    I was trying to convince DH to let me get the 10" squares of Tonga Treats Hard Candy to make the 10 minute quilt blocks. For my birthday a few months ago, I had bought the 2 1/2" strips of the Hard Candy colorway. So while trying to convince him, I figured I would show him how pretty the colors are. So I threw open my fabric closet... can't see the strips. I figured they're buried... went digging, dropped a tupperware of safety pins on my foot... knocked over my WIP shelf... and the strips are nowhere to be found. He pointed out that I really didn't need more fabric if I couldn't keep track of what I have... I'm buying the squares anyway :twisted:

    He knows where the stash is. When we were house hunting, there had to be an office and the closet was 100% for fabric. And is about 75% full. I told him he had to accept me and my fabric as a package deal or I wouldn't marry him :D

    That totally cracks me up, sounds like something that could happen at my house.

    Too funny!

    My man lately is in the studio with me. He has figured out if he wants to see me then he better visit there. LOL He is my biggest enabler and supporter though.

    My husband's the same...except he informed our guest yesterday " that he is allowed in the sewing room...only if a broom is attached" No wonder I married him LOL

    My husbands garage is worse than my sewing room..and when he can't find that tool he needs, he buys another..
    :roll:

    no better or worse than me!
    the fabric will turn up..as soon as you go out and buy the replacement..then you will have to just deal with having 2!
    not a bad thing! 8-)

    LOL Go buy it anyway and more strips too. I've been looking for specific fabric and had a whole stack of "set aside to get it out of the way" fabric fall on me and it took me several minutes to dig my way out. Now I make sure the stacks don't go above my head when I'm sitting on the floor. DD and I were trying to sort some of my stash and I came across fabrics I don't remember buying or obtaining in any way. Must have been the quilt fairies..... surely I would forget.....

    I may be able to top that. My SIL just found some fleece I have been looking for for about 3 years now. I knew I had it but I couldn't remember where I put it.

    My hubby said that after we finish our addition for my mother, that he may have to take up quilting so he has a place to go to get away from her ha ha..
    He is my favorite supporter of my hobby

    My hubby is only interested in my sewing projects when it is for him. Otherwise, he steers clear!

    Never, never let him see ALL your stash. Would not be good for him.

    I had a similar experience recently. My DH and kids spent an afternoon helping me clean out the household stuff that didn't belong on my sewing room. I then made an attempt to organize things on my new fabric shelf. Couldn't for the life of me find the Tonga Dimes kit I ordered from Keepsake Quilting. Searched everywhere and was just at a complete loss. Then something made me think to look in one of my project totes. The only thingthat normally travels in there is my hand-pieced grandmother's flower garden WIP. For some silly reason, I had put the Tonga Dimes in w/the WIP. Problem solved - but boy do I know how you feel!! Oh and BTW - go ahead and order the fabric you want - if you can't find it he never will! LOL!!
