Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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.

Hoping Chou and Junebug are doing well. Keep us posted.

Working on 3 blocks of a quilt along. This is the 9th and last block---YAY!

It's been a lazy Saturday. I did iron all the fabrics for the BH mystery. Hope to work on that tomorrow. Kim, I have no idea how you do that leaders and enders, but my understanding is you'll end up with 2 quilts....am I right??

Well,  I've been talking to my rescue friends and my sister and have decided to ride it out.  Many people say their dogs have ad varying amounts of grapes with no ill effects before they realized they should not have them. My sis' pup is same age and size and was eating them regularly before she found this out.  I'm gonna keep a close eye on her and watch for any symptoms.....The nearest vet open on the week-end around here is about 60 miles away, so lots of prayers and TLC for home care to be enough.

This article makes it sound like you should call your vet immediately, Thel.

Goodness me,  thank you for the advice.  I had absolutely NO clue about grapes and raisins.  I will keep a close eye on her.  She is about 11 pounds and ate 5 of them I think.  I wonder if I should give her some gravy with her food.  That seems to keep things loose.   Geeze something that you think is such a "cute" thing come to find out is life threatening. 

I got 3 full meals of turkey/stuffing/veggies & gravy put together in containers and in the freezer.  I still have some for a couple days too.  I'm starting to find the fridge now with getting stuff in the freezer. 

Prayers for Chou to be able to be pain free and heal.

It is not unusual for us to have really cold weather this time of year, this morning was a little colder then normal but not a record.  DD and family decided to stay one more night so the visit to the HenHouse has been delayed until tomorrow.  Busy playing with the Granddaughters.  Little Sophia is getting so big, she had scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes and some crumbs of a roll.  She smiled and talked all through dinner.

Grapes and raisins can cause renal failure in some dogs.  JuneBug is pretty small so you'll need to keep close eye on her for symptoms.

Poor Chou- hard to keep a pup on R&R for 2 weeks.  Hope he's feeling better.

Got most of my Christmas decorations up these past 2 days, have to work on my Christmas dishes tomorrow.

Finished up my 1st rag quilt, just have to "rag" it up in the washer and dryer.  Looks pretty cute but I think I should have made it bigger.  Suppose to be baby quilt but maybe it'll be good for carseat or stroller.  Of course after a few trips thru the wash it may end up a placemat!

Rainy day which we needed.  Been warm in 60s but should be back to more seasonal temps tomorrow.  -16, now that's cold Ranchmom.

Well I've still gotten nothing done.  My brother showed up and decided today was the day we take mom's truck in to the dealer for servicing.  Mind you, I've been asking him for about 3 months.  So today it took him quite a while to get the truck started.  He had to jump start the battery and even that took some time.  Once it ran for a bit, I followed him to dealer where we left it for a definite oil and filter changes, asked  them to check the bands, antifreeze, etc.  But I want a phone call on Monday before they start any work. 

Got home and mom's debating on going to church.  It's really cold here today (she's been complaining all day) and our church doesn't put on the heater or AC when needed.  So we are either sweating or freezing. Poor mom always puts on long john tops and bottoms to go to church, double socks, and an undershirt.  She still puts on her jacket to stay warm.  Just crazy that parishioners need to be a corpsicle to attend mass on Sundays!

Fingers crossed that Chou gets better fast. You'll have to take him a doggie bag!

Grapes and raisins are not good for dogs! I think it's a toxicity thing.

No leftovers, no cleanup, no mess here (except the sewing room).

Hope Chou starts feeling better. 

Yes Thel, watch for signs of blockage. The skin on the grape causes the problem, from what I understand.

Ooh that's cold, Ranchmom. You are one strong pioneer lady.

I'm trying to recuperate from all the cooking, eating and cleaning up this afternoon. Leftovers are great. Sorry your pies weren't up to par Mary Agnes. Will the bakery give you a refund?
