    Hi-
    The other day my husband asked me this question:
    "What do I need to quilt with?"

    I gave him a puzzled look - I thought that was what I was doing.

    He then told me that I've stuck with quilting longer than anything and that it is not that expensive of a hobby.
    I guess if you are not well off you make due with what you have and he likes what I make.

    So I got to thinking: What did he mean?
    Should I take him to the local quilt shop? NOT!!

    What do you think my husband meant? In 5 years we will have been married 25 years - is he planning a surprise?
    P.s. for christmas this year he gave me an apron and pj's that's the type of presents I get.

    Well, gosh... when I first read his statement.... I thought he wanted your advice on what HE needed to start quilting himself!!!! I don't know WHAT he means! lol (I've only been married 9 years, and I have to ask '20 questions'... )lol.

    I got a new Janome for Halloween, nothing for Christmas. Last week a new pearl necklace for my birthday in 2 weeks. So with those gifts, I don't feel bad about no gift for Christmas. I did not get him anything either.

    That is what I wanted to say after thinking about it. But they are out of our price range.
