Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

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 18th - December 19th, 2016 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.

Thanks Mary Agnes...............is it perfect NO,  but I'm happy with the results so far.   I haven't finished anything in SO long that I'm hoping to get this to that place.  I'm too tired to start the next borer,  altho it is cut and ready.  

I'm feeling like it's bedtime,  but waiting for my Moose to come in from his evening run....................He's out there looking for he girls.  He thinks they should still be there to protect.  Hopefully he'll realize soon that they've moved on.

Thel, don't worry. Done is better than perfect.  And it looks fabulous.

Thanks for reminding me about the lasagna, Froggie.  I'd better get up to Massachusetts soon or those little twins will be taking it to college with them for a Friday night dinner in the dorm.

I like leaving real early for a trip, Anne.  Maybe I could borrow my friend's car and go visit you and come to NY in the same day.  I'll have to check Google Maps. Are you in Framingham? I can't remember exactly.

Dry weather is bad enough; but dry and hot? You're a better woman than I am, Mary Alice. I might be crazy but coming from the East Coast I'd miss the humidity.

Is the block placement perfect,  probably NOT,  BUt it is MY scrappy quilt and scrappy it is. 

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 10 hours ago

A wonderful evening here.  I have gotten and update on "the girls" and they are content as peas in a pod.  Yes Froggie,  we do work quick most of the time.  I wish I could have gotten a picture of their new location, but the gentleman does a lot of this work and wants to stay under the radar.  Let's just say it's perfect.  AND there is already someone waiting to adopt them TOGETHER (to be indoor girls) as soon as their 5 day stray hold is complete. 

I got the next stage done on my scrappy,  I'm really liking it.  My brain is working overtime deciding on finishing plans. 

The next round is a dark green in the same line.

OH thanks, MaryAgnes. I thought something like that. I hope it will be good for you and Chou.

Thanks, Dentist Agnes! I didn't know that. My tooth is dead, dead, dead. I am not having problems eating!

That is good news, Thel. You guys work quick. Yup, you do.

Very cool, Cora! Needles and yarn all supplied for you. And then they get donated, what a good idea.

You and Chou can travel around, visiting everyone for a month. Good idea. You just have to buy a little food, and a plane ticket.

Well howdy, Anne, I sure do miss you! MaryAgnes already had Lasagna in your freezer, so she is set for food for a couple of days. 

Oh Rita, Dougie must be working hard on your eyes! 15? they sure are making docs younger, aren't they? Good thing you check his nose and shoes. 

That is hilarious, Carol! Training wheels~ 

Why is that, MaryKaren? Docs used to be soooo old, like 30. They sure have changed over the years. 

Yup, sit and sew was fun. AND two people asked me about CT fabric. I am the CT spokeswoman for sit and sew. I better get me some finder's fee bucks. I crack me up.

When I graduated nursing school and started to work in 1972 all the Drs were old, probably 20-30 years older than me...real old!  Now I work with 12 year olds!  What happened, can't be me.....no,  definitely not me.

Years ago (seems like 2 but must be longer), my husband owned and operated a bicycle repair shop.  After my eye doctor retired, I went for my appointment and to meet my new doctor.  He is from our area .......and I distinctly remember my husband taking off the training wheels on his first bike.  When I told him, he laughed and offered to show me his med school diploma.  I still think he's about 10 - a very smart 10 but still!

Afternoon all, trip in to Spokane for CT scan, a few errands and now back home, We had rain earlier( most of the nite)but sun is out for now, we have a lot more rain on tap for later in the week.

Nice to see so many that we have been concerned about checking in, Anne, Debra, Patte, Cindy,  hugs to all that need them.

 My Macular Degeneration  Dr comes in the room  and I have to bite my tongue to not call him Dugie Howser ( sp) and I always look and see if his nose is wiped and his shoes are tied. He is about 15.
