Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

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.

Got my CT package today and it includes the Gifty book so, I'm sort of ready to go.  I say sort of because I've gotten horribly side-tracked today. I began the day doing some ME blocks for a swap. Decided to take a break and vacuum. Well, I don't know how it happened (maybe a case of Froggie's cleaning bug???) but, I'm now in the middle of sorting through things that need to GO. Yep - vacuum is still sitting in front of the machine...

Where in the northeast are you Kim?  It has been beautiful last 2 days, loving the lack of humidity.

Spoke too soon on my Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt.  After I put on borders found one little snowman lacking eyes and his nose.  So now it's (kinda) finished. 

No sewing for me, painting ceilings where the ice dams leaked this past winter.  Snow farm in South Boston still has snow, it's ugly full of dirt and trash but still there.  Contest open until 7-15 to guess date of final melt.  Don't know if they have prizes for correct guess...maybe they'll plow your street first next winter.  Joked after all that snow that we'd have snow on the 4th of July, who knew I'd be right??

Hope everyone has a great 4th, safe travels to all on the roads.

See Mary Alice, we told you to wash the truck. LOL. Hope the rain does it's job and doesn't overdo it now. 

Got the guest room ready and swept the floors; cleaned the bathroom and the litter boxes. Now I need  a rest period.

We have a beautiful day here today and supposed to be great for tomorrow, too. We've had a whole week without rain. That's a good thing.

I think I'll need to pick green beans today. Wonder if those darn teeny- cchinis have grown any yet. Very odd that they are staying small. Maybe I planted dwarf seeds. ( Don't think so)

I should pick some flowers, too. I have the prettiest little lily type flower blooming this year. I planted seeds a few years ago and this is the first time they have grown big enough to bloom. The wild Queen Anne's Lace is gorgeous this year, too. I love them.

Take care all and enjoy the weekend.

I'm glad you are getting new windows, Barbara. I love mine, they work so much better than the old nasty windows.

Yeah, Mary Alice got rain! We got a big storm last night, it poured! Some areas got about 5".

Howdy, Kim, it's good to see you back! We have missed you. What does luck stand for? Is it 'This quilt needs luck to get finished'?

I hope I can find some time to play today. I have to do some cleaning and shopping first. I better get hopppin'.

Ranchmom, that is frightening.  Hope you are feeling much better this morning.

Love the LL quilt!  The colors are beautiful!

Good Morning.  Yes, as KIM says it is a beautiful day here in the Northeast.  I plan to get binding on a couple of quilts today and then start getting ready to go away next week.  We will be at a blue grass festival.  I take various hand work projects with me and get quite a lot done generally, sitting out in the audience, enjoying the great music.

Mary Alice, glad to hear you got some rain......... 

Thanks for all the nice comments on my LL.   I am so relieved that it is quilted.

Good morning MaryAgnus,

Yes that's code for ufo

Apparently my spell check does not like ufo and keeps changing it.

Yes, it's quiet in the city because everyone is out here on the island.

Not very quiet here for the next two months.

Good Morning, Gifties.  Beautiful here this a.m.  and nice and quiet.  Summer holidays are great days to be in the city because so many natives leave for adventures elsewhere.

Luck's, Kim?  Is that another name for UFO's and WIP's and PHD's?

That'll learn you to wash the trucks more often, Mary Alice.

I'll be on the road most of tomorrow, Anne, assuming the LQS's on the way are open.  Otherwise my Row by Row hunt will wait a day or two.

Good morning,

Have not been here in awhile, but it's good to read up on what everyone is doing.

Beautiful day here in the northeast today.

I'm going to order the book later today and try to get some of the projects done this year. But with the holiday upon us, it will take a little longer to arrive. Good thing I have plenty of luck's hanging around to pull out.

I hope you all have a wonderful July 4th and those under the weather are feeling better real soon.

Wow, it rained most of the night! Got a really good rainfall, and I don't think we need to irrigate today! I can hear the frogs croaking, and I'm enjoying that sound! Still raining!

Back to enjoying the rain!
