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.

What a sweet DH he is,huh? My sister is a librarian in Ms. but I don't get to see her often enough to get my books from her so I pester the girls here in our parish library.

Anne, be careful. Your husband might tell you that you have to get rid of 3 yards of fabric for every yard that you bring in the house if he has to get rid of 2 bags of books for every bag he brings home.

Hi. I just stopped in to see what was going on. I love it here..when I need a lift or a chuckle...You are all the greatest. Linda, The only room in our home that doesn't have books in it - is the bathroom. DH said he could fix that, too. I put shelves in my sewing room for fabric..DH brings home quilting books for me, and you know where they end up...because I too, love the quilting books and mags. Saturday mornings, DH likes to go to library sales, and yard sales...looking for books...He might just miss one that he doesn't have. I've told him, for every bag of books that he brings in, he will have to take out 2 bags from his collection. But, does he listen to me. Nooooo. It's okay..his world too. Nanny Gayle..Yes, the next book, which I think I will open up tonight, is by Clare O'Donohue. "A drunkard's Path" featuring Nell Fitgerald. You must have guessed by now...who got them for me. Anne

Well, I love kits in that when I am ready to sew something I hate to have to spend all that time choosing fabrics. I love CT kits because you always get a pattern with it, not like the E. B.'s QIAD kits where you have to purchase the pattern or book seperately. I already have the book for "Bundle Up" but I sure wish it was a kit so I would have the fabrics all picked out.
Anne, is that next one by the same author? I will get my friend at the library to order it for me.I get a lot of interlibrary loans thru her. I don't have to pay for the books either.

Anne, We have to get our DH's together! Mine reads hardback books and keeps them. He has made a room into a library and 2 walls are covered with bookcases full of books he has read. Plus he has books in his office that need a bookcase. He has some books that are leather with gilded edges on the pages, and he loaned his Lincoln book to DGS1. WOW. Those books are almost under lock and key. But DGS1 knows how to take care of things, so he has it on the closet shelf so it doesn't get chewed on by dogs or some other catastrophe!
I am going to put some of those quilter's books on my Christmas list. I like the idea of Mini Kits, yeah, great idea, we should be the guinnea pigs for trying out the kits! Then we can find mistakes in the directions. Like Mari makes mistakes like that!
I finally finished a friendship quilt, check out my page. Plus there's a pic of the whole disfunctional family, and a pic of my grandson's cross stitch Christmas ornaments. They each get an ornament every year.
I gotta go find some food,I am hungry. I wish there was some turkey in the fridge!
Hoppy quilting!

Love you ladies. I had a fabulous first night home.
Might try to do some hand sewing today. I am anxious to start some of the gifts you ladies have made.Maybe today I can start choosing fabric. I don't know about you but that can take me half a day sometimes.
We are covered in snow. It truly looks like a Winter Wonderland.

Nanny Gale, ask Mari again....I would love to see some of these idea projects made into Packets...even the smaller ones...enough supplies to make a couple of them. The Kits would even be great to give away as gifts to a friend or family member, that like to quilt or sew. After this group tries the project out, and you get enough "Oh's and Ah's" out of us, set up a neat little kit, and put it on sale. Call them "Mini Kits".Oh, that's enough from Anne...Maybe, I should go into my sewing room, and stay out of trouble...or maybe, get into trouble. Have a great day everyone. Will be checking up on all of you...Stay well. Anne

WOW! is all I can say about the end of the story. "The Lover's Knot" I enjoyed it very much. Now I will go right into the next one...."A Drunkard's Path". Hi Francine, You are so right...That is a good recipe for an ice pack. The alcohol, doesn't freeze into a solid block, It's like a bag of SLUSH. and it can form around the area that you want to apply it to. When you're finished with it...just put it back into the freezer, until you need it again. My son used it on his leg and hip after his accident. He still has a steel rod in his hip and upper leg..after 20 years. Diane it's a slow process, but, hang in there...we're thinking about you. Anne

Hi everyone - 1st - oh my gosh Diane - ouch - no wonder you were in pain - same happened with my friend's son - but it was the spine - they had put a metal piece and it moved before he left the hospital ended up going back to fix it but after much pain..... are you going to be a bionic woman with all that replacement ... take care -
MaryAgnes - my MIL used to write all those small and ''big'' words of kids and reread them when they were older... - I would not have be able to continue myself.... - they say something in french that goes... that the truth always comes from the kids ... or they speak the truth I should maybe translate..... OK not always true but for something like that yes.....
OK still waiting for Mari to give me the OK to post a pattern a make with a cushion -
might not be here as often as I want... my sitter told me Thursday night that she was not coming back.... so have to find another one - cause have to work and .... well of course quilt....
see you girls - ah almost forgot - will post it on the main page too - a recipe in case you need it - not a kind I wish you to need but - it is good
1 cup of rubbing alcohol and 3 cups of water that you put in a zip lock bag and then into another one ( for safety) and you freeze that it makes like a slush that you can use when you need ice on a injury - a bottle usually makes two bags so you can wrap it around - it has been very good with my sons sport's injury so far ....

take care everyone
