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.

My singer wound the bobbin in the bobbin case too! B Sew Inn has a Singer just like mine as a door stop, I thought I should take a pic of it today, but didn't. Maybe next time.

I can see the lace top and bell bottoms, Mary Alice! You were so groovy.

I wondered if that was near you, Lou Ann, I heard the town name, and thought it was your town. It is sad.

Looks delicious, Mary Alice. Yum, I will have some, please.

Love your mug rugs, Debra. Great colors.

Your pics of CT are great, Barbara, what a gorgeous area. I wasn't fond of CT for the year we lived there, but it was very pretty, and my friends and I had some fun!

I had a great time at the Destiny class today. We learned a lot of the new features, now to play some more and see what I can do! Then, DD1 got here this evening. Sis in law, DD1 and I are going to our craft fair tomorrow, it's called 'An Affair of the Heart'. Twice a year for over 25 years now! Seven buildings full of goodies. We won't get through them all, but will have a good time looking and buying stuff~

Love the mug rugs! They turned out so cute! Mary Alice, I LOVE pesole.

I started sewing doll clothes on my mom's treadle machine. After graduating from college, I bought a Kenmore with those cams. Now I sew on my Janome Memory Craft 6600. My sister has the treadle at her house...the farmhouse I grew up in. I still have my Kenmore. It can not be beat for heavy sewing like blue jeans!

Me too Sheila! Wow, beautiful supper Mary Alice and what a gift that sewing machine is Debra! Your mug rugs are beautiful!

Lou Ann, I always wondered how those worked. Interesting and obviously provide life saving info. I'm glad Anne has one now!

Barbara, your part of the world is so gorgeous! Thank you for sharing.

Mary Alice, actually, I have to say... YOU ARE A TEASE!!! growl, growl...

Jeez! I'm gone for a couple of hours just to come back to more great photos and the dinner of my choice. Hmmmm...Let's see - If I wasn't so full from lunch, I'd have headed down Debra's way but, since she's on her way to Mary Alice's, I guess I'll fire up the broom and head a little farther afield for dinner. That makes sense as it will give me a bit more time to digest lunch. I went to KFC & ordered their 3 pc tender $5.00 deal. Got back to work with it and there were about 7 tenders in it - Holy Moly - I was giving it away and was still eating on it on my way home. I think I'll pack the Alka Seltzer just to get me through the evening 'cause it's bound to be some good grub.
