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.

Ah, Pepper, The quilt is making it's rounds so, please grab it for a cuddle as it swings by you!

I'm off for my root canal on Thursday - oh...gooooodie...Hoping he doesn't find any cracks 'cause then it turns into an extraction instead - MJUCH more expensive to deal with as we're talking implant down the road...Argh...

Froggie has an army now! Maybe her DH will get her straightened out since he's Navy - Hey! They're pretty good at Knots so maybe Froggie is really a toad in disguise? Oh, I'm sew confused! Three days off work really did a number on me.

Yes, Beth & Anne & Thel - take it easy! No setbacks, please.

Cora, hope you get the rain you need soon! I feel so bad for everyone on the west coast that are dealing with the fires - very stressful living like that.

Wow Thel ...that boxing glove for the 'more than one' poke should be available for everyone that needs an IV ..!

I'm sure that quilt will be a great help Anne. All our hugs and prayers will be wrapped right there in it for you. There was something my sis and I did when she was going through her sugeries/chemo & radiation. We created a "virtual" support pouch that had anything and everything inside it that she could possibly need. It helped us to chuckle when we'd plan what to have it it. It included a Bible, hankies, a cigarette so when she wanted one, but couldn't have one, a whole handful of hugs, extra pain meds.......then there were some really fun things. It included an ice pick (to poke anyone who pissed her off), a boxing glove to give a good punch to any nurse who didn't get an IV in first try, a piece of chocolate cake when her sweet tooth woke up, just all kinds of crazy things. Anything you felt like you needed was right in that virtual bag. I had totally forgotten about it until I was getting ready for surgery recently and she said to me "You got your crazy bag ready to go?" and it all came back to me.

Anne,you are such a positive person and I admire you for that.I wish I was more like that.I get down and depressed to fast and takes forever to get back up.I had chemo last year that was supposed to add years for me and all I got was 5 months before the monster was back.This year I had radiation which stopped it from growing but not gone.Dr.was pleased with my last scan but I wish it was gone.

Beth, that is hilarious! Frogs in army's and toads in knots, LOL!

Anne, we will be with you tomorrow and sending all our good vibes, prayers, and hugs all day long. Keep bundled up in that quilt and reminding yourself you are loved well!!!

FROGGIE I am just naturally brilliant at looking things up on Google. Hehehe

Thanks, Carol, that was so sweet you made me cry! 

Did you already know that, Beth, or look it up? I didn't know that! 

I don't think I have any fusible interfacing. Or interfacing at all. I do have some fusible mesh stabilizer I am thinking about using for the bags. I cut out four this morning, and found four zippers! And I cut out two pincushions. I will hand stitch them in the evening. I'm going to test the stabilizer and see how it works.

Hi guys.  Yes, hanging in.  Getting ready for tomorrows 2nd infusion. Let's hope they go easy on me...and next week will be better.  Thel, i think I'll horrow and  bring the prayer quilt along with me and cuddle in it.  I'm sure it will be bice and warm.

Thought id be able to measure and cut out some fusiable  and start my little purse, but that, too will have to wait.

Had some pretty rough winds this morning around here..but, now its nice and warm...we do have the AC on, in the house.  BBL.Anne
