    My husband has never made that remark about my fabric although it would be true. LOL He has remarked about the cost of some things. That is when I remind him that he has more money in one antique car that never leaves the garage than I do in all my fabric, machines and notions. He just smiles and leaves me alone.

    That's the trick, make sure hubby has a hobby where he's collecting as much as you (I prefer to say I have a fabric collection vs. stash). My hubby woodworks, he collects chunks of wood like I collect fabric. Oh, and like sandypants hubby, let's not forget the 2 life size tractors he has as well as his collection of miniature tractors.
    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.

    What are comic book backings? Pieces of cardboard? Sorry, my ignorance in these matters is showing.

    My husband does not have a hobby...owns a business so he figures that's all he needs. He has no idea what I have or pay...I work too so I figure I earned it! I also bought the comic boards and the bigger plastic ones and have a vision of a neat sewing room...we shall see. Right now most of my stuff is pulled out into the center of the room so it can be taken care of properly. Hope it works!

    Yes, they are pieces of cardboard, but they are acid free, which is good for wrapping fabric around. You can find them online or comic book stores. I got mine from Amazon and Ebay. Just put in search "Comic book backings" and that should bring up places to purchase. Hope that helps.

    Boy, I hope you can all be patient about seeing my organized fabric, because DH still hasn't finished with the shelves. I'm not saying anything nasty about it, but it rhymes with wazy......Must be patient....which is not me.

    This is so true!!!! My DH's car AKA "the Baby" costs way more than quilting does!
