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.

Rats! I have such a big mouth, uh, finger, uh, well, I don't know how to say this. I was thinking with keys??........... Well, just know I'm working away for ya but I'm several months out now! Lots of goodies are coming your way.

Francine, am I adversity???? (CACKLE!!)

You're right Froggie. We sometimes get ours at the pet store too. It's cheap. I like the size its ground in the bird section but you can find a finer grind in the reptile section. The most course kind is at the quilt shops and I love that! It's my favorite! NO! DON'T COVER YOUR PIN CUSHIONS WITH PLASTIC SILLY!!! It will dull your pins and needles!

How funny, Carol, I remember people with the plastic. I never understood it. Isn't stain stick the best? I just love it.
Don't ya just love the crushed walnut shells? Did I tell ya that I found them at Pet Smart in the bird section for $10 for a huge bag?
I think Mari is teasing us with the walnut shells. Is the pin cushion our first project? Or will she make us wait until the end of the month? SHe is so tricky, her and Karen too. Do we have to cover our new pin cushions with plastic?

Good question Francine!
Comment by Francine/Cda on June 28, 2010 at 8:32am
and may I ask Mari ------ hummmmmmmmmmmm - why would you need those crushed walnut shells ----- einnnnnnnnnn - would that by any tiny chance be related to OUR new project ahhhh
Comment by Mari/WA on June 28, 2010 at 8:29am
I agree! I think that's why we are dealing with super bug issues now. We've lived too sterile. Now, I have to run home and get my crushed walnut shells, I forgot them there!
Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on June 28, 2010 at 8:28am
I think she was comfortable, Mari. It must have given her a sense of peace not having to worry about anything getting messed up. I can't live that way though. I take care of things but life is too short not to enjoy them.
Comment by Mari/WA on June 28, 2010 at 8:23am
Carol! I love your visual. I can see her house in my mind's eye right now. How sterile but, I bet she was very comfortable living that way.

Marguerite, you gave me a good chuckle. As I child, I had an aunt - dad's sister - who had every visible surface in her house covered in clear plastic -- plastic runners on ALL the carpet, plastic slipcovers on all the furniture - every tablecloth and doily covered. It was like living in a ziploc baggie!!! She died many years ago with all her wonderful possessions still in perfect condition. What a pity - she never got to enjoy them. It's OK about the mustard and mayo -- that's why God made Stain Stick!!!

Pepper, are you bringing the carrot salad to the bash on the 4th? I love carrot salad, but have never heard of it with a tomato soup dressing. Sounds interesting and would love to try it.

Carol, we will take good care of the table runner so we don't get any mayo or mustard or anything on it - maybe we should put clear plastic over it for protection.

Have a good quilting day everyone. Kit
