    Mine was supportive too - it's wonderful when your husband/companion/significant other enjoys and works with you no matter how it's done. I miss it so dear lady enjoy every minute of it because it is precious time for sure.

    Enjoy the togetherness you never know when it will end. My husband helped me pick out fabric today also.
    My first husband died after only 18 months and had a 6 month old daaughter that kept me going. Now I have a wonderfull husband who never says a word about my hobby . Please post a pic when you have that quilt finished. I have a son, his wife, a daughter and her daughter that is into scuba diving.

    Can't wait to see your finished project. My husband does almost everything with me except sewing related. Actually, I love it that way. He hunts, I sew, we're happy sharing our hobby stories at the end of the day.

    Hard to take my husband shopping too. He will go to the cutting table while I look. I say get 1 yd and he gets 2, I say 3yrd and he gets 5. Got to love him. He just made me a new shelf thing to put stuff in, I want the top for cutting. so I have to sort the stuff and see how it works. He is not a builder, so it us ruff, but He made it for me. got to love him. Now, hunting season is over, I got to find him another hobby. LOL Enjoy him.

    Yes, well.....I'm also the budget keeper in the family, sort of a conflict of interest sometimes.

    Sounds like a keeper to me--- My DH is my best critic, if I have something that I can't figure out what to do or what to change, he will come look at the design wall and suggest something. 9 times out of 10 he is right. There are times when I over rule his suggestion, but usually I have to admit he is right.

    Hoping someday mine will come round. I love him and help him with his projects but he just can't "seam" to appreciate mine :-(

    My husband likes to look at fabric and help me too. Not on the
    quilt but on picking out the fabric and colors.

    That's too cool, I'm glad my DH hasn't shown any signs of wanting to quilt yet. My DS has, he is almost finished with his first quilt. The time we share is so cool.

    You are so lucky. Everytime I start a new project my DH says "well, what are we going to do with that one?" Sort of bursts my bubble.
