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.

Stella Marie is gonna be one very lucky baby Barbara.  That is just gorgeous.  I love the colors !   A friend has told me she'd like an elephant quilt for an upcoming baby.  Now I see this it sure does make me wanna suggest we move forward with it. 

The vet never got back to me today, but the nurse did say it was a surgery day and he was very busy.  My dilemma now is my little man has digressed.  He had a seizure earlier which seems to be affecting his total mobility. He isn't even trying to move around now and it doesn't seem that he's able to hold his head up either.  He was crying for food a while ago, but I had to move him and support his head for him to be able to eat.  I think I'm gonna need to take him to the docs and help him cross the rainbow bridge so he can run and play again.  The blessing is that he has no pain.

Thanks for the nice comments on my curtains. Oh, I love my table, too. LOL

Here's the baby quilt so far. The ears aren't sewn on yet and I need to quilt the borders. Since her color choice is gray/pink and she wants to have elephants in the theme, this pattern was perfect.

Love those curtains Barbara, especially how you have hung them loosely like that. I can imagine them billowing nicely in a breeze.  Very pretty.  And that puzzle is a good one! I love to do jigsaw puzzles. I continue to be envious of your table now that I can see even more of it. It too is a beauty!

Forgot to say how beautiful the angel is Debra.  What a great find you got and then be able to turn them into income.  That's really great!!

Pillow top sandwich is made.  Now to decide what thread to use for the topstitching.

Very pretty Angel Debra. Glad you are going to be busy making them. I hope you are getting good things in return.  

It is a very pretty spot but I haven't actually used the soaker tub for a long time. I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to get out of it with these stupid knees.

LOVE those curtains Barbara.  It looks like a very relaxing place to soak in that tub.  Looks like kitty loves the room too.  And that map.  That is very impressive.  I've never seen that done before.

I started making progress on my pillow top and then had a surprise visit from a friend to deliver my mail.  We spent a very relaxing 1/2 hour outside chatting and enjoying the bird songs.  I'm regrouping from walking and then I'll get back to it.

Good Evening.

No quilting for a while. I have orders for angels. The kind that go on tree tops at Christmas. I got a bunch of head, hands, and wings at the second hand store. Played around with them and showed them to a friend. She wants some. I also made some towel hangers and now have orders for some. I will tweek the angels some. Here is the prototype.

That puzzle is awesome!  My aunt would love that one!  Snazzy curtains for the loo!  Makes it very romantic with the little swaggy effect!
