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.

Pie and Ice Cream.....................I want some.  Any kinda pie, any ice cream.  Bring it on. 

My sweet little Ki-Ki has really gotten into my heart; the side effects of fostering.  I've been trying to hard to figure out her digestion schedule.  Tonight she got some free range play time and was so happy to wander around the house.   What is the right choice for her future,  I still don't know.  BUT I love her so much. 

I apologize.  I'm animal obsessed.

I never thought of that, Cora. That's really too bad. But you can start a new tradition of saving and sharing info you have. 

Lou Ann, you are one rebel, aren't you? You really have some great stories. 

I want a pastry now. Good thing we baked a pie, it's about time to have a piece. 

Don't you just know, we have some sons of guns in our family too, MaryAgnes! 

That grotto is amazing! Let's go for a virtual visit together. 

The project today was zipper bags, we made three. I think our machine was posessed, it had some problems. we told the employees that the service guy needs to look at it. I hope he does. The bags are cute, I can make some more at home. Plus I picked up my upgrade for the wifi in my machine. I am excited! That one will be fun. 

I better get a slice of that pie. With some ice cream.

Yes Rita,  I actually have two boots because both feet were a mess.  One of them has the pump.   I would get the boot on and all strapped up and then use the pump until I could feel the pressure.  If I remember correctly after a year, then there was a knob of sorts to tighten to keep it pumped up.  Then to remove it, turn the knob counter clockwise and the pressure was released. 

I hope you're feeling some better each day Rita.

Oh Deborah, I am sure you have many kindred spirits here  for procrastinators, and mix  in a few overachievers, and you have us. sometimes we even change positions just to make it interesting, I am on here more than usual, because I am stuck on my rear for 4-6 weeks., actually 32 more days, but who is counting. 

Thel did you ortho boot have the little pump up bladders on the sides, I can't seem to get them right.

That was awesome Thel! I've never seen that instrument played before.

Rita, amazing!

Deborah, shell grotto is a new one on me. 

We sure do get an education here don't we? ☺

You know what? I love you all !!!!

Yup, baked. But what you picture as elephant ears Mary Agnes, I call pastry hearts, but they usually have powdered sugar icing.

Wow Deborah.   That has to be breath taking in person.  Thanks for sharing.

I have to share this short clip with you. It was in The Quilt Show's latest newsletter. Astounding!

Wow Rita,  that's pretty amazing. 

Deborah,  I'm a home body so try to check in frequently.  It can be a lot to read after a day.    I'm thinking we'd have a contest with the "procrastination".  I'm pretty good at I myself.    I blame it on the furr herd as often as possible.  Everyone is sleeping in various places around the house and someone always wants to be in my lap (a very justifiable excuse not to get up).  lol

Thanks, Thel, it was beautiful. 

OK, I've either got to keep up better or just skip some pages. I spent 2 hours today catching up when I should have been doing some much needed chores around here. But here I am again! Oh, well. Did I ever tell you I was world famous for procrastination?
