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.

Froggie--Today I want to organize my applique pieces better for the Ittys. Applique is just so not my forte that I am procrastinating on that front. That leads to "messes" on my part.

Doesn't that look a bit painful, the way that camel has his mouth skewed? He does look happy though. 

Yup, that is you, Agnes. I used to be very organized, but it went away sometime. Maybe I will find it hiding in the button box someday. 

I hope the doc figures it out soon, Mary. That's no fun. And you can keep that snow, I don't want any of it. 

Think young. That's a good idea, Anne. I hope you are feeling ok, I miss hearing about all your quilting. 

Hopppy Outlook, good idea, Mari. You and Anne are sew positive! It keeps me inspired and happy. 

I am inspired to work in the quilting room tomorrow. I think I can stay home all day. If I am lucky. I am feeling lucky. hehee.

Mary, you are SO right; getting old is NOT for sissies!!!

Anne, so appreciate every time you post! 

I totally agree, a positive posture provides a happy outlook on everything.

Comment by Anne yesterday
Hi kids. Yes, the winter blahs always gets me into organizing moods.
Better still when DDIL agrees to take charge.
MaryAgnes, as soon as the weather gets warmer, you might decide to take a trip and visit with us, and you can personally ask D.ANNA to organize your area. And you also have a treat to pick up...miss you.
Hey Mary from Tewksbury, Ma....I'm with you when it comes to getting old... i keep telling everyone to stay young. Or at least feel that way.
Hey Kids, All of you..keep up the good works that you do...and remember think young. Love and hugs all around. Anne
Comment by Mary/ Tewksbury MA yesterday

Another 6" of snow Monday but it was light and fluffy, so easy to shovel.  Today it's just a few flurries, not amounting to anything.  Suppose to be like that for the remainder of the week.

Working on bindings today, I sew to front by machine then turn and hand stitch to back.  Don't like look of all machine .  Got 2 of my baby quilts and one twister lap quilt quilted yesterday at the long arm shop.  Next week Ill do #3 baby quilt and another lap.  

Back to Dr for follow up tomorrow.  My heartburn is gone but I still have discomfort/pain in RUQ and sometimes LUQ.  Gallbladder U/S was negative so ? next step.  Dr wanted me to check my blood pressure cause it was high in office, still higher than my norm so we may be playing with those meds too.  This getting old is not for sissies!!  

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario yesterday

Froggie--Yup, I don't need help in the organizing department. I have been the one receiving the phone calls or asked directly, "Where is ????" after doing some organizing for DS's or DH.

Comment by Mari/WA yesterday

Good morning Gifties! You know what day it is?

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

I hope you don't get too much wet stuff today, MaryAgnes. That's a great idea, Anne can send her DDIL to all our houses to help organize and clean up. Except Agnes' house, she stays organized. Good for her. 

I hope to sew a seam or two this morning before I have to go off on my wedding shoe hunt. Yuck, I hate shoes, I hate shopping for them. Made me grumpy the other day. Sis in law is going with me, wish her luck. hehee.

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

Good Morning, Gifties.  Waiting for the precipitation to develop into something.

Good to hear from you, Anne.  Would you ask your DDIL if she does apartments?  Tell her mine is probably smaller than your sewing room, but boy oh boy could I use an organizer.  

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

I dunno, MaryAgnes. Nobody asked me. Mustang Broncos. Red and Black. 

Hi Anne, good to hear from you! Your DDIL is a good one. The closet in my old quilting room has no door. Mr. Bullfrog took them off and made shelves in the closet. When DGS1 took that room over, I told him I still wanted to keep the shelves and use them for my stash. I made room for some of his stuff, plus he got to use two other closets to hang things. I have the same deal with DGS2. That bedroom is the biggest, next to the master. 

Kathleen, she will be calling DDIL, 'Where is my seam ripper?' Where are my scissors?' Poor DDIL. She will be sorry. heehee. 

I am tired. I think it's time for some ice cream. I had a busy day, including sit and sew. I got a lot done, even though I had a late start.
