    A funny hat/cap or a scarf – or better some wool/fabric so that I can make it myself. I never have too many of these :-)

    My dream gift for Christmas is having my craft hut redone. I have a great little extra mini house out back but the inside is not finished, I have no shelving, no heat or insulation, and I would love my space organized and cleared up so I could have my sewing and crafting out at the same time and not have to choose between the two.

    If Im being selfish, Is it too much to ask for everything for sewing?! I would love to learn how to be more skilled in sewing (and be able to do it more frequently) and have a dream room with a sewing machine, dressform mannequin, a serger, rulers, cutting boards, scissors, countless colorful thread, a table to work on, patterns and endless fabric! How about throwing in a tutor as well! Sadly, I have a sewing machine thats collecting dust and have been making do with some really cheap scissors ( a rotary cutter would be nice too) and i dont even own black thread! i know, its pretty sad.

    To not be selfish: food, clean water, shoes and joy in everyones hearts :)
