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.

Good Morning, Gifties.  I spoke too soon.  Summer is returning.

Froggie, check out Mr. Bullfrog portrait at http://www.pinterest.com/pin/80220437088046680/

Have fun, Debra.

7 more weeks!!!  Where does the time go?

I suppose I could be the Plaintiff, but I don't want to be a lawyer any more.  I think I'll just send an insulting letter to company president.

Mary Alice, if that material is a have to have, I can check the Hancock's near me. Let me know.

Well, I'm off to do some "shopping". Don't know what I'll come home with. But will have fun, I know. The ladies I am going with, relatives of the president, are a load of fun. I'm going with them because I don't know where she lives.


May all your ups and downs be in stitches.

Good morning Tuesday Gifties! Wahoo! Seven more weeks of projects! Just thought I would let you know! I hope you are all sewing, sewing, sewing all those gifts you want to give!

Oh no, Mary Alice! Oh well, I bought all the background fabric the store had. They had about 2 yards left, and that's what I needed. You will have to come visit me, and we can see if the Yukon store has some. Yup, that's it.

Don't give 'them' any ideas, Kathy! Fingerprints for a bottle of wine or beer? Daddy didn't have any fingerprints. When we went to get his state ID instead of driver's license, he was about 88. The thing wouldn't pick up fingerprints, on any of his fingers! He said, Well, I have been using them for 88 years. He didn't care.

I am off to get a haircut then go to sit and sew. I have to find my tote and figure out what I will be working on.

I love the Punky-Wunkin..the layout is darling!..I too need to find my fabric for this..it is laying under the mattress or hanging on a hanger..underneath a big winter coat...

Debra..I am so happy for you!!..this is your moment!..
Enjoy all the blessing it brings!!

Age discrimination it is! Go for it Mary Agnes! Maybe they were just making sure you were old enough to drink cause you look so young! That would be my story!

We don't have a Hancock's fabric store,...bummer!

Cut out another bionic gear bag,...I've really got to get that right.

I'd break the cameras, too, Mari! We shouldn't quit our day jobs.

Good for you, Debra! You will be like a kid in a candy store!

I love the layout for the Punky-Wunkin, Shannon! And the name. It was fun to make, I just need to get busy quilting it now. And I want to make another one, one for me and one for the Christmas tote!

It's from Hancock's, Mary Alice! I love swirls.

Yeah, Shannon, who named the quilt?

We always wondered if we switched badges at work, would the gate guards notice? They never looked at our faces! Age discrimination, that will be lots of fun, MaryAgnes! You will get lots of quilting money. And beer money. Thanks, I like punkins.

I have to go look at this week's project, since I am almost finished with punky, I need to start another project!

I have a very easy way of keeping track of everything.  It's called Piles.  The older something is the closer to the floor it is.  If someone came in and turned my piles upside down I would be lost.  Don't know my square footage.  In NY we talk about rent controlled or market rate more than size other than small, smaller and smallest (mine).  I'll try to measure tomorrow to see who wins.

I bet Shannon let one of her kids name the Punky-Wunkin quilt.

My friend will go to the grocery store tomorrow with my ID and see if they notice.  Important thing is she get her beer.  Guy from the State Liquor Authority said I should try turning it into an age discrimination lawsuit which might be fun.

You've got to sleep tonight Debra.  You have to be at your best tomorrow. Have fun.

Oh, Mari, you little devil, you.

Your punkins are wonderful, Froggie.

I love the Punky-Wunkin quilts!!! I really need to make that one up!  It's so cute!  I have the fabric for that somewhere here.  I think it's the  box I labeled Autumn wall hanging. Hmm, I'm gonna have to iron it first.

Froggie, love the background fabric on your Punky-Wunkin!!  

Debra, you're going to enjoy having lots of fabrics again!!  Way to go!!

Here are my Punky-Wunkin quilts from #13.  It was a lot of fun to design.  Here are recent pics of the wall hanging and throw quilt top.
