    OMG! So that's what happened to me! I thought I had been overtaken, but now that I know the truth I feel so much better! I just might have to go to a LQS to test the theory! BTW, I went to a quilt show last Friday with the intention of just viewing beautiful quilts & walked out with over $100 of fabric, patterns & treats for me! LOL, I wasn't going to spend that much before going in!! Well, I had a fun day with friends, quilts & fabric. What could be better?

    I use to believe that too,but my DH always knew about my new purchases -he said there was a glow around me.I thought he was nuts but now I know he wasn't --It was those darn pheromones giving me away

    I may be qualified to address the reason we hide fabric purchases from our DH. He is not directly challenging the need for more fabric, unless of course you used the mortgage money. Of course some demented males use criticism to exert control over their smarter, more creative, and better halves. In the sad case that one is married to such a man, he's going to impotently carry on no matter what you do. You keep doing your thing, you have our sympathy and support.

    The conflict is that men have a tendency to look at raw materials and believe they must be used immediately. Unless of course it is their garage, man cave, or tools. So in order to maintain harmony, these poor souls must be shielded from the stimulus that constant replenishment of our materials would provoke. After all, too much and they might tackle those project they've been putting off and really get in our way.

    Does this explain our habits to those who eschew the benefits of better halfdom? I certainly hope so because I have several quilts underway and that load of fabric to move from the flying saucer to under the bed.

    Thank you for this xsquilter. Now I know there is a cause I feel so much better. Luckily I don't have to hide fabric.

    Very funny. I got a good laugh. Glad I'm not the only one hiding fabric purchases.
    My DH says , "have you even used the last fabric you bought?"
    He has no understanding of how sewers/quilters gather supplies for projects.

    My husband retired and now is the one to bring the mail in - so I have things delivered to my work instead.

    My husband does appreciate it when I can get in my stash and pull together something with what I have on hand. He also is a great shopper - loves to go on shop hops and has a very good eye. I'm the one who has to put the brakes on our spending - even with fabric. So when I find a really good deal and he wouldn't understand why that can be purchased when I didn't get something else - I have them delivered to work.

    One step at a time - maintaining peace in the household.

    And this affects a few select men!

    I keep telling my husband he needs to buy me the house next door, or convert the garage, so I have room to store my fabric and I could have a quilting room. And he thinks I'm joking, kinda.

    Love this. If we can't laugh at ourselves, others will. There could be worse things to be addicted to!
