    I think I am in shock. Talking to my hubby about how the price of cotton is going up a lot. He told me, well if you know it is going to cost more you should stock up. As long as you plan to make more quilts might as well buy before prices go up. I think a trip to the LQS is on the schedule.

    I want your hubby! hahah. I told mine I spend 40 bucks at Joann's on clearanced items (cheaper than even 50% off) on things I needed anyway and boy is he having fun giving me a hard time! I think he's working towards some new tools or something ;)

    What a sweetie. Take him up on it, but stay within reason. And make him his own quilt! :)

    I'd be out the door. Would he have said that if he really knew all the stash that you have hidden away?.......... :)

    I am lucky. We actually were talking about what he is stocking up on since we can currently afford it. His view was, it will all get used and will only get more expensive and we might not be able to afford at some point. Which is when I mentioned how quilt fabric is going up. He said if I am sure I will keep makeing quilts I should buy now. I am sure he didn't mean to go nuts, but I will definitely add to my stash.

    Thank goodness my fabric stash is in cupboards with doors on them. If my husband could see my stash he would freak. I know I have way to much.

    Yay!! Have fun shopping!!! My hubby is an enabler. He loves that I have a hobby I love so much.. I have a nice stash but he always encourages me to get more fabric if I like what I see. No complains here. Now if I can only get him to put his dirty clothes in the laundry hamper instead of the floor.

    Yep, I was kind of cushioning my cc bill this month, by telling him the prices of cotton are going up. His remark was the same..get what you need. Need? Want? I'll stick to my usual plan.
