Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

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 the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a 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.

Good morning. Another hot one. Icky Icky, Hot and Sticky.

I can't believe I forgot to get catfood yesterday. Another trip to town, ugh. 

Beth, hope all goes well with your surgery. Pretests are one of those necessary evils. Sorry about the barn downing. I hope they are at least saving the usable wood to be used in another building. 

Hope you survive your outside experience, Mary Agnes. Lucky Chou. 

Glad you are getting meals on wheels, Thel. Sounds like they have yummy food in store. Hope your first meal is a chicken salad sammie and fruit salad.

Beth - thinking of you.  Hope your test today is not too unpleasant and that your surgery on Friday gives you welcome relief.  Hugs and prayers.

Good morning Gifties!

Beth, I hope all goes well with the test today. I agree with you about the barn. I know some are so dilapidated they have to be torn down, however, it feels like a loosing a piece of history. That wood is probably old growth and possibly be oak, walnut, etc. Truly, it is sad.

Mary Agnes, your evening experience sounds delightful! There are many good things about living in the city to be sure. But, all that pavement really keeps the area hot and I feel for ya today. Hope your adventure outing is brief.

Good Morning from hot and steamy NYC.  We sat in the shade by the river earlier and it was lovely but once we walked a block toward home the heat struck.  I've got to go out in a little while.  Chou doesn't know how lucky he is to have to stay home in the AC.

I hope you'll be sewing this afternoon in AC, Beth.  Good luck with the test.

I'll BBL, if I don't perish of heat stroke first.

Beth, I think I may have missed something about your surgery. I hope all goes well and that it's just routine type stuff.

Good Morning.  I am looking out the window at my neighbors yard.  He is having an 1880s barn town down... I am REALLY SAD.  It was a wonderful old building. 

And... on top of that I am off to the hospital shortly to have one more test done before they do the surgery on Friday.  

SO I plan to reward myself by sewing all afternoon.

I know I have my suggestible moments.......but geeze the gal comes here on just about the hottest day of the season so far and I hadn't had lunch yet. They she starts talking about chicken salad sammies and fresh fruit salad. How could a girl not want some !
I need to do some research on what flea treatments are acceptable for my 14 week old itty Ms JuneBug. No one else in the house has fleas yet she still has some. I gave her a bath with a flea & tick shampoo just 2 days ago and there are still some on her and they're making little sore spots. I've been using a bit of neosporin on the spots. Any ideas of a concoction I might make with home supplies until I can get something made special for the purpose. I've combed with a flea comb and think I may have gotten most.
Never ending little challenges.

What else is the floor for, Froggie.  You remind me of The Odd Couple, Oscar, Oscar, Oscar!!

You are so suggestible, Thel, but, then, aren't we all when it comes to good food.  I'd never have thought of cucumber water but now I want some. Oh, and I'll take a bushel of the peaches.  It's so hard to find good peaches.  I remember when Long Island was famous for their peaches. I wonder if there's even one orchard left.

Great tablet rest, ranchmom. You're so clever with the beans, and it could double as a bean bag for Malia.

No finishing bug today, but I did take a lovely nap this afternoon.  Blame it on Barbara.

I gotta get me some maters at the Farmer's Market.  The ones in the supermarket never taste like they did off the vine in the backyard.

I got a lesson in needle turn applique this afternoon from a woman at my Auspicious Stitches group.  She's appliqueing her interpretation of the "Becoming Another" Mask exhibit  currently at the Rubin Museum.  She sure does lovely work.

Editing, Mari! You crack me up. I need to edit bad. I kept knocking things on the floor today. I kept thinking, at least I will know where to find it again. I'm working hard on FFFing. 

You made up a new word, Barbara, freat. hehee. I would love some fresh yummy peaches, please. I hope you don't get the brine in the peaches and the butter and sugar in the pickle relish. Yukc. 

Cucumber water is so good! My niece made lemon and mint water on Saturday, it was very good, too. 

She shouldn't have told you about the chicken salad sammich, Thel!  Yum. 

The July little is almost finished. If the embroidery machine had behaved, the label would be done, and I would be hand stitching right now. I better take her for a spa day.
