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!

Mornin' All. Nice cold windy grey day here. Guess we need these too, huh? Helps me appreciate the beautiful warm sunny days more. Still no sign of daffydils or tulips around here.

Got one of my quilts binding done-Yeah! It's one I did with my Mom's stash and am giving to my sis for her BD.

Am watching the crafty & quilt shows on my PBS channel. So many fantastic ideas and projects.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Mornin' Everyone.  I spied a few little green shoots poking their way through the winter debris this morning so maybe spring will arrive.  I love seeing masses of forsythia in bloom along the highway.  My mother always called forsythia the flower of Brooklyn, but I may have told you that last spring. 

I love pink, but have often wondered whatever possessed the first designer who put it in a bathroom.  And then, why ever would someone copy it?

My house had a master bath in all pink,an ugly shade of pink.Everything in it was pink,tile on walls,sink and comode and shower and the upper half was wallpaper in a very dark green with pink flowers.I have never liked pink of any sort so when I had it done over it is a nice blue with white fixtures,blue gray floor and gray in the shower.The main bath had everything in yellow with a dark wallpaper on the upper half.It is now a sage green with off white fixtures and a floor I call pond scum.I told my boys since they don't clean things up much that the floor fit them.

I show people a picture of what it looked like, and they can't believe the difference. The master had the same wallpaper, but in shades of blue. It wasn't nearly as obnoxious, so we let it stay for a year before tackling it.

Lou Ann, I would have done the exact same thing.....  oh, goodness!

When we looked at our home 17 years ago, my late DH could hardly get past some of the colors, even though we knew we would replace carpets and do some other things. Our main bath had hot pink and pink flowers that were about a foot in circumference, and to top it all off, they had a matching hot pink shower curtain. After we closed, we drove over and removed the shower curtain so we wouldn't have to look at it after the carpet was in. The paper was removed soon after we moved and it is now liveable.

Lynne, you make me laugh ~ ugh!  Bubble gum pink and pepto bismal pink???  Good choices on your part!!!
Comment by Lynne Wurzer on March 4, 2011 at 11:14am

Green stuff is good.  My daylilies and irises are showing their green right now, but I am thinking that my gardenia might not have survived the cold spell this winter.  I will have to wait and see.

Froggie- brown and pink and lilac are grogeous together and a triple Irish chain will really set it off.

Mari - when we first built this house, my DD picked out the colors for her bedroom and bath.  The bedroom was bubblegum pink and the bath was Pepto Bismol pink.  Two years later when she lived on campus for a year I immediately painted it a soothing blue color and the bathroom is now a tan.  Much easier on the eyes!

Pepper - Yes having DGDs is so much fun.  We have tea parties everytime she comes, which is quite often since she lives only 3 blocks away.  She has the twins and the bitty baby, too.  When I asked what she wanted for her birthday, she told me that it was just so difficult to bundle the twins up to take them places.  She said that what she needed was a twin stroller to make it easier.  So I found one and bought it.  Now to finish the clothes.

And, yes, Froggie, I will post a picture when I get them finished.  She will be 6 on Tuesday, but we are not celebrating until next weekend so her brother can be there as well as her father who is a truck driver.

Froggie, love that green stuff ~ I'm itching to get new green stuff in my yard......soon!  Well, I had an orange (feeling the CA sun or, at least dreaming about it).  I think a triple irish chain will be perfect ~ hummmm, pink, lilac and brown huh?  I think that might be awsomely beautiful.  I have a pink and white quilt to do for my DGD who is a pink-ahololic right now.  I have a bedroom in my house that is HOT pink and as soon as she comes in the front door she goes straight to that room to see if I've changed the color.  She loves it and doesn't want it changed (cackle!!!)  Oh, if only to be that focused!
