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.

Ohh!  Ohh!  Mari, that is just the cutest wool bunny ever, fringed scarf and all.  How big is the block?

Good morning everyone! Well, I just lost my post, so here I go again!

Mary Agnes, I miss you to and I've got to fix that!

Froggie, speaking of internet and quilt blogs, I signed up for a couple of wool applique Facebook pages. Was so tired to getting political posts in my feed I'm not getting wool applique projects in my feed! Wahoo! They are so inspiring they got me back on those projects and I'm having so much fun with them. The latest completed project is at the top. Froggie, you're the best!

Oh, Barbara, your poor kitty!

Mary Alice, good luck with all those chores. It's like the list of things to do are never ending, huh?

Thel, good morning!

Well, I have some designing to do. Got started on a new collection but am not coming up with the right combinations to make me happy with it. I know there is a block out there that will make it sing, I just know it! BBL!

Good morning,  the SUN is shining !!!!!   woohoo

That sounds like such a fun time Carol Ann.   Are your ribs sore from all the giggling?  

Good luck with the wellness challenge Kim.  

Mom was quite the nut with the internet.   She ended up with bad eyesight so she was always hitting keys in who  know what combinations and locking her computer up.  But she kept at it and enjoyed herself.  Yup,  praising the lord,  fishing,  singing,  dogs, her kids and grandkids. 

That doctor would drive me crazy too.   Geeze,  how can men take things in such stride.  

Ohhhh,   poor beanie.  Prayers for the sweetie to get well quickly.  OUCH a hot in the knew doesn't sound like fun. 

I say yes on bathing Mitzie,  but if she fights back and doesn't want it to happen the stress might be too much for her.  Maybe a good brushing would be a good start.  Sometimes a cat will do better with a sponge bath, even just with warm wet cloth.  Mostly depends on if she cooperates.  I'd make sure she's good and dry as quickly as possible.  I need to brush my 10 year old often.  He doesn't keep up with his grooming like he used to. 

well,  coffee is gone,  so time to think about doing something.

Doctors--ugh.  I really need to get moving on getting some lab work done now that mom is able to walk on her own and her hand is healing well.  Also need to get in touch with Sleep Doctor and check in with him.  Hoping to get my CPAP supplies soon, I need new disposable filters.

Good morning all!  Checking in today as yesterday was a super busy day doing chores here at home.  I spent last week being a slug because of the rain and wind, and yesterday  paid for it with 5 loads of laundry and hanging clothes outside.  Today and tomorrow should be ugly and windy.  Hip is hurting today.  Weather man states it'll be getting colder as week progresses--bummer.  Although we'll have sunny days, mornings are still going to be in upper 20s and lower 30s.  

Wow!  Lots of catching up to do!!  

Barbara, I've not even started the Sugar blocks from last year, or this year.  They are wonderful looking  blocks though.  Trying to get a few things completed so I can move on.  Yesterday I finished quilting my February table runner, I hope to take picture later and post.

I found a website called jordanfabrics.com and they sell precut quilt kits.   They look nice and I'm thinking of ordering a table runner to check out their quality. Table runners come with borders and backing, the quilt kits do not sadly. But I like their Youtube videos.

When there are problems very often you have to go to the top and let it filter down. Complaining to the person who is creating the problem and her cohorts will get you nothing but frustration.

Good morning, all!  Sunshine, glorious sunshine!  When I went out to pick up the paper, there was the tiniest sliver of a crescent moon hanging in the southwestern sky.  Life is good!

Sorry you are having so much trouble with that doctor's office.  Sometimes a doctor's staff can do him more harm than good.  They can, however, make life pretty difficult for a patient who really needs their cooperation.  Sometimes office staff doesn't remember what their job is.

Mitzie is cranky this morning; I don't know why.  She has been doing so well lately.  Thel, is it okay to bathe an old cat?  Her coat is getting very "ratty", and she doesn't seem to take care of it as well as she used to.

15-2; 15-4; and a double run for 8 makes 12. I love Cribbage, Marilyn. Maybe we could make a date sometime. I play it on the Kindle a lot.

Good morning. Got the QOV top finished so I"ll be taking it over to them today. Been a while since I visited the gals.

This afternoon I am getting a shot in my knee that has been giving me fits the past few weeks. Hope it does the trick.

Beanie cat isn't feeling well. I noticed his face seemed swollen last night and felt a bite mark near his ear. So he got a dose of antibiotic. This morning he didn't even wake me up and didn't want to go outside. He did eat so that's good.

Doctor's don't always know  what goes on in the reception area. Hope you let the DR know next time DGS has an appointment. Any complaints to the receptionist probably won't go far.
