Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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.

Cold in Maine? I will be right there! It's going to be 97 here today.

Yes I do, Mary Alice. It was the big hoses.

NOOOO, Thel, Mari keeps us guessing. We never know which project she will pick until she posts it! It's a big secret. Sew much fun! Oh I see Cindy gave you a good description of what Mari does. Yes, we get funny little hints.

Last day of June AND leap second day, Mari! That's what the news told me. Mornin'!

I love your pic, Kathleen! And I love the giraffe mug, it's one of my favorite animals at the zoo. And the Okapi, and the elephants, and the monkeys..... I need a zoo trip, but not in 97 degree weather.

You really are finishing things up, Beth! You make the rest of us look bad.

Where is Diane? She is probably sharpening her needles for the start of the race season called Gifty. She sure races through the projects!

I am headed to Sit and Sew, but I better get hopppin' so I can get there by 10.

Good rainy morning.  This has been a rainy month!  And "they" say we are behind in water!!  HA.... not at my house.  Everything feels like it is getting "moldy."  Today I am putting together a backing a little quilt I did a while ago.  I am going to quilt this one myself.  And I am hopeful that today or tomorrow I will be picking up Lasting Legacy.  By the way, I made the backing for that one making up a patchwork of left over LL fabrics.  The final "quilting" project I want to do for the day is the putting together of a little rag quilt I made using lots of flannels and homespun.  I am trying to finish up all this stuff so I will be ready for Gifty!!!  Well, sort of.  My travels start up soon so that is probably really the reason.

I am enjoying being back and hearing what all of you are up to......

Good morning everyone! Happy Tuesday! Well, here we are beginning a new day again. It's the last day of June! Can you believe it?! Wow, how our days sail by...   BBL...

Good morning Gifty Gals ! Thanks for helping me understand. I guess I do get excited about new things.
Figured I'd stop in for a quick peek while I have my morning coffee. I sure hope Moose is a good boy today meeting new people. We're doing a bit of a puppy shuffle. We get picked up by one gal, taken about 12 miles and switch to another vehicle with another dog........from there to vet and then a similar shuffle to get back home which will be a bit more hassle cause we'll have 110 pounds of sluggish dog.
Well, better check out Littles. Later ladies.

Good Morning.  Just lost a post.  Drat!!!  Another beautiful day in Gotham.

Is Thel getting a tad overexcited about the start of Gifty?  She'll be neck and neck with Diane to finish each project first.

Poor Moose.  But it's gotta be done.

I had a feeling Maine was going to be cooler than it was last year when it was unseasonably HOT.  Sure hope the meet up with Anne happens.

Thel, as for the projects no one knows what it will be until it's posted. Past years we have been known to bug Mari for a hint or two the week before as to what will be the new project. She has given us some very interesting clues to guess from. We all have a great time trying yo figure it out. Some times we get it right, other times we are stumped as to what it will be. And there are times when it's coming from another source and not the book. You'll catch on very quickly. Oh, and no they're not necessarily in any particular order.

I had another successful day of sewing on my flower quilt. No toolbar here so added the current progress picture on MY page.

Safe travels..for your great trip....I'm sure it's gonna be an awesome time.
The Man and I are getting picked up for our trip to the vet at 8:30 am. Plans were changed a bit to make sure there was someone strong enough to help move a 110/120 pound anesthetized dog around, like back into the van. This is a small town vet that doesn't have a lot of staff so we got all the plans made.
Do the Gifty projects go in sequence with the book? ........so looking at the book you know whats coming on July 6th, or are we gonna be surprised with a project? I'm new here, so just wondering.
My little Ms. JuneBug sure is a lap puppy. I'm so happy I was able to bring her into our family.

I'm trying to get some baby quilts out of the way, and that drunkard's path. My cousin came to see what I'd done, and she loved the drunkard's path.  Said I could sell it for $1,000 in California.  I'm going, yeah, right, I don't think so.

Yes, Froggie, your back hurts cause you were helping me irrigate.  Don't you remember pulling those huge hoses around the yard with me???

Never got to washing my truck.  Maybe tomorrow, since we have a chance of rain.  Maybe I can improve those chances for us.

Mumms the word Thel, I won't let on that I know something the dog doesn't know about yet.
