Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

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 18th - December 19th, 2016 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.

I had to give myself a "timeout" earlier.  I was not paying attention.  I had a glass of wine on my desk.  Penny's pillow is on my desk.  I was busy typing and looked up and the little lush had her face in my wine glass.   ONLY a couple licks thankfully.

Worked hard all my lifetime,  no help from my friends! 

Darn,  I loved that voice and still do. 

Green Peace top is complete.  Tomorrow will be sandwich day.    The second picture is my backing fabric.

Okay, I had to do a little research and I hadn't even started Kindergarten yet when Woodstock was held.  Too funny!

I actually did some sewing this morning before work. Putting the borders together for one of BH mystery quilts from a few years back. I love this year's colors for the mystery.

That is really pretty Thel. Can't wait to see it finished.

I'm not into musicals and opera.............never have been.  Too much leftover hippie in me I guess. 

I decided on the 3" border after many comments.  It's all sewn,  sitting on the ironing board while the iron heats up.  I can't believe I've had enough MOJO to make a full quilt from scratch in a week...............geeze.  Admittedly not a fancy pattern,  but the potential buyer loves it.  My plan is to stipple/meander.    Photo to come after taking a break. 

Really,  nobody here went to Woodstock.  I am surprised.

I like the thinner border, Thel. I don't like fat borders, though. It really looks good, I like the piano key look on the border. 

Yep, be watching, Cindy! Just a few days, and you should have it. I should have looked at the receipt to see when it should be delivered. 

I think I was a baby when Woodstock happened too, Thel. I do love Janis Joplin, love her voice. 

I like your choices too, Rita! Oh yeah. Oh yours too, MaryKaren! And I will go see Adele with you. 

Well, I thought it wasn't rap. Must be wrong again. I do love the old Musicals, Oklahoma, of course. And Brigadoon.Jumping from old musicals to old movies, you can't beat The Thin Man! William Powell and Myrna Loy, they were great. And Asta the dog. Love it! 

I am tired tonite, I think I did too much again today. Good grief, Charlie Brown. I hope I can sleep.

Love your movie choices, Mari!  In addition to "Pride & Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility," try "Emma," and "Far From the Madding Crowd."  I can spend a whole weekend alone at the mountain house, with tea and sugar cookies, binging on all four!

Yes, I was thinking the Broadway musical 'Alexander Hamilton' and it is Rap. Is there another version?

I like the Broadway musicals of old- Oklahoma, Mame, Phantom of the Opera (I saw that one when it played in Chicago-Wow), Romeo and Juliet, etc. 

Hope you get some answers at the Dr. visit, Cindy. There are many different ideas on how to treat that CA these days. A friend of mine had the implant therapy and is doing really well, My brother in law had the very invasive surgical treatment and had a long recovery but seems to be doing well, now.

I saw the BH facebook post and copied the first instructions. Not sure if I'll do it though. I have very little in the way of purples or lavendars in my stash. 

Kim is a baby...hope she can tolerate us oldies.
