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.

Froggie, That tree skirt is fit for a queen (or king) sized tree! I have 4 trees, the largest of which is about 6 ft across at the bottom. That skirt ought to be just about right. Awesome!
Mari, the butterfly quilt is all ME blocks from a swap on the ME Buddies forum here on CT. it's about 36 x 48 & is a wall hanging. I've got an Owl ME block swap up next for quilting but, 'LL is right behind that.
So, so sorry about Big Red, Barbara. I've lost 3 in the last year. They have a way of letting you know when it's time, though.
Mary Alice, where you getting the space craft? It'll come in handy during bad weather. Can I drive?

Aw, TJ looks too cute in that picture!  He's taking a little siesta by the quilt, which his paw indicates "it's all mine" that he's saying.

Make sure cursor is down a line or two from last comment to get pictures at the end.

How do I get my photo to be at the end of my comments?

Debra, I really like you quilt.  Your DGD is going to love it.

Well I finished cleaning the kitchen, then fixed dinner for everyone and cleaned up that mess just went in to sew on my quilt and found TJ.  I guess I will work on cutting out this weeks gifty project.

Froggie, the tree skirt is beautiful!  It looks like it is edged in gold.  A nice pic of your DD too. I'm sure she is loving it.

Barbara,  I'm so sorry to hear about Big Red.  You already know that you have made the right decision, but I know how lonely it's going to be for you in the coming days.  I still miss my fur babies and they've been gone for several yrs. now.

Mari, don't even mention cleaning!  I have to do that too!

Had my 2nd cousin show me a Rainbow vacuum. What an embarrassment to see what my Dyson didn't get.  I bought a new vacuum, so I get to use that for cleaning tomorrow, plus we are irrigating as well.  But I really have to get all these chores done to enjoy my entire Bernina Sewpalooza day on Thursday from 9am to 5pm.

The spaceship and I will pick you up Mary Agnes.

Barbara, so sorry to hear about Big Red.  Such a hard decision, but it's much harder watching them suffer and not have the quality of life they deserve.

Froggie, goodness!  Does that skirt belong on a giant Christmas tree?  

I've been outside mowing the lawn, weed whacking, and hanging laundry outside.  I'm tired, and my lower back is hurting.  Even the 800 mg of Ibuprofen the doctor prescribed for my tooth isn't touching the pain in my back.  My tooth is throbbing a bit too.  I'm thinking root canal.  But still have 6  days of meds (including Amoxicillin) to take before seeing the doctor on Monday. 

I'm too wiped to sew.  I'm ready for a shower and a nap.
