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.

Froggie, my Mom used to say, "baw, humbug, the golden years..." meaning, the "Golden Years" have nothing to do with "Golden". They are nothing but disappointing. Poor Mom, she was riddled with painful arthritis. Me too but that's not going to stop me from having fun! Wahoo!

Thel, hope all goes well for you and that there are no surprises when the cast comes off.

Barbara, poor Luke. That's a lot for a teen to go through. He's going to grow up fast now.

No bars, Kathleen! Don't even say that, I am not ready for that. 

Waiting for Guard practice to be over and everyone to show up. Hopefully it's soon. 

You know I am always ready for Fall and Halloween fabric to show up. Yum. 

I think I will queue stuff for the car. I'm ready to get moving on down the highway and play and see everyone. Virtually.

Oh Thel, I already looked at the new lines and I want Cottage Chic so bad but I keep telling myself I cannot bring any more fabric in until I can get some of these started quilts to at least advance to a next stage, whatever it may be!

I'm on my way, Froggie.  Don't start without me.

Isn't insane that "porcupines" should still be piled up at almost August? Good Grief. You all have my sympathies.

Happy birthday to DGS1! In my day, turning 18 meant we were old enough to get in the bars downtown! I think it's 21 now?
Barbara, I feel bad for Luke and his negative attitude. A positive attitude is so important to healing but at the same time, with the magnitude of what he's going through it's understandable that he feels so down about it. His mom's prayers will have to do in the meantime.

My heart goes out to Luke, Barbara.  What a devastating shock to a teenager - any age for sure, but the teen years are so "fragile" anyway.  My prayers for him and his family.

Good morning Gifties !! 

Feeling good this morning and so very ready to have this cast off this afternoon and see what my leg really looks like and what I have for scars etc.  I feel like I want to take a Brillo pad to it and scratch away ! 

We haven't gotten an update (or maybe I missed it) on LouAnns little sweetheart and her recovery.  I'm grabbing that virtual quilt of hugs to snuggle everyone dealing with their medical issues and adding prayers with it.

Thanks for the reminder about the Joanns coupon.  It's been so long since I shopped I didn't even think about it.  Oh boy,  I'm gonna have such fun ! 

I didn't dare look at the new catalog.  I've already had my fun shopping there for this month and I am so weak when it comes to fabrics.

Catch you all later.

Froggie are you ready for the flurry of broom landings at the lake? Sure sounds like a fun day. I'll have a cupcake or two. Happy Birthday DGS.

Very handsome camel today, Mari.

According to the FB reports, Luke is doing as well as can be expected. He might get extubated by Fri. He has had grafts done on his chest with his back to be done tomorrow.  He'll need more in the future months. Guess his attitude is pretty negative so his Mom is praying for some peace of mind for him. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Got one row done yesterday. The other confusing one just needs to be trashed . I might figgure out how to make it usable. I want to work on Chicago today.

Froggie aren't you excited about all the Fall/Halloween stuff coming out? I think of you everytime I see a new Halloween fabric. CT sure has some cute ones in the new catalog.

I thought crappola was just crappola. Never knew it was a game.

Can you believe I missed yesterday? I was hopppin' all day. Here I am, and GUESS what day it is???? DGS1's EIGHTEENTH BIRTHDAY. yES IT IS.

I invited everyone on Littles to the lake, come on over and have a sammich and a cupcake with us.

 I wonder what wise woman that was, Amy???? Big quilty hugs and prayers for you and Anne. And everyone else with teeth, bone, blah, blah, blah problems! We all seem to be falling apart. 

I hated my dentist as a child! He was so mean. I love the dentist I have now. He shows me videos of his kids band! And he tells me when it's going to hurt, doesn't lie like the other guy does. 

I better get moving, it's time to get ready for the lake. So much fun! And I found out what was wrong with the tension on my ME. I was using the wrong bobbin thread. Just because thread comes with your new machine and says 'bobbin' on it, doesn't mean you can use it for ME. Who knew? Nobody told me, only use this stuff for sewing! I changed the type of bobbin thread and it works like a dream. Sometimes I want to go back to plain old regular counted cross stitch!
