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!

Hi All.

There is certainly enough info about 'not looking at the sun' out there that people should know better. There was even a piece on our news by  a guy sho had looked at the sun during an eclipse and has permanent eye damage. I also wondered about animals if they look at the sun ever. Wouldn't there be a lot of blind animals running around after eclipses if they did?

My house smells so good right now. I have pork roast in the slow cooker and my sis just baked an apple pie. Other sis put things together to make mac n cheese. Ther will be 10 for dinner tonight. 

The sad thing is that my brother's cancer is not responding to treatment. They have gotten a referral to Mayos in MN. 

All the siblings will be together this weekend for the wedding so tha will be great.

No sewing going on here.

Love your projects Froggie and Ranchmom.

In my younger years I probably would have going out of my way to see the eclipse but not now.  My hubby was like you Kim.   He would go out of the way to experience an extreme storm.

Good morning,
I love that I can check in now while at work.
I think that the eclipse is totally fascinating. But you know I love weather and storms. The more intense the storm, the better. I find the solar system to be amazing and am looking forward to seeing some of the eclipse. I totally understand why people are traveling from great distances to see it. The last total eclipse that went across the whole US from coast to coast was in 1776.

They should think of the seven P's, ranchmom. That's what they should have done PRIOR to leaving home. I think they should also have brought gas, I saw tons of cars on TV waiting in line for gas. And the stations are running out, just like in the 70's. The animal thing makes me wonder if they normally look at the sun. Maybe they would, if something different is going on. I love your attic windows! Is that for you, how cute, flowers in tea pots. 

I'm thinking about working in the yard this morning. It's supposed to be hot and muggy today. My grass has grown so much since it's been raining so much! DD1 bought me a towel that you get wet, snap, and it cools you off. I will get to use it for the first time if I go outside.

Oh ranchmom! Sorry, I meant to say how much I like your attic window wall hanging. Very pretty.

I heard about the knock-off glasses too. Also heard this morning on the news that some people are actually opening their homes to these strangers. Not sure if it's their personal homes they are living in or vacation homes they aren't using. Sort of like AirBnB type thing. No thank you!

Love your attic windows ranchmom.  beautiful.  Yes,  there are counterfeit glasses around here too.  Hope that all my friends will be safe.

I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects.  I have a baby quilt that I have almost finished quilting and will post a picture of it when I have the binding done.

Thel I know, they have special glass you can get to look at the eclipse but heard on the radio today that some have been sold locally that are not safe, they are trying to locate what store sold them so they can be replaced with the real thing.    TJ will be in the house but all my outside kitties hopefully will be in their shady places.

Geeze people are going nuts over this eclipse.  Don't they realize that IF they don't have the proper protection for their eyes they could really have problems.  It doesn't necessarily show up right off but the eyes slowly deteriorate.    ME,  I'm staying IN and praying I can make sure al my cats are IN too.

Yep Prineville, is over run with people DD told me today the Portland news was saying they were all out of rental cars.  Not sure what they would do, people flying in and no cars to rent to get to the eclipse viewing area. 

We went to Idaho today shopping and the traffic coming from California was surprising all loaded with gear to camp and watch the eclipse.  Glad we went today, going to stay off the road now until next Wednesday or Thursday and they should all be home.
