    Somebody needs to pinch me....my DH just called to let me know he was headed home from the doctor. He was in the parking lot at JoAnn's and wondered what I wanted! WHAT? We live and hour from there so it's a treat when I get to go and he knows it! I picked out a 12 1/2 " square up ruler...he said "what else" so I chose a 6 1/2" square up ruler...he said "what else"? After I picked my teeth up off the floor I sent him to the batting and he picked out a queen size per my instructions! WOW, maybe I'm still asleep or he has been blinded by all the snow! How lucky am I ? He didn't even have coupons!

    Woo hoo!

    Are you the winner of the big Lottery Jackpot?

    Either way, you won! How lovely of your husband.

    My DH won't even go into Joann's with me when we're out together ... even when I REALLY DO just need a few items and don't have to wait to get fabric cut. He says he feels like a "crazed woman" in there. lol. He would never, ever go in alone. You've got a keeper who respects your obsession.

    To get me to go for a motorcycle ride with him my hubby always checks to see if there is a quilt shop on the route. (These are 1/2 day or more rides) He is safe as there is only so much room on his bike for me and fabric. But when I do go I always come home with something!!

    Okay...we used to ride too and I had a backpack! You won't believe what will fit in those things. It was great when he bought the super duper bike that had saddle bags! I am one creative packer!

    Make sure he knows that we all think he is a super great hubby for doing this for you. AND make sure you tell us why...when you find out of course. If that's not prodding.

    I would be suspicious if it was my husband. I would think he has a mistress, or wanted new golf clubs :roll: :lol:

    Wow, that's wonderful when they do something like that! And no coupons...that's even nicer of him.

    that is amazing - let him know how much you appreciate what he did (and he'll do it more) :-) ... my boyfriend loves to rearrange my blocks and help me pin and sometimes he'll cut for me.
