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.

Did you make those Agnes? Is that a hat too?

Mary Alice--Men around me need or want mothering more than I need a man. If I really want something that needs to be done by a man I can call on my son. He's getting better at responding quickly. I'm rubbing off on him. I'll email him about something simple and he drops in on his lunch break. Wonderful! 

So glad to hear that there is rain in PNW.

I am ready for winter and that in the midst of another heat wave. I had the unexpected invitation to a fish fry and therefore was out for my walk in the sweltering son. I shall remained holed up for the rest of the day. Need a nap first to recoup from the heat.

I can't upload the photo of my mitts at this time. Will try to remember to post it later.

Hey there everyone. Not much happening here. Rain like Mari has. Would you believe after just a couple days of rain my lawn is already turning green. Looks wonderful, but now that means I will have to mow again in the near future. That's okay cause it sure is wonderful to have rain! 

Have not been to the sewing room yet. Just completely worn out. All the excitement and driving has caught up to me. I even nodded off getting caught up on all your postings. Oops, good thing I was sitting down. Well, I will check in later. Thake care all.

Barbara, what men in my life? I've got one useless brother, that's it.  He won't do anything no matter what I or my mom say.  I can always hire Javier to work for us, but I hate dishing out money when I know I can  still do it myself little by little.  My brother could care less, plus he does have a full time job and lives 30 minutes away.  he's still useless though. 

I think I need to find me a good man!  Where does one  go for that??  I've been to church and they don't look all that.  Looks like they need help themselves.

Mom's hungry, gotta go feed her.

Very cute bag, Kathleen. Those fabrics are so sweet together.

Mary Alice, you need to get those men in your life to do some of that heavy work. You have really spoiled them by doing it all yourself.

Lou Ann I hope the massage does the trick for you. Taking that extra day off sounds like a plan.

I need to get the binding on the babay quilt instead of playing with other things. The shower is the 13th.

Those bunnies are cuties. Mama bunny probably did move them. It's funny how they will make a nest in a dip in the yard, isn't it? Hope you decided to take a nap this afternoon, Froggie.

Kathleen that bag so so darling!  Love the little bird houses!

Oh new furniture is the BOMB Lou Ann!  I need to get new living room furniture and new beds.  Gotta get things little by little now. 

Been so busy taking care of the yard that the inside is beginning to look like a hoarders paradise!  I gotta get to cleaning the inside too before winter gets here.

Kathleen, such a lovely bag. The coloration is so soft. Someone's receiving a fabulous gift!

Lou Ann, so sorry to hear about your sore back. I'm glad the teacher was able to perceive your needs and offer an alternative to you. The new furniture sounds exciting and it's all yours, brand new!!! Nothing better than that.

Today I don't feel like doing diddly!  But I may just have to start that Bernina BOM (class is on the 19th), got the fabrics from CT to finish up that Island Hopping quilt I'd started, and only the borders are left to finish the top. Then quilting and binding.  May use that Edge to Edge quitling method.  Then I got some solids to make some Jaybird Designs tablerunners and as a way to learn to use the her Sidekick and Hex and More ruler for the  challenging Gravity quilt and other BOM book she's got.  I want to get CT fabrics for both those BOM books but finding the exact matching fabrics is tough.   Did you see they are offering a freebie on the CT blog as they interviewed her about her new book, Gravity.  Check it out--I'm and enabler!

I haven't touched my machine in over a week!  I haven't even gotten thrills running my hands over nice new fabrics.  I'm too beat from yard work, laundry and going to town.  Get home too tuckered out to do much of anything.  Just watch TV in bed with feet up.

I LOVE listening to music.  I love 50s-80s, big swing bands, jazz, and of course Mariachi music.  I've created some CDs with all my favorites in all genres.  So I can start sewing with jazz and end up with some Salsa dancing!  LOL!  I love that CD soundtrack of Phantom of the Opera, and Something's Gotta Give. Every now and then a Jamaican beat is nice too.  Mom looks at me weird, but hey, I'm having fun!
