Pat is very interested in my hobby (wish I could reciprocate, but looking at stars is as exciting to me as watching grass grow). He loves to go to the fabric store and LQS with me and he is my color consultant. He has gotten me out of the color rut more than once. I think it can be fabulous when a couple can share a hobby.
I remember reading about another couple on the QB where she makes the tops and he quilts them. Can't recall who they are though. As long as it works - count your blessings.
