My bf asked me what I wanted for Valentine's day. hmm good question. I've got plenty of fabric and patterns. Decent enough sewing machine, serger and coverstitch machine. Any good sewing related suggestions??

Since your looking for ideas...hmm, since I finally have a good iron, I would love a good set of metal design styling rulers... or rolls of swedish tracing paper.... or great marking pens or chalk pens and waxed coloured tracing sheets that actually worked *well* with a tracing wheel.....or a good book and DVD.....or a stack of stretch twin & triple needles in different sizes, as I'm always breaking them. Sorry, but I'm terribly practical when it comes to gifts.

How about a decent length of a beautiful red silk or velvet? Preferably wrapped around a box of chocs.

I already got one Valentines gift which was very unexpected from a friend.. Was so touched that she cared enough to go out of her way to send it to me.. It came on one of those days I really needed a pick me up.... So I say there is no better gift than true friendship on Valentines Day..
Although red velvet wrapped around chocolates would have been a great gift too..

I vote for this suggestion ~ going more for the silk but whatever... Sounds lovely to me.

I already got two new pairs of shoes. I am not allowed to wear them until Valentine's day, though, I had to go ahead and get them because they were on sale.

What about a trip to a fashion museum. Or, go see a romantic old movie at some movie festival, a dinner/movie place, or your living room. Keep your sketch pad handy.

A patio lunch in a people watching neighborhood? See if there are any design combinations that are intriguing?

Something to bring music into your sewing space?

Threads Archival DVD?

Electronic sketch pad like a Waacom Bamboo?

Netflix - don't laugh - I've been enjoying having Netflix on the ipad when I work on the computer or in the sewing room. It is more than just tv shows and movies.

An evening alone with no phone, no smart phone, no texting, no emails --- no sewing

Subject: What do I want for Valentines day? Date: 2/8/12 1:18 PM

So many great suggestions. I could probably use a steam iron. I only have a dry one at the moment. More fabric and chocolate is always needed. I love shoes but rarely find a size 5 in stores anymore. You should see the horridly pink, shiny silver and more pink children's running shoes I bought recently out of desperation. A trip to a fashion museum would be great. Even greater if they let me touch the stuff. a7yrstitch I have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon prime that has video streaming and occasionally watch the Suze Orman show free on iTunes. Love catching up on show while sewing. I was also thinking of a subscription to Burda magazine. Oh the choices.

I got an engagement ring. I think my guy is tired of the sewing stuff. lol

I did ask for a Burda sub, but as he says, I don't use the ones I have now.

Elaina, What a great gift! And, what a great plan; there is at least one other PR member who will want to wear a fellow out/down with sewing gifts.

All fun aside, congratulations.
