I am sure he doesn't know about everything, because he is not watching, but he is one to go out and buy a machine because I mentioned I liked it, or get me fabrics because he drove by the LQS. Nothing hidden here.

You're not alone, I sneak it in all the time. I think he would croak if he ever saw how much stash I have!

I don't sneak anything in. I don't hide how much fabric I have but he doesn't look in my stash closet and probably has no idea. Hell would freeze over before he told me what to buy (or not buy). And I don't monitor his purchases.

I think it makes a difference that we have pretty equal salaries and we keep our finances separate. I pay college educations; he pays mortgage, insurance and utilities. We each pay our own credit card bills and share other major expenses. No fighting about money at our house. It works for us.

He set up my sewing room and helps me with my projects. So yes, he knows what I have. Unfortunately he can be an enabler too.

I don't have to sneek anything in. Hubby says we both work hard and should be able to get what makes us happy. Last weekend I was showing him the Sew Mate table and asked if he could make me something like that. He said, he could but it wouldn't be as nice, just order it. Last night over dinner, he asked if I had ordered it yet. I told him, not yet and he asked what I was waiting for. He's a keeper

I agree with the "open relationship" people - why would you want to be in a marriage where one person lies to the other?

We have so many scraps,DH does not want to get rid of any!!

Never sneak anything in here. DH has his own hobby of woodworking so he knows that it costs money. He has so much "wood stash" that we had to put up another storage building. I don't mind cause when I want something made I pick out the wood. Everything works out for us.

My DH has been known to take me to LQS and ask me is this all you want? And pay for it too! He knows I have a ROOM full of fabric and he brings the boxes in from the mail when I order something online or from another member on this fabulous board. He does his thing(horse & dog track and lottery tickets) with "his" money and I do mine. I don't have to hide a thing in this marriage(it's my third and his second) and I won't live like that again. I've got a KEEPER after 27yrs.!!!

I have never snuck anything into the house. He encourages me to buy what I want as life is to short to wish I had done this or wish I had done that. He is a lot more well behaved though. He doesn't buy to many things that are not a neccessity. Just his nature... After 49 and 1/2 years of being together He better not quit spoiling me. LOL
