I love reading about all the wonderful husbands that help build stuff, fix stuff and make quilting easier for all of us. My hubby stayed up late fixing the timing on my older Singer Stylist. It's my favorite machine and I was worried about sending her away for fixing. He got on line and did some research and now she sews better than before! I'm so impressed by how supportive and helpful he is!

My sweet honey bunny has built me so many things for my sewing room I have lost count!! He also really understands the need for good tools (he is a carpenter)if he goes to the quilt shops with me and sees a new tool demo he will want me to buy it. I think I need him to go to one of the big quilt shows with me. Hee Hee! :-)Who knows what I would come home with.

Same here! Let's hear it for them!!! I've switched sewing rooms 3 times and my hubby had to remove pegboard and reinstall it, never complained even once! He also installed a screen door so I can keep it open w/o the cats running in and out.
What a nice post :)

Since we are on the subject of husbands....

What do you ladies do (or gentleman do) when your spouse wants your attention and has nothing to do with themself? Mine does not have a hobby at all and wants my attention and that keeps me from quilting when I want to. I try to plan days just for us to do things together but he still wants my attention constantly.

Vanessa, he needs a hobby!!! It's a shame he can't just do something independently while you do. We all need our own space sometimes. That's what I would tell him, really.
I can't give anyone my undivided attention all the time. Did that when my kids were little, now done!

My husband is a saint. The quilting he appreciates and puts up with , but he also married into my dog rescue.

Last night, I came home with 6 more puppymill dogs. There is mud everywhere, and frightened dogs. He helped me bathe them, and held each one for a little while.

I know that he'll come home from lunch today and do the mid day mopping, because I have to work in an office today instead of at home.

It's raining here, and the new scared dogs keep going outside, where there are no people (just lots of wet mud) and with 15 dogs in the house temporarily (until some of the new ones go to their foster homes) it's a giant mess.

My DH is very supportive and always praises my work. He very rarely says anything about what I spend, or how much I quilt. Anytime I need something done in my sewing room he is always willing to help me, but I could tell that he was missing me in the evenings. So now, I make sure that I have hand work to do so I can sit and watch something with him. It's really such a small thing to keep him happy.

Susan,

You are so right. I wish I could be more assertive when it comes to this. I try to quilt when he is at work too. He only works part-time now and I work full-time. I do love it when I can get some me time but that doesn't happen to often. I will have to work harder on being assertive.

Vanessa

Saturday I went to Joann's for their sale. Hubby was with me. I forgot my coupons in the car so he went out and got them for me while I was at the cutting table. Then after I checked out he took the bag to the car for me while I did another errand in the mall!

He is always very supportive of my quilting!
