Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Everyone is born right handed, only the gifted overcome it.
I have already committed my felonies, so people don't have to worry. (Russell Means)
I swear to you, I am guilty of only being Indian. That's why I am here. (Leonard Peltier)
lol, that works too ;-)
I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire
I love when my husband goes to the fabric store with me. He helps me match fabrics, he gets the number and waits by the cutting table while I am still shopping, and best of all, he's always asking me if I need anything else...I always end up buying more than was on my list.
When I come out of the fabric store with a pkg. my DH always says "Is that all you bought."? He is an enabler, gotta love -em
I don't bother bringing my DH. I know he doesn't really enjoy the experience. Mainly based on the fact that when there is a big sale at Joann's the people in my area get a bit rude. No excuse me's, or anything; lots of getting pushed out of the way etc. (one of the many reasons I keep trying out smaller LQS to find one that works)
So I figure I'm going to have more fun without him complaining anyway. So he tells me to have fun, I have my money limit, and I go have a blast!
Who says quilting isn't a shared experience with the spouse!
no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop
That said, I'm assuming the "punishment" and "hiding" comments are made in jest!
By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.
