Welcome to Gifty Galore 2014!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

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 Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 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.

Yea!  Mari is having a cup of coffee with me!  There's no better taste first thing in the morning!

Stay out of the thunder Barbara!  We had 4 kids at the football field here struck by lightening and it had barely started to sprinkle.  Seems the lightening hit a nearby tree, and traveled through the ground and got the group of 4 heading out of the field.  One of them needed to have CPR, and luckily there was a parent nearby who performed CPR.  All 4 went to the hospital and were later released.  If that parent hadn't been there to perform CPR, one student might not have survived. That's so scary!

And what's going on in Missouri is just unbelievable.  Nothing is going to get done until they calm down and let the law run it's course. Rioting every night is not going to bring justice, it's only going to bring Military Law (which may be "shoot first, ask questions later).  One thing for sure, this cop (if he goes to trial) may need to go to trial in a whole different state to be prosecuted fairly.  They may need  to move him and his family to another state for security, if they've not done that already.  I turned off the news after that.  So depressing to hear all that with my first 3 cups of coffee!

We are expecting rain too, but not till later this PM.  May get some laundry done.  Here's my not so even centered table topper.

Barbara, your weather sounds ominous!

Ranchmom, what a bother for you and that ol' wrist. I commend you for your perseverance though. What a difficult problem!

Mari, I agree the day is so much better if you can ease in to It.  I hate getting up and having to hurry.  I love to sit and relax with my morning coffee. 

I have been trying to do some sewing with  the brace on my left wrist  and hand.  I also so got put on some medicine that should help with my headaches but it kind of makes me groggy in the morning.  I must admit though I haven't had the sharp pains with this med and hopefully eventually the dull aching pain will leave also.

Well it is a day of errands in town and Ranchdad says we need to leave in a couple of hours so I guess I better get moving so I can be ready, it  will be late tonight before we get back home.  Going to town would not be bad except for the 2 hour drive it takes to get there.  I am hoping today to make it to a quilt  shop and be able to do a little shopping we will have to see what happens.

At 3:30 AM I'd be stumbling into the day.

If you look on a weathermap and see the big blob of orange and red rain central USA, that's coming my way. It's getting darker by the minute here. I think it might rain.

Sounds like a fun day Anne.
