    I don't know what to tell you. My DH becomes a big baby when he is sick or is stuck inside for any reason. Get him to cut out blocks for you. If he won't do it then he is not that bored. Lol

    WHAT!?!

    You just never know.....
    I was just about to suggest you teach him to make a quilt. Maybe he needs a cover for something in his workshop? Or tell him he can be "helping" you.

    Can he sit by the computer? How about he play some online games?
    The Army has a good one, and it's free: http://www.americasarmy.com/
    There are many others, war, adventure, fantasy, puzzle, etc. games.

    Poor thing....they can be babies can't they. I assume you have tried the usual reading, watching TV, etc. If he can get to a computer or laptop, alot of men LOVE some of these new war type games that are out now. Maybe look out in his garage and see if he has things that need greased or organized....like maybe he has a big thing of nuts/bolts/screws that need sorted. Get him some jelly jars and a big towel to keep the bed clean and let him start organizing them. I'll be praying for him to have a speedy recovery and for you to have lots of time AWAY...LOL.

    Can he organize your patterns or magazines in boxes? sort your fat quarters by color? iron fabrics after you've washed them? Sit by your machine and iron your pieces after you've sewed seams...get hime involved and maybe he'll get hooked.

    DD had shoulder surgery a month ago and she is only happy when she is doing something with me. I'm hoping to find something on this thread to get her busy.
