    Ghinger is a fantastic brand! My dream gift for the holidays would be a cutting table with fold-out arms. Every time I try to make something I always hurt my back bending over the floor trying to cut out patterns.

    My dream gift would be someone to pay my tuition. Or an end to my seemingly endless job hunt. Or if all else fails, then a contribution to the graduation travel fund…

    My dream gift would be some excellent sewing lessons. I can sew but I don’t always feel totally confident. I wish I knew for sure that I am doing things the right way and in the best way possible. Lots of fabric and notions would be nice too!

    Well, if I’m going to dream I’m going to dream big. I’d love to have a handicap accessible ranch flat home with a HUGE craft room in it so I’d have more room to work and organize my work space. Right now my work room is in the garage.

    My ideal holiday gift would be an extra day in the week dedicated solely to crafting. instead of a day of rest, a day of craft. :) Since that won’t happen, I would settle for a new serger.
