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.

I guess my quilt studio is a Therapy Workshop also. I go there for attitude adjustments!

Hey Linda - I'm happy to help you with your fabric smell addiction! :)

Oh, I remember the smell of the memeograph paper. My mom was a secretary at a church, and in the summer I would go to work with her and help print the sunday programs and the monthly newsletter. I haven't thought of that in years! What does hot fresh fabric smell like? I think Diane is right, both of us have been affected by the smells. I need to be affected by something right now, because I haven't been in my Therapy Studio since sometime Monday. I think. Maybe Sunday. I really need some Therapy. I have a friend at work that is going to be a Grampa any day now, and I bought some Beatles fabric months ago to make a baby quilt for his grandbaby. He is a huge Beatles fan, and I thought he would enjoy cuddling under his quilt telling his grandson about the Fab Four! I seriously have to get busy on that.
Maybe this weekend.
Happy quilting!

Linda ~ I remember the smell of the library! OMG, I loved that smell! Also, the smell of memograph paper hot off the press! In college and art classes I took a lot of classes in etching. I LOVED the smell of the ink paste! It was awesome. Now that I'm at CT again, when I come into work everyday and get off the elevator I get a whaft of the smell of fresh, hot off the bolt fabric. I LOVE that smell too! Now, I have that fabric smell in my "Therapy Studio" everytime I head upstairs! Now you know how much fabric I have up there! Hee, hee! Thanks Karen! I LOVE that term! I'm gonna use it from now on!

Therapy Studio, I like that. Remember how the library smelled? The school library always had a distinct smell. Not that I ever spent much time in there studying or researching! I think pea soup in the pressure cooker would be a huge mess if it explodes. I can't imagine, never saw one explode. I guess my Mom taught me well on that one. My brain doesn't work well early in the morning, either, but I get up early and come in anyway! Just to see what kind of trouble I can start. Today is food day here, I am eating the best chicken salad sammich on a croissant that I ever had! Sheila put lots of good stuff in there, celery, purple grapes, apple, pecan. Oh, and some chicken! I will have a bite for all of you, now that I made you hungry. And yes, we started eating lunch at 10:30AM local time.
Has anyone started on their July project?
Happy quilting!

Ok gals, now how am I to get anything done at my B&B or in my "Therapy Studio" aka sewing room if you all keep this up? I just don't want to miss out & I don't want to find out later tonight what has been going on. Now I do sound like I'm back in the 70's around the library table at school. Heaven forbid you had to go to the bathroom & miss the break around the table. I have got to go clean so don't get too carried away today! Have a fun & happy day!
