    I was in my sewing room paper piecing and my DH came up stairs to see what I was doing. He spent the entire afternoon with me lining up the fabric pcs. for me to stitch on next, pressing and trimming. I offered to get him going on one of my other machines but he declined. It was awesome to have someone to tear the paper off the back of my blocks and having his company for the afternoon was really nice.

    That was really sweet of him!!!
    Mine doesn't help me unless I need a quilt held up for pictures or I need him to help me get into some of my totes full of fabrics from the garage, or unless I need his help for sandwiching a quilt. I do ask him about color and design choices. I share my "sewing" room with him and the computers. I enjoy having him in the same room with me and we can talk and I can throw things at him now and then.

    No he does not and I like it that way. In fact today I screamed "out! out! OUT!" at him because I was counting pieces (had 140+ to count) and he was saying "27, 48, 3, 89". Then he picked up my 100+ 1" x 2" pinned pieces that were sorted by color, held the pin head in his finger tips and asked "what would you do if I pulled this pin out - is it important?" I told him I would stab him with the pin and shooed him out. He can be such a child sometimes. He likes to wind me up.

    BUT ... when I ask him to help me photograph a quilt, or fold an extra large piece of fabric, or whatever - he's always a great help.

    Yup. he helps pick out patterns, fabrics. help me decide what i want to put where on blocks and purses. Now that I have a LA, as soon as it is running properly, I bet he tries it out. he won't the regular machines, especially my 1600 (its really fast and scary to him). But he did make a comment at a show one time how he didn't want to try it because he's afraid he would like it. OMG! What if we had 2 long arms! LMAO

    He moves furniture, hang things on the wall, and I do ask his opinion about some quilts, but he has no interest in quilting and I have no interest in having him "help" me with any of it. He has his workshop where he does his woodworking and I stay out of it. Works best that way.
