    My DH is THE BEST!

    He stopped at Joann's with me yesterday but I didn't buy anything. I told him I needed to look at a couple of patterns and see what I needed after pulling from my stash before I knew what I wanted to buy. We went back today - the first Joann's closest to our house didn't have the fabric I wanted but he insisted I get a ROLL of Warm & Natural since it was on sale and I had the additional 25%... Then he drove 30 miles to the next Joann's. I was so tickled when all of a sudden - after I found the two fabrics I needed - to see that HE had put ten bolts of fabric in my cart that he liked!!! Then, we drove to a third Joann's about ten miles further....where he proceeded to choose a couple more bolts for me! He also insisted I get a drop side table! We got home and he just finished putting my table together. Unfortunately, we have decided the table goes back as it is really poorly made for the price. But this day has been so great that I just don't care! He is so wonderful!

    You think someone took him and replaced him with a look alike??
    Enjoy your day,
    Jan

    Hip Hip Hooray for Hubby!!!! Mine sits in the car when we stop at JoAnns and watches the clock while I run in "for just a minute" However he is not compaining when I told him that part of our anniversary vacation in Vegas will consist of a fabric shop hop. He said "As long as I don't have to go "

    What a blessing to have dhs like this. I needed my Janome serviced and he took it in and decided I needed the new Horizon 12000- so he got it for me. Needless to say I'm enjoying all the bells and whistles it has and boy does it have a lot!

    Aww...what a guy! My DH stays far, far away from Joann's unless I need him to pick up something at the store near his work. And even then, I have to be sure that the clerk has it ready for him to grab and run. LOL. )

    Jan, my DH is just like that and that is why I don't take him for fabric..... Today at church there was a gal with a pretty skirt on. It looked like it had 4 different period fabrics in blues. One of the sections looked just like 30's, another 70's and another patriotic.... I told DH they would make a wonderful quilt LOL. He said, 'You know I am starting to see the quilts in things now too!'

    You have a wonderful husband. You what they need to do? The LQS need to add a tool room or something for guys. I go to a shop far away in a little town and they have an espresso counter and antiques. Lots of antique tools and watches and things that keep my husband busy for as long as I am.

    He is surely a keeper. My dh is an enabler, too. He always is on the lookout for fabric sales & such. We are a lucky bunch.

    Lucky you!! But I have to say, my DH helped me finish & install my design wall just yesterday. He encouraged me to buy my cabinet, and another featherweight with card table. He's a keeper. To repay his kindness, I try very hard not to drag him into JoAnn's!

    Too nice,my husband will come down to see me cursing at my best pal ~seam ripper~ and then I get a pat on the head and a kiss ,then he says dont worry youll get it .But shopping at any store for him is a no no and he watches the clock so I know that I need to know what I have to have.But as we all know when we walk in a fabric store our minds race lol.

    "You think someone took him and replaced him with a look alike??"

    If they did, shhhhhhhhh! Maybe you should check the bank statement and cards to see what HE bought.

    My DH will take me to JoAnn's and the LQS, but stays in the car playing games on his phone. There's no time restraints on my stay at the store. I just try to not make him wait too long so I can be sure he'll take me again. He has no interest in quilts except to sleep under one while he takes his nap. :-)

    You're a very lucky lady!!

    My DH is the same and encourages me beyond belief. Yesterday we went to get fabric for a project and he helped with color choices and then was shocked when we were finished quickly. I think he wanted to stay and look at fabric!
