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.

Oh yeah, how fun, Mari! Be sure you torture Darlene about her row that you finish! I know you will!
Oh wowee, how fun, MaryAgnes! I can’t believe there downright unfriendly quilters out there. What is wrong with them there people? They must not be sniffin’ enough fabric.
That’s just gorgeous, Sandy! Wouldn’t it be great to see in person? Makes ya want to run out and buy red and white fabrics. We get sunsets like that too, Sandy, I love it! I love the cottony look of the clouds, and the dark gray, and nice blue, and yellow even! And the water, and the tree… It’s gorgeous!
Sewing computer, lol! I guess it really is, though. My new sewing computer came with a mouse and 3 plugs that have nothing to do with electricity! Yikes! And, apparently, after spending mucho money on it, I am expected to hop right in and spend mucho money on software! I am still googling on that one.
Mari, watch out for that snow! Yeah for Stephanie. Yeah, PNW doesn’t have hardly any snow removal equipment, like us, so you are kinda on your own.
Oh Sheila, I am sending big quilty hugs to you and your family! She will be fine. You know, we want pink baby pics as soon as you can snap one.
Where’s my Kodak Instamatic 126 with the square flash bulb that rotates for a new bulb?

Sheilia, you have my prayers for all.  Don't expect it to happen immediately, as babies tend to take their own time!! How about starting a simple quilt that someday you can explain to the baby that it was made while he/she was being born? Make it easy - just something to occupy your time. How about one to put on the floor for tummy time?

Mornin' Mari.  and Everyone Else.  3 whole inches?  amazing!  Here that'd be slush before rush hour was half over.  We're getting Pacific NW weather tonight.  They say to expect 1 1/2 inches of rain before it stops.

SandyB:  Thanks for the picture explanation.  Helps to know someone else accomplishes things (or not) like I do.  Must learn to use my camera one of these days.  I long for the days of the Instamatic.

Good Morn'in All!


Well, it will be a small crew today as we have about 3" of snow on the ground.  I'd put up a pic but its still dark out.  As soon as we have light I'll put one up.  Not a lot of snow but for those of us not use to it, it might as well be 8 feet of snow.  No one knows how to drive in this!  Coming in VERY early is a VERY safe thing to do!  Our customer service people are so brave!  They were in here by 4 am (Stephanie) to answer calls!!!

Great pics Sandy and Elizabeth.  You are really doing a good job with the photography.  I do that point and shoot and hope that I got the item I was aiming for in the pics. 
Comment by Sandy B /AUS on February 23, 2011 at 4:26pm

Congratulations Ranchmom.

My camera is a point and shoot one - it is a Canon Digital IXUS 60 and it does take good shots. It was a very strange, hot evening with a low pressure system from central Australia essentially bringing warm winds which hit the moisture along the coast, causing the amazing clouds and sunset did the rest.

I copied the page from TQS website which downloaded a folder and it was in the folder. Heaven knows what I do - sometime it works, othertimes not.

Thank you, MaryAgnes and Lou Ann,

You really know a lot about alpacas, Lou Ann.  Here is one more photo.  I was asked to step aside because a man on our tour wanted to get some photos too.  These animals don't stay still, you know.

Comment by Lou Ann Brach/MD on February 23, 2011 at 1:11pm
Elizabeth, glad I could help! And they both come from the same region, but llamas are pack and meat animals and the alpaca are smaller and raised for their coats. Laura loves her alpaca herd, has them all named and calls the other ones aunties when a mom gives birth. They all accept the babies and she lets mom and baby join the herd after spending a week in the barn stall making sure all is fine.
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on February 23, 2011 at 12:38pm
Elizabeth:  You could check Wikipedia.  They may have pix of both llamas and alpacas.  And maybe only one comes from Chile.

Sandy B., your sunset was awesome.  You must have a camera with different lens.  My photos are all point 'n shoot.

Lou Ann, I think my friend is an alpaca.  Llamas look a little different.  Mine looks like the alpacas in your group photo.
