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.

I forgot to add that 15 year old Grandpa went into the sevcice (the Army ) during the Gulf war. He is still in , and gave more grands. I have more kids that call me "Maw-maw " and Nanny .I just can't count them all. Some in the family by birth and the others by adoption, they adopted us . Just one big happy family it gets hectic around the holidays, we get as much as we give and more. Hope all your ups and downs are in stitches. Deb

Mary Agnes, I thank God for people like you. It was people like you in Miss. that removed my niece and nephew from the situation that they were in. My Mom and I took them in and raised them. They turned out to be the best kids, because they were thankful. They just fit in to the 3 sons that I had. They stayed with me most of the time cause Mom worked as a Deputy Sheriff (tough old girl).They were babies when we got them. I had one son borned in 1973, one in1976, nephew in 1977, niece in 1978 (dec.) and my baby boy in March of 1979. # on the bottle and in diapers. Whew we had our hands full. Then I took in a homeless 15 year old boy. He turned out to be the grandpa making sure everyone was in by 10 p.m. Thank you again for all you do. well I have to go I have some embroidery in the machine that's calling to have it's thread changed. might get some quilting done. May all your ups and downs be in stitches. God Bless Deb

OMG, how removed I am from the reality of those situations ~ and at Christmas time too........ how disappointing. Well, at least you know what you need and how to get it in a health way; not at the expense of those little ones. Yes, I am a Mother Hen. Weight Watchers calls this time of the year (Oct-NY's) the Bermuda Triangle. I suppose that would apply here but for different reasons, eh?

Yes, Mother. I've started blocking one day a week off in next year's calendar. It's too late for this year. November and December have always been hectic. It suddenly dawns on people that they want to see their kids over the holidays and so they fight about it and one of them files a petition in Court and the judges want to add yet another case to already overbooked days. Or family members fight and want to throw each other out of the house; or kids get hurt deliberately or not; or stuff gets the old five finger discount; or . . . you get the picture. But I do appreciate the advice. Thanks.

Mary Agnes, I think you should start that resolution NOW! Have a good day!
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on November 5, 2010 at 6:06am
Good going, everyone. Abby is up to #9. Let's vote her up to #8 today.

TGIF and I never meant it more than today. Still drizzling here in the Big Apple and weather is cool which will be a benefit for the marathoners on Sunday (don't even ask; the answer is no, never, wouldn't even think of running).
I'm going to vote for Abby and then off to the salt mines, yet again. I've already decided on one New Year's resolution for next year (for which I have to start planning now). I am not going to schedule more than four days a week in Court. It doesn't mean I won't continue working 6 days a week but maybe I'll get control of my life and back to stitching. You all keep me inspired, btw.
