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.

Busy Busy group. It was a veggie day for me. Not a stitch sewn, I had a nice nap with Moose earlier.  Haven't had to energy to do anything for some reason.  The only thing I accomplished all day was playing with the pups and cleaning their indoor playpen.

Oh well, tomorrows another day.

Good to hear Froggie feeling a bit better. Now just stay on your lily pad in the sewing room. Really though, 80's music? Don't have any idea
who the artists even were. Now give me 50's & 60's and I'm a happy sewer.

That's another long day Mary Alice. You're one busy gal.

YEah, it really saps the energy. I sat and watched my machine embroider for an our this morning. It was nice. And listening to the 80's music.

You didn't pick up those designs yet? You will be ecstatic when you see them. Didn't you just buy that nook? Mebbe not.

I am tired this evening, I played slowly in the quilting room all day. And we had burgers for dinner, they were very good. With lots of bacon.

Glad everyone made it back home okay.  Mary Agnes, mail those Rowbyrows home and you'll have room in your suitcase. 

Froggie, glad to hear you feel better and are in the sewing room.  Just stop and rest when you feel the need. 

So beat from spending the morning at the beauty shop and the afternoon shopping at SAMS.  It's HOT out there!  I was too tired to take a detour and get a Mocha Frappacino!  I didn't even go pick up my AG designs.  I'll go on Friday after taking mom for routine blood work and grabbing breakfast.  

My Nook is dying.  It's taking forever to charge the battery, and just reading at night brings it all down.  May need to break down and get a new one--they now have the Samsung Galaxy 10 or the 6.  Even thinking of Amazon Kindle Fire, but all my books are on Nook.

Awe, Froggie, so happy to hear you are doing a little bit better. Bronchitis really saps the energy so, do take it slow and take a nap. You have a built in excuse for that, eh?!

I love the camel, he is so happy and looks like he has just traveled to CT and is back home in his comfy bed.

You bought so many row by row kits, MaryAgnes! You have to bring a bigger suitcase than you need when you are packing. See, Barbara agrees with me! We is right.

I think I feel a little better today, I am slowly making an apron with a ME design on it. This is one I dreamed about after seeing the design at the shop. So far, it's turning out like I was thinking. I'm just taking it slow and easy.

Pretty camel this morning.  Very colorful.

I've yet to do anything today but sit here doing computer stuff.  I just got my boot on, so will be getting the puppies playpen opened up so they can race around for a while.  That gives me the chance to clean everything too. 

Nice that all travels have been safe and getting settled back in.

Oh wow, camel day already. I agree Barbara, looks like he should be on a suitcase. And Mari you're right, it does look like the old silks. I've seen them worked into old crazy quilts.

Mary Agnes, safe travels to you. Enjoy the rest of your trip and get together with your high school group. Glad you had the opportunity to come north and meet up with us. 

Froggie, hope you're a bit better today. Again, take care and let the guys wait on you.

Amy, give Anne my love. May she be wrapped in our hugs and feeling better fast. Hugs to you, It's a stressful time for you as well.
