Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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 know I have my suggestible moments.......but geeze the gal comes here on just about the hottest day of the season so far and I hadn't had lunch yet. They she starts talking about chicken salad sammies and fresh fruit salad. How could a girl not want some !
I need to do some research on what flea treatments are acceptable for my 14 week old itty Ms JuneBug. No one else in the house has fleas yet she still has some. I gave her a bath with a flea & tick shampoo just 2 days ago and there are still some on her and they're making little sore spots. I've been using a bit of neosporin on the spots. Any ideas of a concoction I might make with home supplies until I can get something made special for the purpose. I've combed with a flea comb and think I may have gotten most.
Never ending little challenges.

What else is the floor for, Froggie.  You remind me of The Odd Couple, Oscar, Oscar, Oscar!!

You are so suggestible, Thel, but, then, aren't we all when it comes to good food.  I'd never have thought of cucumber water but now I want some. Oh, and I'll take a bushel of the peaches.  It's so hard to find good peaches.  I remember when Long Island was famous for their peaches. I wonder if there's even one orchard left.

Great tablet rest, ranchmom. You're so clever with the beans, and it could double as a bean bag for Malia.

No finishing bug today, but I did take a lovely nap this afternoon.  Blame it on Barbara.

I gotta get me some maters at the Farmer's Market.  The ones in the supermarket never taste like they did off the vine in the backyard.

I got a lesson in needle turn applique this afternoon from a woman at my Auspicious Stitches group.  She's appliqueing her interpretation of the "Becoming Another" Mask exhibit  currently at the Rubin Museum.  She sure does lovely work.

Editing, Mari! You crack me up. I need to edit bad. I kept knocking things on the floor today. I kept thinking, at least I will know where to find it again. I'm working hard on FFFing. 

You made up a new word, Barbara, freat. hehee. I would love some fresh yummy peaches, please. I hope you don't get the brine in the peaches and the butter and sugar in the pickle relish. Yukc. 

Cucumber water is so good! My niece made lemon and mint water on Saturday, it was very good, too. 

She shouldn't have told you about the chicken salad sammich, Thel!  Yum. 

The July little is almost finished. If the embroidery machine had behaved, the label would be done, and I would be hand stitching right now. I better take her for a spa day.

LOVE it ranchmom . Your modifications are great. I can see making it to use the way you are. Now I want to make it instead of passing it by.

Darn Meals on Wheels lady was making me hungry with her talk about the meals..............and she lamented that she didn't bring me the chicken salad sandwich, fresh fruit salad with pecans and ice cream. She had my mouth watering ! I will be getting meals delivered, just havne't figured out the start date yet. Soon ! \
Back to the daffodil.

Ranchmom it looks freat! Love your hints. I like using walnut shells in pincushions and for weight. 

I got 6 more qts of peach pie filing and three more pints of pickle relish made. Just have about 15 more minutes in the hot water bath and it will be done. If any of you  want peaches, you'll have to get here fast. They won't stay on the tree much longer.

I sliced up a cucumber with a couple of lemons in water to keep in the frig. It's supposed to be very refreshing and I could use some of that right now. I haven't had time for a nap, darn. No time for sewing either - darn darn double darn.

Froggie- FFF FFF FFF

I'm so happy you all love the project for this week.

Barbara, you crack me up with the ZZZZZs. Actually, a nap long about now sounds really good! zzzzzz...

Ranchmom, love the table stand! Also, very clever changes with the beans and crushed walnuts!

Froggie, I know, what's up with the rain anyway? It's nice though! LOL! My quilting space is so covered with junk I can't even begin anything. I need to do some serious editing in there! You are not alone! It takes all the fun out of sewing when it looks like that, grrrrrr (to me!). Froggie, FFF, FFF, FFF...

Ohhhhh Andy has some great projects on her page! Focus, Froggie, Focus. That would be FFF, FFF, FFF, FFF. 

I crack me up. 

Back to July Little. FFF.

Oh I forgot to say on Littles, It's Raining in the PNW!!! What is this world coming to? 

You crack me up, Mary! Why doesn't Chuck and the Bunnies finish one tomato before going to the next? Tell him to go away. I bet you have already. 

Do I have to hypnotize you too, Barbara? YOu Will Make This Pillow. YWMTP! YWMTP! 

Oh I love it, Ranchmom! Hey, I have that book too! hehee. That's a great idea, beans in the center to give it weight. Is that leather or pleather I see? 

I have to work on some Gifty projects. First, to finish the July little, and do some cleaning or something in the quilting room. I seriously need professional help. Not sure if it's for cleaning or my brain. Probably my brain. Things are working strangely in there lately. I used to be so need and organized.

Here is the pictures of my project #2.  I did some changes the front shelf is stuffed with crushed walnut shells so that it can be used as a pincushion.  I used all solid fabrics and filled the main body with navy beans in a plastic bag and polyester stuffing around it.  I wanted it to be heavy enough to hold a book so thought the beans would have more weight. 

Not sure if I like how it turned out but I will use it on my cutting table to hold patterns.
