I want clean countertops.


I want all the doors in my house painted blue, pink and yellow.


I want to sit on that chair in the corner and read my magazine.

I want my walls that color of blue.


And the walls that aren't blue, I want them to be red.
Yes, I do.

I want pinecones in a bowl and not all over my front lawn.


I want my husband to sit in that blue chair and
I will stare at him from across the clean floor for hours.
Yes, I will.
I want to be tucked into bed each night with this quilt surrounding me.


I want to accent my creative space with brown, pink and lots of white.
(Anne Sutton's workplace)

Um, this is a stretch for me because I do not want a grey cat. Already had one. He, Grey Grey, ran away and broke my heart. And the dog is just too small for me.
And so I want a nice crisp ironed white shirt hanging in my closet.

  6. I'm deferring my entry in this one to win another day. I just wanted to say that we have a big red weathered door outside our unit by the trash. Should I bring it in?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Right now I want a chocoloate pie... or for my one year old to sleep through the night (which almost never happens, by the way!), and I want a lot of free time to finish the many many sewing projects that I have all planned out, but have done very little on.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I want to be spending the day doing whatever I feel like and not have to worry about housework or any other jobs. I want a week off cooking so I can do the above but most of all I want to see my grandbabies who live in another country!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I want more time to work on my quilts in progress :-) That's all.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I want my home to be completely, spotlessly clean and our five children to behave perfectly, while I sit and cut out applique' pieces for the quilt I'm working on. That's what I want.

    Thanks!!

  11. I want to be able to say that there's nothing I want.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I want my husbands business to do well, and I want to be able to buy a house and build his shop so we only have one payment instead of two. And I really want to pay his dad off so that he can run his business by himself without money hanging over his head!! I also want my children to stay healthy, and for my baby to do well not breastfeeding, oh, and the engorement to go away. Owch!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. There is many many things I want, but for today Thursday, I just want it to be a clock, so I am on my way home from work planning for sewing tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I want my dear husband to make a decision about the house I found online so we can get moving back to NC. I want a room dedicated just to my crafting. And it should be big enough where I can dedicate a sizeable space to each craft. Don't want my sewing mixed up with my painting. And I want a machine that can do all the quilting for me. I am terrible at free motion quilting, and hand quilting is something I just don't think I want to attempt.
    ~Tootles for now!

  15. I'd like the magazine of course; a few night's sound rest in a row; a quiet spot where I can sew when I cannot sleep, without disturbing the family; a really good haircut.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Right now I desperately want another bedroom on this house! I know that is a big want, but with my oldest daughter having to sleep in the den on the pull out couch it is not a good situation and if there was just one more bedroom she could have her own room and solve a lot of problems!
    Blessings,
    Diane

    ReplyDelete
  24. I want to hear no more whining (4-yr-old), screaming (2-yr-old), or crying (11-mo-old) for the rest of the day! That's all I want! (Oh, and a quilting magazine to read in my perfectly quiet, calm, and peaceful home would be nice too!)

  41. I want to feel energetic to tackle cleaning up my messy house after my grandchildren went home. I want to be done paying bills so I can do something more fun. I want to finish a project today and pin it up on the wall to look at it for awhile. I want it to be warm enough to sit out on the porch and breathe fresh air. I want my dogs to stop following me everywhere I go...just for today. I want...I want...I want...

    ReplyDelete
  42. I want a yummy barbequed hamburger hot off the grill, only there is fresh new snow covering it all up. I was lucky enough to meet Linda Jenkins from Piece of Cake designs.

Pick me, pick me!

  43. I want more time to sew! And I am wanting to get EQ6 so I can play with ideas before I sew them. And that magazine and its companion would help.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just found you through Jenn's blog. Such a fun blog you have!

    So what do I want? Well I want to make just a little more time in my days to be creative with my kids. I find that hard to do. I'm so worried about keeping up with it all that I forget to do the crafty fun things with my kids as much as I would like to. I'd also like to make more time to sew with all of my yummy fabrics.

    ReplyDelete

  63. It's already thursday afternoon in Norway and I am packing my bags to go on a cabintrip with some good quilting friends this weekend. So I am trying to decide which projects I want to bring. Both for handsewing and machinesewing. My sewingmachine is already out in the car. So my wants for thursday is that I manage to pack all things I want to bring. But I guess I will bring too much as usual.

    ReplyDelete

  66. Did you say subway sandwich? WE don't have subway on this island.....I want a subway....and I want to be entered into your drawing.

    ReplyDelete

I want this baby to be born, but I don't want to give birth. I don't think I'm going to get out of that one though. :-)

  69. I want to have your humor when looking/lusting over all those pictures! LOL. I want warm, sunshiney weather to warm my old bones....a sunroom where I can curl up like a cat in the sunshine streak would do as well. I want my sewing room to be repainting this coming week when my daughter is on spring break. I want a beachy calm palette in there. I want my sores to heal and not hurt any more....

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would just like to get more of my housework done today. I am doing good for me though. Linda Gerig

    ReplyDelete
  71. How eerie! I too want a subway sammie for dinner (but only because I am working my second job tonight). I also want to finish the 5 projects I have going right now, or at least make some good progress!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I want warm weather for Thunder over Louisville on Saturday. I want shiny dust-free floors all through my house. I want all my windows cleaned so the sunshine doesn't come through in streaks. I want it to be warm enough to hang my sheets outside to dry. I want my newly planted flowers and vegetables to thrive and bring me much joy (and vegetables) this summer. Lastly, I want more time in the day so I can SEW!!! I think that's about it. A maid wouldn't be bad either. Neither would perfect flawless skin and a thinner body and glaring white teeth. While we're at it, maybe longer, thicker eyelashes. O.K. I'm done now. You asked.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I want to win the lottery. I want solicitors to stop calling my blocked number. I want to finish my three quilts on the back burner. I want to be a size 4. I want summer to get here. I could go on and on....

    ReplyDelete
  79. My Thursday was made when I found Bayer Back and Body aspirin for 50% off! Somehow I woke up old and achy. Now for my evening. I want my 17 pillows finished for the Brownie sewing lesson tomorrow. A clean house may be too much to ask for, but the magazine isn't!
    Wish me luck!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  83. Silly me. I kept looking at the quilts in all those pictures.

    Don't you love Ann Sutton's work space? I would die of happiness if I had that.

    And c'mon, three peach sodas would make you have to run inside a couple of times and you wouldn't enjoy that lawn chair.
