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'm with you there girl!!!   I'm glad you can scoot yourself down the stairs.  I bet it feels good to be out of bed.

Anne, good to hear from you! You have been one busy woman. 

Well, I made my way downstairs for lunch and read four pages, with some 1970s music on youtube in the background. Some real foot stompin head banging Grand Funk Railroad, Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer . . . really brought me back . . . how many here were with me back then? I know it's not the kind of music for everyone but I liked it.

Morning all !!! Drizzly here again.  But a pleasant peaceful day. 

I have made fresh noodles in forever Anne.   What a great time with the kids.  What wonderful memories you're creating for them. 

Thanks for the compliments on my scrappy.  I really am enjoying it.  I didn't get any more sewing last evening.  I fell asleep in my chair. 

Not much color within my view here and leaves are already falling off the trees. 

Continue prayers to everyone who needs healing.  I continue to ignore housework as I sew AND hope no one shows up unexpectedly.  I crack me up. 

Hey ,  this is hump day.  I don't have any camel pics to share tho.

Thel, great news on the girls; and I am loving the progress you are making on your quilt. Gotta love Moose, taking a head count ☺

Awww, thanks, MaryAgnes. I try. Sometimes it's tough. In a minute, I am going to clean the kitchen floor. Yippee! 

Rain in the PNW in the fall? Can't be. Remember, about that mess, slow and steady... 

Yeah, lasagna, IL, OK, MO... 

Wow, 51 weeks, that was a quick turn around! My girls are a year and a half apart. That was a lot of diapers for a while. I used cloth. No pampers here. And lasagna will always balance on our brooms. You can even start eating it on the way to IL. 

I went to PT, she decided I was much better. The spot she has been working on is a lot better. There are other things still, but the one joint is much better. Plus I have some new stretches to do, so that will be good. I got us a donut on the way home to celebrate. Yum, donut and coffee. What a good combination.

Good idea, Mari.  Address the mess; just don't address it to me. I've got more than enough of my own.

I don't know, Barbara. My younger (by 51 weeks) sister is retiring from her second career after she retired from her first with the IRS. And I just stopped working. Never planned to retire (so have no retirement funds) but here we are.

Hope I can balance that lasagna on the back of the broom.

Good morning Gifties. Rainy here today with thunder even. My tree is finally starting to get a little color. 

Thel I think it looks fantastic. Great job being able to stay scrappy. Good news on the girls.

Mary Agnes you better o collect your lasagne soon.  Then you can zip on over to IL with Chou on your way to OK. Shame on your landlord. 

Nice tour of the fabric treasure, Patte. 

Yes, and those Drs. that were young when I started working as a nurse are now retiring. But I'm retired, too. How did that happen? 

Hope the scan doesn't show anything nasty, Rita.

Cora that's a great idea. I love how generous people are.

Good morning Gifties! Woke up to a very rainy day; my coat still has beads of water all over it! Chilly too and grateful there is no wind. Two days down and three to go. So much yet to do...

Thel, I love scrappy and your quilt top is looking pretty good. It was a scrappy quilt that made me fall in love with quilts to begin with!

Now, to address the mess...  BBL...

Froggie, I have a feeling all time with you is fun time.

I guess that type of group would have to work fast, Thel. Good for all of you involved! The quilt is turning out great, I love that fabric for the sashing and borders. 

Presserfoot! Who knew, Anne? Good for Amy showing you how to free motion. The twins are 5? They sure have grown fast. I bet they are so sweet. And they learned the family tradition of noodle making for Thanksgiving lasagna. 

PT this morning, and dentist this afternoon. I could just take the hot glue and stick the crown back in. Who needs Gus? I crack me up. Hopefully I can get some fun time in between.
