    Neither DH or I need anything at all this year so we have decided to give each other the shingles vacination. REALLY weird I know but we both just turned 60 and the shot is over $200 and insurance doesn't cover it. Not a quilt item but if I got shingles I might not be able to quilt so I can justify it as a quilty item.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I would like one of the rotating cutting mats, every size Twister square in production, X block square, a large gift package of Aurifil threads in neutrals and fabric, fabric, fabric. I nice size gift certificate to my LQS would be great too.

    I don't have anyone to buy me nice quilty gifts for Christmas, since my divorce. But I am seriously considering dropping by my LQS and asking them to make me up a "Surprise package" for a set amount of $. How sad is that?

    We got really tired of returning, or re-gifting of gifts we didn't want, so several years ago DH came up with the idea of buying our own gifts...with rules, of course! lol

    The rules?
    Discuss a dollar limit.
    All gifts must be wrapped and stashed as soon as possible after purchase.
    You must still do a stocking for each other, not yourself, and whatever fits into the stocking is ok to buy, no dollar limit set on stockings...hmmm...do I see diamonds in my stocking? lol

    We've had so much fun with this. You can't imagine the looks on each others' faces to see what was bought! The funny part of all this is that WE actually forget what we bought for ourselves, so we're almost as surprised as if someone else had bought it for us.

    With that said, I'll be buying whatever I want, within our preset dollar limit.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I don't think this is sad at all! I think this is just about the best idea ever. My grandmother, even when my grandfather was still alive, always got herself a great present. That way, she always got something she really wanted! I am stealing this idea! Thank you

    Are you participating in the Secret Santa this year? I am and am looking forward to it.

    I am married, but dh does not seem to think about me when he buys my gift. Like the year he gave me gold hoops, when my pierced ears had grown over the the 6th time. Last year I got fairly expensive wrinkle cream, I guess I am looking too old for him.

    I think you have a good idea in have your LQS doing a surprise package for you.

    Not sad at all!! I think that it is a great idea...go with it! Have them make up two or three gifts for you.

    I have discovered the Wish List on amazon.com. I often browse amazon for books or quilting notions, or anything else that catches my eye. I created a Wish List and add things to it as I find them. My husband and kids and grandkids have done the same thing, so Christmas shopping should be much easier this year.

    My list has a lot of quilting books - not necessarily patterns, but books about the history of quiltmaking, Civil War quilts, why quilting matters to us quilters. Hopefully, I will add to my bookcase this Christmas!

    THAT comment cracked me up!

    I realize you will have a professional give you both the inoculation, but my first thought was each of you standing there with a syringe in your hand waiting to give each other the shot.
