    What's the first thing on your wish list? The one thing you want most but haven't yet bought?

    I would love to have a Pfaff sewing machine! I learned how to sew on a Pfaff but haven't been fortunate enough to buy one. I keep trying to take mom's but she keeps a close eye on it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    A bigger sewing room! I love my house and don't want to move, but for the right sewing room, I'd sell in an instant!

    A real sewing room - and if I'm really dreaming big, it'll be a fully decked out one. Cutting table, ironing area, storage that is plentiful, attractive and accessible. You get the idea, lol.

    Maybe an Accucut Go. Don't really want one enough to buy it, but again, if I'm dreaming...

    More realistic? Sewing furniture, as in a Horn or Koala type sewing table and a chair to match.

    Ditto!

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to have all of these new toys to play with and no money worries to use them and even share the new toys with our quilty friends here! And of course, a house built around the best of the best sewing rooms! A beautiful room with a beautiful view of a lake! If I am dreaming I am going for the gold!

    I want a Viking embroidery machine and all of the thread and patterns that go with it. The one I want is about $6000. I wouldn't mind a bigger sewing room, either. 30' x 30' would be nice! A qilting machine would be ok, too. Maybe if I win the big one!!

    I wish for a lamp to see what I am sewing better. Nothing big but the lighting is not great here. I could have a ton of things but without light.. its not good. I have two hours morning sun in the kitchen with the lights on (lots of pine trees outside).. then by mid/late day forget it. Its mood lighting. I look good in it however the seams I am sewing never look good in it!

    1. A place to sew that is bigger than 2' by 3'
    2. A hand quilting frame that I can do bigger quilts on without having to scrunch everything up and do it in tiny sections. I have the plans to make one just haven't done it because I have no place for it.

    I want a house with bigger rooms--not more rooms, but bigger ones. The biggest would be for sewing. I'm really tired of being in cramped quarters.
    The other thing I want is a servant to put away fabric after I'm done with it and keep everything organized for me.
    Since I'm unlikely to get either of those things, I guess I'll just have to make do with things as they are.

    right now it is a fabric that looks like the oiled rice paper used in asian parasols, preferably with a pattern on it that will match the geisha kimono quilt i am working on. It's driving me crazy just looking for it.

    I'd love the have a room for sewing instead of a corner, but that would mean DD's and DS and DGD would have to move out. I don't want that so I'd have to wish for a bigger house.

    1. A long arm.
    2. Bernina 830 or Brother Quattro with a larger embroidery area

    Don't expect that I will ever have any of these unless we win the lottery...oh, that's right, you have to play to win.:D

    But really I am lucky to have what I do! So I give thanks.

    BACKING!!!! I am nearly at a stand still. I say nearly because I have one large quilt in a frame and a lap quilt in a hoop. I CAN work on these, but I want so much to get started on other things. I have three tops DONE, and I want to get going on the green and purple one for my sister. I have loads of batting, and other stuff, but the tops have to wait till the tax money comes in.

    1. a bigger room to be able to do all in here. I have room for a sewing machine, my embroidery machine, and computer. To iron I have to go to kitchen, no space left in here to set it up.
    2. time enough to do all my ""to do"" list.
    3. money to do all my ""to do"" list.
