Apart from all these, if you find any fun fabric I wont mind you buying it for me...

Also, please leave a comment - if you want to surprise me - make it anonymous - after you have bought something... So that others wont think of buying it for me... LOL


And yes, making a wish list is my favorite thing this friday... Whats yours??? Hop over to Quilting in my Pyjamas and tell us...

All my family members, do not bother to read the P.S.

P.S. I had a lot of fun making this list... Even if I do not get anyof these for my birthday, I have really enjoyed just making this list - its as good as buying all this stuff!!!

Cheers again!


  1. That's quite a list! There are some lovely things on it as well...Maybe I should start making a birthday list for next year...

  2. Shruti, I love it! You brought a big smile to my face this morning! I think you need to add another book to your list! I stumbled upon Malka Dubrawsky, and her book that I already bought but she is now giving away on her blog, "Fresh Quilting, Fearless Color, Design & Inspiration." I'm making the coasters in the book and they're super easy. I love her bright fabrics. Check out her blog, "A Stitch in Dye."

  3. Haha! I love this post, you have some great pieces on your wish list :-)
    My favorite thing about your post is the note for your family not to read the PS LOL

  4. Hey those are some my favorite things too Shruti. :-)

    My birthday is December 30, not that far off from yours. Only I'll be 47. Happy Birthday to my fellow Capricorn!

  5. A great idea Shruti, I think I'll start working on a post for my birthday list for next year.

  6. I hope you get everything on your list! Great post!

  7. Wish lists are always sigh and smile inducing. Thanks for sharing yours :) Hope you have a wonderful birthday.

    I have no recollection of my 32nd birthday. I'm thinking that was a bad year for me!

  8. Love your wish list! I celebrate my birthday next week...perhaps I should make a list too. :)


Thank you for your comments... I try to reply to all of them personally, but sometimes life is just too fast to do that... But I love hearing from you...
