    What a great Husband I have

    I am making a scrappy quilt and figured out that I dont have quite enough scraps to do what I want to do. So last week I mentioned to hubby that next time were were near the fabric store, I needed to pick up a few fat quarters.

    Of course he had no clue what a fat quarter was, so I explained to him. He also asked questions about what would be a good price for a fat quarter etc.

    Seems that he did a bit of shopping on ebay without my knowledge. Today I can expect a delivery of a mixed lot of 100 fat quarters, and tomorrow another delivery of a lot of 150 fat quarters.

    Guess I will have more than enough fabric to finish my scrappy quilt!

    What fun!!! You are so lucky.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Good for you. My Husband doesn't use computer much, which is lucky for me. I get to pick out my own fabrics. I never buy fat quarters, mostly 4-6 yards of fabrics.

    What a neat guy I am sure there are not very many like that around. I know I don't have one like that he is very
    verbally abusive.

    All my husband does is ask where I got the money to buy fabric.
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    you sure do have a keeper. My BF will go through the fabric store with me, but he is no help at picking out anything and would never attempt it on his own. I'm kinda glad though....I always get to pick out what I like.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Just the idea that he cared enough to get the info of what you needed and then bought himself on ebay. Very sweet thing for him to do. I believe you need to keep him!
