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.

It is more fun as a rebel isn't it, Mary Alice? I decided I should cheer for the Bronco's because Mustang's mascot is the Bronco's and UCO's is the Bronchos. 

Puppy bowl is tomorrow, too. I have that set up to record. It's always very good, better than the Super bowl. 

I need to get something done. Food is bought and put up for the week. I need to head to the quilting room to play for a while.

Snow didn't last  very long.  We've now got sun and a gorgeous blue sky.

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

No snow here!  Thank God!  Hate that stuff!  Looks pretty in pictures though.

Well still no sewing yet.  Thinking I should just clean and rearrange everything so it's more efficient.

My family is rooting for Bronco's so of course I have to be the rebel--Go Panthers!  Life is more fun as a rebel.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

No rain, Mari? That's just not right. Maybe the sun will sneak out later. 

Yuck, no snow here, Mary. Be careful. I like watching the commercials and halftime, but you are right, halftime is not very good lately. 

Looks like I got distracted with the ME. It kept messing up on me. I think I straightened it out, and then had lunch. Now I need to bind them, take a pic, and send them to DD1.

Comment by Mary/ Tewksbury MA yesterday

Having some well deserved hot chocolate!  Shift #1 was about 5" heavy wet snow, took me 90 minutes to clear back steps and driveway.  Rest period now, figure I'll go back out after 3pm to tackle whenever else comes down.

My next door neighbor called to me from his window said I was making him look back, his wife was complaining that a 60 year old woman was shoveling snow and he was sitting playing games!  Had to break the news to him that I'm 64, so for a 51 year old she's right he's pretty pathetic!  Course, don't understand why the wife can't shovel either??

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario on Friday

Thanks, Froggie. I like the change with the button but as my button supply is not huge I will make most with Velcro.

Comment by Mary/ Tewksbury MA on Friday

Snowing in Boston area, heavy wet type.  Suppose to get 4-8" so I'll have to shovel in shifts.  Heavy stuff wears me out.

Looking forward to Sunday's game.  Cam vs Peyton, should be interesting.  I love football, always watch the home team- I make my work schedule around Patriots schedule.   Even though Patriots aren't there this year should be good. Wrapping up of the season, lots of hard work put into this since August.  Ads are usually cute but halftime show is a waste- halftime is when you eat!

Good morning! It's a quiet semi-dry day here in the PNW. Still dark though. BBL...

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) on Friday

I will let someone else do the slaughtering. Yuck, I don't like that blood stuff. I am glad there are people that can deal with these things. 

I forgot to say over on Itty's, Agnes, those snap bags are really cute with the big button and hair tie. 

I bet those hands are full of calluses, Mary Alice. Rope making, horse riding, cow chores... 

I need to get busy today, the house is a mess, and I need to get a package to DD1 for Valentine's Day. And who knows what else, but I really need to get to that binding.

Mary Agnes, you could'of left the slaughtering cow out, LOL!

Ranchmom, that's really cool. I've heart of riata before but didn't tie the two together.

Agnes, very clever idea that ponytail tie!
