    Now, there is some serious denial issues here I know. None of us want to really admit that we do this.. hiding and sneaking fabric into the house. I will begin and then perhaps you won't be so apprehensive to share your techniques. LOL

    1. In the trunk, under the spare tire, inside a bag of things I was sending to my mom's house.. that was a solid colored bag of course.

    2. In the sleeves of my coat as I carried it in.

    3. In my backpack, luckily I go to college and can stop on the way home at a fabric store and stuff some more in.

    4. In my lunchbox... no kidding...

    I would like to hear from others. LOL

    I don't buy much so no one at my house cares. They just laugh and shake their heads. lol

    No sneaking here. My husband and I make no comments on how we each spend money. We are both frugal people who don't spend above our means.

    Hubby is gone all week so there's no reason to hide it coming in...however...he NEVER goes into the room where it's piled...think he's afraid...and he should be, lol.

    I don't hide mine. I leave it out in the open and he never says anything or just doesn't notice. I'm not sure he really cares because he knows I will use it.

    Don't need to hide it - DH helps me shop for it most of the time.

    I don't hide fabric. My husband is fully aware of how much fabric and everything else there is in this house.

    Oh My.. You are so lucky. Mine just doesn't go look at the shelves anymore. He knows it is growing and just shakes his head and walks out. Then he goes to order more climbing gear!!
