Holiday Wish List

Happy December everyone! It is now the official start of the holiday season!

It is also the last day to mail in any stockings you have made for the Stockings for Kids drive. I have so many stockings right now and I am very appreciative of everyone who has contributed.

Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway that ends tomorrow at midnight EST for lots of fun prizes from our sponsors (lots and lots of fabric!)

Anyway with the beginning of December, I know many of us are struggling to finish up our holiday shopping (or perhaps finishing up our handmade gifts as the case may be) and so thought I'd share what sewing/quilting things are at the top of my wish list this year...who knows maybe it will inspire you (or your loved ones) in their holiday shopping...and hopefully you can share what you want so it can inspire me in my holiday shopping!

Ly's Sewing Wish List 2011

1. A binding foot for Nina (the Bernina) because that would speed up my quilt making process - and with a busted wrist it sure is difficult to hand sew those bindings on.
2. A fat quarter/half yard/yard/however much santa sees fit to give me set of Lotta Jansdotter's new fabric line Echo (loving those grays and blues and purples right now):

3. The new Modern Blocks book. A lot of people I know have contributed to this book and I am excited to see all the different blocks in it.

4. Block Party. I've heard nothing but good things about this book and think it would make an excellent addition to my sewing library.

So, what's on your holiday crafty wish list this year?

Wow. I think you pretty much hit on everything I would want. :) But I hadn't even heard of a binding foot... I wonder if there is one for my machine. I suck at machine binding.

I have a binding foot that I have NEVER used!

I bought that Modern Blocks book and I love it! Made my NuBee blocks with one of them already!

Pieces to Love said...

After having a not so good morning in the sewing department, I would like a new machine that will take whatever I throw at it, whether it be the simple seams of piecing a quilt or the abuse of quilting a king sized quilt. Oh, and if did embroidery that would be bonus points.

Your list looks great! I already bought the Block Party book and I love it dearly. That fabric is fabulous! Plus, I'm going to put on my wish list that your wrist heals quickly!! :-)

I got some of that echo when it came out, and now I want MORE MORE MORE!! And those books are also on my wish list! Also, I love the name of your machine, so cute.
