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.

Morning my Gifty friends.   Another hot one already today,  105° .   Moose hasn't even chosen to go out for potty business yet today.  TOO darn hot for the pups to go into their yard.  It's in full shade but still too hot.

Hope you got some more sleep in Cindy and that you master that embroidery machine Barbara. 

What a great way to relax and enjoy the summer festival Agnes. 

I'm not sure just what I'll be up to today.   The big pot of pasta sauce went into the fridge last night.  Today I'll package most of it up for the freezer.  I put up a few bags of chopped green peppers last evening too.  My freezer is getting well restocked.

I got a watermelon as well yesterday and it is so delicious. So I made a deep fried fritter type bread that was part of my heritage tradition. If you want to know more check this out.

Change counting seems to be a thing of the past. In fact many store forbade their clerks to use their heads. We can thank our electronic age for that. Using your "thinking cap" is either not allowed or discouraged.

Our hot weather has moved on to other regions and the cloudy showery weather has taken over.

This weekend is our local summer festival--Norseman (the float plane) days. There is a flypast scheduled for this afternoon. I get front row seating from my balcony. Watched a nice fireworks display last night from the same spot.

Kiwi, Agnes? That looks a bit different from a cantelope. I think the cashiers do need a lesson in veggie identification. And change counting. 

You crack me up, Cindy. Cornfused. 

Chocolate says it's already the dog days of summer. He doesn't want to go outside. He is so spoiled. 

A new technique, Barbara? Don't vegg. We wanna see your ME watermelon or whatever is up your sleeve.

I didn't sleep well either, Cindy, but I am up so I can get to my favorite store, and hope they have some watermelon.

Good morning,

I have been up for quite awhile, sitting outside playing ball with Helga and drinking my coffee. The morning has been quite lovely, the birds are busy at the feeders, sky is a clear blue with a nice breeze. If the day stayed like this, it would be perfect.

Well time to go get something done.

ZZZzzz... Your up too early, Cindy. Hope you can get back to sleep.

Hot again today. Guess it is July in the midwest so that's nothing new. Soon it will be the 'dog days of August'.  The tomatoes and sweet corn love this weather. Apparently my summer squash does too, because it's out producing my needs. 

Church this AM then lunch with DS. I may get ambitious and load a small quilt onto my frame. I have to decide what to do for a backing. What I have isn't quite big enough so I need to find something to add in.

Also learned  (I hope) a new technique for my embroidery machine that I want to play with. I'll probably end up just vegging  though.

Wow, can't believe that I am the first one to post this morning. Wake up you sleepy heads. Just had to say that, now I am going back to bed. Onlyb5 am on the left coast. Far too early to be up for the day, especially after a bad night. Catch you all later!

CORNY for sure. 

I had a friend arrive with stronger hands than mine to finish the clamps of the kennel.  My little pups had some safe time running around and enjoying their space.     Everyone is exhausted now.   Even in the dark it's 93° outside.      Give us a break.  cool it off. 

I got a lot done today, pork cutlets sealed up with the Food Saver (7 of them),  3 big packages of hamburg,  a few packages of hot dogs,  diced green peppers,  diced onions.   All in the freezer.  AND a big pan of pasta sauce with onions/peppers/hamburg cooling down in the fridge to use some and freeze some tomorrow.   Been a productive day.

Guess we are spoiled here. Straight from the fields it's either 10 or 12 for $1. In the store it's 7 for $1. Our local corn isn't ready yet so what gets shipped in is 4 or 5 for $1. I wait for the local corn before buying it. Was wondering who would catch the pun. Teeheehee.

Somebody hit the wrong key or has a very bad case of dyslexia. Cindy that's a corny pun. Hee Hee
