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!
  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.

Good morning everyone...a lot of fun claim to fame....I have none! My mother's uncle researched the family history (maternal grandmother's side) and he went as far back as around 1560....I was born in the Netherlands and city hall was constructed in 1620, so records back to that year are there....we all received a copy...so very interesting!

My granddaughter is here for a week's holiday! Great week ahead! I hope everyone has a wonderful week of.....whatever wants to be done!

Good morning All. My gosh you all got chatty after I signed off last night.

I'm not a big fan of body building either. Wonder if he was in competition with Arnold.

Great pillows Froggie. You got a lot done quilty wise, yesterday. 

I was able to finish the quilting on my little quilt and now need to find the binding. Then there's this week's FW block. Thankfully it looks like an easier one.

We got a lot of rain overnight and more to come. Should be good for the squash crop- as if I need more.

Today the A/C guy is coming back to check it out again. Whatever he did last time (a few weeks ago) didn't fix the problem. I'm thinking the 17 year old unit may be dying. UGH

Good morning gifty's,

It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I have to agree with Mary Agnes about the body building. Not my taste at all. 

Well, off to work. Will try to catch up later.

Have a great day everyone.

Call me old fashioned but I can't get used to pastel-y colors. Nails should be red! fire engine red!

I've never been to Kentucky. I'll go with you on your search, Froggie, if you think I could help. Maybe someone will adopt me. Wonder if blue grass smells as good as green.

Good Morning, Gifties. Cool again this morning. What a relief to know fall is coming, except for the shortened days.

Your cousin is good looking, Rita, but I have to admit the body is, at least to me, a real turn off. I just don't understand body building to that extent. 

Funny, Deborah.

Good luck with the foot, Kathleen.

Oops, didn't mean to hit post yet.
Linda, if you are looking for clues about the adoption, try searching the census records for the brother's family just before the time of the adoption. It will list all people living in the household, their ages and relation to the head of the household. When looking up records about my DFIL I learned he lived for a time with his uncle (after the death of his mom at age 10). Then check the dentist's census report for the next census. It may well list the adoptee as a nephew.
BTW, skunks don't smell. They are very clean critters. They only let loose as a last resort. It is their only means of protection and it takes hours to replenish the supply.
Really cute baby animal pics. You don't often see baby squirrels. I have a friend who feeds them peanuts. One of the old ones comes right up to the slider and practically knocks!

Hubby and I lived in England in the early 70's and had the honor of being at the residence/palace a couple times in London.  Funny how those memories come back when someone else shares a memory.  I have one of the Queens hankies tucked away with my treasured memory stuff.

Thank you ladies for the chuckle this evening. Hubby and I roared when I shared the comments with him. Too funny. Hubby recognized your bidy builder relative, Rita.

My claim to celebrity is Abraham Lincoln is my uncle on my Daddy's side. And only four generations back as my grandparents were born in the 1880's. And not only that,  uncle Abe's wife is a Hanks as in Tom Hanks the actor so we're also related to him. 

Also in the 80's had a brush with Queen of England when she was in Seattle touring Children's Hospital. Our son was in the NICU being born premature. The queen had her photo taken with our son in his  incubator. 

Time now for some sleep. Finally got to read all the posts from today. My tablet was acting up and couldn't get on line long enough to do anything. Actually it's not just internet, it's all our tv, internet and phone. Had a power outage earlier and things are not back to normal yet. Hopefully by morning they will be fixed.

Good luck with your appointment Kathleen.  Being laid up stinks but the "fixed body" sure is good in the end.
