No, he doesn't understand my passion for the fabric; but he is willing to do whatever makes me happy and if that doesn't show love I don't know what does. I love that man! We've been together for 49 years, married for 47 and he is my best friend on top of being the bestest husband ever!!

    This is such a sweet story. Sometimes we don't appreciate the special people in our lives when they don't do fantastic gifts. Yours is special indeed, he loves you enough to support your passions. Even the smaller gifts, when done with love, mean more than the diamonds,etc.

    Merry Christmas and have fun organizing your fabrics. Happiest of New Year to you and your special hubby

    It sounds as if you have not only bonded with fabric over the years but more importantly, bonded with one generous gentleman who appreciates you and wants to make your life easier. Congratulations on both points.

    That is what makes our DH so special...when they know those things that matter most and do them for us. Good for you and it is wonderful that you have one that still takes care of the most important person in his life.

    Aren't they wonderful!! So talented with their hands. My Santa made me a solid oak design wall that raises and lowers like a breeze. Can't wait to start that next quilt.

    What a wonderful gift and I think he knows you well. I am anxious to hear about all your wonderful finds when you get it all organized and sorted on the shelves. What a great hubby(Santa)you have.

    My DH gave and set up 2 shelves stacking for my fabric. Now I can take the fabric and get it organized. Must have been a shelf year. After 46 years And making me happy in my hobby all these years, I wouldn't change him for the world.

    Aren't those Santa's the best? I have one like that, always doing the most thoughtful things for my sewing room. I love that guy. This year I put up a big sign that says "Dear Santa - - - - Define Good" I think he caught on
