Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

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 18th - December 19th, 2016 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.

Prayers sent for those receiving chemo and radiation.  Oh my, got to see just a small dose of radiation on my aunt and it's amazing how much that stuff burns you!  My heart went out to her as she was in pain and discomfort for so long.  She's just now getting a bit better, but she states she gets tired easily and doesn't  tolerate the heat much anymore.

I took a day off from cleaning yesterday.  Headed into East El Paso and went shopping and out to eat a late lunch.  I had a great time!!!  Today it's back to cleaning.  One of my cousin's came for all my scrap books stuff, we loaded up her SUV to the hilt with Cricut machines, scrapbook paper, Cricut cartridges, etc.   Then another cousin stopped by for my stained glass stuff, and I talked her hubby into finishing up my last piece for me.  I had put together a Navajo Wedding vase, but it needed the frame.  So he stated he'd put a frame for it and black patina for me.  Awesome!  And my friend Cathy texted me to tell me she'd be here this afternoon to pick up the filing cabinet I'm giving her.  Woohoo!  Lots of stuff gone.  More to go.

Thank you Barbara.  They are beautiful.  I don't have ME abilities but I could hand embroider or applique one of those designs.  They are beautiful.  Was kinda wondering if someone might be able to ME one for me but truly have no idea what's involved with it so may be way too much to ask.

Thel, I'm not sure if you were asking if someone could stitch out an Angel for you or if you wanted the design ideas. The above site has many angel designs.

Back from my visit with Marilyn. What a sweet lady she is. Met her friend, Sandy, too. We had fun browsing the quilt shop and then went for Chinese. Yum Chen's was the name of the restaurant so we had 'yummy' food. There was a group of State patrolmen eating there and someone at another table paid for their meals. Wasn't that great? I was walking out when they were and was able to say thank'you to them.

Now I'm ready for my afternoon snooze but I'm fighting it off with coffee.

Anne and Greg are my heroes, too.

Got it Kathleen,  thank you. 

And here is a bright spot in my day.  Butter Cup wants to play.

Thel; god bless you for such a sweet gesture!  I'm sure it's not an easy thing.

Linda,  I will share my hero with you....my mom lives and fights one day at a time and we can certainly add Greg to that list.  True heros they are!

Mary Agnes....please let us know your next trip....I'll put Anne in my car and we will meet you up in ME.  Would love to meet you face to face; mom so enjoyed that last year!!

Please stay strong and healthy ladies through all this hot weather!

Hey,  speaking of ME.........my brain is working on designing a memory wall hanging for baby Cadynce.  I want to incorporate a baby angel (kinda like a cupid).  Does anyone with ME abilities have anything like that?

Not as well as you are, Cora. What a gorgeous waterfall. I bet it was nice and cool there. 

I love the disappearing four patch, Anne. There are so many ways to lay it out after you cut. 

That chemo sounds tough, I think Anne and Greg are my heros right now, too. 

I wouldn't send you a storm, Lou Ann. It sure was nasty last night. I hate trying to sleep with no fan on. I bet your foot does hurt. 

I finished the ME for the snowman blocks this morning, then did the ME for the November itty bitty's. I'm rolling right along today. I think I need a swim soon.

Hi Ladies,

Welcome back Mary Agnes. I bet it is sweltering in the city today. It is pretty oppressive here today.

Beautiful waterfalls Cora. Wish I was sitting under them today.

Hope everyone is feeling better and taking it easy in the heat.

Good morning everyone.  Thank you for all the kind words.  My goodness what a long stream of difficult pregnancies.  The times sure have changed with how everyone deals with things now. 

I hope that everyone deals with their medical appointments and healing well.  I continue prayers for everyone.  

I have got to get my act together a little bit today.  I have been in a slump and just can't seem to get out of it.   Maybe today will be the day that a spark will get lit under me.  

I just love that waterfall Cora.  It does evoke a feeling of serenity.  I bet it sounded wonderful too.  Thanks for that beautiful addition to our day.
