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.

Francine ~ Judy just got back from vacation so I'm going to answer your question for now. Judy got her cozy mug wrap from the Cider Mill Road book. Now, the I Believe Book also has mug cozies as well.

Judy is the cozy mug pattern from the I Beleive book - I must have gone over it - ...

Morn'in Everyone ~ Wow, lots of activity over the weekend. My apologies for being absent the last few days. I had my DD from Seattle visiting along with my Grandson. It was so fun!

Diane ~ Hey, love that apple! Wow, 22 apple place mats! You will have the "apple making process" down to a fine science! Any trouble with the swril? Did you fuse it like the pattern recommends? Just curious. I want to make some of those mug cozies too; just haven't gotten to it! Hey, your welcome Diane ~ love the quick, easy and cute stuff!!!! :-*} Oh, almost forgot..... you mentioned that your leaf is going in the wrong direction.... look at my placemats again, specifically, the two leaves. I don't play by the rules either!!! Hee, hee!

Peg ~ We'll take a look at address correction and see what's up.....

Barb ~ Bet you love that 61 degree weather considering how hot it is everywhere else including TX! Oh, do wish you could share that low temp!

Linda ~ Can't wait to see that flip-flop quilt! I just know you are teasing me! I wonder if its the same pattern I told you about earlier, hummmmm...........

Betty ~ You're cool there in Michigan too! Care to share?????

Norma ~ You are right! I need to hop over there more often and give Darlene a bad time!!!! Oh, fun!!!! Of course, she gets her licks in on me too! Hee, hee! I get lost in the amount of pages Slacker's accumulate!

Diane - I thought the mug cozy was really quick and easy to make too. I didn't find the right mug yet. I just put the cozy on one that I had and covered up the writing so I could take a picture. I can't wait to see yours. I can think of so many things that would be cute to put in the mug for a gift too.

Made a Mug Cozy this afternoon from the new line at C.T. Twilight Frost. Will post a picture tomorrow as I still need a button and the velcro. Going to the Dollar Store to see if I can find some white mugs the proper size. This is so much fun. Ladies these projects are perfect for gifts and not hard to do. Might try the stuffed apple tonight.
Thanks Queen Mari for these fabulous ideas.

Hi Mari....we miss you in the Slackers group. Looks like you are keeping busy. CU

Carol Lee, what a nightmare with your email server!! Fire them!! LOL I knew you lived near Houston from a previous post - I whine about the cool weather here in Maine, but it is home and after being away for so long, I really am happy to be here. I wish I could send our rain your way!!

Diane - I love Apples and those placemats are really cute!! I'm going to have to order that book!! The placemats would be for me - I guess that wouldn't make much of a dent in my Christmas sewing would it? Maybe I'll put them off until AFTER Christmas!! Gotta get busy on my list!!

Barb Sorry I didn't answer before now. I have been battling with my e-mail people for 2 days. I have over 250 e-mail addresses and every time the e-mail makes an update to the system, they drop all of the addresses! I have had to re-enter them twice already and I am not a happy camper right now. My DD came over and re-did my e-mail system, but only part of the addresses are back. I know what I will be doing tomorrow.
Yes, the humidity has been very high and we have had very little rain for 2 months now. I live in Rosharon, which is about 40 miles from Galveston. Last year we had a hot summer, then 3 solid months of rain, no winter, a hurricane and now we are back to hot summer with no rain. I know, I'm whining, I'm soooo sorry. Carol

Thanks to MARI I'll never want to see another apple for the rest of my life!

The next on my list is the Mug Cozies. So I'll be blaming you shortly.

Then there is the friut. So tell Karen to beware!
