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.

Good morning. My house is so quiet! Not sure what I am doing today. I normally go to town for a quilting group but my house looks like a bomb went off and I have 3 reports to do. And yesterdays project is calling me! Lots of time to decide as no one else will be up and about for hours here!

Yes, that is my butterfly quilt, Sheila, don't you just love it? I sure do. You crack me up.

Abducted by quilting aliens, Mary Alice? Not a bad idea.

It was nice to sleep in for three days, now back to reality. It's spirit week at the high school, so DGS1 and his friend tie dyed t shirts for today.

I think I will go play in the quilting room for a bit this morning until DD1 wakes up. Did everyone hear me screaming and doing the happpy dance last night at 9????Yup, it's finished!!!!!

Sheila, love your quilt!!!  I have so many UFOs waiting to be quilted that aliens may have to come and take me away to get them done! LOL!

25 lb box of  hot Hatch green chili peeled and put away.  My hands were burning until I took a tomato, cut it in half and used it to wash my hands with.  Burning went away soon.

I love this week's project.  Love hearts! I'm going to make mine scrappy using my stash.

Dang, Froggie! It's one of your pics since it's sideways!

One more UFO down! Yes, it really is square - just the angle I had to take the photo at to avoid shadows on it.

I will get a pic of the tree skirt, Lou Ann! Or ten or twenty.

No need to apologize, Diane, I didn't expect a project until tomorrow, either. I think Mari likes to keep us on our toes.

DD1 and I spent the afternoon writing down families birthdays. She got us a perpetual calendar, so we wrote down dates. Then, we got started updating our Ancestry account. She had some documents that my niece gave her. I learned a lot, and a lot of questions were answered. It was fun. Now to finish the tree skirt binding.

Happy Labor Day all! I really needed this three days, so will go to work tomorrow rested.

I've managed to get all of my closet cleaned up, but decided to just rest. It was fun catching up, and Barbara I love that apron too. I'm anxious to see that tree skirt, so please don't let her take it home unless you take a picture first.

Hopppy Labor Day!

Wow, that's more than I ever spend, Diane. About twice as much. Kids eat a lot, don't they?

Very cute, Mari! I should be able to settle back into working on projects in a couple of days.

Ouch, Mary Alice, tooth pain is bad. I hope the meds help.

Too funny, Barbara! Froggie with big teeth.

I slept in today, then worked on some paperwork I have been putting off. I hate that stuff. And I still need to pay bills. Yuck. I need some quilty time bad.
