I need to keep my family's  German Heritage alive.  The customs that my siblings and I grew up with need to be carried on thru our posterity.  

I need all things Poodle.  When I was a little girl, the next door neighbor had a beautiful Standard Poodle.  I would sit on my back porch and watch that poodle gracefully prance in the yard. If it was cold weather I would watch out the window until they let him out, then I would sneak out side with my  blankie and watch him he would come to the fence and lick my tiny fingers.  I wanted to be a Standard Poodle because of the grace. I could not become a poodle so I settled for owning them and sharing their grace.

I need my grandchildren 2 girls and 3 boys. Each so very different and unique. I need their hugs and smiles to help get me through the day. I need the humor that they provide, ideas,and stories.
I love to see the things they do like their daddy did when he was a boy.

I need sewing needles that are easy to thread because I am loosing my sight. So much of time while sewing is spent trying to thread needles.

I need my religion in my life.  I am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.
I believe in Christ. I need to pray and prayer gives me peace.

I need my daughter and daughter in law. They are my rocks.  When I an down they always pick me up.

I need fabric it makes me feel good. Sometimes I just sit in my sewing room and look at the yards and yards of GLORIOUS fabric.  If they made a candle that smelled like new fabric I would buy them all.

I need my sisters in my life. If I have trouble cutting a pattern out one of them will always do it for me.  If I go to a quilting class my sister will do the block for me because I have trouble seeing it.  I need them because I love them.

I need to go to my happiest place on earth at least once a week. For me the happiest place on earth is the DI a chain of thrift stores here in Utah and a few other western states.  I find fabulous  things there.

I need pink, It helps me feel light and happy.

I need sparkles, They help me feel bright.

I need my best fuzzy friends, they love me unconditionally and never talk back.

I need sand paper and spray paint because I love to make something out of something else.

I need my sweet husband, he has been my best friend for 41 years. He takes care of me and works hard every day. He has made my dreams come true.

I need books and magazines I have been a reader all my life.  I have to read on my Ipad now or listen to my Kindle.  I feel very blessed to have these thing available.  I still feel the need to have reading material in my hands.

I need Duck Dynasty.  I love their family connection.  It reminds me of our family.  (we do not eat squirrel or game of any kind.)

I need Vintage be cause I love it.

I need hugs from my 2 boys. They always say I love you.

I need Swaps. It keeps me creative and helps making friends on the Internet.

I need to make people happy.  I like to buy little things that I know people will like.


  1. What a sweet list...we love the duck boys too!

  2. This is a nice list. Spray paint and sand paper are definitely a must, a coat of spray paint can change and old item into something brand new. I also love the idea of of a new fabric candle scent.

  3. i LOVE sandpaper too! i've been absolutely nuts because i am out of 100 grit and need to remember to buy some more. :)
