I bought myself a kit from Keepsake Quilting to make a queen-size bargello (Mystic Nights) and told DH he could pay for half of it and that would be my Christmas present. I even managed to get it on sale, 20% off! Then on Christmas Day he surprised me with a $50 amazon gift card for quilt books so I have two new Judy Martin books on the way! This plus the new grandson I was presented with 12/23 has made it my best Christmas in years!

Love how you worded this! I asked myself for a lightweight machine for classes, but myself decided to wait and see if there were any after Christmas sales! On the hunt now!

I was very lucky this year and got the EQ7 software that I asked for. I also got 4 quilting books on sale at the Boxing Day sale at Lincraft average price $25 to $30 dollars I got them for $5 each. Life is good

I gift myself with quilty things all the time. I just didn't take the time to wrap them up and put them under the tree this year. I didn't even buy myself a gift certificate to my favorite LQS this year. In the past, it was a special treat to buy at the LQS instead of JAF, but now I'm becoming more choosy about my fabrics, so I tend to go to LQS more often. Instead I bought myself slippers, 3 scarves and DG Light Blue perfume. I should have bought myself more, as DD had a new Garmin and laptop under the tree. I guess I'll do some new year's shopping!

No one asked me what I wanted. I did get a pretty mosaic bowl with fake fruit in it from DD's boyfriend! The orange in the top of it matches the orange in my old sewing studio perfectly. Looks great on the table.

If I want quilty stuff, I buy it. Recently I did purchase a 40 yd bolt of wide batting. I'm good for while!

Not unless you count the quilt I recently finished for myself! Not specifically for Christmas, though. (Though I did bring it with me in the car as we drove around for the holiday to keep myself nice and snuggly warm!)

BUT, my father-in-law and my sister both gave me Amazon.com gift certificates so I've been building up a cart full of quilting books and special rulers and other similar quilting-related goodies. I'm well set for the basics but it's nice to get some frills!

My daughter got me another Ott lite! Santa brought me a Brother PQ1500S. (I ordered it while he watched over my shoulder. Tee hee hee!) It was a great Christmas. I even gave my oldest daughter a quilt I finished with fabric she selected in 1984...Yes 1984.

I had already bought a couple things but wrapped them up cuz money got tight & I love them. A package of Annie's Soft & Stable, a sew finger thingy, & an iron Caddy pattern for retreats.
