Welcome to Gifty Galore 2014!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

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 Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 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.

First one done. Probably the only one tonight. But I want one for the other car, the handicap van and I thought 3 for my grandsons and maybe one for my daughter.

Diane, it used to be my thing. I raised my kids doing fashion sewing for people. Some can be a real pain though. She's going to love it, and that is what you cling to while doing it.

Karla, I have learned 2 things about this website. You know the first - go to another page and you lose everything you've typed. Also, if you are or ever will use a laptop, just touching the touchpad, will erase, go to another place, or many other ways to mess up your post. I use the mouse anyway, so my DDIL told me that I could deactivate the touchpad (every time I start it tells me so I don't worry about it) and I had to find the right key, but it is among the red keys at the top. If you find it is still on, push your key again and push another. I haven't lost a post since. So, it is really your computer and not the website. We just use this more often and tend to blame it when we forget something:-)

Froggie no need to apologize. You did not make me sick the fish did! After I pinned up the hem on the wedding dress I had the bride to be come over  . . Thank Goodness! The original hem was not even and if I had cut it I would have had a ruined gown! I am working on it again tonight. This is so not my thing!

They didn't break into her home, Froggie. They broke into her studio. Separate places, I'm thinking. She's offering a reward of $1000.

Barbara, love your projects!  That house with the sheep is too cute, and so this that pillow.

Got all my fabric cut out, now to start sewing.  Whew!  Finally get to the fun part!  I also got all the laundry done before any rain fall came.  Still waiting on that rain Froggie.

Turkey sounds fabulous!  I've been wanting to bake a turkey to debone and store in the freezer for later use, but it's too hot to think about baking a turkey.

2nd time in a month she's been stolen!  Wow! Hope she installed security cameras.  Yep, time to move.

National Weather Service confirmed it was a EF2, only on ground for 4 minutes but hundreds of homes and businesses damaged.  No injuries which was great news.  30,000 without power, most restored by now.  !st reported tornado in Boston area since they started keeping records in 1950.  

Karla- will have to shore up my plans.  I'll drop you a message in your "inbox" when I'm more certain what I'm up to.

Karla, there are gremlins that like to do strange things with messages sometimes.

Very nice projects, Barbara! I especially love the fall wall hanging.

I'm sorry, Diane, I don't want to talk about something that makes you sick! I think Mr. Bullfrog ate too much, or two much fried, his stomach didn't like it much. That's all I am going to say. ewwwwww....

I saw that tornado, Anne, that is crazy. I think they said it's the first tornado since 1950.

That is terrible, Sheila, what kind of person breaks into houses, much less to steal quilts? I hope they get caught.

I hope you get rain, Mary Alice, you need it bad.

Cute pillow, Barbara!

I got my hair cut and colored today, and I am feelin' good. And it's DGS1's 17th birthday! He has practice all day, too. I still have to figure out how long to cook the turkey breasts I bought. The kitchen is going to get hot. I bought a cake that he asked for, so I am about ready to go. I better get hoppin', to make sure I have everything I need, and see if DGS2 is coming over. Sis in law is coming.
