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.

Look at those happy faces !!!  Now to put names with faces?

I've really been craving a bit fat overstuffed grinder/sub (everyone seems to have different names for them) from the Casey's uptown for days.  Well,  a friend stopped by to see if I needed anything cause she was going uptown,  so I went with her and got to order my own.  Got a big italian with about 5 different meats and TONS of veggies.  I decided on 12" without any dressings so it won't get soggy til I can get to it all.  I'll dress it as I enjoy it.  I decided while I was out to get something sweet.  Got a bag of Little Debbie mini donuts, chocolate/chocolate covered.  EMMM those will be good with coffee in the morning. 

It is HOT out, summer came back.

Thanks, Dr. Mary Alice, I think I will go to acute care after dinner. They are open until 8. It's feeling nasty right now, and I could just fall over and sleep. Or is that because I barely got five hours of sleep last night?

Belly band? Boy band? What? That dog just doesn't look happy at all. He thinks someone has spoiled his fun. Oh I wish someone would have put a band on that stupid skunk last night, it had a great aim and got Chocolate in the legs. Yuck, what a mess.  I think the smell is cleared up pretty good right now. I need to get the carpet clean, online it said to spray vinegar on the carpet then vacuum. I may have to call Stanley Steemer. It's about time for him anyway, but I have to figure out the schedule before adding something in. I think I will go check in online for the acute care, and show up at 7, after dinner. Now, what to cook.

I hope things work out well with the move in.  I have a different take on a lot of "finding a new woman" thing that is a bit contradictory to what a lot of people thing.   But to me,  it's not the other woman to blame as much as it is the married man playing around.  If he wasn't out looking another woman would not have gotten involved with him.  And good chance she had no idea he was married with kids.  A hard situation,  but the cheating man is the one to blame for cheating,  not the other woman.    I'll get off that soapbox.............

The belly bands are great for incontinent/untrained/spraying males.  Get that tool tucked away comfortably.  It's not for the #2 business like a diaper.  I made one for a foster who wanted to spray and it worked great but needed fine tuning.  It's been such a busy day that I haven't gotten to that project yet. 

How can I be a home body and still have time slip by?  Phone calls/unexpected visitors/ebay sales..............it needs to stop so I can settle into doing NOTHING. 

I get tired just thinking about all that yard work Mary Alice.  Where do you get all that energy?

Mary Alice, that grass may be greener but it still needs to be mowed.

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza 3 hours ago

Debra, that's sad, but I think ALL males go through that cycle.   They always think the grass looks greener on the other side.  MEN!

Not a lazy morning for me.  I was up and outside.  Mowed the lawn, tilled the front by the rose bushes, weed eater outside the fence and the edges of lawn.  The front and side yard look fabulous!  Me?  Not so fabulous!  Oh well, at least it's done.  Now just need the backing yard tilling for the ditches with pecan trees. I'm ready for a nap!

Great project Mari!  Have fun with the girls today!  Can't wait to see pictures!

Thel - Belly bands....what a great idea, my friend's toy poodles need to wear diapers to keep away from the girls....lol 

Debra - those 'girlfriends' or 'boyfriends' that ruin a relationship make things difficult for everyone....the 'girlfriends' make me ashamed that they are female.....women should be above those things.....I hope all works out for your family!
