    Shh don't tell Hubby...lol

    But I just bought 12 yards of fabric at fabric.com. It was all on sale AND I used a coupon (BRTH11A, I believe) that saved me an extra 15%. I spent $72! Not bad really since I got several yards of flannel along with some cotton. Right, that is good right...say yes! lol

    He really needs to build my cutting table/storage unit now! lol

    And he won't care that I bought fabric but I do have a pile of new fabric from last week's spree. lol

    And I see I like lol a lot. <---new lol.

    I won't tell if you don't tell. I bought a ton of half-price fabric in my LQS' clearance room. All gorgeous batiks, some of which I'd already purchased at full price but loved enough to buy more.

    True. And I can hide the box. Lol. I did just spend 7 hours working on HIS quilt. And I have a sore shoulder to prove it. Lol. I could use his answer if he asks what I bought...I bought stuff.

    If this is something you will use a person doesn't have to feel quilty. I just got a package in the mail from Connecting Threads which I really enjoyed getting, Someimes a person has to do what a person has to do.

    I like to make blankets for my store using flannel and they had the cutest flannels on sale, plus the 15%. So yes it will be used.

    And of course I bought enough for a stash too.

    I was happy with what I got and for less than what I spent at my LQS last week; where I got 3 yards cotton and 1 yard laminated fabric.

    Exactly! This old stuff? Why, honey... you've seen this before, remember? He'll be too embarrassed to tell you he wasn't paying attention, will say "Oh, yeah... I remember" & you're home free. Trust me... I've done it... LOL!

    I went to Joann's last week, spent 85 dollars and went back Monday and spent 65 dollars. And yesterday my husband asks if I needed anything else from Joann's........lol

    He is talking about making a bookcase for my "annex". I have 2 sewing rooms now.

    TNGal, what part of TN are you from. There's a quilt store in Morristown that's closing down - everything in store is 40% off. Went in last week and spent over $200 on 'stuff'. Mainly got wide backings to put in stash - you know, once they're used on a backing, they become 'pieces' and can be used on the front (my justification, anyway! LOL) Don't feel guilty for buying fabric - you need them now for a future quilt. Makes sense to me!

    Nothing to worry about, he probably won't even notice.

    Husbands do this too, every so often I notice a new drill (so far up to 18) suddenly shows up. I never say anything, so when I purchase new quilting material (and of course I don't tell him, but sometimes he will find it), he does not say anything for fear that I might bring up the drill addiction. Kind of an unspoken pact. LOL.

    Vanogay, I am in Middle TN...Morristown is about 4 hours from me. Not too bad but sadly I don't have a full day to take the trip.

    I did tell him about the buckwheat hulls I bought and the pellets I found for a great price, just not the fabric. lol

    lol...I hope not either, ratz29.

    And Doreen, we need to call UPS or FedEX and let them know to deliver all packages with our names on it mid morning while DH is at work. lol Gives up plenty of time to hide the evidence. Luckily our mail runs mid day so that is easy to hide.

    My husband could never even start to keep up with all of my fabric, threads, beads, etc. etc.
    I justify it by telling myself how hard I work. (But, don't tell him)!

    I really don't think my hubby would notice if I bought a truckload of fabric. It could just go on the shelves in the sewing room with all of the other fabric and he wouldn't EVEN see it. He says he is afraid to go in there--something might jump out and get him! LOL!

    Pretty tough to distinguish old fabric from new, I'm thinking????

    This is SO us! He don't care as long as I pay the bills and we have food to eat and enough money for gas. He just told me I could go buy a $50 chair for the table he just built me for my sewing area. He might complain here and there but in the end, if I am happy, he is happy.
