Smile My DH really surprised me, not by buying a machine or anything like that...read on

I am making a queen size log cabin quilt for my sister. I finished the 81 blocks needed. Ready to press the seams. This time I decided to press them open. I sew them open, so this helps a great deal. The other day I had the iron out and was pressing the seams on some blocks. I decided to take a shower. I came back.....DH was actually sitting there, pressing the seams. What a God send, I am now half way through the 81 blocks.
He also took the pressed ones, put them on the table 9 blocks each, turning each group so they are easily identifiable. He then placed a sheet of plain paper and some books to help keeping them flat till I can join them.

Wouldn't happen around here. My DH loves to offer his opinions on how things should look or be done but other than that I don't have that kind of help. Good for your DH!

Oh wow, that is amazing. I not sure my husband would know how to turn the iron on. He could manufacture a street sign in his sleep, but I really don't think he could press a seam.
And that is the sweetest thing for him to do. Maybe it is time for him to learn to sew the peices together.
