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.

I think I did just slip on my lip, Sheila! OUCCH!

OHNO, Mary Alice, you had to make your own birthday dinner? Maybe you can take yourself out tonite to a restaurant. And a puppy adopted you? No more dogs for me.

DGS1 told me about Nimoy. That's sad. He was a good one.

Hopppy birthday, Mary Alice! You really got some good presents for yourself.

I have been hiding from the porcupines today. The Annie performance will be tomorrow instead of today, I am glad I will still be able to see it. If they changed it to next weekend, DGS1 will be gone! In Denver with  Winter Guard.

Happy Birthday Mary Alice!  You shouldn't be doing all that work on your birthday!  DD's is Monday and she is already celebrating with her birthday "weekend".  I usually take 3 days off from work when mine rolls around.  That way I get a week off with out taking a week of vacation!

I heard you all!  What a great chorus you all are in singing!   Thank you!!  My birthday is actually today.  They celebrated a day early.  But it was nice!  I treated myself to some goodies--fabrics (50% off coupon), batting (40% off coupon), thread (25% off coupon), Hoopsisters Sewn Seeds class (still need fabrics), new iPhone and iPad mini.  Woohoo!

Sheila, still sad about Leonard Nimoy, but he shouldn't have been smoking like a train!  Perhaps he wasn't as logical as he thought!  But at least he prospered in life as an actor.

Managed to vacuum and mop today, plus toasted another batch of chilis for rellenos.  Felipe loves these rellenos.  Last evening he ate 4.  My platter of 12 rellenos for 4 people was gone in a flash!

I heard that yesterday, Mary Alice. Such sad news. But, don't let it get in the way of celebrating your Birthday. He would want you to Live Long & Prosper, you know.

Oh no, sad news, Leonard Nimoy passed away.  So down now.  I loved Mr. Spock on original Star Trek.  

Now I gotta make myself a Star Trek Quilt for memories.

Oh no, Mother Sheila is out.  It was a balmy 27 degrees this morning and with the wind chill factor it was 20.  Mom and I went out in this blowing cold weather to go to local fabric store and use my 25% off coupon at one place, 50% off coupon at another place, and to get myself a new phone plus iPad mini as they had a great deal!  Now to learn to use both of them,..LOL.  It's not like my old iPhone or the iPad I have, it's newer and I made sure it had their interent connection so I can go anywhere and have it there.

Tomorrow should be in the 70s, but windy.   I'll just be happy it'll be warmer.

Seems a dog has adopted me.  I go out to feed my cat, Chatita, and low and behold, this little chihuahua gets through fence to eat with her! They must have been hungry as they cleaned the plate!  Poor little chihuahua.  Who knows who owns him as there are tons of chihuahuas here just roaming around and barking at everyone.  This one was rather tame though, not one bark.  

Debra, take care of that cold now.  Hate having that hacking cough that seems  to stay with you forever! Drink lots of hot toddy's, oh, I mean tea with lemon and honey ( a splash of whiskey, alright, make it two splashes-big ones).

Made a whole stack of chili rellenos today, and then mom and I went over to my aunt's for dinner with cousins, Felipe and Cindy (aunt's daughter).  I was surprised that they had a B-day cake for me.   A day early, but it's nice to have a surprise.....so why did I have to make dinner??  My aunt made the rice and salad.
