Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

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.

Oh Thel, poor you!  Wheelchair should be covered under Medicare part B (DME-durable medical equipment)  if your Dr writes a prescription that says it's a medical necessity.  Usually pay 80% after deductible. If you have a Medicare Advantage insurance or a commercial insurance you'll have to call the number on the back of your insurance card to see what they'll pay.  Would still need prescription from Dr.  I'd get prescription before I just rented on my own.  Hopefully the cast is all you need and you have a speedy recovery.

Froggie- wasn't there a song  "my futures so bright I have to wear shades"?? or something along that line.

You have pretty balls there Froggie . . . I mean mug mats, the mug mats are pretty, the beach balls on the mug mats, those are pretty . . . oy!

Froggie, love the mug rugs. Perfect for summer and that glass of iced tea or lemon aide. Good job. Sure hope you can get your glasses fixed today. I wouldn't be able to function without mine!

Just teasing you, Kathleen. The first project is always the hardest one to wait for. But so worth the wait.

Will order my book today (along with a couple other things) so will be playing a game of catch up. Can't wait to see what everyone makes. You all will be my inspiration to get to stitching.

Thel, you will have a hand project to work on. See, it was picked with you in mind. Take care by friend.

Here's our first project:

Handmade Ornament 02

This is by our own Sue! Although she moved back to Australia, we still keep in contact and she created a Star Christmas ornament! Here's a bit of what she has to say about it on Notions here...

The holidays always conjure images of snowflakes, ice crystals, and of course twinkling stars. This sweet ornament is my impression of a combination of all of these good things.

Good morning Gifties! Hope you all had a wonderful 4th! Very hot here again. I'll have the project up here in a bit.

Oh no, broken bones and broken glasses!  Gotta go see the project -- even though I haven't ordered the book yet.

Different mug? Wow, you are giraffe crazy like me! I know, I saw Thel's post on littles. I did binding on some mug mats yesterday. Cut it and everything. I think it looks good, but it's hard to tell with sunglasses on. This is very strange.

Froggie, this is a different mug.  And how are you going to sew in sunglasses? But Thel has you beat; go read the Littles page and see.

Cindy, I know I need to be patient. I just happen to be up way early this morning and needed my coffee :)

So cute, Thel! She looks like she likes her stroller.

I bet you had a good time, Beth, listening to music and doing handwork. And having someone to drive you around.

You didn't tell us there is a giraffe inside the cup, too, Kathleen! My MIL used to have a mug with a frog in the bottom. No frog on the outside, it looked like a plain mug, I think. I don't know what happened to the mug. I hope my SIL has it.

Where's Mari? Probably hiding from the crazy mob.

We have two problems I have to take care of today. A few days ago, something happened to one of Chocolate's do claws Dew? Doo? Anyway, the boys have it wrapped up and Chocolate keeps taking it off and licking the sore. And my glasses broke yesterday. I put them on a table because they got wet, and DGS1 dropped something in the trash that popped out and hit my glasses. I am wearing my sunglasses. Inside. And they aren't the right prescription anymore. They work fine when I am driving or not reading anything. I hope they can get fixed today.

Waiting, waiting....
