    I have been saving all year for the Laura Ashley Innov-is NX-2000 sewing machine by Brother. I was happy to have gotten over half the $ together for it. We were talking about it & why I want it & I mentioned I'd been hoping to have enough money by Christmas or my next bday. DH is waiting on a check to come & then we'll bring it home!!! I'm SO excited!! He said where I'd gotten half of it, he'd do the other half! He also just got me a new camera! I must have been a very good girl this year! :-)

    My wish list is easy for my kids to do. I ask for gift certicicates from my LQS. They usually last me the whole year and I enjoy all.

    I just found out about the Deb Tucker trimming rulers. They look like they would be fun to have.

    Otherwise - I'm fairly well supplied with 'stuff'

    I might need to take my Pfaff in to the sewing machine doctor - I think something electrical is going bad.

    A lit up seam ripper (my most used sewing tool) and an easy hem tool that is mostly for sewing hems on clothes but will be handy in general, it's metal and you fold the hem over it and iron right on it.

    I just want DH to quit finding other things for me to do so I can work on my projects. He's retired...I'm not. I work and crave an evening or preferably a weekend to sit in my pj's and sew from dawn til dusk. I love that he wants us to do things but I love just enjoying my home

    I asked for any or all of Bonnie Hunter's quilting books. She just speaks my language!

    Tomorrow Santa is bringing a new natural light floor lamp with magnifier to our house. It can go behind my shoulder when I am at the machine, or next to my chair to read or for hand work. In my mind, there is no such thing as too much light when sewing.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I feel very fortunate as I have been quilting forr over twenty years and have just about every tool available along with quilting supplies. Of coarse I can always use more fabric so I ask for a gift certif. from my favorite quilt shop. I have three Jaome machines, two that emb. and enjoy doing that. Although DH does ask what I would like. He always does, lucky me

    100% cotton thread like Aurifil or King Tut's would also be something I'd love to see in my stocking. I may have just come up with some of my stocking stuffers. Who needs chocolate when you can have thread??

    I know the feeling exactly. So, I buy what I really want for myself and tell them the next things down on the list.

    Im hoping for gc for fabric.
    what i really want is an embroidery machine.
    I make stuffed animals for the poor kids, and just found a german site that has faces for a bunch of dolls an animals. Those sacty eyes are expensive. Think how many kids i could make gifts for.

    Hubby and I haven't exchange gifts for years, but this year I went up north to see my ggs being born and after a month of being gone I got a really nice surprise when I got home. He made me a brand new sewing desk all by himself and his very first one. I think I'll keep him around another year or two. P.S. I really love it. I'll send pic when I can finally get them on line.

    Santa ordered my mega hoop from Going Batty (LQS). Yippee! Believe it or not, that was the least expensive place he could find it. Even on line was a almost hundred bucks more. Go figure, I thought sure it would be somewhere far away that would take forever to get here. It will be here in a week or so. I am so excited!

    Some of these santa gifts would be SO nice to get. I hope you all get lots of wonderful quilting gifts. I think my machines need servicing. Dang it! I hate shelling out that money at this time of year.

    You should also check out Quilters-warehouse.com. They have amazing prices for the Accuquilt.

    Well, I went Christmas shopping Saturday and it seems the only one I bought for was me. Not quilt stuff, but things I had wanted a long time. While in Walmart looking for some things for the grandkids, I spotted an enameled cast iron dutch oven. I've wanted one for a long time, so I bought it. Then I got home and decided to once again check on line for a KitchenAid stand mixer. I have been looking for a couple of years, so I found the Arteson model on for $349 at Macy's. There was a $30 rebate and they deliver free. But I decided to check locally at Bed Bath & Beyond. They offered the same $349 price, plus the $30 rebate, and I had a coupon for 20% off. I also had $10 left on a gift card, so I was able to buy the mixer for $239.00. I am one happy camper.

    Next week I promise to shop for everybody else on my list.

    I have told my children not to get me any gifts..THere are 14 grandkids and they should concentrate on them...If I have any money after Christmas, and moving the end of December, I will splurge and get what I really want..a table to work on. I bet my best gift this year will be from the secret santa exchange, and the smiles on the grandbabies faces

    I asked my husband for today's Missouri Star 12 Days of Christmas deal -- a layer cake of light batiks. He can't get out to shop on his own any more so he was happy to oblige and will put the unopened package away when it arrives so it really will be a Christmas surprise.

    I asked for the Bernina software version 6 designer plus. I need it for my Bernina quilting frame and Quilt Motion software.

    i told my husband exactly what i want and where to get it, and now i'm afraid he has bought it, because i went ahead and ordered one on line, since i didn't think he would get me one. OOOOps!! oh, well. 2 of something good is twice as good as one! and it's on sale now, too! lol, just what i deserve!! pitooey! lololol. can't complain! but if i said i want jewelry it would never happen! i would love a longarm and tutoring to use it. but that will either have to be in my next life or my next husband! this will make only the 2nd time i have rec'd what i asked for. he's a great guy but he honestly believes i already have too much of everything so he can't get past that belief to get me something more. see why i shopped for myself? i asked for the 18" henry doll from pottery barn kids. finding the boy dolls is quite hard as very few lines make them. i have one from about 10 yrs ago, and now it looks like i'll be having twins (dolls, not babies!). i'll name them ben and henry. or ben and jerry? we'll see! 8-)

    Love these answers! It is amazing how many women buy thier own gifts. But, like you girls say, then you get exactly what you want/need.

    I make an Amazon wish list. It couldn't be easier for them. I also ask for gift cards from my favorite online shops. Works every time!
