Thank you so much to Sarah, Karin, Mamafitz, Elaina, Mary, Katherine, Carla, Becky, Julie, Summerset, Cindy and Ivalyn for talking back to my confession last week! I asked what everyone was hoping that Santa would bring this year sewing-wise...
Three people called out a gift that I bet everyone single one of us would love to have - more time to sew! And Cindy actually has a plan to get it - for her Christmas gift, she asked her family to chip in and help with the household chores, giving her some more free time!
The other gift mentioned by three people was some kind of gift card for fabric and other sewing supplies - whether it be to Joann's, the Atlanta Thread & Supply Co, or the neighborhood fabric store.
A couple of people are hoping for books - Karin always enjoys inspirational sewing & photo books and Becky is hoping for one on fitting alterations. Along the same educational lines, Sarah is hoping for a manual and maybe even some lessons on her serger
A couple of folks called out general supplies for the sewing room - for example, Karin called out these cute wooden bobbins wound with ribbon from Clothkits.
On the "big gift" front, Becky has already been given her first non-duct tape dress form from her parents; Ivalyn played Santa to herself and got a Babylock Enterprise; and Mamafitz is hoping that Santa will bring her speakers for her iPod, so that she can have music in her sewing room & kitchen. What great gifts!
Finally, I started with one gift that I'm sure we'd all love - time - and I'll end with an idea from Cindy for another gift that I think we'd all like - more peace and love in this world, and less hate and fear...
Even if, like Elaina, Christmas isn't your favorite holiday (and it certainly can be stressful!), I hope that each and every one of you have a wonderful time with family and friends, saying goodbye to 2010 and welcoming in 2011 ! :)
