    I had to cover my mouth to muffle the laugh about the reverse stitching... everyone is still asleep right near me in the living room.

    How wonderful for you... about the machine AND the husband!

    I just love how you girls understand how this would make you feel. Most people would just say,"Oh that's nice", while you are jumping up and down with glee inside like a five year old. Kinda spoiling the whole thing, ya know? BIG, big hugs to you all you sweet ladies.

    Now I have to think of something that would just tickle him beyond belief like he has done for me. Oh Oh I know! I think I will clean up the garage! It isn't real bad, but, I need to purge many boxes of stored memories from there and make a donation to salvation army. He will not believe that act. what do you girls think? enough? :?:

    I am thrilled for you! My husband does have a brother! LOL That is something myhusband would do.

    I bought some fabric to make a friend of mine a quilt. I am a flowery kinda girl, she is not. So I bought a bunch of batiks. I had asked my husband first if it was o.k. We are really strapped for a while. He said to be reasonable but gave me the go ahead. I spent $107.00. OMGoodness! I told him what I had spent and he looked at me rather sad and said the fabric I had seen at a local shop on sale and drooled over we could not afford now. He said he had wanted to buy it for me for Valentines day. Oh I was sad but knew I needed to get the fabric for my friend. Well on Valentines day he gave me a package and there it was,the very fabric I LOVED. I didn't even think he really paid attention to me when I showed it to him! Our guys are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Enjoy your man!
    Have a great day,
    Sunshine

    Have a wonderful day!

    :D You have the perfect picture, RedGarnet. We are all jumping up and down for you. You know how we all LOVE fabrics and all the doo dads that go with, and to have a hubby that might not quite get it, but gets the part where it's special to us...WOW...like my hubby teasing me that my sewing room is "my cave"..."honey...you in the cave?" lol...then building me shelves for Christmas and letting me get a new machine. These are the things that make up for all those 'drive me crazy' guy things they sometimes do. We wouldn't want them to be just like us anyway...if they started buying fabric, too, where would we sit?
    I think, if cleaning the garage would please and surprise him, that would be perfect. I think he would get the part that you wanted to do something that meant something to him, just like he did for you.
    How sweet, like the honeymoon days of, "no, honey, what would you like to do...where do you want to eat,...what movie do you want to see? what makes your little heart go pitter pat?" :D :D :D

    Thanks so much ladies! Your the best ..... Really!

    I am glad to hear other gals on the board have had thier hubby's surprise them lately. My hubby would never go and have fabric cut for me. He would just give me a certificate or something. That is one special guy you have there alaskasunshine.

    Tee hee hee the discription of the honeymoon talking is so funny, Quiltncrazy.

    My husband did nearly the same for me when my little Bernina 810 "passed away" last year after 29 years. Inconsolable and unable to live without a sewing machine, he told me to go get a replacement and I chose the Bernina Aurora 430. Then he very quietly paid the off the credit card bill for Mother's Day. Love him to pieces!

    I agree on the reverse sewing. Makes me think of the Sit and Sew where we created a new wish list for the next greatest sewing machine. One woman wanted a clock on hers. I want one that 'un'sews. Just think of the hours that would save!

    He is a treasure. No chance of my man doing anything like that. He rings my daughters to find out what he can get me for birthdays. I would be happy with a quilt shop voucher or magazine subscription. In my dreams.

    I think it was his brush with death almost a year ago to the day that has made the difference.
    What a dear. Believe me that brush would change anyone. I've been through it and so has my DH. Priorities DO change. GB both of you.

    Oh goodness ... I just caught up with this thread ... Thanks for having a good laugh with me girls. Hubby knows nothing about sewing. So he really stays away from talking about it now that I laughed at him over the reverse unsew statement. I wish it would work like that too, though.


    hulahoop what a great guy!

    JoanneS I want a clock too! That is a great idea.

    And bev, kd124, Barb M, Key4unc, Gail G, skeat,okie, debbie and feathers Thanks for your cute and funny remarks Love them.

    quilter 1234 ... Nope not for the world! LoL!

    I have to confess girls, my hubby would never had thought to buy the certificates or sewing things for me until I started hinting and talking to him about it. They just don't realize how much these things mean to us. Well ... hubby found out when I got tears in my eyes over the walking foot. Now he will be all over that. He loves to please me.

    I love all the comments girls thanks so much! And Nantucketsue ... tell your guy what you want!

    Your hubby and mine would get along well....I can almost hear mine asking the same question about reverse...! I owouldn't part with him, though...not when he takes me to work and comes to get me in sub-zero winter weather, which is a 40-mile round trip! I have plans for a nice flannel quilt for him for all he's done for me...He'll be surprised!
