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.

I had to go put on a bib after reading Diane's post because I was drooling so much!
Froggie - I googled bear poop and believe me you don't want to know what it looks like!

Bear Poop = really big blueberries

You are silly, Carol! No thievin' on your part!
love the joke gardengirl, who is still hiding!
Anne, what is wrong with you? Feel better, we are having fun here.
Cheap thrill? woohoo! I love staples, too.
Wait a minute! You mean to tell me there are kids out there who did not score 100 on their learner's permit and driving test? I really wanted that license! And if it took studyin' to get it, well, that is what I would do for the first time ever.
Linda, when you visit, it's BYOC. Cuz we don't have Tim's. I drink Millstone. Buy the beans and grind them myself.
I was just wondering what bear poop looks like.
Anybody out there quilting? or are we all just eating again today?
~Hopppy quilting~

Oh, Diane, it all sounds so good! And pretty! You have such busy days of fun! Do you have to have an "government approved" kitchen to make your goodies to sell to the public?

WHAT! Teri, you're here again??? (snicker!)

MaryAgnes ~ you work too much! I'm glad you stop in here for a break during the day. When I'm designing patterns and I think my brain is going to burst I hop over here and it slows down the flow. Its like I get so many details about a pattern in my brain they all get discombobulated. I love the fun and banter ~ its a stress reliever.

Sorry Teri but I have just made 30 HOT CINNAMON BUNS and then 15 choc. cupcakes that I will fill with choc. pudding and top with icing and smarties. Also made 15 rainbow cupcakes that I will fill with vanilla pudding and top with icing and smarties. I then put them in individual bags and tie with a pretty ribbon. They sell so fast!
I was up at 5:30 so I could reach my sister in Ontario before she went out.
Then today I am meeting a new lady at the Quilt Store. We are taking Nancy Chong's Hawaiian Quilting course on-line at Quilt University and want to compare notes!
Anne I am so glad we heard from you. Feel better soon.

I know all about 10 hour days. I usually work 6 of them a week. Your schedule sounds much better than mine.
Comment by Teri on August 10, 2010 at 6:11am
I am at work - I usually get here around 5:00 like Mari. I work for Tina now but I get here that early so I can leave early! I work 4 10 hour days so that I can have 3 full days home with my baby! My husband stays home with him while I'm at work.

Good Grief, Charley Brown. What a group!!! And the topics of conversation!!! food, devils, children, coffee, food, quilting, driving, food, theft, scat, food, swimming, angels, and, of course, food. I tried to keep up with all of you yesterday, but had to give it up. Work ruins the day sometimes, doesn't it?

Teri: It's not 6 am where you are. Are you at work this early too? That Karen sure is a task master!!! Or are you just trying to keep up with Mari?

Have a great day everyone.

Thank you for trying to straighten us all out Carol but I fear there is no hope for us. I had to go home and eat you guys were making me too hungry - now I come back and find more food talk. gardengirl/VA I'm going to have to make a pie now! Hi ranchmom! Linda Richards I have to come visit you and take pictures of your bears - I LOVE bears. I collect them and I'd love to get some photos - well not of the bear poop but of the actual bear!!! Mari thanks for the advertising! I haven't even had coffee yet but you girls have woken me right up :)

Oh, Gardengirl, that sounds deeeeeelicious! I would love the recipe too! Oh, Anne, you're going over to Fast & Furious too???? That Teri is just too cute! She really knows how to flip words. Well, I'll let you in on a secret ~ I joined too! Actually, the "quilt as you go" method is fabulous and perfect for smaller projects like table runners. I love it because when you're done you're REALLY done. Its all quilted! As you add each piece you are quilting at the same time. Seriously, I would recommend everyone to learn that method if you haven't. It will save you a great deal of time and money. Besides, Teri is entertaining at the same time.
