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.

Diane, good to see you back!!! I also love this week's project.  Ordered everything I need for it yesterday from CT.  Trying to build my fabric collection.  I'm not good at picking solids or tonals, wish they came in FQ bundles.

Froggie,  I LOVE your new dream machine!  It's stitching out nicely too!

I think those camels are hollering "Way to go! Froggie!"  Woohoo!

 Wish we had a BabyLock or Brother dealer around here.  Closest one is about 150 miles away.

Mary, my bones are kaput!  I've been on Fosomax and it did nothing for my ostheopena or osteoporosis.  They put me on an injectable medication every 4 months and that helped a lot.  Got through my 2 hip replacements well, and the last scan was okay.  I'm taking calcium and Vitamin D like mad to help those bones.  Kind of sad to be 52 and so messed up, but I was born with a dislocated hip and went through 4 surgeries before age of 9,...so I've been messed up for a while.

Got a call that my new AG designs are in.  I may have to run in after seeing the online video of what's included!  And I want those Christmas Blocks and borders and the Free motion designs as well.  Already order Flora and Fauna.

Debra, you are too funny! You clever lady, you!

Barbara, I want to go spend some money too. Perhaps tomorrow... am making a road trip to some quilt local shops.

Ranchmom, a spring, green desert; I bet that's beautiful! Oh, I want a cuppa too!

Good morning Anne, I hope all the appointments are with positive results!

Froggie I love your machine, I am so jealous.  I would love to just have one with a bigger hoop size then 4by4 but it is not going to happen.  Not in the near future anyway.  I am going to have to get my broom ready and make a trip to Mustang and check this machine out. Look out
Froggie here I come.

Barbara have a great time on your trip sounds like a lot of fun.  Hope you can work it  out to go see MaryAgnes.

Mari I loved fall on the coast, miss the crisp clean air when the fog would wear off.  I also miss the green the desert is brown especially this time of year.  Hopefully we will get enough moisture this winter to have a green spring. 

Happy Hump Day everyone, the cowboys are riding so need to get something cooking in the crock pot for them already have desserts made from the birthday and anniversary so will be an easy meal today.  Maybe I will get into the HenHouse and get some quilting done.  Need to finish the baby quilt and get the binding sewn on.  In the evenings I have been working on a crocheted sweater for Malia when it is done I will post a picture. 

Time for another Cuppa and to get busy. BBL

Well, now, Barbara.  That is exciting news.  Are you going to be close enough to NYC to take a day trip to visit me and the Big Apple?  

Comment by Barbara S/IL 2 hours ago

Froggie is that the GIANT hoop you're using? Looks like a lot of fun. CAn hardly wait to see your hand drawn designs, too.

Happy Wednesday. The camels are so funny. Tooting their own horn?

I noticed some glitches yesterday on the site but thought it was just me. Glad CT let you back in Anne.

Payday for us retirees today so now I want to go spend money. I'll try to restrain myself, though. I need to get some travel stuff as I'm actually going to be flying out to Connecticutt with my DS and DIL in a couple of weeks. Hopefully there will still be some pretty leaves left to see.

Mary, us bad spellers need to untie. (ugh, I mean unite).

The sun is coming up up slowly this AM. I can see why now, it is soupy foggy! I love that! It is so AUTUMN in the PNW now. Beautiful!

Good morning Mary Agnes.

I sure don't have my typing fingers yet this AM. Nearly every other word is typed incorrect. Ugh!

Good Morning Gifties.  Hump Day again?  Where does the time go?

Have fun with the machine, Froggie.  And you enjoy bowling, Diane; you deserve a break from all that work.  Cabbage rolls?  I might could eat a few if you send them my way.

I had dinner last night with another September baby.  Guess my celebrating is done until next year.

Lou Anne, it's great to hear you so upbeat.
