    I have a quilt loaded on my longarm and am pondering how to quilt it. In the interim, I started working on a UFO, finally putting the blocks together. My dear hubby walked by and said I couldn't start another one until I finished the one on the frame. Funny man. I asked if he was the quilt police, and he said yes! Ahem, I set him straight!

    My Hubster tried to tell me that a couple of times. I thought he was pretty funny too! Even funnier when he tells me I can't buy any fabric til I use what I have. :D

    Cute story!!!! Do you really expect him to understand? They just don't get it. In a logical world, yes we should start and finish each project. But in a creative world, we have to be in the mood for each creative expression.

    Thankfully my husband has no comprehension of what is or isn't a project. He just knows it is some fabric. Thank goodness because right now I have about 5 projects ongoing - from a full size quilt down to blocks for a soldier's quilt. This is one area I don't need him policeing (sp). :)

    My husband only plays the quilt police about one project that I have yet to start and everytime he asks me about it I tell him that each time he asks me, the longer the penalty phase becomes before I eventually start it - I am well aware of my own UFO and USP list ("Unstarted Projects"). Then I tell him to go play policeman anywhere else OUTSIDE my sewing room, LOL.

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    LOL thats just too funny. I have been lucky and DH tries to not even look at what is going on and what I have because he knows if he says anything I can list things he has started and not finished..... and he doesn't like to be reminded of those LOL

    Funny, My husband said that to me when I was working on my BOM while my dd's wedding quilt is on the frame. He dosen't realize that hand quilting a king size quilt is not a quick few days.

    He's a retired deputy sheriff, so he has a badge. But, it isn't a quilt police badge.

    My DH ties fishing flys and has a stash of fur, feathers, hooks and threads that makes my fabric piles look really tiny. He would NEVER dare try the quilt police comments!
