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.

Glad your DD is on her way Linda. Have a great time with her. I just told my DD's about her trip and they sympathize though my youngest said at least she was stuck in a big airport - not Moline where she was stuck last year with no restaurants, shops etc. I guess there's a good side to everything - lol.
My DSIL is on his way here too. DD has been here a few days but he had to work and couldn't get the days off and was planning to drive up Christmas day. He called this am and said when he got to work his boss said, "Why didn't you tell me you were going to Iowa for Christmas?"
He then told him to go home and get on the road before the weather gets bad. It's nice to see the Christmas spirit alive and well! He should be near Des Moines about now.
We had ice this am but now it's just raining. We got out to get groceries and the girls and DS are making cookies. Of course DS hasn't done any shopping yet so he may be giving late gifts but that's ok - not sure if his GF will agree though :).

Hi Kit, Dutch Apple bread sounds delicious! Can you share the recipe? I think that the Barefoot Contessa baked some cracker cookies once, maybe check on foodnetwork.com. Don't know if they are like yours, but its worth a try.
DD has been making her rounds around the world to get here. Stuck in Chicago last night, this morning took off for Atlanta, then OKC. Wonder if the plane stopped at the North Pole to help Santa out??? Well, she should be here in 30 minutes. I am soooo excited to see her.

Hoppy quilting!

Glad to hear from you Linda Froggie. We surely have missed your funny posts. Aren't GS's the greatest. One of mine is home for the holidays - doesn't go back to school until January. I am supposed to bake with my DGD's, but they haven't come here yet, so I started baking by myself today. Got a couple of small banana nut breads and a couple of small Dutch Apple breads baked for gifts. Wanted to do more, but I had a spill in the refrigerator so had to clean that up. Now I am tired, so thought I'd get online and do some things and try to locate a recipe for cracker cookies that are so good, but I can't find my recipe. Hope you all have a good night. Kit

Hey, I really am innocent, just ask my… no wait, don’t ask anyone, just believe me. I didn’t do it. Diane, all I can say is brrrrrr. I’m glad you are feeling better now. Who can blame you, and what a better place to vent than here? We are here for ya, except of course, for the days that I forget to check in for six days. I bet you thought I was dead. Or lost in the mall. Maybe that’s where Mari is!
Oh Anne, you are a trouper! At least you can drink coffee! Woohoo!
Peg, what cute table runners, how cool to change the pattern around like that. Your sisters will love them.
Francine, we had our credit card number jacked this fall, too. We had to get a new number, they just kept using it.
What a pretty table runner, Kit! I love it.
DD got 20” of snow in Baltimore this weekend. Right now she’s winging her way to Chicago after a huge delay at the Baltimore airport. Cross your fingers that her Chicago flight is delayed so she can make her connection. Bummer if she has to sleep in Chicago tonight. She has problems every Christmas when she comes home.
DGS has been here since Sunday, today we made some Banana Nut Bread, some cookies, and brownies. The cookies and brownies were new recipes for us, and they both are very good. I think I am finished with my shopping, I guess I should look at my list again. Still waiting for some packages to be delivered, I just hope they get here soon. Yesterday DGS and I worked on some ancestor stuff, he has an assignment over the holiday. I have been wanting to do that too, so it got me motivated. I have some info that my Mom got from someone, I have no idea who this woman is, but she’s related somehow, and she had traced back to 1703! Crazy, huh? So, there’s some interesting stuff that DGS can tell and show his teacher. I haven’t gotten much sewing done lately, but have been busy with DGS!
Hoppy quilting!

Merry Christmas everyone! All my kids are home so life is good. We're supposed to get nasty weather over the next few days - rain, freezing rain sleet and snow - so I'm extra glad they are all here already.
I've finished my gifts for this year and am already thinking of future ones thanks to this group. Quilters are the greatest!

Go to 12th Week and click on Watch the video.
Comment by Paula A. Ross on December 22, 2009 at 4:30pm
What is the name of the video you guys are talking about?
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on December 22, 2009 at 4:22pm
Thanks Anne. I might have missed the video. It's great. Now we know where Mari is--Hollywood!!!

I find I inadvertantly decided to have a Christmas party. I'll be home this year and sent an email to city friends I thought might also be here suggesting they visit and guess what? Lots of people are going to visit. Now I have to figure out what to feed them, and where they can sit. It's always something.

Have a very Merry Christmas, every one.
