    My DH is fantastic about my quilting and my swedish weaving. I have large tubs of yarn. He even understood when I bought fabric before I started quilting just because I love fabric. I told him I was a collector because I didn't know what I was going to do with it. He says he knows I don't have much of a stash compared to some other quilters and then told me he has been thinking about putting shelves in my sewing room so I can display my fabrics so I can see it without hunting through the plastic sets of drawers I use now. He even had an idea for folding it so it would look nice on the shelves and not get wrinkled. At the first of the month, he was going over our monthly budget and told me he thought we can afford for me to double my fabric money each month. I have told him for 47 years that I will love him forever and into infinity and this is only one of the reasons why. He always has my wants at the top of his list of things to take care of as I have his at the top of mine. He even listens patiently while I share with him the wonderful and funny things I read here. He is definitley a keeper.

    You should duplicate him - And send him to new quilters who are single.

    You two sound like you have a wonderful marriage. If only more couples felt that way about each other there would be a lot less divorce in this country.

    Would you rent him out for training other husbands? I would be willing to trade fabric for training. LOL

    Thank you for all of the wonderful responses. You have all made me smile. I am truly blessed. I have known it since the day I met my DH. Ditter, I'm so glad you have one, too.

    I have one just like you. I wouldn't trade him for a million bucks.
    When I go shopping he tells me to take my time and buy whatever I want, but I don't buy just for the sake of buying.

    WOW! Does he have a brother (only kidding.. I'm married) and my husband has let me buy way too much fabric...but when it comes to putting up shelving... that's not happening. He's the most "unhandy man" EVER!!

    Wow what a wonderful husband you have. It is a pleasure to read about a couple that are so in tune to each other. My DH is also a wonderful guy. He will take me to hunt for fabric etc. However he usually waits outside in the car or does other errands.

    I Swedish Weave also. Have made hundreds of stuff. I have about 3 big tote bags and 4 or 5 plastic crates of yarn. DH knew I like yarn so he bought me 2 skeins to put in my Christmas Stocking. Then he realized how much I already had! LOL
