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.

That's ok, Dianr, I thought it was funny! Yum, zucchini with finger. My favorite. I apologize to computer screens everywhere.

DD1 and I got Pedi's last night, Mary Alice! We got to the restaurant an hour early, had some errands first and they went quick, and saw a pedii place, so we stopped. It was very nice.

we had a great dinner last night, I had chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce, Mexican potatoes, and some corn! Then a sopapilla. Yummy. Then, we went to Marshalls and Kohl's and walked around a bit. Guess what I found to buy? New ironing board cover! Yippee! It has little dancing squares all over it. Very groovy. Tonight, DGS1, sis in law, her DD and DGS are all going to be here. I think I am going to cook burgers. I think that means I have to uncover the table. It's a mess in there, I hope we can all get around the table.

Froggie, no surgery mentioned is a good thing!  Hope all goes well, and healing continues.

Anne, grape-sicles in wine sound yummy!

Diane, running a restaurant!  Wow!  Hope it goes well, and knowing you, you'll have that place running itself in no time!

Hello everyone!  Busy canning day here!  Plus laundry day.  I can't believe it took all day long to accomplish 6 quarts of pickles!  I'm trying to can Armenian cucumbers, we'll see how they turn out.  They grow rampid around here and about 4 of our neighbors have them, and they are always giving us 4-6 of them weekly, and they add up. Those cucumbers are huge.  just took seeds out to pickle, and put a serrano chili in each jar to give it a kick.  I've got zucchini as well.  I had to make a huge pot of those with corn, onion, tomato and cheese for lunch, along with a double batch of brown rice.  Gave some to my aunt when she came over for lunch. 

Gave the neighbor who gave us the grapes, a pint jar of grape jelly.  15 minutes later, I got more grapes (and more Armenian cucumbers and zucchini)......grapes are washed and ready, but not today.  Tomorrow we get our hair appts, so mom gets her perm and cut, and I get a cut and pedi.

Good grief I called you FROGGER so sorry. It truly was a typing error! MARI you are so sweet to do that for her attendants. Can we see a picture when they are done.

I would love a very dry white wine with frozen grapes right about now. I just shredded the tip of my finger while doing zucchini. Not bad just sore and awkward and dumb!

Now I am going to do bucket pickles and maybe beets. But they might wait until after my 3 grandsons go. I'm also slicing my baby carrots and blanching them for freezing so when I make homemade soup they will be ready.

Weather here is perfect for it. It is cool due to the rain we had.Take care ladies.

I'm better now, Mari. I sat for a while and stitched part of the binding on DD1's tree skirt. We are going to meet my sis and her DD's for dinner, Mexican, yummy.

I hope Mary Agnes' class is better too...

Take a rest Froggie. Put your feet up, have a glass of whatever, and think of something that makes you feel like a million dollars!

I will be right there to clean your mess, MaryAgnes, and we can have a nice glass of wine with frozen grapes. I need it! Have fun at the class, I hope it's better this time.

What a great visual, Sheila! Pink grapefruit. I like when the sky is blue and pink.

Congrats, Mari! And bags will be such a nice gift, have fun planning and experiencing the wedding.

Doc wants Mr. Bullfrog to see a podiatrist, to see if he can make an orthodic to take the pressure off the wound. At least he didn't say surgery. I am worn out now, I think I will sit and talk to DD1 for a while.

Good morning... Cloudy and a bit cooler here. It's nice.

My daughter is getting married in September and I'm making bags for all her female attendants. Almost done. Just the handwork. Going to fill them with "essentials" for the wedding day. I'm scheduling a formal tea for all of us to attend and give them their bags at that time. It'll be fun!

Okay, okay. I'm awake, too. Mary Agnes, I have to agree - it was beautiful driving to work this a.m. The sky was a spectacular blue and the sun was reflecting off the clouds like a pink grapefruit. So pretty. And that was on a caffeine deprived brain! What would it have looked like if I'd been on high-test?? And frozen grapes as ice cubes (any time of the day) would be a grape idea! Thanks for the idea, Anne!

Froggie, we're hopping for Mr Bullfrog! Hope all goes well at wound care.
