    My husband complains if I want to spend money on fabric, if it's only $5.00! I have to sneak it in so he doesn't get mad. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Not I, as a matter of fact my husband helps me pick out fabrics to work with.

    Mine doesn't get mad, but he certainly rolls his eyes... and I do *not* spend large amounts on fabric when he's with me. He doesn't get mad, but I don't want to hear it!

    No, quite the opposite, mine encourages me and is always interested in what I buy!

    I have to say Sylvia mine is the same as yours. Mine just doesnt get it. He always say you can just go buy a bed in a bag for 40$ why do you need to spend all that money on a quilt What I do is buy 1 yard here 1 yard there. Doesnt make for a good amount if you want to plan a quilt but it makes nice scrappy quilts
    One day maybe but for now he hates it

    I'm so sorry you ladies have such negativity joined with your wonderful happy hobby! It's a good thing it creates SO much joy, it should override your DHs negativities!
