Then there is the bed. Another wish is to just get to sleep a full night in a bed, by myself. Don't get me wrong, I love waking up to L's mischievious smile and kids under my feet and on my legs, but not every. Single. Morning. SPACE PEOPLE! I know, one day I will wish they were there. Yeah, you obviously don't know me very well and how much I covet my sleep and personal space.
But I digress, this is a wish list that has me feeling old. Yet, it has me feeling somewhat accomplished, even if just a little. It will give me learning room and able to create and gift and feel skillful and important even if only to my children. My daughter thinks I can make everything she sees on TV. I'm flattered, it's just that reality is gonna be quite the kick in the pants when she gets older and those rose coloured glasses start to chip their colour. For now she can believe that I can make everything her little heart desires.
So there is a theme to my list, can you see what it is?
A rotary cutter, clear ruler and mat would definitely help me with some projects that I'd like to start on, but refraining from
This dressmakers dummy is gorgeous. I think right now I more want it for decoration, although eventually I would love to start making dresses and such.
And check out these beautiful fabrics from IKEA. Yes, we now have one in Winnipeg. I am tempted to venture in just to purchase these awesome patterns. Or, someone could just do that for me and gift me a yard or two of each. *wink wink*
So there you have it. My list. A new sewing machine would be on there, but my wonderful husband bought me one for my birthday. I can't wait to use it!
