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.

AHA! THAT's why Mr Bullfrog doesn't notice stuff, Froggie! He's in need of an eye exam! Do I crack you up? Silly you - using Mr Snowman's blue! It'll be okay - honest - didn't you know that snowmen are color-blind?? Yep! Great projects.

Froggie, great projects!  I love them! I've not done any of my Patrick Lose mug rugs.  I'm so bad.

Haven't done the tissue box cover either, even though I should have the design.  

Mary Agnes, enjoy Florida!!

Yea, that's funny, Debra! On the road to recovery!

Maybe your snowman should be blue. I like a light blue snowman, not the towel.

Oh how nice, MaryAgnes! Tampa for Christmas! Have fun, and try and keep Chouchou out of trouble.

I finished the December mug mats today, and finished my snowman tissue cover. The snowman's scarf was going to be light blue and dark blue, but someone used the fabrics for the mug rugs instead of the fabrics for the snowman's scarf! Who would do that?

 And I forgot to get a pic of DD1's pillowcases, so I will have her send one after she opens it.

I have to take Mr. Bullfrog to get his eyes tested, then we are picking up something for dinner.

Hello from Tampa, Florida.  I drove down with my snow bunny friend who will be here all winter.  I'll be here until the 26th.  Chouchou is with me but he and the three resident cats haven't become friends yet.  Don't know if they ever will.  Chou loves all the new sights and smells.  It's gonna be a nice week.  My friend has 8 guests coming on Christmas Eve and her sister will be here on Monday.  I'm going to try to get up to Tallahassee but after two days in the car I don't know if I want to do another eight.

Morning!  CT and QWU is up!  It's gonna be a good day!

Mary and Barbara, I'll have to try that light blue snowman.  The only towels I have on hand are white with trim or a red/white checkered.   Didn't Ranchmom make dish towels with some of her fabric stash?  I could find some blue and do that, would that work?  I'd probably have to  embroider the snowman, then cut to size and put two pieces of fabrics together and sew around the edges, and flip out and topsitch edges.  That might work.

Barbara, thank goodness your chili turned out okay.  I need to make some, and even have cornbread mix to make some cornbread to go with it too.

Pecans, sigh, I need to make pecan pies for mom and a good friend, who was a co-worker.  Monday I'll be heading to my cousin's house to make homemade tamales, pan de huevo (Mexican sweet bread usually called Conchas in the store), and champurrado (a hot chocolate drink).

Good morning all!

I saw this on Facebook on a shirt;

I'm a fabricoaholic

On the road to recovery

Just kidding

I'm on the road to the fabric shop.

That's me.

May all your ups and downs be in stitches.
