    I posted the other day that my DH came up and helped out while I was piecing a top. Yesterday I wanted to go to Hancocks and the new JoAnns to take advatage of their 50% off sale for president's day. I asked DH if he wanted to go with me and he said yes. I'm starting a quilt for him so we picked out some beautiful stuff. He kept filling up the cart!!!!! I'd better leave him at home next time.

    The quilt we are making is an underwater scene with corals, grasses, tropical fish, sea turtles and a big shark looming behind the grasses and a scuba diver going for a big shark tooth on the sandy bottom. DH is a diver and collects sharks teeth.

    He was up until late drawing the shark and corals for me to use as patterns.

    I love that man, the time we're spending together on this project is so special.

    This is great. DH helps me plan too. We have two computers in the office/sewing room and he gets on one of them and spends time in there when I am sewing.

    Mine is supportive, he doesn't sew but has diffident ideas on color and design. Gotta love him! :)

    PS: I'm trying really hard to understand football, isn't easy!

    I love it! You have created another quilt addict! Enjoy making this quilt together, make a quilt label representing both of you.
