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.

Mari, I guess I get that from my Granny ( Dad's Mom). She lived with us after Grandpa died. She taught mama and they both me how to sew. I remember she sat under a tree with huge leaves with me and made me a dress, hat, and purse out of those big leaves. She wove some straw sticks and made them. Then she made my 2 brothers sit down and we had a fashion show. Fun times. My Cajun grandma (MawMaw) told stories too and sang silly songs. I try and do that with the grands when I can. I guess that's why I'm called the fun MawMaw. 

Got to go and see what I can get into. Not trouble I hope. bbl

Morn'in everyone!

Agnes, so glad you found the template! The first time I got on that website I had the same problem. Noticed the pink "pattern" word and thought I would click on it just in case it was a link and it worked. Imagine that, LOL!

Sheila, so glad you like the project this week! Believe me, it was a quick one. 1-1/2 hrs from picking fabric to attaching the Velcro. And I really like it.

Froggie, I bet there is too and I hope you'll share, LOL!!!

Debra, LOL! You're awesome! Love your stories!

Good Morning!

Dreary weather. I'll just have to stay inside and find something to do. Any body got suggestions. lol I have two bells made and the coin purse cut out. Now to find some thread to match. 

At Wal-mart everybody was in a real hurry. I like to take the time to check what I'm being charged. I had some infinity scarf's that was priced 2.25, but rang up 4.50. The lady in back of me got upset when the cashier had to use the phone to check the price. I told her I don't know about you but I work hard for my money. Do you like to pay too much for something? If you have some extra money could you pay for these? She took her basket and walked off, but had to come back to get her stuff off the counter. The man in back of her just shook his head and laughed. I guess I have lost my patience in my old age. Old age, I never could keep my mouth shut. bbl

I thought I was hearing an echo, Mari! Gift card! I bet there's lots of things we can do with it. 

Oh I am so sorry you had to go into the WalMart, Debra! But I see you made it out in one piece. 

OHNO, I am hearing an echo again. People typing on each other's fingers. 

Hopppy December! I am ready for spring. I don't like winter. Spring. But, I have a swim spa, it will make the cold more tolerable. Sis in law came over last night and got in. It was fun. DGS2 said, Aren't you inviting me to get in? He loves it. I knew he would. I better hop over and download the project for the week. Find the template like Agnes did, that really sounds like me. We are a crazy bunch of people!

'Mornin, Gifties, from NYC where we'll feel like spring today.

Don't you wish there was a pill you could take to learn all you needed to know about current technology? Which icon to click, which phone to buy, how to program the DVD, how to post pictures?  

WalMart is a universe unto itself.  Sort of like stepping into the Tardis. You never know what to expect.

Well, that's a pretty spiffy little gift, Mari. Trust you to find us some of the neatest stuff. Thanks again.

Yay Agnes! I do that all the time. For me, it's a block in my head- a big dense one- when it comes to figuring out which icon to click on. 

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario 12 hours ago

Thanks, Mari and Kathleen.  For some reason I had difficulty finding it, even with your suggestions. I've got it now. I was making something simple into a difficult task. Unfortunately that is often the story of my life.

Agnes, go back to the site and look under the title "Tools". There you will find the word "Pattern". It is pink letters. Click on that word. It is a link to the template.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury 16 hours ago

Agnes, just click on the I Heart Linen link in Mari's post below. It takes you directly to the post with the tutorial and under Tools in that post it shows the link for the pattern.
