    Praise to my hubby

    I just need to let you know, first I failed ruler. I was on a shop hop and bought my first patches to make a quilt. Well, started to cut out the pieces, messed up. Hubby stepped in and cut the patches for me. He now cuts all my patches and does a great job. Now he has even taken up doing some sewing. Like the pants that I had put in a bag and "would get to them later" to hem them. Well, he sewed them up himself. I think eventually I'll get him to sew some blocks together. I know there are alot of hubbies out there like mine. Aren't they great.

    Careful- soon he'll be doing the whole top. Or maybe that's the plan?

    My hubby has NO artistic or craft talents! But he admires my quilts and has helped to build my quilting shed. Can't help the talent thing, but he's sure a sweetheart!

    My DH doesn't sew at all, and laughs at my obsession with sewing and vintage machines, but he indulges, so he's a keeper anyway.

    Mine's a keeper too! No sewing but, he does take care of stuff so I can sew. Gotta love a man like that.

    My hubby doesn't participate in my hobby, but he does contribute to it! He surprised me with a vintage Bernina Record 830 for valentines' day a few years ago, and quite often will bid on things he knows I'm watching on eBay. He spoils me!

    Isn't it nice to have your mate interested and doing/helping in your hobbies. Sounds like he is a keeper.

    I also have a great hubby. He participates by helping my lay out my quilt. When I get the blocks made and it's time for the layout he has a really good eye for that. He also praises me for every project made. He has thanked me numerous times for making him a quilt. He touches it, pats it and says "my woman made this for me". My hubby is definitely a keeper. We've been married 34 years and I hope for many, many more.

    My DH is a lot of help also. He is great at making things for me like a design board, large ironing board and made me a great sewing room. He helps with design and math when I have trouble with it. He is good with machines and is better at running the LA machine than I am. We have been married 48 years so I'll keep him.

    That's nice! I know I wouldn't be praising my DH if he was in my sewing room all day. We are complete opposites but the same in being opposite. LOL.
    Got fabric?

    I must say I don't want my DH anywhere near my quilting! LOL. He's a perfectionist and if he tried he'd spot a less than perfect seam allowance a mile away ... and I got a lot of them ... and that's okay with me!!!

    Your hubby is a keeper. I'm dealing with a bad case of carpal tunnel and have thought of asking my hubby to cut out the next project. Rotary cutting kills me. He's a highly skilled carpenter who built the house we live in. I'm thinking he's more than qualified to cut out a project. In fact, it would probably better and more accurate than I can do.

    Maybe we should have some kind of Helpful DH contest with some awards! Mine does all my cutting, collaborates on layouts, helps load client quilts on long arm and gives input on quilt design selection AND watches craigslist & papers for vintage machines.

    I have taught my husband to sew a button on his shirt and to also iron them. I am happy with that. I don't think I would be able to teach him anything else. He is my Computer Geek & that makes him & me happy.

    I've pointed out to my husband that his eye for precision and his enjoyment of "cool tools" he would enjoy cutting my fabric. I think I have to wait till he retires. Good for you....cutting is my least favoriite thing of quitlign.

    Mine is all thumbs for cutting but he can look at my design wall and help me figure out what I am doing wrong. That for me is very valuable.

    Sounds familier...My hubby has a keen eye for colour combinations and comes with me to help pick out fabric.
    He supports and encourages me when I'm trying new things in my quilting experience.

    Mine has no attention to details, keeping him away from my sewing room works for me. He is much better at keeping the TV company while I do quilty things.
