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.

Made A flake.. A Little flimsy... like me.. I tried anyway..had fun doing it...I'll let it dry and then check it over see what happens, when I hang it up. Nice size to hang on a window. Thanks Mari. Another idea: use 6 strips...make half of it...set it in the middle of the table, and put a candle in the center..hey a candle mat!....I know have a cuppa Anne...relax..see ya later.

Debra, click on the Discussion Forum above 2014 Gifty Galore Project 12, and click on the name of the project. It will take you to the tutorial.

Ranchmom, I love that Halloween wall hanging, It is SO cute! The towels are adorable!

Seems someone else has the lucky number of 13 as well!  I always say Friday the 13th is my lucky day!  Sheila, maybe we should do all our hexes on Friday the 13th---our lucky day!

Ranchmom, love the Boo quilt!  Cute!  I'd like to see your tea towels when done! Love the fabric choices!

Thank goodness we didn't have to get "bare" to get today's project after all.  That would have truly been embarrassing! And unlike Barbara, I'm not good at origami at all! It is a cute project though.

Froggie, sorry Mr B has to go to surgery.  I wish him well and a quick recovery!

Spent the morning mowing the yard.  We are expecting more rain.  It was cool mowing the lawn this AM but those mosquitos are awful!

I'm still working on this Nursery Rhyme quilt blocks.  They sure take a while to get done.

Or, maybe you don't need any starch at all.

Hi Gifities.  Well I went to the eye doc and the eye hospital for pre-op stuff and I'm all set to have my other eye done next Tuesday.  It will be so lovely to be able to focus again.  

Debra:  You can go up above and click on Project 12 and follow instructions or you can go to Notions and you'll be there.

Great projects ranchmom.  An itinerant hairdresser.  WOW.  

I always think of 13 as lucky because it was our street address when I was growing up.  Age 13 years, however, I do not remember fondly.  Too bad we couldn't sleep through adolescence.

I love origami.  I'm not good at origami but I think it's fascinating.  A while back I made a bunch of cranes out of fabric.  My advice (even before looking at the pattern instructions) is to use lots of starch.

RanchMom I love them. She is lucky and pretty smart. She will graduate early, then on to college to be a teacher.

Mari how do I get instructions to print for the snowflake?

Debra your DGD looks like she is a very pretty young lady to bad she hates to have her picture taken.  I think she must be lucky being born on Friday the 13th, at least my Grandma use to say she was lucky for being born on Friday the 13.

Love the snow flake I am going to try to make some later today I think.  I just got back from the little town 35 miles away.  One of the girls my DD went to school  with comes out on Mondays and cuts hair.  It is so nice not to have to drive 100 miles for a hair cut.

The pictures are of the Wall Hanging I am making my DD for her Birthday and some tea towels, that are two fat quarter sewn together.  I think they turned out cute.

Oh, you are all awesome! I didn't realize I said "Bare"! HaHa! So, it began with me??!! Too funny! Sometimes getting in trouble comes naturally...
