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.

Just hop on over Froggie! We would love to see you. I have a few of your relatives living in my garden and they have yet to learn to be QUIET at night.You can hold Luke all you like. He is calling me now!

Oh thanks Mari, I am going to try and grow a lavendar. I will have to remember the pruning tip, or you can remind me!
That's too funny, Diane! mmm, I don't think so, doc! Formula really is expensive, isn't it? Luke better love it.
Time to swim, but it's so hot outside, yesterday it was 109, I think we have been over 100 for a couple of weeks, with no cool off in sight. THat's unusual for us. I am ready to go visit Diane, maybe I can even play with Luke.

Ladies the workshop was very very good. The whole problem being that we are not as blessed as you ladies are in the USA with your many coupons and great deals with them that you get. But this mom has seemed to have mastered the Canadian coupon system such as it is. And with a new baby in the house and formula $30.00 a can I can use some help.

I forgot to share a good laugh with you all. When I took baby Luke in for his first week checkup the Doctor was going through his routine questions and quietly says 'Are you breastfeeding?' When there was no answer from this shocked person he quickly looked up and said' Oh my God of course not!'

Have to focus today and make 100 market bags. My hubby and I are going away on Tues. for a little holiday and to go to a wedding and these bags must get done , so today is it.

Mari enjoy your holiday.

Good Morning Everyone!  I was missing y'all!  I'm on vacation this week but plan on peeking in on you.  The project that will go up on Wednesday is beautiful and in my most favorite colors!!!  I can't wait for you to see it and my friend Judy made it!  She took great care to choose just the right fabrics.


Oh, Loretta, Russian Sage sounds delightful as a scent!  I will be anxious to hear how it works for you.  I think there are so many different options available ~ we just need to do the research and share!

Thanks for the tip Gayle on the pecan shells.  Good to know.

Diane ~ yes, you don't have the energy as you use to but you most certainly have the love in your heart!  And, what a wonderful workshop!  That sounds most interesting.  We all could use that info!

No I did not find anything to stuff my hearts. So the first few will just be for decorations I guess.

Gayle the baby is really good but you are right that is why I am probably a wee bit tired.

Comment by Gayle/La. on July 9, 2011 at 5:02pm
Diane would that have anything to do with having a 2-3 week old baby in the house?  I am afraid that I would not have made it as long as this.  Hope you found what you need to stuff those hearts.

I have nothing to fill mine with. I am going to a workshop this afternoon put on by Frugal Momma on how to use coupons in Canada so I will pop into a store and see if I can find something.

Weather here is cold and wet, the wind last night was terrible. My plants are still hanging and the garden looks intact but the day isn't over yet!

My daughter and her 3 little guys went home last night and after I fed Luke I fell asleep for 2 hours. Just don't have the energy I usd to.

Have a great day everyone.

Loretta, if that sage dries well and smells good, I say go for it.  I like the sound of all the different smells for the stuffings, but I would say to be careful of the oiliness of them.  I think that pecan shells would have too much oil for these hearts.
Comment by Loretta on July 8, 2011 at 6:27pm

I don't have any lavender here, it would definitely freeze here in Minnesota, but I do have some Russian Sage, I wonder if that would work similar to the Lavender?  It drys really well and the smell is fantastic.  I'll have to do some research on that.  I'll let you know.

Take care, Lou Ann...  *ouchie* (as my daughters said when they were little)


I will remember that about cutting back the lavender, Mari.  It's why the darned thing is now so big!  I'm good with roses (kinda) but am scared of the lavender!
