Tree Trivet
Gifty Galore Project – 23

I like to save the very quick and easy projects for the tail end of the Gifty Galore season. It seems like a practical thing to do given how little time is left to make last minute gifts, right? So, here is the final project of the year, a lovely Tree Trivet from Stitching and Bacon. The project is made from the collection

Photo Christmas Stocking by Sewing Sue It’s that time of year again and I just need to whip up a couple of Christmas Stockings.

Plus we always have out of town visitors over Christmas, ...

I only wish I had sewn more of these at the same time! They make great stocking stuffers for ...

Me again, back with another fun project. This time, I decided to step it up a notch and I’m making the Scrappy Make-up Pouch. I was distracted by the cuteness and didn’t notice the zipper until I’d already signed up. A Zipper! I signed up to do a project with a ZIPPER! Who did I think I was? These are the things that were running through ...

“I Spy” Matching Game This Gifty Galore Project is great for using up those scraps of fabric and batting that we quilters tend to hang on to! When it looked like we might go on a family trip over Christmas I started looking for ideas to keep my 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter busy on an airplane.  Pinterest is a great resource for this kind of thing ...

Hi Quilty Friends!  I’m Shelley from Cora’s Quilts.  Hubby and I make our home in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, near Sacramento, CA.  We have two hysterical, imaginative boys, ages 1 and 2.75, so you can imagine how hard it is for me to sneak in a little sewing time in between all that dirt, plank-walking, quilt-fort-building and endless stacks of laundry!   When
