    Sounds like a caring husband to me. Do cut back. Your health comes first.

    My husband has done that to me to as I have this habit of going till I drop. After I had my heart attack I couldn't argue with him about it. It was a good thing that he reminds me when I am over doing things and I am glad he does.

    I tell him that quilting is my "stress" relief and when I get "stressed" I quilt. He is lucky to get a meal when I am "stressed" lol
    And then he will surprise
    me with a quilt pattern he wants me to make

    OK, I have to ask: "If you sew one more stitch......" is followed by what? WHAT IS the unspoken threat?

    Pat could try that tactic but he knows better. After all of our time together, he realizes that an ultimatum WILL be met by me doing EXACTLY what I'm not supposed to. HA!

    My husband does not like to be "neglected " by my quilt activities so I try to do my quilting projects while he is at work or when he is exercising. He also gets frustrated when I sit in my cozy corner doing hand sewing instead of sitting next to him while he watches TV (he thinks he is being ignored-like I could pry him from his football, etc.). Soooo I wait until he is home and I sit next to him and fold HIS clothes while we watch TV together..

    I think do yourself a favor and limit yourself--not by anyone elses time table ! be good to yourself and try to make that list shorter. no fun for anyone if you are worn out.
    good luck getting yourself through this time warp!!
