Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
If he didn't have to put up the shelves, he should have anything to complain about, Right?????
A friend of mine just went through a hugh remodel and her husband became fully aware of her stash. It is funny now seeing the creative ways she can take fabric into her home. I am so lucky that my husband is very supportive of my quilting addiction. I will make a scrap quilt once in a while and I make a big deal about it so he nows I am getting the most out of my fabric. (He loves that). He has not suggested my attending a Quilting Anonymous meeting as of yet. He is just enjoying my passion for quilting and just gets up and goes to work. LOL... O' if he only new
lollollol that is great! when we were visiting at thanksgiving i spent the first day w/elderly q friend. left with a bag of scraps. when he came out of the shower that night he found me sitting in the floor quietly and happily sorting thru and folding my newest treasure trove. [i do miniatures mostly] then he said...you have a serious problem..you know that?...i said...so if it was rusty metal it would be you sitting here lollollol [he does ornamental blacksmithing] guess we both have our 'issues' lollollol
my husband collects rocking chairs, so i just remind him of all of them ;-]
heeheee that is right up there with 'rusty metal' ....isn't it great when 'they' have a little tic too? lollol
mine has also discovered guns and shooting ... which is okay on several levels since i like it too. but, having a husband with a pricey hobby and/or one that takes up space sure does take the pressure off a quilting woman. ~~~hahaha~~~
lollol...amen to all that you said. love it!!!
I had the same problem. We built a new house and I turned two spare bedrooms into a sewing room. DH put shelves in the two closets the width of the room. Had to be two closets because of the width. I had double doors and lights installed. As I unpacked I sorted and refolded all my fabrics by color. Only trouble is he can now see exactly how much I have. Almost shocked myself. I just finished a kingsized quilt top which I bought new fabric for. I've made myself a promise that the next one will come from my stash. No more new fabric till I use some of what I have.
sigh!!! i have a terrible problem w/my dh and fabric...when he's away on a job he goes to fleamkts & auctions and buys me antique fab and antique cookbooks...and trust me..it is not all good lollollol
quilt fabric stores are another issue...he "helps" me shop...i always end up just skipping the list and buying more than i intended to.
for many years every time his company packed us up to go to nxt job...he would say 'are you taking all that fabric again! you never do anything with it!' and then along came my first quilts...then he noticed the soft sculpture dolls that i made and had been making ...but now they were going to his family members and friends..
so now he is my quiltfabricbuying buddy!
