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!

Hi all - just finished some funny Christmas potholders for a friend's mom who likes that sort of thing. I think she'll get a kick out of them!

Hi - don't worry Linda I knew you were joking - I too have to share something that happened a couple of years ago....
My friend had her DGS over for the week end - and her DD had put the kids gift at her mother's house so the kids wouldn't find them ....
yup you got it,,,,
so my friend went grocery shopping and other stuff leaving the kids alone.... they were old enough like 14 and 15.... or so
anyway she was away for a good while and the kids knew that she would be - so they fond the gifts.... unwrapped them.... played with them because it was one of those Nintendo 360 or something like that - wrapped them back and nobody found out .... until...
the summer when of the kid lost it .....
but it seems that had done a good job wrapping them back ....
if it doesn't last too long before I find somebody - it gives me a break... I was behind in my accounting - we own a store - and I still do m accounting the old way - lost all my stuff a few yeas ago and had to start all over my fiscal ¸year.... so no more for me ( yes I had done a back up but it wouldn't work) ....so I get to catch up on that and.....
naturally some hand quilting....
to bad I can't paint ( that is my second dada- oil painting) but it is ok for now....
girls keep on quilting - and behave yourselves with Christmas gifts..

Francine, Oh man, that's too bad, I am sorry really. I was jokin, ya know. Hopefully you can find someone else to help out. You wanting to touch your Flynn Frame makes me need to tell you what DD2 said to me tonight. Our internet died, so the grandsons were over, and I had them looking through the ads from the newspaper for Christmas ideas. Poor, poor, spoiled internet loving boys. So, DD2 called, and I told her the boys were looking for Christmas gifts the old fashioned way. She said 'They are looking in the closet? That's the way Gina and I did it!' Oh man, she is in trouble again. They always found their presents, unwrapped them, wrapped them back up. She's a mess. Who raised her, anyway? ME????
That's a good idea, Nanny Gayle, using the pre-quilted fabric. Now DD1 and DD2, and both grandsons want a pillow! And I need one for at work. We are calling the pillow 'Fred' after our dog that always sat right next to you.
Carol, That deli tote is Perfect! I love it. Chocolate, oh you should put some chocolate in it for her.
Mari, I hate cars. They are so much trouble. But of course, I have a NanaMobile, just because my bicycle doesn't fit me and my grandsons! HA. Don't believe that. I really hate cars. Ugh. No community pillows for me either. Gross gross. I told DD2 about your train ride, she said 'yuck' too.
Now I have to decide, DGS1 helped me pick out fabrics for pillows for the whole lot, now I have to figure out if I am going to use them or get some of the pre-quilted fabric. Decisions, decisions.
Time to go make coffee for tomorrow, do my stretches, find 'Fred', and go to bed.
Hoppy quilting!

Linda ~ no community pillows for me I can tell ya! Gross! They should be washed after even one person uses it! Well, that will stop when someone decides to take advantage of that situation!

Wow, you're all just so inspiring! Oh, Francine, I hope you get your sitter replaced soon so you can get done what you need to! Hey, I have a brother that was so good at unwrapping gifts and re-wrapping them that Mom never knew and he knew what everyone else got as well! There were seven of us! I wanted to know what i got but when I did I was always dissappointed on Christmas. Nanny, that's a perfect idea to buy the pre-quilted fabric! It sure would save time! Carol, your Desk Deli tote is beautiful! What a lucky friend! I wish I could sew all day today! Hey, I have to replace my car ~ anyone out there just LOVE their car? I'm looking for ideas and know nothing about cars.

Thanks Carol, I am going to give it a try, will post when done

Paula, once you have the fabric for the desk deli tote cut and the fusible fleece ironed on, it goes together pretty quickly. The pattern is available on Connecting Threads and it is a really good pattern - the directions are very clear with diagrams so I never got "lost" at all. You should give it a try. They really are cute.

The deli tote is adorable, I was thinking of making one of these for a friend. Was it an easy project? I am running outof time, and I want to add one more gift for my bff.

One more Desk Deli tote for a chocolate loving friend......I think the last one I need for Christmas gifts.
