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. 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.

Barbara--There is no question in my mind that we get smarter as we grow older. It's called experience. Also with it I have learned to accept that which I can't change and make the best of the situation. 

I will not try to understand this weird and wonderful world of computers and cyberspace. After two weeks or more my screen would never go off unless there was no power to the computer. Out of the blue about 30 minutes ago it is all functioning the way it should.

Very interesting pattern, Agnes. Thanks for sharing your journey to acceptance of a new schedule. I think we are getting wiser as we get older and learn to accept things more. 

Cindy that's happened to most of us I think. Well, Thel seems to get double and even triple comments so maybe she has a comment grabber floating around. I saw that there was some tomfoolery going on with the cyberworld yesterday, too. 

Wow, Patte, that's a lot of beautiful fabric. Love that room, too with that big window.

Poor Little Luke. I know he'll be a happy little guy with a new family, though. Can't imagine what he's already had to endure.

Agnes, your table toppers are beautiful.

Those AG events are sure a lot of fun, aren't they? Hard not to spend $$ on all the beautiful designs. Enjoy day 2.

I do the same thing Ranchmom. I'm tempted to hand write my thoughts before I start typing.

Great pattern Agnes. Her quilting is wonderful. It's a great site to visit without free patterns.

Don't you just hate when that happens, Cindy?

I'm glad to hear you've gotten out of the house, Kathleen. You, too, Rita.

Hey, Mary Alice!

ranchmom, I hope you're done with the Dr because you've feeling well and not just fed up with the medical profession.

That's amazing, Rita, it's a lot of volunteering. Good for you. And your problems may not be as big as Patte's, but I think our problem is our problem to deal with, no matter how big or small. BIg quilty hugs for you and Patte both. 

Your projects are gorgeous, Agnes. It's great that you can figure out how to adjust so well. That's a tough thing to do. 

That is some gorgeous sorting, Patte! I bet it makes you happy to see the results. That is a nice big window, is that her quilting room? It's gorgeous. 

I had a great day yesterday at the AG event, it was a lot of fun. I sure was tired. We had dinner at a mexican place, and a nice frozen strawberry margarita. Yum. Now it's time to go again.

Good Morning from chilly rainy NYC. 

Good Grief, Patte. Maybe your niece could open a fabric shop.

I think you're my new role model, Agnes. I wish I could do something when I'm watching TV but for some reason when a tv is on it gets my attention, more so now that I rely on closed captioning.

Sweet little Luke. A pox on his abuser.

Good Saturday morning.   I usually work every weekend , have for years but decided to start just doing 3 out of 4.  Seems weird to be sitting drinking coffee when I should be getting ready to go out the door in 15 minutes.

I think our hobbies, whatever they include, keep us grounded. Years ago someone said "why waste time worrying about something you can't change?"  Sounds so simple but so true, I think the problems come when we think we can change the outcome.  

Heavy rain last night and Tstorms,  we really need the rain.  Hopefully a little more today.

Poor little Luke.  Good that someone found him and got him the help he needs.  Bogs the mind to think someone would be so cruel.

This is a picture my sister sent from my niece's house.  The caption was:5 bins sorted 15 to go.  My sister responded with: 10 more waiting at Patte's, did you get a trailer and hitch?

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario 11 hours ago

Rita--I give myself passes as well but when nothing changes I have learned to ask myself, "Why? What can I change? What might act as a motivator?" I also learned long ago that I have to be productive or I become negative all around. DH had the answer. I learned I needed an attitude adjustment when DH would make a comment about my mother must have visited, even after she passed away. She is the most negative person I have ever encountered and I have to work at not following in her footsteps. I firmly believe that my hobbies are my Sanity Savers. I shared that phrase with the nurse at the Nursing Home the other day when I stopped in to inquire about the possibility of donating quilts to them. They have become my charity of choice. I hope I never need to live there but I am so thankful that the facility exists for those that need it.

My book and bed are calling me.
