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.

Quiet place here today. Everyone must be enjoying the more spring-like temperatures that have finally arrived in some places. It's been raining all day here today and in the 50s.  Really not gonna get spring-like again until next week here. 

Thanks for the tip about opening the package of Thermore to let it breathe, Agnes.  Perhaps I was stressing over wrinkles that weren't really very bad, because that package was open for quite a while prior to using it. But I do have another one that I will open in hopes the creases will become more relaxed.

WOW,  quiet day..........

You sure do have a lot of wind Mary Alice.  Staying home and cooking sounds like a great idea to me.    Yup, that's a quick marriage, I wouldn't count it either.   

Is hubby going with you to the bowling tourney Kim?  Extra good luck and enjoy the trip.   

I wonder what Froggies been working on all day.  I bet they're enjoying some good food too.  

I don't know is anyone is gonna like the back of my doggie quilt besides me.  I'm a little off the wall and it's turning out off the wall too.  Not sure if it'll be finished this evening or not.    I'm not working on a dead line,  it'll be done when it's done.

I was up early this morning and out the door to go to work before 8. Wanted to be home earlier today to finish packing before I go bowling tonight.

Windy day here, and I'm tired of those winds.  At least I'm not having to deal with all the tumbleweeds some people are dealing with though.

Addie is a cutie with her quilt! I would definitely say she's in love with her quilt! I can already see her eyes lighting up at Thel's quilt!

Debating what to do today as the wind is too horrible to head outside and I  definitely don't feel like going shopping anywhere.  I put on a pot of beans this morning with some bacon, and I'll be making some green chili with asadero cheese, onion and tomato to go with our beans with dinner.

Lynne, so happy Peggy is healing well!  And wow, your new sewing table all set up.  Can't wait for pictures.

I got my license done last month.  I had to take in birth certificate, 2 bills,  and was so happy to get it done.  I know that it'll be required for flights in the future, but I don't see myself going anywhere really.  

I changed my name back to my maiden name after my divorce, and since I was only married for about 3 months before I left him, I consider myself single, feeling I wasn't married long enough to actually ever feel married.

Barbara, thanks for the camel picture!

Good morning Barbara.   Love that big smile !!! 

It's warm and overcast this morning.  Everyone's had some "out" time and we're back in.  They're all sleeping,  I'm enjoying my coffee.  

Tomorrow evening is the last evening of this semesters small groups SO all the gals I've been sharing devotions and coloring with are going out to a local restaurant for an early dinner and to meet each other in person.  It should be a wonderful time.  I haven't been out to a restaurant in forever.   We're going to a steak house.  

I plan to make progress with the backing for the doggie quilt today.

I think I'll sew up a few more Dresden's today. Hope I can keep up the inspiration to get them finished.

Hope Froggie is having fun on her retreat. Wonder how many quilts and projects will get started and/or finished.

Good morning. Everyone must be sleeping in today.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

I'm on my 3rd last name too Carol Ann.............well, 4th actually.  My birth name, then my married name of 35 years.  Then I changed my name when I re-married (BIG mistake -the marriage and the name change).  When I divorced him I changed back to the married name I'd had for 35 years.  I also refer to myself as a widow (1st marriage) not a divorcee.  

Sounds like I'm glad I don't have plans to get a passport.  What a lot of work.  

Comment by Carol Ann Hinton yesterday

Oh, and I'm just hoping I do not have to "trace" my name changes!  My first and second husbands both died after we were divorced, so technically I am on my third last name since birth!  (You know, that really sounds awful, now that I think about it.)

Comment by Carol Ann Hinton yesterday

Yes, Lynne, once you get the first passport, be sure to renew it!  It is a much simpler process.  We discovered that, when we had to get a cashier's check to get a copy of DH's San Francisco birth certificate, and have both the certified copy applications notarized.  Los Angeles accepted a personal check for my application.  (sigh)  Our bank was very helpful.  Now we wait, then get the photographs taken and continue with the second step in the process, actually applying for passports!
