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.

Hi Barbara .  Nice one.  Did it all and then some...Good for you.  I'm still working on finishing mine... They are pretty nice, and easy enough to put together.  Thanks for posting.  Anne

Oh Pepper, that's no good, feel better soon.

OK, I get it now, Mari, thanks. I can change my pixels.

Thanks for the compliments on my distorted candle mat, I really  like yours, too, Barbara. The yoyo's turned out great.

I've been working on DD's quilt, I think I have spent so much time on small projects, that the big project is bumming me out. I might have to stop and do a small project or two to keeep motivated.

Here's my candle mat. I decided to go with yoyos as I hadn't worked with those before.

Thank you everybody for your concern and I do feel better now.Not past the saltines and gingerale yet but better.I think it was a 36 or so hour bug.

  Thanks Mari but I am not ready for soup yet.

You are all so busy sewing I wish I could do that but I always feel guilty when there are so many other things in the house to do.And there are so many projects I want to do I can't seem to pick one and get going.

OK, the "bug" has reached Tennessee.  It started yesterday afternoon.  Thought I was OK this morning, but am still not back to normal.  I neeeeed soup.  Well, my DD1 didn't go to work today due to the weather, I wonder...  No, I am sure she can't make homemade soup.  She just doesn't have the knack.  Oh well, I am sure I have a can in the pantry and I do have ginger ale. 

Froggie, I do like your candle mat.  I ought to make a couple for gifts, but I think I will wait until I am not running to the bathroom every 5 minutes.

Pepper ~ GET BETTER!  Hey, I can make soup for you?!  Anne's right, take one teaspoon of Ginger Ale at a time.  Poor tummy!  8-{

Jennifer ~ What a deal.  Well, now we all know what we need to do when interviewing.....  interview as if you don't need the job!

Froggie:  The distortion in your photos is controlled by pixels.  So, when you upload a pick with the second icon above, "image", make the number smaller.  The dialog box offers 750 pixels and my pic was loaded vertically and stretched out.  I changed the pixel number to 500 and this is what I got below and it looks fine!

Glad you could join me Anne, I always love good company, I have been doing fine, sound like you had a good visit yesterday with your BF.

Think I'll grab another cuppa, and join Ranchmom in the Henhouse...Want to Sew, Sew, Sew.  Nice Room,  Ranchmom, how are you?  BBL  Anne

Oh Pepper, please take care of yourself and start to feel better soon.  Ds#4 stayed home from school to day with a sore throat and fever.  So much flu going around right now.


Froggie I like your candle mat. 


Hope everyone has a good day, I am going into the Hen House with a cuppa coffee and do some sewing.
