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.

I will post a pic just for you, Kathleen! I crack me up. I need to do a few things to the envelope, and mess with the corners of the little bags.

You crack me up too, Thel. I bet they thought you had abandoned them for the fur friends and bark park.

I think breathing is important, Kim, but I bet it was boring for such a long time.

No wonder I slept so late, MaryAgnes was up really early. Good luck.

I bet it is nice living in the country, Barbara. You crack me up, it's a squawk. I can't spell that, I had to look at yours twice to get it right without swiggly red lines under it. Those American Test Kitchen recipes are great, DD1 loves them, and so does MaryAgnes. I'm glad CHris is gone from the show, I didn't like him, he annoyed me.

I need to do a few things outside, so I better get hopppin' before it gets too hot. Then I will hip in the swim spa. And hopefully after that get some things finished in the quilting room. I better get busy going through those bags, I only have two weeks and one day before the boys move. Oh that's sad. I better call two men and a truck.

Good morning. It's still cloudy here today and sort of cool I have the door open to the screened porch and the A/c hasn't come on. I can hear the birds chattering. Sometimes I love living in the country. Other times, I wish I didn't have to drive so far to get anywhere civilized.

I hope Mari will check in and approve our attempt at weekly projects. I think the placemats will be really quick and easy if you gals want to call it a week 2 project.

Thel, that's great. You're getting your sewing mojo back. Hope to see pics soon.

Froggie that Santa is a hoot. DSIL is gonna love it. Oh maybe I should have said 'squawk' as that's a parrot not an owl on Santa's shoulder. lol 

Mary Agnes, I hope all goes well in court today (for you). Were you up so early to prepare? I wish we could all come as character witnesses. 

Gotta make some Blockhead and Splendid Sampler blocks today. I sure don't want to get behind. It's too hard to get back in the swing if I falter.

 I also want to get a quilt (more like a table topper size) loaded on the little frame to see if I can finish something.

I have a top round roast getting ready in the frig. I'm trying an American Test Kitchen recipe that will take hours do right. DS will be over for Thursday visit and he loves roast beef.

Have a good one.

Good Very Early Morning.  Court today.  Not happy about it.  Not ready and my attorney is probably going to throttle me because I haven't don't what I was supposed to do.  We haven't been out yet so no weather report yet.

So, is the Santa cookies placemat out next project?  Is it new?  I remember several years ago Mari came up with a sort of note to Santa that started "Dear Santa, I can explain." I loved that one, didn't make it, but I thought it was very clever.

I think I'll try to take a wee nap.  BBL

You have to be SO smart Kim.  The people you come into contact with will benefit from you knowledge.  I hope the people that would respond to my needs would be as educated.  Bless you. 

I'm SEWING..............woohoo

I love love love July's Santa with his parrot and grass skirt. He is going to love it.

Just home from a 3 hour CME Class on airway and respiratory. Ugh. Important, but not entertaining for 3 hours.

No sewing today but there's always tomorrow.

LOVE love you work Froggie.  SO awesome !!!! What a nice birthday surprise.    Yah on your finish.   

You gotta catch up on emails Kathleen or you'll have a "lost" feeling.  You'll get the pics done when you can. 

My sis and I are starting a new project together.  I actually have been sewing!!!   The first time my machine has been on for months.  I think my cutting mat was looking at wondering who the heck I am.  My iron said WHAT !!! My heart said YAHOOO>    I crack me up.

Oh my goodness Froggie - he's gonna love that!

I hope you post pictures of the zipper bags and envelope. I still need to take pics of the items I finished binding at my mom's. Instead, I spend too much time catching up on emails!!

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 14 hours ago

I also finished two zipper bags and my envelope, but I need to get the corners poked out better. I am so happy that I actually got something finished.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 14 hours ago

Oh thanks, Barbara. Now, why couldn't I just go look for it in their free patterns? That is too much work. I am a tired old lady.

I bet that camel slobber is stickier than Chocolate's. Yuck. I gotta quit thinking about it.

I finished the July santa for DSIL1. I think I got the skin color right.
