    Christmas doesn't come fast enough. My mom told me what she was going to get me for Christmas. its a darning foot and a walking foot. I am just way beyond excited. she didn't want to tell me but she needed me to order it because she had no idea what to get. I told her that she could have just gone to a sewing machine shop and they would have had them. hehe. She was sooooo mad. Now I have to wait to get to use them until after Christmas. its not fair. I am not very patient when it comes to waiting on new toys that I have been wanting to get for a while now. :D But I know with all your guys help I think that I can do it. maybe hopefully. only 21 ish days left till I get to play with my new toy. Think that I will work on getting a few doll size quilts all made and sandwiched so that christmas day I can play with my new toys as soon as the kids take their naps. (plan on bringing my sewing machine to my parents so that I can play with it. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ) we spend the night Christmas eve so that christmas morning everyone gets to share in the excitement of christmas morning with the little kids. now I am just getting way to excited about Christmas. Who else is with me???? I just can't wait till my little dd gets to open her new toy sewing machine so that she can sew just like mommy. (getting her a couple of FQ's to go with it.)

    I'm sorry you have to wait for your toys! My husband bought me an Accuquilt Go but gave it to me as soon as it arrived. I'll be playing with that before Christmas! :)

    after she wraps them, go take them out of the box & take them home to use. Then on Christmas day, take them back with you & when you open it have them stuck between your legs & say "ohhhhh how thoughtful of you mom"

    My husband bought me a accuquilt go also for Christmas but wrapped it as soon as it came in (I was at work) and put it under the Christmas tree!! So now I have to wait till Christmas to play with my new toy. I guess I will just have to buy more material to get ready for my new toy. maybe he will get tired of me buying material and go ahead and give it to me! What do you think?

    Just like my niece and both her teen agers. She will say she'll put presents under the tree, then as soon as the door closes she'll rip into them like a 3 year old!! No patience where presents are concerned! So since we love her my sister and I keep our presents for her till Christmas Eve!!

    My problem is waiting to open the package! I'm okay knowing there's a gift until I see the package. I used to sneak a peek almost every year but now DH hides them until Christmas Eve. Then he puts it under the tree to tease me since I have to wait till the kids get here on Christmas Day. Ughh!

    Congrat's I know you'll have lots of fun with this stuff.
    My entire family is in CA and we can't afford to go home for Christmas this year. It is a BIG deal with my family and I'm really bummed I can't go. Love to watch all the little kids tear into their present and squeel with delight.

    Enjoy your holiday with everyone!!! ;)

    I would make the argument that you should "test drive" it to make sure it is in good working order. After all, it could get damaged in transit (hee hee). Then you'd have to return it and wait a long time for a replacement - waaaaay after Christmas. (This has worked for me in the past)

    I am sorry twospoiledhuskies. I totally understand not being able to be with your family for the holidays when it is a big deal. my hubbys family is all in CA. we haven't been there for almost 8 years for a holiday. don't have the money and when we do he likes to go for his birthday in the summer.

    I envy you. Not what you got, but how. I love Christmas too, and I get very excited about it during the wait. DH says I am the one who can't wait for Christmas, but he always gives me my present as soon as I help him pick/buy it. Giving hints or a wish list doesn't help. There won't be anything under the tree from him.

    My mom is getting me a walking foot for my machine. I had one and it broke. Can't wait to have it either!! My biggest thing is the kids for Christmas. I love watching them open up their presents. That's really the best part for me.

    I don't know what it is about me but the minute I finished a Christmas gift, I can't wait to give it to the person, mostly family. It really drives me crazy wanting to give it. I think your Mom should give it to you now so you can make something wonderful for her for Christmas, my husband got a new computer and forbid me to wrap it, he wanted it now! So it isn't just children who get so excited, we older folks do too. I love Christmas Eve the best, my kids all come home (some from far away) and that is my present, with all my family and grandchildren here and having a wonderful time.

    Hang in there, it's getting closer every day. You should join the Doll Quilt Swap, you'll get a lot of practice that way, and it is a blast.

    My DH and I moved away from where our grown kids still live, so things will be a little different for us this year. So we're going to do something different. We were having trouble thinking of what to get for each other so we decided to shop for ourselves but keep it a secret from each other as to what we're getting.

    I ordered myself a laptop hoop for hand-quilting :) It's already been shipped and I can't wait to get it so I can start hand-quilting a baby quilt that's all ready and waiting!

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    I sent my daughter money for Christmas and she bought a sewing machine she has needed for years. She is an avid sewer and has played with her old machine for years and it finally froze up and would go no further. One might say it kicked the bucket. She got her machine and asked if she could take it out of the box and use it. Of course the answer was YES! She had waited too long for this. Her husband wouldn't let her get one and he took the money I sent her last year. Divorced now. Yeah!!

    My daughter lives in England now (I'm in America) and is finally showing interest in sewing. I've been spending WAY too much time on EbayUK, trying to buy her a good used machine for Christmas! (They have different current there, so it's just simpler to get her an English machine.) If I ever can win a bid on a decent machine for her, I'll be so happy. I wish I could be there to teach her all the sewing stuff she never paid attention to while she lived at home.

    I am right there with you. I am getting a darning and 1/4 inch foot for my 301A. I can't wait to try FMQ on it!! I also got my DGD a sewing machine. You gave me a perfect idea about getting some fq's for her. I may get her her own little sewing box and scissors to use with it.

    Christmas is the best time of year!!
    my only wish is to have my family close by for at least a couple of hours.
    It is hard for everyone. especially when they have to visit all of the families.

    i am pretty easy, i do not care when we get to spend time together as long as we get some time

    i hope my nieces and me great niece like their new quilts!!

    I believe in the spirit of Christmas for sure!!!!
