    I posted the other day that my DH came up and helped out while I was piecing a top. Yesterday I wanted to go to Hancocks and the new JoAnns to take advatage of their 50% off sale for president's day. I asked DH if he wanted to go with me and he said yes. I'm starting a quilt for him so we picked out some beautiful stuff. He kept filling up the cart!!!!! I'd better leave him at home next time.

    The quilt we are making is an underwater scene with corals, grasses, tropical fish, sea turtles and a big shark looming behind the grasses and a scuba diver going for a big shark tooth on the sandy bottom. DH is a diver and collects sharks teeth.

    He was up until late drawing the shark and corals for me to use as patterns.

    I love that man, the time we're spending together on this project is so special.

    This is great. DH helps me plan too. We have two computers in the office/sewing room and he gets on one of them and spends time in there when I am sewing.

    I think it's really great for a husband to be interested like that. My now departed husband was like that also and I miss him very much for the great things he did for me and with me.

    I would say continue to take him! Let him keep filling up your cart. think of all the stash you will have once his quilt is finished. And how could he complain since he picked them out. (don't look a gift horse in the mouth.) ;)

    That's great - mine likes to "help" by looking at sewing machines and tools/notions on the internet and printing them out and saying "would this help?"

    Guess I shouldn't complain. :-D

    Where'd you buy that can of worms? I want to get one!

    Great to hear you are both enjoying the project.
