Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using one book this year (and there's a surprise about that!), Anita's wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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.

Lucky you, Debra.  I have some samples of tapestry from the Fashion Institute of Technology and haven't come up with what to do with them yet. I've had them for years already.

We were supposed to have a thunderstorm this evening but it never materialized.  We (Chouchou, my friend Karen and I) took a walk to the river and had a beer while we watched a gorgeous sunset over New Jersey.

A whole week of sunshine, Mari? We are supposed to have that too, starting Sunday. Texas and OK both are getting slammed!

I hope I didn't make mother nature mad, either, Debra. We have had way too much rain, we can have some dry for a while. We are out of the drought, though. There's a small part of the state that is still in a drought, though. They can have my rain.

I bet that tapestry samples would be great for bags. I love tapestry fabric. Maybe I should put that on my list of fabric that I need.

We got the lawn mower back today. It runs great. Now to wait for the lawn to dry out. The grass will be so long by the time we can mow.

Barbara, those T-storms don't sound good... I can't believe TX is having so much rain. It just seems weird for Texas.

Debra, tapestry samples are perfect for bags! What a find! (or gift)

Good morning all.

All this crazy weather someone made mother nature mad. It wasn't me. At least I don't think so. Lol

Going to town again today. A dear friend gave Me a humongous box of tapestry samples. Went yesterday looking for webbing, but none to be found. I guess I will have to make handles myself. Planning on making purses. Bbl 

Going to pay bills. And get some interfacing to strengthen the handles.

Good Morning.

Pretty morning here, too, Mari. T-storms predicted for tonight. Hope everyone in TX can get some relief from all that rain. Just saw on the AM news that the Boston snow is still melting. What wild weather we are experiencing.

I have quilt club this afternoon. Should be able to pick up my June design pack for the ME also. Whee...

Morn'in everyone! It's a lovely day in the neighborhood today. We are expecting a full week of sun! Wahoo! I'll get my Vit D all week without paying for it!

Agnes, thanks again!

What a cute baby quilt and matching tote! It's a great idea to use your extra blocks to make something useful.

Gray alien babies? The things that happen around here when I go to college for the day! I tried to sign up for classes, but DGS1 blocked me and knocked me on the floor! Hehee.

Call Javier, Mary Alice, that would be better on your muscles than mowing yourself.

Nosey, Agnes? Oh goodie, we need more people like you around here. Sanity savers? DGS1 got a stress card today. Usually mine will turn blue. Today, black. Nothing but black. I think I need more quilting time. DGS1 is now enrolled for the fall semester, and we are all set!

I love this camel picture!  So awesome!

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario yesterday

Mari--"Oh, so sorry Agnes. I didn't think you were on Gifty! " Nothing to be sorry about. I just signed up recently, being nosey, more than anything. I have been downsizing in many ways over recent years and the downsizing has really drastically hit the size of quilts I am willing to make. I will, however, maintain that my hobbies are my sanity savers so I am taking more note of smaller projects that might possibly be good in hospital/cancer care clinic gift shops.

Congratulations on the sale of your quilts Debra!  Awesome!

Carol, love the baby quilt and baby tote.  Love those fabrics!

Yardwork this morning.  Hurting and have muscle spasms.  Guess I've got to get myself back into the yard work swing, cause I'm falling apart here.   Started the day at 5am, had breakfast and got ready to go outside and mow the lawn.  Darn lawn mower wouldn't start.  Decided to take out electric weed whacker and trim edges.  Was all over the yard edges, around rose bushes, around fencing, and 3 hours later I was beat!  My brother is supposed to come over tomorrow to help me get lawn mower started.  Seriously wondering if it's time for me to call Javier and ask him how much he'd charge me to  mow the lawn, weed whack, and use the blower on sidewalks.  At least twice a month.

I think I'm going to treat myself to some shopping on CT for my hard work today.
