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.

Try googling it, Debra.  There are several tutes on line.  I haven't checked YouTube but I bet you could find a video.

Geez!  I need to go get a machine where you got that deal Anne!  I'd love a BabyLock, but we have no dealers here.  Closest one is about 1.5 hour drive away in T or C, NM close to Elephant Butte Lake.

Best go get some sewing in!  It's drizzly rainy, gloomy day.  Perfect for sewing.

Thank you Mary Alice. I'll try that on my next order.

Good to hear you got out for a puppy stroll Thel.  Little by little.

And just when was Amy going to tell us about her new machine?  I sure hope you got one for a penny for yourself, Anne.  Oh, and tell Mike I think he's a keeper and in no way an enabler. 

Froggie (and others), I am trying very hard to get RbyR stuff into the mail. I HATE going to the P.O. so I'm procrastinating about sorting through a big pile of papers, and other stuff from both of my trips.  So, when I get the stuff to you, Froggie, should I add a NYC tee shirt or two?  Maybe you could  trade shirts with DGS2? If so, any particular colors? messages? college or tourist attraction?  And, of course, what size?

Sounds like an awesome trip Anne....Really, buy one sewing machine and a second for a penny.  Amazing. 

Well, I decided to be courageous this morning and take a walk with Buzz. Decided to leave Moose inside so there wasn't too much excitement. It's MY first walk out of the front yard, which also means Buzz's first, since July 6th. He has put on a little weight and needs more exercise. Once I see how I feel in a while, I'll decide if we can do it more often. It was only a short walk down the block and back with my cane, which I was thankful I took. I'd do a happy dance that I'm safely back inside if I wasn't too tired to dance.

My hubby and I used to love being at the coast during a storm.  The power of the Lord is just wonderful to enjoy.

They had to seal up the doors at Mardens in Maine.
All the fabrics have been sold out...Amy, Anne, Mike, and MaryAgnes were here!!!!
All teasing aside, my friends... but I think between Mother and daughter, we had to have dropped at least $500.00. We ended up going to Lewiston, and one Moe on the way home. We had such a good time. Stopped at a quilt shop and at a penny sale, ..buy 1 sewing machine and get a second one for a penny, I bought Amy a Baby lock embroidery machine.
Yesterday, Mike drove me down to Cape Cod..to see the churning Watters in the ocean..and of course had to stop at Tumbleweed quilt shop for zippers for Amy. And a few more fat quarters. Busy hands here in Franklin town. Anne

The pillows really are fun and easy.  These two t-shirts I was given to recreate for Justyn are also sentimental to him cause his mama gave them to him.  Mom & Dad are having a very long stay as guests of the state for major drug issues.  My friend has gotten guardianship of her grandson. 

Well,  I was just about to get up and get something done when Buzz decided he needs some cuddles.  Guess I'll be sitting for a while longer.  He's such a good snuggler.

Yum, steak and tater salad. I like my tater   salad fresh and warm, not cold. But it does sound good. And sitting on the deck sounds relaxing, better than any TV show.

Maybe I should offer to turn a couple of DGS2's t shirts into pillows. His brother wore them, and he has worn them for over 2 years. These shirts look horrible! He still wears them to school. Yuck. I think he is attached because they remind him of his momma. I will ask him.

I love the flower ornaments, they are sew cute!

Yeah, how was Marden's? I bet they bought all the fabric. No more fabric at any Marden's.

My body hurts today, after two days of working in the room cleaning it out. I am going to rest today and play in the quilting room and see what I can get into. I really want to make some pillows, and get busy on September's little quilt. I will get October's tomorrow! I need more time in my retirement days.
