    Ha! Audrey is my sister and I can guarantee that when he told her she had to finish one project before she started another, there was a big smile on his face! All he has to do is look in her quilt studio and he would know there were several projects going on. :)

    what kind of trouble did he get in for impersonating the police..
    i guess you told him any self respecting quilter is likely to have several projects going at one time.

    Did you remind him that women are capable of multi-tasking?

    I was making a dedication quilt for the church. My DH walks in and says "What are you making?" I said, A baby quilt. You should have seen the look on his face! For a few seconds he was very scared! lol

    Aren't husbands just so cute?? My husband washes and dries my fabrics. That way I tell him he is part of each quilting project. He has even helped me with "designs". He complains, but in a joking way. I think I will keep him.

    My Hubby will come into my sewing room and ask " what are you building now?" Then he will call all my fabric RAGS. If I go shopping and bring home a bag he said " how many rags did you buy today?" NO RESPECT!!!!!! LOL A friend almost bought him a bag of rags from Home Depot and put on the tag Now you have your own rags. LOLOLOL

    My Hubby's hobby is woodcrafts. He always has a couple of projects going and several on the drawing board. Thinks I am completely normal to have one project on the machine, one by my easy chair and 3 in "to start next".

    My hubby told me once that if I started one more project that he was leaving. I asked him where he was going to live.

    My DH makes segmented wood bowls from a variety of woods. He 'has' to have more than one bowl going at a time because of the waiting for the glue to dry. 'Sides, he looks out for quilt shops in towns when we are traveling, goes shopping for fabrics with me and has his favorite quilt shops, depending on what they carry.

    The lady who worried her husband by saying she was making a baby quilt~~~absolutely priceless! :-D
