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.

Mari looking forward to a new line of fabric! That means waiting anxiously for my CT order to arrive, YIPPEE!! My daughter had a Honda for her first car. It was old when she bought it for $150. I remember the roof leaked and everytime it rained she would leave the house with a towen wrapped around her head like a turban. She drove that car for another 4 years and sold it for $100. What a great car that was. Good luck with yours Linda. But a fews years from now, if you have to wear a turban, at least make it a quilted one!

Yes Yes Yes!!!!I am so excited. Another quilt along. And YESSSS you are keeping Gifty Galore alive. You are the BEST.
We look like a Norman Rockwell painting today. Another 6" of snow and it is still falling. Tried to go get blood work done but had to turn around the roads are so bad. I might try quilting a little today.You Ladies are making me real antsy to get at that material I have.
Please keep posting pictures and writing what you are doing as I love hearing it all.
Angus was out playing as the guy next door is shovelling and he has come in pure white!My hubby is chasing him around the house trying to dry him off with a towel.

Yes, a F150 is a VERY big truck, especially for a person of 5 ft! People just laugh when they see me get in and out of the truck. They expect some burly fella to be using it. Its a long story why i got it. Yes, I'm much more suited to a little buzz car, hence, purchasing a Honda FIT. I may not get it tomorrow but will within the next week. I'm not a negotiator of that sort. Perhaps its better said I'm not a game player. I prefer hearing the bottom price, deciding if I want to pay it and saying yay or nay. I'm not up to sitting in someones office for 3 hours trying to negotiate down a price $20. I'll probably end up with a car broker in the end. I'd rather spend an additional $300 than put myself through that. Its Christmas, who has the time!!!???

On a happier note, I'll be starting a new Quilt Along in a couple of weeks. It'll be featuring a new line of fabric and 4 quilt kits. The kits will be a tote, square table topper, appliqued table runner and a large wall hanging or table topper. I thought it would be fun to have a kind of "school" environment so it'll have short lessons with each kit so we can make it together a little at a time. We'll still keep Gifty going but will only bring projects to it for special occasions. That way I can handle both. I researched our upcoming 2010 holidays from Jan to Jun and there are at least one a month so we'll make that our goal starting in Jan. So, January we'll consider Valentine's projects, February-St. Patrick's, March-Easter, April-Mother's Day, May-Father's Day.... Although, please, please make suggestions too!!! What do you think???

Oh Linda please don't ever change - and thank you for the smile you took from me after reading your story - and a big big congrats to your DD - you have a good DD - but I think she had a very good MOM behind her -
Mari I had a honda back in ...... ouf 1974 my first car - it was a HONDAMATIC - it was half manual and half automatic - the first ones that were imported - and sold it in 1977 and I think the guy had it for...... lets say a very long time - the only thing is that here the prices of the parts are expensive - but ok they last for a long time - but when you have to change it,,,,,, - but maybe not for you on the west coast....

Oh yeah, Nanny Gayle, I understand about no guy gifts. When I tell DH that he has to buy for our brother in law, he gives me that look like I told him to walk about 500 miles, uphill both ways, to get it. What is it about men? ugh.
Kit, My MIL would say that the car knew when you had an extra dollar in your pocket, and it would break down. Sometimes even when you don't have an extra dollar.
Anne, you are on a roll. We had a honda, Prelude. Bought it when DD was 5. She swore she would drive it. We said, yeah right. We almost traded it in when she was about 10, and she cried and cried. For some other reason, we did not trade it in. She took it to college and drove it for four years. AND no kidding, about 2 months after she graduated, her sister(yes, my other daughter) killed it. Dead dead. It wouldn't go.
Mari, isn't that ford 150 a huge truck? I would think you would drive a cute little car. Cute Mari in a cute car.
I am putting those mysteries on my Christmas list. I am rather late, but I haven't bought much either. Balls of polyfil for everyone! I mean nice little puff balls of fun! Entertainment for hours and hours! Somebody should package that stuff, it's so much fun.
Oh yeah, and Francine, I can't wait to see your oil painting! My Dad used to paint with oils, got pretty good at it. Mostly mountains and trees and things like that. No people or animals. MMMM the smell of the paint!
I better run, I have to get stuff ready for tomorrow, and to stretch. Didn't I just do all that yesterday? I think I am in a rut.
Oh yeah, DD1 has passed another board exam. She's a pharmacist, and just took an exam that gives her BCPS behind her name. It's Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist. WOOHOO, I think that means she knows lots of info about the good drugs. I didn't say that. Good info about prescription meds. Oh who knows, more letters behind her name, and she can make piles and piles of money to keep her Mom happy with piles and piles of fabric! WOOHOO for Gina!
Hoppy quilting!

Thanks Anne! I'm very excited!

Good Luck, Mari. We got a new 2009, Accord in April. Love it. Anne

Anne ~ I'll do that on Saturday. Let you know how it went. I'm excited to be in a small car again that gets reasonable gas milege.
Comment by Anne on December 3, 2009 at 10:44am
Thanks Mari for the compliment. Yeah..Just go out and try one. drive it for a little while. They drive by themselves. Hi. Collette. Yes, two of them are out right now. By, Clare O'Donohue - A someday quilts mystery. the titles are: "The Lover's Knot" and just out, 2009 " A Drunkard's Path" . Great read. Ask, for them for a Christmas Gift. Got to go back to making my cakes and pie crusts. Back later. Anne

Anne ~ Thanks for the car info. Believe it or not I had planned on purchasing a Honda Fit. I had a Honda once before and loved it. I'm tired of driving my Ford F150; a total gas guzzler. Glad to see that bill go!!!
Anne, you are such a busy lady! I bet you're a great cook and the family just loves you to death!!!
