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.

You're welcome for a party here.  Crank up those brooms.  I've got lots of salad fixings too.  

That made me laugh Barbara.  I can relate to that.  My herd messes up the windows so badly.   It's a constant cleaning issue.   

I'll take a margarita while I clean windows.  Now that I can walk cane free,  I can get it done !!!   I still get surprised that I am pain free and that I get up and just WALK without limping or needing support.  Phew !! it makes me breathless and very thankful. 

I have one of those Spin Scrubber (as seen on TV) things ordered from Amazon.  I am envisioning many uses for it besides the tub and shower.   This girl may be more mobile but I still have reaching limitations to deal with.   Way better than 2 weeks ago.  

Yup, lots of lasagna,  but It'll last for some long time.

I'm thinking of this quilt along. I really like Pat Sloan's quilt alongs. Sadly not finding fat quarters I like. I know she's using a bundle of 40 fat quarters, but those are sold out everywhere. Going to check on CT fabrics.

Has anyone heard from Agnes????

Love your Grim Ripper with the stars and moon fabric, Kim. Talk about perfect!  See, every bit of fabric is worth keeping. Never know when it will be needed.

I am doing the Grandma's Kitchen and Take The Roundabout quilt alongs. Have a good collection of 30's and 40's fabrics to use. All of a sudden I have lots of projects in the works. 

We won't talk about window washing. Living where we have the corrosive salt air, the metal surrounds are pitted and dull, and with hard water there's always a spotty residue on things. No matter what I use it just won't cut it. Oh, and most of my windows don't open and would need a 20 ft ladder.  

Take care everyone and have a good evening.

I am doing a happy DANCE, Debra is back,   You must have been able to feel how much we thought of you and all the prayers for you. Stay strong, and proud of yourself, and proceed at your own pace.

Cute little Ripper , Carol Ann, I was n't  going to do it, but since everyone else is, I will get busy. I have printed out the pattern, Thanks twice Barbara, you saved us procrastinators, many minutes of scrolling back through, you are the best.

 I have often thought that Spring cleaning should be done in the winter, we are stuck inside anyway , why not. Shall we have a quilting window washing day, we could start with margaritas, and it will go fast.

Thanks for the link Barbara.

My Windows are tilt in also. Best thing we did. Not that I wash them often but I can if the urge ever hits.

Ok, off to check out the new Pat Sloan  QA.

Comment by Barbara S/IL 1 hour ago

Oh, I am looking at the new QA (Grandma's Kitchen) by Pat Sloan. I'll try to keep up but I don't know why. I'm doing the Blockheads, The Splendid Sampler II and the Designer's BOM as well as QOV quilting. Maybe that's why my windows are dirty. LOL

Debra it's so good to see you back with us!! I have often thought and sent up a little prayer for you. We have all missed you.

Oh Thel that is such a little cutie. I guess I think all kittens are cuties. I'm so glad she landed in your care.

Love your Ripper Carol Ann. 

My windows need to be washed, too. Have you seen the joke about the wife that kept criticizing the neighbors laundry that didn't look clean? One morning she looked out and told her husband that the neighbor finally learned how to do the laundry as it was so white. He told her he just washed the windows. That would be my windows these days. And I even have the kind that can be  opened into the house to be washed. Now I am ashamed of myself. 

That's a LOT of lasagna, Thel. Are we gonna have a party at Thel's tonight?

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 2 hours ago

Yahoo for VDGS to get mowing done.   Good for him. 

Yes, it breaks my heart to know how neglected kittens can be.  Praise the Lord we got Cara-mel saved.   Nature can be cruel when the humans that have sweet animals leave them outside with no care at all.  Some people just should not have animals, period.  She was so close to dead yesterday when she arrived it was heartbreaking.  The fleas had chewed her up so badly that the water on the first two washes just ran red with blood.  Now,  she's perfectly clean, eating well, playing and loving.  It takes a village. 

You did find the perfect use for that fabric Carol Ann.

I had just a fat quarter of that moon-and-stars-on-black fabric, and have no idea what I was going to do with it.  Funny how something suddenly shows up that's perfect for that little bit of fabric, inn'it?

Cara-mel is such a sweet looking kitty!  I'm kind of a kitty person (No!, Really?), and find that it's difficult to think about a kitten dying from a flea infestation!  Nature can sometimes be a bit cruel.

Too hot here for lasagna tonight!  I'm fixing a salad and cold sandwiches with sweet tea.  I have a quilt guild meeting later tonight.
