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.

Oh no, sad news, Leonard Nimoy passed away.  So down now.  I loved Mr. Spock on original Star Trek.  

Now I gotta make myself a Star Trek Quilt for memories.

Oh no, Mother Sheila is out.  It was a balmy 27 degrees this morning and with the wind chill factor it was 20.  Mom and I went out in this blowing cold weather to go to local fabric store and use my 25% off coupon at one place, 50% off coupon at another place, and to get myself a new phone plus iPad mini as they had a great deal!  Now to learn to use both of them,..LOL.  It's not like my old iPhone or the iPad I have, it's newer and I made sure it had their interent connection so I can go anywhere and have it there.

Tomorrow should be in the 70s, but windy.   I'll just be happy it'll be warmer.

Seems a dog has adopted me.  I go out to feed my cat, Chatita, and low and behold, this little chihuahua gets through fence to eat with her! They must have been hungry as they cleaned the plate!  Poor little chihuahua.  Who knows who owns him as there are tons of chihuahuas here just roaming around and barking at everyone.  This one was rather tame though, not one bark.  

Debra, take care of that cold now.  Hate having that hacking cough that seems  to stay with you forever! Drink lots of hot toddy's, oh, I mean tea with lemon and honey ( a splash of whiskey, alright, make it two splashes-big ones).

Made a whole stack of chili rellenos today, and then mom and I went over to my aunt's for dinner with cousins, Felipe and Cindy (aunt's daughter).  I was surprised that they had a B-day cake for me.   A day early, but it's nice to have a surprise.....so why did I have to make dinner??  My aunt made the rice and salad.

Mom used to tell us when we were pouting, "Slip trip bust a lip." We knew what that meant. Cold went to my chest. Cough cough cough.

Comment by Sheila Craft 14 hours ago

I'm partial to the 50 - 70 degree range, myself. And, I do see you with that lip stuck out, Froggie. Be careful - you might step on it!

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC 15 hours ago

Good Grief!!  Why would anyone want to be outdoors when it's over 70?  And what's wrong with putting on a sweater and enjoying the cool weather outside when it's between 45 and 60?  Afraid I wouldn't do real well south of the Mason Dixon line.  I've always had trouble distinguishing certain blues from certain greys.  Eye Doc said I'm not color blind though.

Oh no, and I bet you make me pull in my bottom lip, too, Sheila! Can you see me sticking it out and pouting?

Good new group, MaryAgnes! I will join it.

I agree, Lynne, 60-90, otherwise, stay inside. That would be nice. Now we can have a pool party at your house, too, I bet your pool season is longer than mine.

Blues! Yum. They were talking on TV about people not being able to see blues as well as other colors or some such nonsense. I think I have the blue gene in my blue eyes.

Lynne W, great to have you checking in!  Now, hoping that Lou Ann will drop us a few lines to let us know things are okay at her house.

Debra, you take care of yourself! We miss you when you're not here with good advice and a few laughs.  DH is finally getting over his cold. It has lingered a long time.

I love the new Luminesence (?) fabric line but am trying to keep myself from ordering any.  I just got 2 stacks of the Birch Tree group and haven't started that project yet.  I am a sucker for anything with blues!

Great Idea, Mary Agnes!

No sunshine on this part of the west coast. Has been dumping buckets all night. Cora send it a bit more to the south. Funny thing is, ob a clear day we can see Cora's Island from our Island. But we are suppose to have a week of sunny weather in the upper 40's to low 50's. I will be happy with that!

Almost finished with my Downton Abbey mystery quilt. Its looking very nice. I changed our one fabric and so happy I did. Should have pics to post soon. Then it will be time for the March Little pattern to post.

Mary Agnes, great idea!  I have lots of things not finished!

Sheila, come on down to Texas, it's a chilly 37 out, but next week those weather folks are predicting 70-80 and some sun!  It's funny how you get acclimated to the weather down here.  I only go outside between 60 and 90 degrees.  Anything else and it's too cold or too hot for me, although now that there is a pool in the backyard, the 90 degree thing will change. 

Stay warm every one and don't forget, that silly groundhog said that winter will be over in 2 more weeks!
