    I think I'd really like an AccuCut Go! with a collection of dies.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    I kind of like that idea!! I just might do that and put a card on it from Santa!

    I always ask for gift cards for JoAnn or Hobby Lobby. I always have to "tell" my DH what to get for me, so this year I told him I was just about out of "White Linen" by Estee Lauder....it's my favorite....so that's what he'll get me. A couple of years ago I got my quilting shed, so he's caught up on the quilty things for quite a few years!! Love that man!!

    I didn't have anything till today. my baby broke today(my old trusty new home) so guess i will be looking for another one. or see if this one can be fixed or not. at least I do have a back up but it just isn't the same not having my old friend to sew on. what a bummer day.

    Our only gift routine is that we go to Kauai every 3rd Christmas with my Mom and sister. Those years we don't exchange any gifts now that the kids are older - I used to do stockings for them and small things so they'd have something to open. No tree, no decorating, no baking, just fun in the sun!

    Other years if we need something for the house we will buy that for our gift to each other. Sometimes small gifts, it just depends. We are pretty laid back about gifts to each other I guess. DH is good at buying what he needs for his hobbies and I am too!

    I do have my eye on a new machine with a bigger harp but we just had to buy a new mattress for our bed so that might have to wait. We are in the $$ college years now!

    My DH will come home with surprises for me that really surprise. He is my best Christmas present every year. LOL He was bringing home a lot of Pampered Chef items and when I asked where are you getting this? Do you go to parties on your lunch hour? He said a co worker's wife sold the stuff and he told the guy to order something every few weeks for me, to help her out. The guy then told his wife to order something. Men with no clue are hilarious!
    Got fabric?

    Thanks for sharing!

    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.
    LOL, on the other hand, I've aged 5 years in the last half year----------wrinkles really starting to show on this 65 year old face. I'd love some high end wrinkle cream. Got any suggestions as to brand??????????

    You know, back when I was young, I always looked forward to the Sears & Roebuck catalog to decide what I wanted for Christmas. Too bad there's not a giant catalog for us now! They come in droves and might have ONE thing per catalog that even catch my attention.

    Off topic but...... you have to try BB cream for your face! It's fantastic, not a make up but makes you skin look great. It's deep moisture, you have to try it. It's great for mature skin like mine! I use Garnier. For real, this stuff works. The BB means Beauty Balm arnd it's not a brand name but a new type of cream. Many brands but Garnier is in the top list of the BB creams. I buy it at Walmart. http://www.garnierusa.com/_en/_us/bb-cream/index.aspx

    To the person who posted about getting the vacination for shingles as gift. I totally agree, it's a great gift.

    My last physical the Dr. asked if I wanted the Shingles shot. I said ok and I got it before I left. I'm pretty sure the insurance paid for it in with the Dr. visit. I never got a bill other then my co pay for the physical.

    I already asked my DH for my quilty gift - he is ordering an EQ7 for me - Yay!! I have wanted this program since the original edition came out over 10 years ago - I can hardly wait to play with this great new toy! My biggest wish list item is a LA machine - but that is not in the budget this year. I hope one day it will be - but for this year I will be thrilled to have EQ7 and maybe a few gift cards for my LQS!

    I think that is a really nice idea! You deserve a 'surprise' package. If you have shopped there often, they probably know your ideas of what you like -- maybe even a new pattern book or a big stack of fat quarters & a template or two. Hope you get a Merry Merry package that will make you smile big!! Of course you'll have to tell us about it.

    I had asked for a wedding, but we have to wait until next year. One would think that at age 70 we could do what ever we want!

    This is a great idea! Tell them what you like and I am sure they will do a whole lot better than your x would have! Good luck.

    Be sure to check out Ronda's lessons on QB - they are so great! I love my EQ7.

    Way to go, girl! have fun.

    I have been thinking of the LA class so this would be a good certificate...Thanks!

    I wanted to bring home the new sewing machine I've been saving for. Turns out I may get my wish!! I'm so excited I can hardly wait!!! I've saved most of it, but DH is going to take care of the rest. He's the best!! He was so sweet during vaca...DD took me to her fave thrift shop to get fabric scraps. They had lots!! We did this twice! :-) The day before we left they'd gotten another load in & she said she'd been conflicted as to calling me to tell me or not. DH said he didn't care if I got more fabric because he knows that whatever I get will be worth way more in what I make with it! Isn't that sweet?! No wonder I love him so! :-)
