    Last year I asked for a gift certificate to my LQS. I got a larger certificate than I expected - it paid for a long arm class and 2 extra hours using the shop's long arm! I will ask for LQS certificates again this year, but I would really like to have a vintage Singer 301! (Seriously doubt I get that.) But, as always, I am grateful for whatever I receive!

    I think that is a great idea. Since my divorce 33 years ago, I buy myself the nicest presents -- I never have to return anything and the colors are always perfect.

    I'm thinking maybe an Ottlite floor lamp that could be used for either hand work or next to my machine.

    I just bought a small rotating mat set at Joann's when I had that 30% entire purchase last week. It handles 7" blocks and came with the 18mm rotary cutter, 2-1/2" square ruler and a 1" x 6" ruler. It was $26.99 then 40% off sale, then 30% off that with that coupon. So this little set ended up costing around $11.

    I used that mat yesterday and love it !! So, I think I'll put the larger one on my Christmas list. He asked me about mine just the other day too...

    Last year my daughter gave me two bottles of Best Press and two larger refill bottles. Love it. She couldn't believe how excited I was to get the stuff. This year will be so different. One daughter and family are going to Costa Rica during Christmas break and I will be staying at their house dog sitting. My other daughter, her husband and her daughter are not great celebraters of Christmas. So I want to think of something different to do, something out of the box, so I won't feel so bad about not having our traditional Christmas.

Hasn't happened in over 10 years.... :*(
    Oh, I wish that, too, for you! I know it would be my best gift!

    I think that's a great idea. My sister, who is divorced, buys herself a Christmas gift every year

    This isn't sad! It's smart. Even though I have a DH, he's a terrible shopper. I usually wind up just telling him what he bought me. Now if he wants to buy me a long arm setup, I wouldn't be upset, but I may as well wish for a Boeing 747!

    I think I just bought my Christmas gift. While at the Georgia Quilt show, I bought a new Pfaff Expression 2.0. I love the 10" harp and the beautiful stitches. I'm going to sell my Pfaff 2056. It's a great machine too, but the harp is 6.75". I have quilted on it, but 10" is much easier.

    My Christmas quilt wish list..hmmm Well i have started a fabric stash, some Kansas troubles and Summer Breeze(??), the yellow brick road pattern, some bobbins. I have asked for some Hobbs 80/20 Batting from Connecting threads. Secretly pinning for a Janome 6600MC, would love to have the larger throat. Don't get me wrong I love my Pfaff...I would like a stash of Aurifil thread or Superior threads...I would really like to have some good ideas what to get my Dh who has everything he truly wants and he doesn't want much of anything.
    To: Mimibug and all those divorced...it gets better, I promise. Go get that thing you would never expect to get yourself, and get it! Something that helps smile, helps you know you love you. Seriously it works!

    A gift? You mean I should get a gift? Hubby doesn't think of things like that anymore. Seriously, he doesn't - it's a medical thing.....

    If I want something I either drop a VERY heavy hint to our sons/DIL's - but so far that hasn't worked. I'd like a ride in the horse drawn carriage they offer during the "season" downtown. I've asked for that for 3 yrs. Hasn't happened yet.... Something more lasting? Oh holy cow, I would LOVE a HQ SweetSixteen - but that won't happen in my lifetime.

    Closest to my heart? I'd LOVE to just have all our sons/DIL's/grandchildren under the same roof at the same time. Now THAT could happen!

    I agree. I am also divorced (31 years) and I always get what I want for Christmas and my birthdays.

    Krista,
    I too was more or less alone at one time and decided that I would invite all the "alone" people that I knew to spend the holiday (happened to be Thanksgiving) with me and my 3 small children. It was one of the best Thanksgiving days that I ever spent. In fact, I wound up marrying one of the "alone" men and we have been happily married for almost 40 years. Several of the folks that shared that day with us said later that it was the best holiday they ever spent. Consider sharing your day with several others as I did. We had "family for a day" of all ages, from 5 to about 85 and it was GREAT!

    I'm sitting here with a split gut and tears running down my face! I was laughing so hard my husband wanted to know what was funny. I told him if he ever buys me wrinkle cream - expensive or otherwise - as a present he'd better start building himself a nice doghouse for his permanent residence.

    I'm just trying very hard to imagine what you could buy your DH in answer to that. How about some nice hemorrhoid ointment?!

    All this is off topic, so let me end by saying it would be good if we all could read minds, but since most of us aren't very good at it, maybe if the loved ones ask for hints we should leave some quilt and fabric catalogs lying around with bright red circles around certain things and lots of dog ears, and encourage them to browse and mark catalogs that appeal to them, too.
