    What's on your Christmas list?

    DH asked me last night what I would like for Christmas. I have so many things I'd like, that I didn't really know what to tell him. It did get me wondering, what are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    The only thing I want this year is E-Quilt 7 program. And praying I will enjoy it! Sometimes I think I want things and then they don't thrill me like I hoped...but this one is too expensive to not use...so I will learn...I will...yes!!

    I asked for a Work Sharp knife sharpener, and 2 books on sewing machine attachments that had been languishing in my Wish List on Amazon for 2 years. He told me to order what I wanted so I threw in the Ball Complete Book of Canning - since he was feeling generous

    I got a new HE washer and dryer, that are stacked. The element went out in the dryer in my Apt. and the owner said get it fixed or buy a new one. I am on SS so that was'nt going to happen. I was so upset. When my ex-husband heard about it, he bought them for me. I can not tell you how surprised I was!!

    I asked for EQ7 and Blockbase, a few quilting books and patterns, and a porcelain coated cast iron dutch oven.

    I'm like Gramie bj - ask me what I want and my mind goes blank.

    There is a pattern called Asian Scrappy Road that was in Quilters World Magazine in Oct 2011. That's the only thing that comes to mind. I will probably give it to myself. There's not really a lot I need. I'd be very happy with a pretty day and lots of time for sewing. I don't plan on cooking since it will only be my husband and me. Maybe I'll get my quiet day and can sew away.

    Hey, francie, I think it's also time to get him a longarm for Christmas! (Equivalent gift to the snowblower!)
    As for me, I asked for a Quilter's Slidelock ruler, and dd ordered me one. Yay! I haven't made it to the er yet, so I thought my luck may be running out, and I better get one fast. Hope you all get something fun and useful1

    Last year I got some Bali Pops along with the pattern to make a beautiful paper-pieced quilt. It was a great gift and I hope to get something similar this year. Also on my list are "staples" (dishwasher soap, coffee, toilet paper, etc.) so that I can spend more money on fabrics. Last year my daughter gave me a 24-pak of toilet paper and individually wrapped each roll and tied it with a ribbon. We're still laughing about it.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I have a cone thread holder from Connecting Threads on my Christmas list for my sewing room. New tires for the car are needed, so my Christmas list isn't very long this year.

    I keep the puzzle board up all year long as I sew a little and then go put a few pieces of the puzzle in, so I am getting a puzzle called "Cat on a quilt" by Doug Knudson. It also has an old singer treadle sewing machine in it. I found it on amazon and I can't wait to get it, but I won't start on it until after Christmas, I promise. Here is the website http://www.amazon.com/Quilt-1000pc-J...Cat+on+a+quilt

    My DH once gave me a weed whacker for Mother's day. I accepted the gift quietly and got even for Father's day. The quilt shop I worked in had just got in an expensive quilting book that I really wanted so I gave it to him for Father's Day...never get mad, just get even!

    Thankfully, DH hasn't given me anything I haven't asked for. He has bought a crock pot for me for Christmas before, but I did ask him for it. The handle broke on it last week, so Santa might have to bring me another if we can't fix that. He offered to just give me money so spend at a LQS, but I thought it'd be fun to give him some options and let him surprise me....I guess I'll have to think on it some more!

    I want a Laura Ashley, Innov-is NX-2000 Brother sewing machine & I had saved over half of the cost myself, so my husband is going to get it for me as soon as we get a check he's expecting! The wait is killing me. I'm SO excited!!! Can't wait to bring it home and start using it! I downloaded manuals for it yesterday and there's 5 of them! That's a little intimidating, but at least I'll know the questions to ask when I get my class for it! :-) He's really outdone himself this year!! I must have been incredibly good all year! LOL!!

    I told my daughter the same thing that I used to tell my ex; fix my house for me. I can buy (as long as I have the money) what I want but I can't do the repairs needed around my house. Mostly due to my ex's half way of fixing things. My daughters boy friend just painted my living room the way I wanted and fixed my cieling fan and my outlets and is trying to do what ever he can to make me happy. I told him I couldn't aske for more and that he'll never know how happy he has made me. He says its nothing, I told him its the best gift he could give. I could never get this thru my ex's head. Gifts are whatever makes someone happy and they don't have to be bought from a store. The best gifts are definitely when you do something that needs to be done for someone who can't do it or afford to pay someone to do it themselves. My two youngest kids (early 20's) know me so well they don't even ask. Which I love as well. It's so nice right now when I go home and can look at my living room and just smile at what this young man has done for me. He has severe asthma so it's been hard on him doing this work and it takes longer than normaly but he does what he can when he can.

    Don't want to sound like a "goody two shoes" but after my sons and husband kept asking and I kept thinking my wish is for my family to be together and whatever they would spend on me I wanted them to give it to a charity. After I told this to my husband he agreed the he wanted the boys to do the same. We are very lucky at this time of our life to be able to buy what we want when we need it but we have been on the other end where we had no income coming in at Christmas (all our gifts were homemade with what we had on hand). So we will have a big dinner with family and friends and that is all I really want. Don't think there aren't things that I could come up with on a want list, just this year it isn't important. Hope this wasn't a downer of a post. Wishing you and your's a Merry Christmas.

    I asked for a bread making machine and bread machine cookbook and a few Thomas Kinkade prints. But we just had the transmission rebuilt in our SUV and hubby is picking it up today. So that sure has put a big dent in our wallets. But I will be happy with anything. I pretty much buy what I want thru out the year. I really want to focus on CHRIST in CHRISTmas.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    If you get your bread machine go to King Arthurs web site; lots of recipes, even if you don't get one. I have the zorishki (sorry not the right spelling) I love it. I've had several others and this is the second one I've had with this brand and when the first one went out I got another one. Alot of bread makers you can make jams jellies, cakes lots of good stuff. This one has a preheat so my liquid is always the right temp for the yeast and it turns out great. Good luck and have a blessed Merry Christmas
