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!

What an adorable quilt, Mary Alice! Makes me wish my niece was having a girl but, they're positive it's a boy.

Got two sets of pillowcases made today! AND fixed chicken & dumplings for dinner at DH's request.

Forgot to say that the fabric organization shelf system is a good idea!

I love that Nursery Rhyme quilt. What a wonderful gift.

The orange sherbet dish sounds yummy. Mark is making baked salmon and baked potatoes for our supper. We could use your orange dessert for a nice end to the meal.

Froggie, your HST pillow is going to be neat.

I need to organize my fabric some more. I seem to organize and then sew one project and it is a mess again. I am on a visit to a friend's for a few days. I am ready to go home and sew something...finish some UFOs and some gifts. Guess I need to get Thanksgiving dinner out of the way first. That is approaching quickly!

That's it, MaryAgnes, I am in hippie phase.

Adhesive tape? That made me cringe, Mary Alice. The Nursery Rhyme quilt turned out gorgeous! That baby will love it. And I would like the orange sherbert mandarin oranges dessert too. Yum. I know, it's sherbet. But we always called it sherbert. Oh no, you would cry if there really was a big brown stain on the quilt before you mailed it out!

I have been working on sewing the HST's together, and I keep getting distracted. Lots of points to match. I should get busy doing something.

No clue why the picture looks like it's got a brownish stain of some sort.  It's not on the quilt.  Maybe it's an old cartridge in the camera.

I made the backing out of left over layer cake squares, and I used the left over jelly roll strips for a scrappy binding. Turned out cute!  Now to part with it and mail it out.

Oh Debra, that orange sherbert mandarin oranges dessert sounds yummy!

I hadn't thought of those scarfs in a long time.  Those would be cute to make.  

Well I FINALLY finished my Nursery Rhyme quilt! Woohoo!!  Here's the front and pieced backing pictures

Marilyn, those scarfs are sewn on wash away stabilizer. When everything is sewn together you put it in water to wash away. You sew lengthwise and crosswise. You use two layers. You can use yarn or fabric scraps. They are so pretty.

Here's a question for all you crafty gals...........Have any of you seen scarves that look knitted, but are actually sewn? Looks like the feathery/loopy kind of yarn and looks like lengths of yarn are cut, laid side by side and then sewn crosswise at intervals.  I saw several at the craft show this a.m., but I didn't have the spare $20 to buy one. They were beautiful!

Mary Alice, I was given a Nursery Rhyme embroidery pattern. It's an AG design. I was also given quite a few of her other designs. I can't wait to get my embroidery machine fixed. Yeah for me.

I'm working on some mug rugs and some towel hangers.

One of the ladies I went with yesterday bought some fabric that looked like towel fabric. She bough the end of the bolt for 75% off. When we got back she cut off 2 yards and gave me the rest. It has some spots on it but I'll cover that with embroidery. I purchased a Thangles pattern with 6 table runners and 2.5 inch Thangles for $3.50. Score! I love Thangles.

I need to get off and fix something for Thanksgiving at church tonight. I am fixing something for the people who are on a diet or can't have sweets. Seems like no one thinks about them. It's called a salad that tastes like orange sherbert and has mandarin oranges in it. Yummy.

May all your ups and downs be in stitches.
