You are so right! I went to a used bookstore yesterday and found some old quilting books and just had to buy them! I have so many books that I am working on putting them in order so I know what I have (yes I have duplicates, so will need to sell them)

My DH TAKES ME TO THE fabric store!
Goes with me to look at machines - loads them in the car after I get them...
Made his ownself a lapquilt!

I guess after 45 years (in Dec) we can do that!

I am lol-ing at this question. I am happy to say that I have not had to sneak any quilting stuff in the house.

However, there are many other items in this house that came in while he was in the shower, out doing chores, at a car show, etc

Maybe we should be inquiring as to creativity to getting it in?? :)

Happy Quilting

Nothing. I guess we just have a very OPEN relationship. I don't hide anything from him because I wouldn't want him hiding stuff from me. He can look at the check book and see where money was spent, so why hide/lie about it?

Not trying to be a "debby downer" but...
I know its a different situation but the idea is the same... My cousin was dying of cancer, she knew she was no one else not even her husband and children did though. Anyways she spend all three kids college education, she took a loan against his 67 Mustang Shelby GT500, and she also took a second morgage out on thier house. Every time of this money was spent in a 6 month period at the casino. NO ONE knew she was EVER at the boat spending ANY money. Her kids now have no money for college, the car was repoed, and they almost lost the house. Thank god he makes REALLLLLLLY good money or everything would have been GONE!

The secret is the same, it just all depends on how far you would take it.

I live alone, but have had to "hide" stuff in the closet when I have visitors from out of town who don't sew and think I have way too much. I found it easier to just have it out of sight then to try to explain every time they come to visit why I have over 200 yards of fabric, 3 sewing machines etc.

Oh he absolutely knows!!! 17 bins full with the possibilty of adding a couple more after this current acquisition!! :shock: :lol: Seriously!! But dh went with me to get my 6600 (wanted his opinion on the mechanical aspect) and if I have to run to Jo's or a LQS he goes with me. Actually, I think he loves to give opinions on the color choices!! :lol: He loves that I quilt. One concern about the machine choice was are you still going to do handwork? :-D Old-fashioned Italian boy here!!

I don't sneak anything in quilting or otherwise. My husband adds things to my stash, then makes cabinets and shelves to display my stash.
