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.

I figure Matt must have a floodlight off that end of the house to see the wooded area just outside the kitchen.  That end of the house has big sliders/a greenhouse and deck.  The house is in the middle of 11 acres of woods at the end of a long dirt dead end road so being able to see around the house was always important to us too.  

Your tree is just beautiful Kathleen.   I love how soft it looks.   It could look like an upside down tree!  You crack me up ! 

OH MY!   Kim is waiting to see if she's pregnant !!  What a way to start the new year!

That's such a cute living tree Kathleen. I think red bows would look awesome.

Beautiful pictures Thel. The butterfly is pretty neat.

Barbara, the Big Duck was actually a store on a duck farm where they sold local poultry. Long Island was home to numerous duck farms way back in time. There is only one duck farm left on Long Island that I know of. He has been moved a few times and is now back in his original place and the land has been preserved as a park. Now he has become a tourism stop. Inside there are souvenirs and information about the area I think.

Mary Alice, you had mentioned awhile back about getting a car to make it easier for both you and Mom. Is that still something your thinking about?

I got all my stuff done today that I needed to. I made myself a list this morning and crossed off every single thing. I think I will do the same thing tomorrow. Hopefully it will keep me on track during this busy time period. 

Clue 3 comes out tomorrow. The last two have been very easy as Bonnie was out of the country. I think tomorrow's clue will be much more involved.

Well, I think it is almost time for bed. Maybe some reading first. And I might have some happy news to start the New Years. We shall see what happens.

Here's my tree! Looking at this picture it kinda looks like an upside-down pine tree. I'm debating on adding the red bows I usually use. (just ignore that toy basket in the back)

Oh Thel, those pictures are so beautiful, and so welcoming! I just love seeing pictures of this house. What is making all the outdoor light on the right-hand side? Is there a big spotlight off the house?

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 7 hours ago

Yes,  it was wonderful to learn of Matt owning the house and treasuring it.  He's shown me pictures of the inside too and wow, what great memories.  It was a big weight outa my head to know that it hadn't been destroyed over time.

Boy mom sure does keep you coming and going doesn't she Mary Alice.  Now this may sound crazy, but would she even notice if you had someone come and sit with her and went out to do your errands.  Just someone who'd 'be there' in case she needed something.  I say, try it!!!  

Many many many years ago,  DH and I stopped exchanging gifts at Christmas (like back in the 70's).  That was specifically to get the commercial part of the season OUT of our part of celebrating.     Well,  that is the way I've continued to live except for with my sister.  She and I exchange gifts.   Otherwise, it's birthdays and anniversaries that I/we celebrate/d .   

My chicken came out great in the IP, I've gotta continue to get the meat off it.  I haven't decided what I'm gonna enjoy with it yet for today.  

I've been working on a Primrose quilt.  It's ready to sandwich.  I haven't decided what I'm using yet.

Kim that duck is too cute!  I like it!  It's a neat idea! 

Thel, love that house picture with all the snow.  Bet you're happy someone who loves it as much as you did bought it. 

I've not shopped for anyone.  Mom has never liked Christmas (she's always been a scrooge).   I only need to get my brother and SIL a gift.  I rarely give a gift to my sister and her whole family, but getting her something from Amazon is an idea as she's got a birthday coming up near Christmas.  I'd love to gift her an instant pot, but not sure she'd use it. She swears by her crock pots.

I did want to go to a nice dinner at Si Senor for some red enchiladas or taco salad, but mom didn't take a shower.  

I'm so happy I'm staying home this weekend!

We did get invited to my cousins for making tamales from 1-5 on Sunday, but I'm passing on that.

I'm back!  It's been another long day.  Went to my regular doctor and had very good results on my tests.  YAY!  But my appointment was a 10:30, I had arrived at 10:10,  and I didn't get called till 11:00.  Got out of there around 11:50, and went to McDonalds for a hamburger, fries and small drink.  Then to shop at Sprouts for what I needed.  Of course half the time goes on helping mom off the truck and her getting to the buildings, getting her back to the truck and sitting comfortably.  She's gotten really slow lately.  Some days I wonder if I should just leave her at home.  But I'd worry about her being alone.  I can't win either way. Plus I can't shop comfortably because I sit mom down at their eating area, and when she gets tired of waiting she goes looking for me.  So needless to say, I didn't get to everything I wanted to see at Sprouts because someone was impatient. Hmmm, maybe I should just buy ready to eat frozen foods from Walmart--can't go any more wrong that that pound of lard I got for bacon that they picked out for me--I had to toss that.
