    Hubbys can be wonderful. Mine stood over me a couple of weeks ago and "forced" me to place the call to buy a Bernina 1230 that was listed on our area internet (sorta like Craigs List).

    There must definatly be something in the air... I got up this morning to see an ad out of the Vegas paper on where to order a quilting book. ( This just after we'd had a "heart to heart" discussion about watching how much I spend on my "hobby"). You just never know about them ! Saraq

    My hubby encouraged me to buy 30.5 yards of fabric at garage sales today! Then he turned around and bought me an early birthday present.....a beautiful light oak and glass curio cabinet for my rocking horse collection (well part of the collection).

    Yes they can surprise us all right. One day I came home from work and my husband had bought me a Janome 10000 which was the newest Janome at the time. Plus he bought a beautiful cabinet to put it in. He called It the "sew master 10,000. I love, love that machine, and my husband even more!

    Yes they can do things just out of the BLUE. Mine doesn't understand my quilting, sewing or my machines. But he just paid for the timing to be reset on my Pfaff (had 50% off, but it was still $130.00), because he knows I love sewing. I never knew he was watching how happy it makes me. You just have to LOVE them. :lol:

    I was cutting some 21/2 in strips and my husband asked if they were "fat dimes". I told him that I was impressed that he knew the "lingo".

    I went shopping at Joann's this morning. I was in line next to guy at in the "loooong" line by the cutting table. He was waiting patiently while his wife looked for more fabric. He told me all about the camouflage material he was holding and the wonderful blanket and several other items his wife had made for him.

    My husband encouraged me to buy my Bernina 380 this week. He went to the sewing center and quilt shop with me today. He even helped me choose the background fabric for a quilt. Then this evening he told me he wished he could help me with my OBW hexagons. He's a keeper.

    Well, now, you may have something there. But I don't look for my hubby to ever comment about any of my crafting.

    I saw this too. She is remaking the daughter's dress for her father's wedding. I had just gotten my featherweight and was so excited to see this episode and recognize her machine.

    I think it's interesting that my husband is supportive of my sewing but never did care for me learning to weld.

    I wanted to take an auto mechanics course and my husband thought I was crazy. I've always been more mechanical than him but I guess this was too much. He was always happy for me to put together the toys at Christmas, light the hot water heater, and set up our computers and the wireless network, though. :roll:

    While driving back toward Chicago from Mayo Clinic this past weekend, my DH asked if I wanted to stop at a couple od quilt stores that were advertised on I90. I told him no, because my DM was with & I was fairly tired from the trip up & appt. the day before. I was quite surprised & I think that I will take him up on it the next time.
