Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

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.

Good afternoon Gifties............I've been having a decent day.  I enjoyed some time outside with Moose.  An acquaintance stopped by for a short visit.  Once of these days she'll realize that no matter how often she asks for a loan she won't get one.  I know too many people first hand that she borrows from and doesn't pay back.  I will always "pay it forward" when I can but not to someone like that.  She only stops when looking for money.

Too bad on those storms Cindy. I hope it gets better so you can have your trip. 

I've been working on my pillow.  The quilting is complete on the front. After a break I plan to prepare the pieces for the back.  I'm gonna put my own little spin on the finishing touches. I think you'll like it. 

I sure would love some time at the ocean.  That's one of the things I miss the most here in MO.  I love the sounds, the smells, my toes in the sand.   I daydream about it sometimes.  I miss the ocean more than I miss a bunch of the people I left behind.

Hey ladies, a quick pop in to leave a message about Monday. Hubby just tried to get off the Island, but is in the process of coming back home. This storm has brought branches, debris and worst of all, power lines down onto the roads! If it's still storming like this tomorrow, I won't be driving down to Vancouver in it. Just too bad of conditions and I definitely don't want to become a statistic. All these months and months of beautiful sunshine and now the weekend we plan to meet up, the weather changes to this. Good for the fires with the rain, bad with the wind. Will know more in the morning when we see what happens. Supposed to be nicer tomorow, but we shall see. Meantime, I am going to pack my bag and plan on the weather cooperating. Will keep you posted.

THanks, Cindy, that means I am Gael! From the 1700's.

It sounds like you are having a great time, Diane. I will eat your lobster, but someone else can have the scallops. I just don't like them.

I haven't done anything in the quilting room, but keep thinking about things I want to be doing. We cleaned a bit, but other than that, I have been sitting looking at the computer all day. I'm still doing updates from things jumping on the bandwagon with Windows 10.

God bless you Thel, for all the love you give your fur babies.

Oh Thel, I'm so sorry for your loss.  He is not in any pain anymore.  Quilty hugs sent your way.

Barbara, love the elephant quilt!

Good morning gifties from Beautiful lush green Prince Edward Island! We arrived on Wed in pouring rain but it cleared late evening and has been beautiful ever since. Of course we did all the Anne of Green Gables things yesterday and see the musical tonight. We are off this morning to a local bake sale and then the Quilt Gallery. They ate lobster yesterday and scallops tonight. I can't eat either but believe me am not lacking from food. Coming from the prairies I just want to look at and listen too the ocean all the time. We did put our feet in and it was freezing. Hope Mari and the visiting gifties have a fabulous time. Maybe the next one I can come!!

Little Ms JuneBug is playing her role in the family healing this evening.  Right now she's snuggling mama and giving me kisses.  She's my little sugar cube.

Oh and BTW& Gael is anyone of Gaelic- Irish descent. So you can rest easy, it's nothing bad or derogatory. :~)

I promise to take my camera with me and post photos. Hmm, wonder if they got Mary Agnes on Oreo? Sounds like she's having a blast already. Just can't wait until we're all together Monday! CT will never be the same.
Guess I had best call it a night. Just nodded off trying to post his note. Check in tomorrow.

Uh oh, Barbara! I thought we got rid of the quilt police! What did I do now???? Strip club? You know, this knee brace makes me feel so confined, I just want to peel clothes and everything off! I have never had that feeling before, but if I don't get rid of this thing soon, oh, maybe I will be going to gael.

Where did this random baby come from, Debra? How old is he? I love babies laughs, they are so free.

You met three ranchsons, MaryAgnes? I wish I was with you so so bad!

Why oh why did I decide I had to clean the kitchen floor tonite? It was nasty, and I pulled out the Swiffer, but found out I am out of the cleaning solution. And it's not refillable! So I was so smart I put on a pad, and poured some pine sol and water on the floor and cleaned that way. I love the smell of pine sol, but it's messing with my already messed up head. I think Mr. Bullfrog and I caught DGS2's sinusitis. I crack me up. DGS2 doesn't think that's too funny.

Myra and I had a great time, once I finally found her house! I missed the turn, singing off key too loud, I suppose. So, the next exit goes through this tiny town, and I wound around all over the place. Somehow, I found her. I don't know how I find my way home. She texted me later and asked if I was in Kansas yet. I told her yes, and to send the RCMP! We got a lot done, her August little is gorgeous! That's what she worked on while I made up my own blocks for the rest of my Sylvia's Sampler Quilt. I even named my blocks things like 'Myra's Favorite'.
