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.

Next week I will be married 43 years as well....can't imagine where the years went....my sister has the right idea....her birthday is January 30, but she declared January  her birthday month....so everyday is her birthday..mine is in December so it is too hard to claim it my month alone!

Not sure what's happened to Javier??  He's called to say he couldn't make it on Monday, Tuesday he said it was windy, today he hasn't called at all.  He's already scraped walls and put silicon seal on all cracks on our double adobe walls with plaster.  He's put cement on the bigger spots and where he had to put up a new kitchen breather tube.  I figured after all that, painting would be a breeze.  He's got a sprayer for the paint. 

If Javier shows up tomorrow, he'll be smelling lunch but nothing else.  I'm planning a fresh pot of  beans, rice, and perhaps some chili rellenos. 

Barbara, embroidery does take forever to stitch out!  Post pictures!  I want to do that one some day.  I know each block of HS Sewn Seeds is taking me about a half day to do.  Considering I'm STILL on month one of the 3 different blocks (4 blocks of block 1, 12 blocks of block 2, and 20 blocks of block 3....I may never finish this quilt!  Is it any wonder I keep starting something else!

Sheila, I think your 42 year anniversary should be celebrated for several days or a week!  It's very rare to find a couple who's truly endured a long marriage.  It's obvious you have done something right!

Congrats Sheila. Quite an accomplishment. Now to figure out a hobby that will keep him busy. Is there a JR. College nearby that offers senior citizen classes? 

The camels are looking good. I loved MS April Fool's camel on the Littles site.

No more chili rellenos for Javier. Is it the wind that's keeping it too dusty to paint? Or did he find a taquila bottle somewhere?

I got another section of the Les Fleurs ME panel done. Sure takes a long time to stitch out. I managed to put borders on a small (39" sq.) log cabin quilt top that has been moldering in the ufo pile for too long. Watched the April Jinny Beyer BOM video and printed out the materials. I still have to do March. Maybe tomorrow.

Sure has been warm today. The Weatherperson is threatening t-storms tonight. Guess it will be mowing season soon.

Froggie, you're right, no booze here...

Well, Sheila, you two have certainly managed something right to make it to 42 years!

Holy cow Mary Alice, another day Javier missed? I wonder if he really wants to do it...

Love those camels Mary Agnes!  Is that the economy taxi service??

Congratulations Sheila!  42 years!  Golly, I can't even begin to imagine that! 

Mari, sorry you didn't sleep well.  Those kinds of nights are awful!  I'm not a good sleeper myself as I'm up at least 3 times a night, and I got to bed after 10, which seems to work better for me.

Well another day my house is still waiting to get painted.  It was nice this morning, but windy now.  Figures, didn't know what to do, so I went  outside and washed my mom's truck.  Looks good as new!  

I think I'm going to have to break down and invest in a new vehicle myself.  The oil gage and fuel gage seem to be going up and down all the time, so not quite sure if it needs stuff or just isn't reading it right anymore.  Wonder how much it would be to get new gages???  Probably cheaper to get a new vehicle.

Thanks everyone. Since he seems to be home all of the time, I'm not sure if it's good or not! Remember, I'm used to him being gone for long stretches and even after he retired, he worked such odd hours that I became the owner of the remote. Now? Not so much. He's in my way in the mornings and he & puppy drive me nuts at night. I think he must be taking naps during the day. He's going to have to find a hobby before I shoot him.

Tourist camels in NYC! Wow! Well, guess they'll fit right in, huh, Mary Agnes?

I agree, the piecing is the funnest part. Sorry, MaryAgnes. Most fun?

That is a lot of thinking, MaryAgnes, I think kits are stash.

I don't think Mari gets to drink booze at work. Stupid late meetings.

~Hopppy anniversary, Sheila~

what's the camels doing in NYC? Are they tourists? Are they going to the City Quilter?

I am tired today, commissary, then the Cox guy came out. Our setup is bad, we need to upgrade some stuff, apparently. I just want to go play in the quilting room and let someone else figure out the technical stuff.

Cindy, you are SO right! I had a bit of whisky at home too. My bad, again!

Sheila, congrats to you and hubby! Wow, 42 years, impressive, very impressive!

Mary Agnes, thanks for the cover!
