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.

Mary Agnes, you need to bring ChouChou! I'd love to meet him and play fetch with him.

Canned more grape jelly. Got 5 pints.

Sorry, I have ruined the movie for everyone else! Nekkid sumo wrestler! Sorry, I will quit saying that. And yes, the chocolate zucchini bread was delicious. Yum. we do get a lot of wind in the plains, don't we?

Oh Carol, what a fantastic idea! BIG saddlebags and visiting everyone else. What a fun time! We need that.

Of course you have to bring Chouchou with you! That will be fun. He can hang out with Missy. Her favorite activity is sleeping. Oh no, rough neighborhood! Can't put anything outside for lots of reasons. That's why we need to visit each other, to experience the differences. Oh goodie, make that a broom built for two, with a doggiebag, and saddlebags!

I better get movin', we are going to have a late birthday dinner for DGS2. His birthday was the 17th, and this is the first time we have seen him since then.

Wow that was a lot of fun.  I think Chouchou would love flying with you MaryAgnes making a quilted doggiebag would be a great idea.  TJ just sits on the broom with me but I think I need to get him his own broom he adds a lot of weight.

I am sorry Mari missed the party!  We may have to another one in a few days when she can come.

I don't put out glass vases on the ranch either.  The wind would blow it, DS4 puppy would carry it off, the other dogs and drunk cowboys would pee in it. 

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC yesterday

WOW!!!  What a party.  Thanks ranchmom.  I'm glad ranchdad was able to eat my share of that hot chili dip.  Isn't it amazing how we sober up as soon as we call our brooms to take us home?   I was thinking of quilting a doggiebag so Chouchou could fly with me.

I hope Mari isn't too disappointed when she reads that we partied without her.  

I wouldn't put out a glass vase in NYC for several reasons:  If I put it out on the fire escape it's against city regs and the landlord would be fined.  If I put it outside the front door it would be stolen, broken and/or peed on by the many dogs in the neighborhood.  If the super found it before it was stolen, she'd throw it away.

I'll let each of you know when I'll be arriving.  Froggie wants to visit too so first stop will be Mustang, OK to pick her up.  Not until after I finish my camera course.

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH yesterday

Sounds like we have lots of spare rooms.  Perhaps we could work out a schedule and rotate everyone in and out of everyone else's guest rooms.  After all, we have the brooms so transportation wouldn't be a problem.  Can you imagine each of us getting to visit all those "new" quilt shops across the country.  We better quilt some BIG saddlebags for the brooms to get it all home.

Comment by Diane Gunter/Canada yesterday

Guess you are all smarter than me. I was sure my vase was safe. In fact I have put another one out today.

MaryAgnes if you are flying over Alberta just pop on by. I have plenty of room and would love to have you!

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday
I'm home okay, and no hair decor either! Wine with frozen grapes was fantastic! Loved the chocolate zucchini bread! I need to make some soon!

A glass vase outside would never be found with the winds in NM.

Froggie, I never said a peep. But you've disclosed it. Naughty of you! Yew! I did not need the mental picture of a sumo in the buff. I'd rather see a hunky cowboy myself!
Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

Thanks for the wine, MaryAgnes, of course you would bring it! And thanks for the frozen grapes, Carol! Yum, that was good.

Oh no, Diane. You wouldn't want to put a glass vase outside in Oklahoma, it would definitely get blown over and break. I do love sunflowers.

I love fresh apple pie and French vanilla ice cream. Yum, thanks so much.

Mary Alice, who told you that I had an incident on the way home? Did I mention how good the wine and frozen grapes was????

We went to a movie this afternoon. Let's be Cops. Something like that. It was hilarious! I think I laughed more than anyone in the theater. One time, I was the only one that laughed, and then I said, Why didn't anyone else laugh at that? And the people behind me laughed at me. It was rather awkward because it was rated R! And there was a nekkid sumo wrestler in one scene. I would rather see the nekkid cowboy.

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday

I don't get any tricksters or treaters out here in the boonies so I'm planning on giving it to my DIL.

I hope you cut Mary Alice off of the wine early, Ranchmom. I wouldn't want to need to  decorate her hair again. HeeHee. BTW- I love the chocolate zucchini bread Anne.

Comment by Sheila Craft yesterday
Great apron, Barbara! Wear it while passing out goodies for trick or treat - oh, but do you get any little goblins? I don't.
