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.

Don't listen to Mary Agnes OR Sheila.......or at least put me next in line if you find 3 copies of a pattern.

Just like New York, New York.  So great they named it twice.

And don't listen to Sheila.  She's trying to make trouble.  I'll send you my address.

It's from Art To Heart's Cider Mill Road by Nancy Halvorsen.

Wow! What a great teacher gift! Love those placemats! Is there a pattern for them? Yes, it would take a teacher to know what goes into prepping for students learning.

Resting now after organizing. I need more tubs. Found out I have double patterns because I liked it so much I bought two.

I think Jill does it because she's a teacher too.  And she is very generous with Abby's teachers because she realizes what they put into their class - lots of time and their own $$$$.

Wow, nice end-of-year teacher gift! You know, I don't recall every doing end-of-year gifts for my girls' teachers. I should ask them if they remember giving teacher gifts.

Finished some apple placemats.  They were requested by DD as a end-of-year gift for DGD's 3rd grade teacher.  My daughter will make up a basket with the placemats, some coordinating paper plates and napkins, add mustard, ketchup, pickles and other "picnic fixings" along with a grocery gift card so the teacher can shop for picnic food.  Last year's teacher loved her gift - but it was watermelon placemats last time!

Yup, the cat did it. He got a shower and looks like a person now.

I bet that was a good dinner, Marilyn. Yum. No more food for you for the day. I am trying to cook some turkey breasts, but don't know if they will get finished before time to eat. I can just fix the turkey for tomorrow's dinner, and find something else quick and easy for tonite if I need to.

Froggie,  glad to hear that Skyler had a grand time last eve. Sure a nice photo of him. These young fellows clean up pretty good, don't they? I love seeing all the pictures posted on Facebook of the local kids in their prom finery. 

We had a great turnout at our dinner after church. I'm so stuffed I don't want to do a thing!  I've already dozed off while sitting here at my computer. LOL  Don't think I will be doing any sewing this afternoon.
