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.

Good Morning Gifties.

Yes, the concert was spectacular.  

You won't believe what my friend Emily and I are going to do.  We're going to take a table at the 6th Borough Market next month.  It's in Jersey City which calls itself the 6th Borough because they wish they were part of NYC which has 5 boroughs.  Anyway, all the stuff I've been stockpiling for years (coasters, bookmarks, doilies, etc) and Emily's books and bags which she's been making for years will be on display and if we're lucky someone will buy them.  Anyone ever do this before?  Any advice?

Rain is good.  Hope it puts out the fires.

oh-oh, anyone heard from Ranchmom?  I hope the fires are no where near her.  

Okay Froggie, I had to order some boo fabrics cause  your little house is so stinkin" cute!  Also got some batiks to try this purse again.  It looks good, but trying to get those grommets through all those thicknesses is a bear!  I'm wondering if it'll hold up to the wear and tear.  Ordered this week's project too!

I have been thinking about where Cindy is and how her home is coming along.

Haven't heard from Lou Ann, where is she?

Popping in as I shop at CT.

Hush puppies, Daddy!!!

Hi everyone!  Wow!  That camel picture was great Mari!  That was me packing mom up and driving down the road to make it our hair appt on time.  You know, before I retired I got everywhere 30 minutes early.  Now that I have to pack mom up I get there late. 

Went to SAMS and bought some supplies for a few months!  Got home and decided to make the red plums they gave us into jam.  Only got 6 pints done, but then it's only mom and myself.  I've made apricot, strawberry and plum jams this year!  Who know when I retired I'd be making jams (never having made any in my life before!).  All I need now is a super duper pressure cooker, and I can be putting up some good viddles for winter!  LOL! Nah, I won't pressure can anything...too afraid of the huge pressure cooker. Actually, mom has a huge pressure cooker in the shed, might need a new seal, but it should still be good.

I need to head to the farmer's market when tomatoes are available as I REALLY need to make some tomato jelly.  That was my favorite as a kid.   That and mom's apple butter. We did our own Mexican version of a PBJ--tortilla, peanut butter and jam, roll it up and yummy!

Mary Agnes, sounds like a great concert! 

Orange and Silver???  Maybe a grease lightning kind of wedding?  I love the license plate name tags!  Take pictures Diane!

Had a relaxing hour at the salon getting hair cut & catching up on gossip. Then stopped at LJS & brought home fish & hushpuppies for dinner. Now I'm full, settled in on the couch & getting ready to finish a book while the cat bumps his head on my hand insisting I snuggle. Works for me.

You must have been typing on my fingers, MaryAgnes. Oh well, one thing is not bad. I bet the concert was fun.

Yeah, where is Lou Ann? Oh come home, Lou Ann, we miss you!

Oh no, gremlins taking over again.

Those waffles sound delicious, Kathy! And I bet it was a sight to see the camel on the broom! You crack me up.

My pool has warmed up again, I got to swim, it was so nice. We are going to pick up Chinese food tonite, yum. And I don't have to cook.
