said just that accountability has made a big difference in his productivity, and schedule, not sleeping as much. by the way, he is in love with his new rescue kitty, I need to call and have him email me a picture of BJ, I forgot that.

If I am going to get stuff done I better get like Froggie and get hopping, DH gone all morning, and I have been sssslllooowwww, hot tub, and TV catchup, now I have to hurry, just like when I was a kid, screw off then hustle. (bad girl)

I will be back later after I accomplish something.

Oh yah,  don't forget to register them. 

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday
Mary A lice did you register that golden star $1? If it is from this year, I'd contact MSQC and tell them your problem.
