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.

Debra, it wasn't a book.  It is a ruler with a little 2 pg leaflet showing how to use the ruler.  I think you can purchase it at the website I posted below.  We don't carry it.

oh Anne almost forgot - my DS is in Boston today - at BU for that football clinic - left at 6h30 this morning in time to catch the 1 oclock one - did not send him your way because there 6 of them - not sure you wanted all those guys showing up at your door.... - maybe some of them - but no NC in there.......

wow thanks everyone for your nice words - right now it is just red no leaking - it follows the nerve from the shoulder to in the back of my ear...- the bone in the back hurts a bit - and since the last few days my left eye bothers a bit - but I was sure I had pinch a nerve in my neck in the first place - so I did not consult just for that.... - mistake - I had shingles when I was 22 years old on my back at the waist line and it was leaking - but got no scar - hope this one doesn't reach my face and stays in the back -

and Yes thank you Anne he did give me Lyrica - I have to start slow and then I go up to 75mg ... -last time I had no meds ( oups that was 30 years ago) lol - but hopefully these will work - leaving next saturday - and thank God for the GPS I think I will just sleep while my DH drives -


anyway again thank you and yes I do accept all the hugs ( virtual ones don't hurt)

 O.K.Mari where did you get that book?  I looked in my new CT catalog and didn't see it . Also I put in a order at CT. Can't wait for it to come in. BBL

I read them all. Growin up in the country six miles from town and with no one to play with but 2 brothers, I would read all the time. I to spent my allowance on books. I went to the fabric store this morning, had begun DTS. LOl I picked up my last block of the month and yes I broke my resolution not to get more material. There were some scraps that I just couldn't live without. Weak I know. I had to have them  to do a chicken block. I live in a 100 year old farm house and my kitcken is done in the farm house look (actually early garage sale ) . LOL I have a chalkboard that says "Welcome to the funny farm" hanging over my stove. I NEEDED THAT FABRIC. LOL

Hi Kit.  Yes, Lousia May Alcott...one of my childhood, favorites.  I too, as a youngster, would love to go sit in the neighbor Library...Read a little, and take home a couple...Books, line the walls of our home...DH is a book collector...like Froggies, DH.

Oh, My Dear Friend - Francine...Shingles....are horrible.  Itch, painful...I asked the doctor about "Lyrica"??  I think you would need a script.  But, for me, It was a miricle drug.  Don't let anyone touch you...it hurts.  When we think we have troubles...Someone else is having more...Please, take it slow and easy...I know easy to say...hard to do.  Your Pal, No hugs today, don't want to hurt you...just sending a kiss your way...Anne

I, too, had shingles on my face near my eyes.  I went to the doctor, but my doctor was not in so I had to see the PA and he misdiagnosed it.  He did give me an antibiotic for a sinus infection.  I did have those symptoms, but it wasn't what was wrong.  When I went back to my doctor a few weeks later, he asked me about the fresh scar on my face.  He immediately knew what it was, but by that time it had run its course.  He did talk to the PA about his error.  So take care.

I was a ND fan, too.  I loved Louisa May Alcott's books, Anne of Green Gables, and got into historical novels.  Loved to read.

Anne, I am glad that you are getting the house taken care of.  It is so much easier when the professionals take over.  My remodeling is still not finished, but my sewing room is all finished except for the painting of the laundry room doors.  We are waiting for drier and warmer weather so we can paint them outside.  A secret passage, how romantic.

I have yet to do a scrappy quilt - other than the memory quilt after my hubby died, and even it was somewhat structured although I was using his shirts. Those shirts each gave me about a 6 X 6 piece, except for the oxford one which was all used up.

Good for you Lou Ann!  Put it in a special place because if you have to make flying geese its invaluable.  However, if your flying geese are scrappy you can't use that method :-(
