    My husband has been checking yard sales for fabric lately...He hit the jackpot today.......41 yards of fabric....$6.00.....Only one piece of red that was a blend the rest, all cottons....lots of Christmas and juvenile prints.There was also 18 yards of 58' wide green plaid.
    What a haul!!! Needless to say I am thrilled!! I already let him know how pleased I am!!! :P

    This is a pay it forward coming back to you.
    You have paid it forward many times and today it came back to you. I am so glad. Does this mean he gets to leave his socks on the floor now? Congratulations. Great catch! (Hubby). !!!!!!

    Ditter, Your DH rewarded you for getting busy on those quilts and for not having to hang a certain picture. Congrats to hubby for knowing what to look for!

    I had to educate him some...last weekend he brought home 20+ yards of black and white gingham in some undetermined fabric. I remember when they had it at Walmart for $1.00 a yard....I'll sew some of it up and start washing it to see what happens........He has a better idea what NOT to get.....I am happy he is helping me that way....Of coarse I've spent the day washing and drying and folding......... ;-) I knew he was a keeper long before this!!:D Now, if I could just get him to put things away....

    Great DH, you need to send him to the thrift stores and to yard/garage sales to hunt down bargains for you. Good for both of you.

    :D :D You've definitely got a keeper for a hubby! I wouldn't sweat the small stuff after a shopping trip like this! My DH wouldn't know the first thing about what kind of fabric to buy(even if I tried to show him), but he will pay for it, so I guess I have my own keeper too!!
