Vilma, you will be very happy if you do join us in Gifty. It was my first to join, and it has been nothing but fun ever since.

And thanks to all of you for being in my live!!!

You crack me up, Vilma. And guess what? I SAW YOU! hehee.

It is a fun and wild group isn't it, Kathy?

I took my LL quilt to sis's today, she had a sit and sew, and she wanted to see my quilt. She loves it! So did her friends. That always makes me feel good. I have to quilt it now. This quilt doesn't want to be a UFO.

Vilma, your Christmas quilt is adorable. Might as well join the Gifty Galore group. You can always just 'lurk' in the wings. lol  The projects are quite varied, so there is usually something for everyone. And members are always posting other projects they work on.

Thanks Ladies,  I think I will visit some of you at the Gifty Galore and check it out.  I am not promising anything.  Just checking it out.  :)

That really IS a happy quilt, Vilma! I love it.

My sis calls it fancy cut.

Yippee, Mari, I am ready. Wait, first I need to get my LL quilt quilted, or it will end up with the two totes full of kits. I went through the two totes last night, I found a couple of projects just like Mari's. Almost finished, what was I thinking????

I slept late, and haven't showered, or even managed to get off the couch. I think I need to motivate myself and get hopppin'.

Hi Everyone-- What with my daughter and family visiting from Michigan this past week, everything has been very busy, especially with 4 grandkids!  We have been on the go almost every day and we still have another week to go!  Went to Pismo Beach yesterday, the Castle Air Museum the day before and today is the zoo.  Although, at my daughter's house it already is a zoo there!  Maybe today I can get some sewing in after doing some grocery shopping.  Still trying to catch up on emails.  :)

Vilma, your Christmas quilt looks like a Christmas card! So cute.

Thanks Lou Ann! I do need that reminder, actually quite often.

Mari, it sounds like fun, but don't forget that your body is still healing and it is OK to ask others to help. Please take it easy.

Vilma what a neat quilt! Were you so lucky that you found stripes and squares that contained the Christmas things? It would take me a very long time to find that many fabrics. As you can see, I also think of everything that went into the planning and I'm impressed!

Good morning everyone!

Wow, cute quilt Vilma! I really love samplers and especially ones that have mixed up block placement. Really cute!

Today is a Gifty Galore Season 2014 prep day. That's all I'll be working on to get ready for July 7th! Graphics are almost done and we are preparing a special page for revealing each gift! Wahoo! It's going to be great!
