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.

I saw you were getting more porcupines, MaryAgnes. It can go away. I am ready for weeds and heat.

Poor Peaches, Mary Alice! I hope he can fix her quick and cheap.

Barbara, once my mom asked me to give her a perm. I told her NO! but I would give her fifty bucks and drive her to a salon. She didn't take me up on it, but recently I found out, she asked Myra to do it. Myra did it for her. No wonder she was the favorite kid!

DGS1 is leaving in a bit to go to Denver. I told him no dope. Even though it's legal in Denver, he can't have any! He laughed at me. He's a good kid.

Should have checked Littles group first. I see Lou Ann is there. WooHoo.

Hurray, Tigger gets to come home to snuggle. Bet he eats better, too.

I'm worried about Anne and Lou Ann, too. Hope they are OK.

Today was annual visit to the Vet for Sophie and Fluff. They got their shots and sophie had a needle aspiration of one of her fatty bumps. It was negative but is in a place that I need to keep watch on - she wants to remove it if it starts growing. Also got wormer for the rest of the cats. Everybody has cooperated except Herc. He runs as soon as he sees the vial.

Hope you get your machine back in working order soon, Mary Alice. Good thing you have back up.

My Mom used to have me give her home perms. That was alwasy fun- NOT. I was so happy when one of her neighbors opened a hair salon in her home and Mom decided to go there.

Update! He's home & happy to be. He gobbled down his Fancy Feast tuna & shrimp dinner pretty quick! He told me all kinds of sad tales (pun intended) about his adventure on the way home. He's currently on my lap watching dh & pup-letta play tag & tug of war.

Sheila, I missed the Tigger episode. So glad to hear all is moving forward in the right direction for you both. Animals, where would be be without them? Well, uh, I know where I would be...

I'm going home to hug mine...

Welcome home, Tigger.  You both will be happy tonight, Sheila.

I am glad that Tigger is coming home!  I know you will be cuddling with him extra tonight!

Oh yay!  Tigger is coming home!  Great news Sheila!!  You'll have you're cuddle buddy home tonight.

Talked to Doctor Izzy, and Peaches has to go in.  We tried some diagnostics over the phone and it didn't work, so he needs to see what's going on in there.  Already packed her up in her rolley cart.  Now to set up the Pfaff CV.  As it turns out that may be a good thing, because I start the HoopSisters Sewn Seeds BOM next week with them.  I'm hoping all that yardage of fabrics for a queen sized quilt comes in by Tuesday from CT. Managed to get it all on clearance, except for one piece.

Felipe was happy as a clam with a pearl eating his chili rellenos. He ate 4 rellenos, half a pot of Mexican rice, and a whole lotta chili relleno sauce on top of everything.  I don't know how he's so skinny!  Well, he won't eat breads, tortillas or sweets.   And he refuses anything with mayonnaise, mustard or ketchup, and all salad dressings.  He keeps telling us we need to bottle that chili relleno sauce we make cause it's so good.  Invited him today for left over chili rellenos and I've got a beef pot roast in the crockpot for him as well. 

Time to set up that Pfaff CV, and start that Juki finishing up quilting my Christmas quilt.  That's what I have on my agenda today to finish.  Want it out of the way to start other projects without feeling guilty it's still waiting for me.

So glad to hear Tigger's news.  

Get well wishes to Debra's DH.

Yesterday I thought it was over.  Early evening the temp was in the 40's and all the ugly piles of ice were melting and then the rain came, but hey rain and 40's is good for those ugly piles of ice, but then this morning dawned.  More porcupines and they're still falling.  Even I, the lover of winter, have had enuff already!!!

I've got my new UFO cut out.  Many many denim squares from 2 inches to 12.  I went to Sally Ann for Family Day and found a couple of pairs of jeans that are 100% cotton so I'm going to donate my cotton/spandex pairs.  Amazing that not even Levi's are 100% any more.  I must have looked at 100 pairs to find the two I could use.

Where or where is Anne?  I am officially worried.

I have a motto about cutting hair, Kathleen! 'Friends don't let friends cut their hair'. I don't know how, don't want to know how, and go to the beauty shop, and that's where I tell other people to go. Perm? Color? No way, go to the beauty shop.
