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.

Oh I did it again, Diane, great candle mat. You have some great wools.

Lou Ann, too late, I didn't see your post.

Very cute, Carol! I love them both.

I think everyone was hiding today, or maybe getting furniture moved, or learning how to machine embroider! Mr. Bullfrog wants to go to sleep, so I better get outta here.

Yup, without all that rain, the PNW would be brown and dead, Mari! Yup, sis and two of her kids came over, and we got everything moved that we needed to! Then we went to lunch at Freddy's Frozen Custard, yum. Now for DGS1 to clean up and move some more stuff. And after sis left, I went through my fabric totes. Did you know that when you fold fabric nicely, it takes up about half as much space??? It's true. And I found a bunch of projects that would be very quick. So, I laid them out. Let's see where they are in a month!

Finished a couple projects today - not official gifty ones -- an autumn wall hanging and a "snowman snowflake" appliqued pillow

I was sewing! I think I took more breaks though. Only got one Humbug bag done.

Hasn't rained as much as I'd hoped. May have to irrigate come Sunday.

Anne, that sounds like so much fun! Take a picture for us. I'd love to see the quilt your DGD designed!

Goodness where are you all today?

Good Morning!  It's sprinkling!  YAY!  I don't have to irrigate this weekend.  We are expecting sprinkles all day long now and then.  No thunder, so I can sew!

Diane/Canada, scared of an EM!  I don't believe it! It's time to get it going!  It makes life so much easier!  It's time to take the challenge and face that EM and tell it who's boss!  Come on now, take that bull by the horns and get it going!

By the way Diane, I LOVE your version of the table topper with wool!  So adorable!  And not dealing with those pie shaped pieces is much better.

Lou Ann, that's great that you had the "mowers" take that stuff away for you.  The digitized version of the leaves only does one leaf at a time.  I guess if you have a BIG hoop you can do 2, but remember, you have to allow for each room for each pie piece cut on the background.  I only did one per hooping.

Good Friday morning kids. That's ok .. Diane and Anne are the best of friends. . No fear there... reading in between the lines... Diane is a go getter. .and will accomplish anything that she puts here mind to. All Mama Anne was saying was : "Go Girl". Good luck sewing my friend.

Morning all! Yesterday about did me in, but I had a nice surprise when I got home. I was going to bag up the 8 - 10" of limbs & leaves that I have been gathering out of my yard and putting around the tree. My mowers took them away for me!!! We have a place that we can take them and if they are in the paper sacks, you don't have to empty (plastic you empty and take home). The cut them all up and people get free mulch when they want it. However, I don't have to do it now - yeah!!!

It is staying at 65 - 70 at night, so I haven't opened the windows. No breezes to bring it in and it is humid. Next week it is to be cooler at night.

Love all of the things that have been done, and I sure hope the Diane Gunter/ Canada will now listen to Anne and give it a try. The first one has all of the questions answered and it is fun, fun, fun for all of the rest! Go Diane Go!!!

Froggie, I love Barbara's suggestion.

Mary Agnes, how many leaves at a time does the digitized one make? I have a bunch of leaf patterns, but if they all stitch out in that circle I would get one. I wouldn't have to spend as much time figuring out how far apart, etc. And I love that contrasting top, Froggie. Great addition!
