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.

Oh Anne, hot chocolate and coffee together? And a movie? I'm not sure if I'd be able to stay awake! The hot chocolate might put me to sleep but the coffee might keep me awake! Sounds delicious anyway :)

That sounds like a nice afternoon, Anne! Chicken! I bet it took less time than our biscuits and gravy. DGS2 wanted hash browns, so he made them! He grated the potatoes and cooked them. Yum.

Oh of course the men showed up for the food, Debra! Especially the old men like Daddy was! He was old and falling apart since I was little. I sure do miss that old thing!

It sounds like you had a great time at Mystic, Barbara! Good for you. No aquarium. That's ok, you had a great time. And I did find the table. I am sorry, I don't mean to give my cleaning bug to everyone else. I did work on my pumpkin wall hanging some before cooking so much biscuits and bacon!

And yes, Missy & Chocolate get along great. Missy is in charge.

Hi all.
Mary Agnes, Mystic was great. It is a historic village based on the New England seaport with tall ships and the shops that would have been at port. I saw the aquarium but we paid the big bucks to wander around the village instead. We (as in DS and I) walked over to the Thomas Oyster Co.Restaurant for lunch and had some oyster appetizers and a fantastic roasted beet /seared scallop salad.
Hope you gals don't overdo it.My knee is killing me but should be better after a good night's sleep.
I love that Missy & Chocolate like each other. Hope you find your dining room table Froggie. If you keep talking about your cleaning bug, I might have to get busy and clean again.
Take care All.

I have a Husqvarna Huskystar which I had before I got my Janome.  I didn't trade it in because there was nothing wrong with it and it is a workhorse on denim and heavy fabrics.  Dealer told me they were originally intended for home ec classes because they are pretty well indestructible!  I use it instead of my good machine when I'm doing tough thick stuff.

Froggie, the men showed in time to eat. We had a few men there early but none were spring chickens or were worse off that me. The younger ones were there at the end, so I graciously let them take it down, roll them up and load them in the trailer. I thought that was the least that I could do to help them digest all the food.

Anne, I will ask my friend how much and how when  see her tonight at Bible Study.

I am working on a scrap quilt. Some pieces were already cut out actually a lot were cut out. I didn't have a pattern but had one in my mind. That is a problem sometimes. lol  I have almost 3 rows done. I will post pics when I get a bit more done.

May all your ups and downs be in stitches.

Checking in again!  

I had heard Vanilla extract straight up is nastier than that apple cider vinegar.  BLAH!  My sister in law told me to get an over the counter potassium supplement.  She's taking it for her leg cramps, and it's worked.  She'll text me later with the amount she takes.

Weather is also over cast here, and I love it!  Actually makes me feel more like taking a nap, or reading a good book. 

Anne, oven baked chicken and potatoes sounds like the ticket!

I want to go finish this Bionic Gear Bag, and I'm praying this machine can sew over these THICK seams.  I think I need a good heavy duty machine to make this bag.  When something is too thick to go through,  these fancy machines always stop and give an error message. Any ideas on a good sturdy long lasting heavy duty machine?

Hello. It's Sunday afternoon. And I've cooked chicken and potato in the oven..house smells glorious. .cut out my Christmas stocking..ready to stitch it tonight. And sitting on the porch having a cuppa right now and checking you all out
The weather is a bit over cast. And cool..now to go in and see how much more trouble I can get into...quiet here today..and DH keeps trying to avoid me...what I should do is go directly into my sewing room..let's see what's in store for the rest of the day...bbl..Anne have a good one everyone.

I haven't heard of taking vanilla extract for leg cramps either, but I have heard it tastes nasty straight up.

I keep finding myself sitting on the couch today. I uploaded a couple of pics to my ancestry account.

Another project tomorrow? I am still trying to make the wall hanging from a couple of weeks ago! I am so behind. That's ok, I will have a full tote soon. I should go through it and see what I have.

I think I will get back to the dining room cleaning, or maybe piecing the wall hanging.
