12 Days of Christmas II

And eleven of my favorite things! I'm being quite literal here: material objects that I own.

1) Fabric. I, um, have a lot of it.
2) All of my iThings (phone, tablet, computer).
3) Candy. I'm not <i>quite</i> as bad as Jared, but it's pretty damn close.
4) Grumpy Bear, the little Care Bear I had as a kid, still sits in my room and watches over me.
5) Our condo. We're so much happier here than in the house, you don't even know.
6) My car, the only one I've ever owned. Sue is 11 years old and still going strong! (She's a Super Ultra Low-Emissions Vehicle, SULEV, or Sue for short.)
7) My postcard collection that papers the walls of my office.
8) My clarinet, because even if I haven't played it in over a decade and a half, it's what brought me and Mr. Z together. <3
9) My sewing machine, because how else would I do anything with all that fabric?
10) My diaries. Even though I haven't kept one for a while, they've really helped me over the years.
11) My books: the fiction at home and the scholarly books at work.

What kind of postcards? Are they postcards you've received or collected? I have a whole stack of unused ones. Want them?

About a third of them are ones I've collected, another 2/3 were sent to me.

If you have postcards to get rid of, I'd love them! You have my address from the book, right? Which I never thanked you for? /o\

I do have your address. I am so happy I have found a home for them -- I will send them out this week.

And for the book, you are welcome. :D

re: 9

I don't know why, but I always imagined you sitting in a comfy chair and doing it all by hand. I mean, I know quilting isn't knitting, but still ... lol

Hee! I have made one quilt in my life entirely by hand. It was for my best friend's wedding, and it arrived before their first anniversary. :D
