Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

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!

Great way to get your exercise Kathleen.  I have no stairs here thankfully.  Well one step down into my laundry/storage room. 

Yah,  I've got my mama's cheekbones.    My hair kept growing and before I cut it,  it was down to my bum,  hubbies was down to the middle of his back.  That was the 70;s and how to do it. 

I'm without water overnight.  My landlord got a $240 water bill when it's usually $25.  He came and checked last evening to see if he could find anything in the house to warrant it.  NOPE..................came back today with heavy and started digging between the water meter and the house and found a major leak (no wonder the side yard is wet all the time).  SO he started working on it,  but needed "something" he didn't have to fix it.  I told him I could deal without water overnight.  He'd already been at it for 3 hours and it was 9pm and he'd been working in the dark for 2 hours.  SO No coffee in the morning !!!

I'm almost done cutting the squares for the baby quilt blocks. So close to being able to sew them but I just can't stand at the table any longer to finish the cuts (I wouldn't start sewing tonight anyway. It's after midnight). I think it took me about two hours and about a dozen trips upstairs to bring each piece of fabric one at a time, down to the kitchen. I had pressed and starched everything and had it spread out on the spare bed so it wouldn't wrinkle. Didn't want to drape it anywhere in the kitchen, so I got a lot of exercise to boot. I can feel it in my feet. Sipping my cuppa green tea and then it's bedtime.

Great Mummy Cindy.   Very cool. 

Great on the mitts Agnes.

Cindy--Great mummy. The eyes remind me of the Cookie Monster. Your mummy done in blue would certainly be a hit with little kids that watch Sesame Street.

Working on the pot holders/mitts. I grabbed the quilted cut out fabric to pull something out of the microwave. Hopefully by tomorrow night I will have three pair made. Definitely keeping two sets for myself, maybe all three. I like to stock pile some of those kinds of things for myself when I finally get them made. These have been on an unofficial list for years.

GRRR, three times I've had comments about ready to post and POOF, they're gone into the nether regions of the cyber world. Will give it one more try.

Rita, good news from yourPT . Nice to be able to get more done at home. Hopefully your recovery will go quicker now.

Agnes, great finish on your quilt. I'm sure it will be appreciated by the recipient.

Good news Thel. Bet it is wonderful having the security of being able to take walks with Lucy and fear any falls.

I finished my mummy today. Will post here as this is where we are all congregated now. Forgot to change my settings so photo will be above by itself. Was just happy to be able to get this going that I didn't check my settings first.

Woohoo Cora.  What color you painting? 

Stacked Frames in fall colors will be beautiful Agnes. 

The clouds have moved in, looks like we might get some rain.  We really don't need anymore. 

Ouch on the burn Agnes.  I bet you'll whip out some great oven mitts.
