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!

I forgot to say, big quilty hugs and prayers for you and your DH, Cindy. 

That is very impressive, Agnes. That baby will be very cute. 

I love it, Amy! The ME is great, they will love it. 

Yeah, I will be excited to see what you come up with Mari! Thanks. 

Oh good, DH is home, sometimes I feel scrambled too. I don't know how these things work in our bodies, don't really want to either, but it sure is amazing. 

Good idea, Mary Alice, get those machines set up so you can sew all evening. Are you giving away your fabric? Just keep what you really like and think you will use, that's a great idea. 

I can't get the video to play, Thel. It keeps spinning. Probably my internet. I do have nice, fast, lightning speed internet you know. I bet they loved it. 

I have been working on some blocks to go with some ME snowmen I stitched a while ago. I still haven't figured out how big the quilt will end up, I am just making enough blocks to go with the snowmen and see where I end up. That sounds like something Myra would do.

Lots of prayers for hubby and you Cindy.  Thankfully he's home.  Must be a day of rest for you both. 

The retreat sounds like it was a great time Mari.  

Love the crane and the baby waiting to be stuffed.  I've done a couple small ones like the baby in the past.  They are such fun.  A friend of mine has a small dog frame that I've tried to coerce out of her with no luck. 

Love that table topper.  My book is on the way to me. 

Love the runner Amy.  Nice job.  I'm sure they'll love it. 

What an awesome relief the weather is today.  First overcast cool day in over a week and a half.  It's 85° and feels spectacular. 

My pups had their first significant  Fun Time  in their new kennel last evening.  They're very curious and investigative.  It's so much fun to watch them realizing it's their space. 

Love the flowers today.  I don't really have any new ones to share.

Hello everyone!

Love everyone's flower contributions!  Love that crinkly white one!

Prayers sent Cindy for you and family.  Glad he's home.  Get some rest!  Nothing worse than spending half the night in ER wondering what's happening.  

Mari, I love that table topper!  I need  to make one of those!  I still can't find a spot for my machine!  Darn it!  I'm more or less thinking  Epic and Juki 2010Q will be housed in the living room by windows because I get some good light in there.  Will save the sewing room for the cutting table and Accuquilt Go stuff plus office space.  Will give the big closet to mom's pantry--that woman collects canned goods like mad!  I don't even use canned veggies or fruits!  But it's her fettish.

Also decided to down size considerably my fabric stash and kits to only what fits in my built in shelves in my bedroom.  It seriously time to downsize and just make some room to enjoy our living spaces clutter free.  Mom is having some issues with everything being tossed or given away, but it can't be helped if I want to de-clutter.

Oh the new project is the one I wish was available by kit. I hope I have some good pieces in my stash.

Oooo, very pretty Myra!

Cindy, you and hubby are in my thoughts. It's good that he's home.

Well, we finally got some rain today! It's been raining on and off since early this morning. Along with thunder and lightning and the occasional sirens. I probably shouldn't even be on the computer. Just had a loud clap of thunder with lightning that made me jump in my chair! I did unplug the sewing machine first thing.

That is what my undersea wall hanging is that I posted last week . They are sew much fun. The new one I have for this year's RXR is a neat farm scene. Then I have the Crabapple Hill Fall/halloween one to makd plus a couple Christmas. I also embellish with beads and stuff.

Neat runner,Amy. The kds should love it.

Love the different takes for flower Monday. Cool.

Good morning all. A quick check in for now, but will be back later. Hubby is doing okay. Had, in laymen's terms, a problem with the main nerve coming from his neck. Some reason things were scrambled (for lack of a better term) and not communicating correctly. Sent him home around 2 am (we be tired) told to watch him as it could affect his heart. He seems to be back to his old self , but gotta get more sleep.

Froggie, I can do something for us about what I learned. Sure, of course!

Amy, you are welcome! Is that a quilt you made? It looks like snowflakes. Cute!

Agnes, thank you for the explanation of the topiaries! That is quite fascinating!

Mari--Great to hear you had a wonderful retreat. The cranes in the photo are a form of topiary. They are based on a Japanese species, counterpart to the North American Sandhill crane. This little park celebrates the sister cities of Kiroshi, Japan and Burnaby, BC featuring Japanese totems and these sculptures. The inside of a metal shape is packed with moss and other growing mediums before the plants are inserted and then pruned all summer to keep the form. Here's a photo f the baby, not yet filled. You can see the adult beak poking down at it.I am very impressed by the gardeners and designers that do the designs.
