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. 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.

Love Santa and the fact that all of you are getting so much done.  I'm close - a wall hanging to quilt and lots of baking to do but the shopping and wrapping is all done.

Barbara,love your Joy Boy,so cute.Went for the stress test but the doc wouldn't do it because of my foot,thought I couldn't stay on it long enough.So now I have to go do that in 6 mo.

  Did get a new microwave tho.Got a call to see if I would keep the 4 year old gd overnite along with my 8 year old gd so nothing else will get done but I enjoy them and it will be fun.

Good idea Lynne!  I just happen to have a shirt to embroider for her!  Wonder if I can get a Maxine picture to go with it?  I have Maxine CD's some where here.

I must have missed that project Barbara.  I think it's way too cute!

Mary Alice, you need to embroider a tee shirt for your Mom.  I made mine one about 8 years ago that says "Old age is no place for sissies"  Her friends in Florida wanted to know where they could get one.  She said it was a one of a kind designer shirt made by her daughter.  Gotta love those old ladies sometimes!

Barbara, I have the snow people one from PJ's, but have yet to make them.  I started on it once, but didn't get very far.  Right now I'm making zippered bags for the GKs and the women in the family.  I'm on #3 and only have 5 more to go. 

Mary Agnes, enjoy Florida.  I'd love to be there right now, but I'm going to have to wait until this spring I think.

Love your ME Santa, Barbara!

He is darling, Barbara! He has a good face.

Canada has more time than the USA does. I just decided that. And you know you better not disappear again, Diane, you know what happens! Oh we had so much fun finding you, though.

Oh Mary Alice! I know that look. And getting old sucks! Is that mom's diagnosis? "Hi, I am Mom, and I have Getting Old Sucks".

I like your red, but would like the blue too, Barbara! Mom had me cross stitch Santa's over the years, my favorite was Prohibition Santa, and some of them had blue suits. But not brown/black. Sis would love it too, she collects 'Joy'. It's her youngest kid's middle name.

I feel like I didn't get much done today, but was busy all day! And got a good haircut. Maybe tomorrow I will figure out what we are eating on Christmas. Already have the meat figured out.

Thanks everyone. This is a machine embroidery in the hoop project that requires at least a 6X10 hoop. It's from Anita Goodesign (PJ's In the Hoop series) Called 'Joy Boy'.The design pack shows a blue version and a Victorian black/brown version. I liked the more traditional red fabrics.

Oh Barbara, I think I am in love -- with your Santa that is. He is adorable. Where did you get the pattern?

Hey there Diane. Sounds like you're busy as usual. I am sewing the binding down on my last quilt for Christmas. Turned out so cute.

Mary Alice, you go girl. Sounds like you had some good food. yummy, you're making me hungry.
