    Santa left it~!

    Why not just leave it out Christmas eve and act as if you know nothing! Santa must have left it for us...feign ignorance! You will both use it most likely so be really excited about YOUR new quilt, you could even ask him "Did you do this, after telling me not to get you anything?" If he has a sense of humor he will enjoy the playacting, and have a new quilt! Linda

    I would still give it to him for Christmas. If he acts wrongly to it tell him tough, its in the contract you signed for the wedding many years ago in that fine print remember.............

    A gift can cost absoultly nothing but your time and energy for me I would treasure a letter written from my grandchildren a picture they drew is more tangable than any thing in the world to me if money is short I don't understand why he can't create something from just a simple peice of paper and a few words.
    perhaps the ladies of the board should email him with suggestions.
    just a thought, as for your efforts, I would put it out the night before.
    I hope you find a bright spot in your holiday.
    Warm Regards,
    Sandra

    I would give it to him. He may be money boss but he isn't gift boss. There are hundreds of gifts he can give you that cost nothing if he wanted to give you one. Money is no excuse. One year DH found a pretty bush in the woods and replanted it in the yard as a gift for me. I smile every time I look at it.
    Got fabric?

    Could you present the Quilt as a Gift for the Both of you? A family gift.
    My fabric talks to me.

    remember "the gift of the magi"? give it to him. it's meant to be used and you are meant to give it!

    Happy holidays and a good new year.

    My suggestion, Make your bed with it whenever you can without him knowing. He will know you made it and you can both enjoy it! Maybe with a little poem from "Mrs.Santa" Perhaps he is feeling overwhelmed with all the to-do about the holidays, and would just like to take the heat of you and he. My family has done that and agree that it is just the time we spend together that is special to us. Most years, I couldn't even tell you what gifts I had received the year before but could tell you about the time we shared on that day or eve. Just my input! Merry Christmas to all!
