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!

Good morning. It is bright and sunny out this morning after the torrential rain we had last night along with thunder and lightening. How do I know you ask? Because we were out in it at an ambulance call close to midnight last night. Didn't get back home till 2 am.

Welcome Veronica. Just jump right in where you last left off.

I haven't tried freezing green onions although they are not something I use very often.

Well, I better get ready for work. Glad today is just half a day.

Have a great day...

The green onion freeze is a test I guess Mary Alice.  I cut off the tops of the stalks, pulled off the very outer skins and just froze them like that in Food Save bags.  If they're not great for stir fry and such, they'll be used to make soup broths and flavor stews.  They can't be totally bad so figured I'd try it and see.  

I can understand those reasons for restless sleep.  You sure have a lot on your plate.  Maybe you can put a body pillow on either side of you at night so you can't roll onto your side.  I had to learn to sleep on my right side only due to an internal ear injury that is non operable.  I have the body pillows up against my back and lay on my right side and they stop me from rolling back. Maybe something like that could be a help Mary Alice. 

The green onions are ones gifted from the food pantry, LOTS of them.  My raised garden doesn't have the depth for onions.  I do have sweet potatoes in a giant flower pot, otherwise no root veggies growing here.  

Emmm, grape flavored Crystal Light is delicious.  

Have a good night, time to turn in here.

Welcome back Veronica. I'm sure you do just as nicely as the rest of us. 

The sale went well today. It was bittersweet to see all the things on sale racks. Of course some things went reall y cheap and some went at good prices. It's a load off sis in law's mind to have this overwith.

Thel are those onions from your garden bed? I almost have a ripe tomato. It's so tempting to pick it early but I'm going to wait until it's nice and ripe.

Froggie your little Spring quilt is really cute. Love your label, too. You'll probably get brownie points for that.

Kim, I hope the weather clears so you can squish sand through your toes soon.

Welcome back Veronica!

Thel, I didn't know you could freeze green onions!  Learn something new everyday!

I think my sleepless nights are the anxiety I feel over taking care of my mom and house by myself.  So much to do, only 1 of me.  The CPAP machine is also another issue.  I'm a side sleeper, and I need to learn to be a back sleeper.  Every time I turn on my side to sleep, the CPAP machine face mask shifts and shoots air in my eyes, which causes me to wake up.  If by chance that doesn't happen, I guess I crimp the mask hose, and the machine shuts off by itself. 

I'm off to relax tonight.  Debating on getting up early and mowing the lawn or taking another day of recuperation.  

I managed to cut out my wallhanging today.  I think it took longer than expected, and the Accuquilt did give generous yardage.  I probably could have done them with fat quarters.

Finally settled back down after being out this evening.   I got the trash out so I don't forget and while it was still light out.   With the street corner streetlight out, it's pretty dark out there.  Yes, I have a work order in with the power company.  

I pickled some of the green onions, used a lot of them in stir fry (oh how delicious), been using them in salads and finally decided to freeze up the last of them.   Yes, I'm greatly enjoying my connections at church.  

I'm bummed you didn't get to stick your toes in the sand today Kim.  That just isn't fair. I was so looking forward to that.  

LOVE Spring and your label Froggie.     Please make sure to travel safely.  I'm gonna miss you.  

Hi Veronica.  Welcome back.  I don't think you've been here since I Have and I honestly don't recall how long I have.  That old-timerz you know.  

Well, wonder if I can accomplish anything else this evening.

Very pretty Froggie. Have fun at the cabin.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 12 hours ago

Where is everyone today? I wanted to post a picture of my Spring hanging. It fits just right on my stand hanger. 

Don't have too much fun while I am having fun at the lake cabin. Oh that's not nice. OK everyone can have fun. I crack me up.

Well, no toes in the sand today. It really never cleared up all day and then rain showers late afternoon. Later in the week should be nice though.

Have fun at the cabin Froggie. How long will you be gone?

Sounds like you are really getting involved with the church Thel. Good for you. What did you do with all the green onions? Did you freeze them?

We are on ambulance squad tonight and then covering for someone tomorrow night.
