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!

  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!

Very nicely done, Carol. I'd say you nailed every one of the requirements. Perfect design to include your letter.

I couldn't get on here at noon. I think Ning was tricking me. I think it's about 30 here all day. Pretty cold. It was hot in B Sew Inn,of course. And I dressed in lots of layers. I kept peeling them off. Not too many.

Too bad you didn't see that woman from Mustang, Kim. We look different, ya know. I crack me up.

Dreaming about those chocolate balls rolling all over couldn't have been much fun, Marge. Sometimes I used to dream about work, and ask my boss if I could take that as OT. I crack me up again.

I was wondering about the landlord case, MaryAgnes. Hurry up and wait.

I don't remember Harry and David from WA. What am I missing anyway? I better go google them.

Callie is a cutie, Thel. I like that name. She looks groggy.

I went to sit and sew, and didn't do a thing to help with the quilt making. I just didn't feel like it! I ate, talked, and walked around and did their scavenger hunt, which was to look for machine codes on the back of machines. I got tired of doing that and sat down and googled the codes! I crack me up. Now I am waiting for pizza.

I was going to share a pic of Chocolate's stocking. Almost forgot that.

Most of you will recognize the traditional "Sunflower" block on the barn.  That isn't a locomotive coming toward you!  I'm considering whether to keep the button in the center or not -- whatcha think?

Oh, and they had to be quilted (well, duh!)  But that was written in the directions.

I mentioned earlier this week that I was working on a Challenge Quilt for an upcoming quilt show April 1.  The quilts had to be finished by January 15 (yea!  I'm early - won't qualify for the Procrastinators Quilting Club) and there were a few rules.

The quilt had to be no smaller than 14" x 14", and no larger than 24" x 24".  Mine is 19 x 20".  It is supposed to reflect the theme of the quilt show, which is "Quilting in the Sun Country" AND include a letter of the alphabet, which I had previously drawn from the jelly jar.  I drew "X".  You letter wasn't supped to be obvious, but recognizable in your design.

So here's my entry:

and the label on the back.

I've decided while baby is still young to change her name to my first instinct .  She is now Callie (cause she's calico).  No hassles fro next door today, so maybe Bella's mom decided to drop it.  

She just woke up from a nap with a full tummy so a little groggy, but I love this picture.

Boy this is sure being dragged out Mary Agnes.  So sorry for your stress. 

I used to like going to the Harry and David store in Boston with hubby.  We'd stay in a penthouse suite for a few day during Christmas Time and enjoy the time relaxing and just playing.    OH,  the memories !!

My MIL used to make fruit cakes for everyone.  We accepted them gracefully,  but they were horrible.  I don't think anyone ever told her because she got such joy from doing it.

Whoa Thel. Glad you got your packages from the post office before it got so cold out. I haven't found your get up and go hiding anywhere around here.

I'm thinking( but could be totally wrong) that's it's good the judge didn't dismiss your answer like the landlord wanted Mary Agnes.

I have to place an order with Harry and David. I get the fruit of the month clubfor both my Mom and my Dad. It's something I know they enjoy getting each month.

And then I order a fruit cake for myself. I love their fruit cake and since I'm the only one who likes it, I don't have to share. Mom and I did go to the actual store while shopping on Tuesday and I got the Moose Munch for DS stocking. He loves that.

I've got to look up how to poach pears. Seems like it requires red wine?? I'd like to try it.

Why do the wheels of justice turn so slowly? Sure hope the judge sees it your way Mary Agnes ... and... tells the landlord you need a bigger apt at your current rent.

I didn't have any chocolate footballs in my boxes. There wasn't any plastic either. Just cardboard. The pears look fantastic.

Oh what memories you've brought, Marge. We used to frequent the 'surplus' store when it opened in the late fall. They sold the extra supplies at really good prices that we used to make various crafts. What a fun place it was. What are the chances our paths may have crossed way back when. ...

Cold here as well. Am jealous of Cora, I can see Vancouver Island from our island but we were missed with the snow. It is predicted for us later today but not likely to stay around very long. Just so pretty after the first snowfall.

Gotta get going, run some errands then get to the quilting frame/machine. Have two to get loaded and quilted.
