    Sewing Santa was good to me...

    Wow was I surprised this year. Sewing Santa was really good to me and I just had to share with people that would understand what it is I got. I am so incredibly grateful to my family for supporting my hobbies. I feel so blessed. I'm humbled by their generosity. This year I received an Elna eXcellence 740 sewing machine, EQ7, Gingher scissors, a thread spool stand, and a nice sewing storage box.

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas; I hope you all felt loved and spoiled and I wish you all the best in the New Year. Thanks to all of you for being a wonderful supportive 'family' willing to share your experience and knowledge.

    Oh, and my Mom loved her blanket (avatar picture) with matching throw pillow.

    Happy Holidays!

    Yeah, good for you! It's great when family understands our hobby and 'helps' us indulge.

    Sewing Santa did not come to my house (must have been bad ) But I have been sewing/quilting many years and he has visited my house many times.

    Sounds like some great gifts! No sewing Santa for me either...But my son did make me a beautiful quilt rack that holds 4 quilts. Hangs on the wall and had four arms that swings . I love it. Now to find a place to hang it!

    Well Sewing Santa didn't visit my house but mainly because my kids pretty much know that I most of what I want and I know the things that I still want isn't in thier budget so I don't mention them or they'd try. I've been searching for months for an CD and couldn't find it and my daughter got me that one and also found one that had came out since that I didn't know about. I searched all over to find an emersion blender for my friend; I wanted to get her the one she wanted and finally did and wanted one for myself but couldn't afford it. My daughter was with me when I got it so she told my son that I wanted one. He got me one; not the one I would have gotten if I had the money but what he could afford which was great. I would have felt badly if he's spent the extra money to get the one I had wanted, like I bought my friend. My daughter paints once in a long while and she painted her friend a picture for her bathroom and I kept telling her I'd better get a painting. Come to find out; she had painted mine first, so I now have one to hang on my wall. I love it because my kids know me so well, better than my ex ever did. I don't keep it a secret of what I like or want so I never understood why he had to go around asking my family for help each yr or demand a list from me. My sister goes thru the same thing except her kids have no idea as to what to get her even though she's like me. I only get to see her once a yr if I'm lucky but when I see something I know she'd like I know it right away. I try and listen to my friends and family and get things that suits them and I'm so happy when they do the same for me. Sewing Santa might not have come to my house but my Family Santa did and was so right on target with what would make me happy; including two gift baskets of homemade items, (non food items)

    Goodness, you did have a nice quilting Christmas! I didn't expect much of anything because DH is getting me a long arm as a combined birthday, Christmas and anniversary (and Valentines, St Patrick's Day, Easter etc) present, but I still ended up getting some good sized gift cards to my favorite LQS, so I'm very pleased.

    Is anyone else kind of glad to get back to a routine though? I haven't been able to sew in days due to holiday activities!
