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.

No special mail today Froggie.  but the walk was good.  I'm so tired,  about time to curl up in my nest.

Go get you some heat, Mary Alice! You need something. All that cold wind whipping around, brrrrr.

Very cute wooly sheep, Carol Ann! Mari will love it.

What DOES a nagging quilt sound like, Cora? Sometimes my quilts have to sit in the corner and think about what they have done to me. And sit there until they are going to do what I want them to! Just like kids. Do they have that whiny voice like kids? Or the sappy, sweet voice to get me to say yes?

Did you get anything good in the mail, after that walk in the raw weather, Thel?

Good idea, Rita. You have to make it something you will remember, not something like this: X%r39HbqQ@j

Now, how am I going to remember that password? I will not. And when you have to change it, do you change the whole thing, or just change that j at the end to a k?

I have that Bertie bird wool project. I just bought April, it's my birthday month. Now, where is it?

Whatever you have to do, Rita!  It's got to beat basting on the floor!

I think Rachel Pellman's designs are pretty recognizable in wool applique.  It was a practice project for me, as I have a wool applique BOM waiting in the top drawer.  The hand blanket stitch makes my fingers sore after awhile though.  I played Celtic Woman on my Google Home, and pushed through the finish this afternoon.  The label is still making nagging noises as me on my sewing table.  (Sigh)

Just back from a costco run also,  thanks for the compliments on that picture, wish I still felt as good as I did that day. biggest fish mine Dh caught all the rest while I played pool with my cousins.

Carol Ann great finish, I have that kit too, and now I must get it out and get busy, it would look so good in my livingroom now rather in aug.

Froggie, I try to use one main password even if they tell you not to. It is my mom's first name and year of her birth, but don't tell anyone. 

Thel a friend has golden retreivers, and puts thos headlamps on them for collars at night works great. Harbor Freight has them for 5 bucks.

Well time to put groceries away.

Just thought of a sandwich idea, but it is at BearCreek lodge, the jerk that did the quilt insult, but he has big tables that could be put together, should I  suck it up and ask him. He has asked my DH for several things ( work done for him) since the quilt episode. He owes me, right? I am great friends with his mom that lives in Charlston, SC but only see her once a year. Hmmmmm

LOVE your 3 Wooly Sheep Carol Ann.   I Love working with wool.   It's beautiful. 

Went for a walk to the PO with Penny in her papoose harness and Buzz on leash.  A bit raw out,  so I had a fleece wrap over Penny on my chest.  Buzz had on his insulated jacket and was busy running around so the chill didn't get to him. 

More pizza here today.  I haven't worn out it's welcome yet.  Only two pieces left and that'll be a snack later. 

I'm supposed to get a delivery from Amazon today.  They've usually arrived before now.  Maybe it's a new driver.

Carol Ann, wonderful finish. That is so cute. I did one with baby chicks and hen that looks like perhaps the same designer. 

Mary Alice, it's interesting that different doctors tell you conflicting info. I can tell you that no one has ever gotten them from me.

That little wool picture looks very familiar. It's in my stash along with a chicken one and a kitten one and I'm thinking I have one more also. I will have to look.

Back home from the dealership. Ran into Costco while there to get something I forgot on Monday and picked up a large pizza that you cook yourself. We have never tried it before so I hope it's good.

Hello all....cute lambs! I wonder what nagging quilts sound like? You ladies make my day....I just finished pinning BH mystery....sewing next....have a good one....

Cindy, my aunt is an avid NMSU basketball fan.  She's got season tickets, sits down on the floor area by court, and she's there come rain, snow, colds, flu, and even shingles can't keep her away from a game. It's the doctor who told her she was contagious because she waited so long to get to a doctor.

Carol Ann, gorgeous wool project!!

For Cindy, here is my completed (a few minutes ago!) wool project.  I call it "3 Wooly Sheep" and the original pattern is by Rachel Pellman.
