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.

Gorgeous paper piecing, Kathleen! You crack me up.

Mosquitoes love to eat me alive, too, Mary Alice! I like the deep woods off lotion with SPF 15. It isn't greasy. I hope you get some rain, it's been pouring here all day.

Nice camel, Mari, he is relaxing. It looks like he has a bear rug on his back.

I am ready to go to the shot doc. I get so many shots, I am surprised I don't leak. My knees are killing me, so I hope the shots do the trick.

Morning all!  Karla that's a great looking quilt!  

With the humidity and hopeful upcoming rain this weekend, my whole body aches. Darn crappy bones and bionic hips. Have to watch how I sit because that metal rod that goes into the femur sort of hurts at certain positions.  Feels like a leg cramp coming on.  Perhaps some magnesium would help.

Got some laundry hanging on the lines and was eaten alive by those pesky mosquitos.  Had to come in to put some pants on.  Too hot for pants.   Heading to town tomorrow, I think I'll grab a couple bags of those bug granules for the lawn and that Cutter spray stuff. Anything to get rid of the mosquitos.  Already called Vector Control and they keep telling me they are coming tonight and that tonight never arrives.  Even my aunt has called them because these mosquitos are bad this time of year.

Nice boy quilt Karla! 

I've been busy doing some paper piecing . . . . of course you'll have to take my word for it . . . no camera!!

The turkey was delicious, and I have enough for sammiches today, and sent some home with sis in law for sammiches.

What a cute trash bag, Diane! I am trying to get off the couch so I can start one too.

Nice pic, Karla! And the quilt is gorgeous. Your nephew will love it. Five kitties? Wow. That's a lot of meow mix.

Yes, I did, MaryAgnes, it made him smile. I got one pic of him and the cake, I will post it in a bit. Plus, I need to take a pic of my Halloween village and post it, too.

Oh good, Diane, you get to see Miss T. Give her a hug and kiss from me.

It's rainy here today, it never rains at the end of July! Silly weather. My roses need it, I have needed to water for several days, so God decided to do it for me.

I have to clean out the quilting room, I think I am going to have that company fix the wall. I got the estimate last night, and it seems reasonable to us. All I have to do is clean out the room. There's so much stuff in there! I am surprised it doesn't burst, spewing fabric and thread everywhere.

Hopppy Hump Day, Mari!

Mari I am on a mission this year. I am going to try and make at least one of every project posted. I won't always be the first . On the 12th of August I am going to see my sister in Ontario so I won't be here for the project reveal on the18th. I do not get home until 10 p.m. on the 19th.

Karla what a neat kids quilt you have made.

I also meant to comment on the gift tags a few pages back. I love them!!!

Today I get to see Miss T. I have not seen her since I gave her up last Sept. I am excited and yet a bit apprehensive. We loved her so much. I know it was the right thing to do and she is still with the young couple she went to. They in fact are expecting their first baby in Oct. I went on a little shopping spree yesterday and bought her 10 outfits.Of course I was lucky as it was all on sale now.

It is going to be 32 today . Way to hot for me.

Mari where is our camel?

Good morning All. 

Well guess who got project #4 done first. heehee Very cute, Diane.

Karla that little boys quilt is great. He'll love those bright colors.

Mary Agnes I'm so glad you and the man-dog can get out with friends. Sometimes I miss the city life. (That was a loonngg time ago in my life). Maybe I'll go back to a city someday.

Going over to SIL's later to work on a scrapbook project that she has in mind. I may just opt out on it. She wants to do it all on line and that is not my strength, as you all know. We'll see what happens. She is a planner and organizer type A.

Take care all.

Great house, Barbara, and Kitty is adorable.

Good morning everyone! WELCOME Karla! Hey, great kids quilt! When I first saw it I thought of dice. Oh, a new person! Wahoo!

Sheila, that's a great idea to use Hampton Hues for that project and my car! I'm going to do it!

Barbara! Love your house and especially your kitty pillow! How cute!

Diane, I'm not surprised your were the first to get done with Project 4! And, it's awesomely cute! Love the owls!
