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.

Great poem, Cindy.  You are so talented!  I enjoy your work immensely.

I think I am going to just order the book and be a good girl and delete the fabrics in my shopping cart.  The postage won't kill me and I will still have the book and a more clear conscience.  LOL

Great poem, Cindy! I love your poetic license. 

She pops up with a poem every once in a while, Andrea. She is good. 

I am looking forward to the start, too. There's lots of UFO's and WIP's sitting around, but new Gifty projects are so much fun!

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday

Comment by Cindy yesterday

Time frame is wrong, I know it doesn't start next week, but hey, a bit of poetic license was used to make things fit. So don't think you're behind, or have the begin time wrong. Yep, it starts July 18.

Comment by Cindy yesterday

Oh goody, goody the count down has begun,

Time to finish up and finally be done,

Projects are about to be revealed,,

Week by week, make the ones that appeal

Friends and family happy to receive 

Creations made by you, hard to believe

Next week Gifty sewing ready to start

Led by Mari, we love from our heart,

Our numbers have grown, who'd thought

A few dozen followers now hundreds are brought

To this site checking each week,

Excitement grows each time we peek,

What is waiting to be stitched anew,

Thanks for the work each of you do.

Bust months are ahead, that we know

Gifts aplenty we will have to show.

I was wondering why I couldn't find the banana nut bread, Marge. Oh well, maybe next time. 

I could use that trash bin, Mary Alice. Some idiot moved my trash cans to my driveway on Thursday, before the trash guys came by. So, the company won't send them back out to empty the cans! Now I get to put all my trash in drum liners this week, and put everything out on Thursday. Who is the idiot that did that anyway? 

You are lucky, ranchmom. We had tons of rocks in Port Orchard. Fred, our dog, liked to dig them up so we could throw them for him. After 10 years of that, he had pretty flat teeth. Once, he started digging a rock, and Mr. Bullfrog realized it was pretty big. the thing was probably 18" across. We put it on the ground, and filled in the hole, we didn't want Fred to get hurt trying to pick up his rock. As far as I know, it's still sitting in the same spot. 

That's funny, MaryAgnes, sis wouldn't have known her friends took some rocks, either. 

The black soil in Iowa and Barbara's are amazes me. Ours is red. Red clay. Hard, red clay. I don't know how they grow all that wheat here. Maybe they add cow poo to the clay. I dunno, but I better quit goofing off and get out to the yard and do some work.

It's OK Agnes. I've only read a small portion of it and I have another quilt to make for my grandson. I found some more fabric with fishing on it, so he will love it. He got home yesterday from the hospital, and Sue wanted him to be able to sleep well in his own bed. When she called me this AM, Greg was on one end, Sue was on the other one (and had been there all night and now she'd like one too) and Beckett made the triangle. It's really nice to know that he is now home.

I live on rock--the Great Canadian Shield. Thank goodness I have no desire to garden or grow flowers other than a few on the balcony in pots. Blasting tends to be the mode used when rock needs to be altered.

I need to get back into routine before I even look at the book you are all drooling over. 

Ranchmom--Sounds like everything is mapped out well. Wishing you smooth sailing on your medial procedures, etc.
