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. 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.

Were you typing in your sleep, Thel? 

Oh no, a non-wordy lawyer? What is this group coming to? You will recover after you have a bagel. 

I agree, Agnes. It's hard enough to sleep with all the covers, pillows, and pain spots, to add another to deal with. 

That's ok, Patte, being a collector is fun and quicker than doing. 

I slept in today, how nice to sleep until I woke up. What a week that was. I hope I don't have weeks that busy for a long time. The AG event was fun, though. Now it's time to play a bit and make something fun.

To a great group of Ladies, thank you for all of your wonderful comments.  My youngest sister will be coming on Thursday to finish going through all of my craft supplies.  She is 20 yrs younger than I am, so she has plenty of time to use the supplies I have collected and if not her daughter can. I have one great niece who is into needlework so she will be getting all my counted cross-stitch patterns and floss.  That should keep her busy for a couple of lifetimes.  As you can probably tell I am more of a collector than a doer.

When I researched to try to find ways to sleep longer I found all research leads to the falling asleep problem. I read that such little things like the digital clock display and indicator lights on devises can affect your sleep. Some display colors are more disruptive than others. There are so many little variants that play into having good sleep. Nothing scientific about the following but I think the friend who told his wife that the bedroom was there for two activities and one was NOT reading maybe had it right. I never read in bed till after DH passed away and I am back to getting ready for bed, reading in the living room and then going to bed when ready. I can't imagine having to sleep with an apparatus strapped to my face.

Good Morning. NYC is actually chilly. It's 46 degrees and it feels good.

I hope everyone has a great day. Not much to say. Maybe I'm not a lawyer.

Wondering Mary Alice if wearing the CPAP before you actually settle down to sleep is part of the problem?  Know when DH started the tech came out to house to teach him the In and Outs of CPAP.  One of the things he stressed was don't watch TV or read with it on, put on mask and lie down to sleep.  I know lots of people can't sleep at all without TV on but light from TV and Kindle/Nooks have been shown to actually hinder a good nights sleep in a reach study I read.  Just a thought.

Wow ladies!! Talk about reading a book, you all wrote a full chapter today.

Great win Mary Alice. They're perfect. But all the running around, that made me tired just reading about it. Brought back memories of living in Diablo for all those years. Two hours each way to town. Don't miss it in the least. Not w it's two miles. Much better.

I don't have a Kindle but do have he free app on my phone through Amazon. Get fee books from them. Love it but I too prefer a hard copy in my hands. I have a huge stash of books to read.

I really like the mini dresden too. Somewhere in my abyss I have one I'm handstitching in lavendars. Oops, another UFO or a WIP.

Patte, you certainly have quite the stash. Your niece will be able to create some beautiful quilts from it. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Your inner strength and spirit is an inspiration. We may have a similar road ahead. Hubby will get results next week from his biopsies. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Patte.

Wow, four pages. I go out for some fun, and you keep talking and having a good time without me! Good grief, Charlie Brown. 

Love the pillows, Mary Alice. 

The boot. Mr. Bullfrog has a permanent boot, that keeps his ankle from rolling. It just took me three tries to spell ankle. He wears the brace, and a shoe. It's not a boot. Sorry. I is tired. 

It's not a big butt. I decided yesterday, when we were making a trapunto block, that my belly is not a barrel, it's trapunto. So, everyone has trapunto butts. I crack me up. 

You cracked me up, MaryAgnes, wearing a book on your foot. 

I love my Kindle too. I read regular books, Kindle books, and library books. I love them all. I haven't done the borrowing ebooks yet, and I forgot MaryAgnes told us that anyone can borrow from NYC library. E books, that is. 

We have a pumpkin roll from the grocery store. It is so good. I love pumpkin bread. 

Oh yeah, I get those free books from Amazon and the killing me site MaryAgnes likes. Good stuff. 

Yes, I spent money today. I signed up for the AG all access again. It was tough finding designs I don't have. I have accumulated just about everything. I got a free special edition, and already have it. Mebbe I will sell it on Ebay or see if a friend wants it. I am making some free standing lace charms and a pretty flower. I am in the mood to stitch. Mr. Bullfrog and his sis are watching the OU game. Oh yeah.

Thanks for the compliments on my green.  For some reason I'm overtired tonight.  It's early might I will tuck in as soon as Moose comes home from his potty business.  My nest is ready for me. 

Be Back Tomorrow.
