I do this thing that is pretty simple and nondescript of making wishlists at all the places I like to shop such as
All of the above however (minus Amazon) are just wants. My needs are books, sewing supplies, art supplies and a good SLR Camera. Oh and some cute looking but good headphones for work while wandering the stacks. Something that does not go directly into my ear because I seem to frighten myself and other people alot when I can't hear anything else.
My selection of books can be easily be found on my Amazon wishlist as well as some sewing supplies. But I've posted a few below to save you the anxiety of looking through my long lists.
Next are Sewing Supplies. I need another smaller serger that I can travel with to my classes in a bind. I'm thinking Juki or Brother. Most likely Juki but the Babylock also calls to me with it's patented airflow threading system which would be a DREAM. Unfortunately I do not think that the machine is small enough to accomadate travel, also the jostling around in my car could be very bad for the lovely airflow system.
I'd also really like the Brother PED program to design my own embroideries and get new designs.
gathering foot would be a nice addition to my foot collection. I talk about it a lot in my CCAD CE class so I feel that I really need one.
Art Supplies. I really really want to get back into some more classical art practices like oil painting again. I have no oil paints and majority of my good brushes are missing/gone. One thing I didn't have before that I would love to have is a nice wooden easel. This table top one would be great so I can transport it from my upstairs to the basement drafting table and it would be compact also. It's not like I would ever stand and paint.
Now for the one thing I really feel I NEED is a digital SLR camera. I know I want a Nikon and most affordable one is a D40. This is something I think I can get on my own with my tax return but a little help never harmed anyone.
