    A few years ago, my DH surprised me with a quilted clock for our anniversary. He had made it himself. To do so, he adjusted the Dresden Plate pattern from 16 to 12 increments, bought the fabric; realized the fabric was off and bought a different line and used my sewing room and supplies.

    Someone had asked for me to post a picture. Here is the surprise and I love it (and him):

    Thank you for showing the picture.
    I think a lot of hubbys are really supportive, they just don't always know how to get involved and show it.
