I just think I enjoy the secrecy or fun of it all. He he he
    No not alone. Mine is very tight too.

    He tells me to buy To shut me up when he shops....Gotta love it


    Come to think of it, My DH is probably using some of YOUR hide and sneak methods!!!!!!
    If you ever get tired of him maybe I could borrow him for a couple of days? I will need a little notice though so I can send mine fishing....


    Mine would probably go on the fishing trip, wanna go shopping?????LOL

    I used to wait and bring it in the house after he left for work in the morning. Then he retired. I haven't bought much since, and bring it in the house in the fabric grocery totes. Or in my lunch bag. LOL

    I don't hide, but if he says "Is that new?" My answer is "No, I bought it a while back!" This works so far! :)

    Every time my late DH mentioned fabric. which I'll admit was rare, I would take him shopping at our most expensive department store. If he had the vague idea that my fabric was for garments, I loved him enough to never correct him in his beliefs.

    I did make things now and then to encourage him in that idea, and still have a very nice warm house coat I made for DH that is going to my son one of these days.

    Oooooh, WELL that is SWEET.
    Husband has his dream shop now.. so he pretty much is fine with what I do. Too funny, before he had such an awesome space, he would stand in my quilt room doorway and just stare.

    LMAO... too funny. I have used that line often..."No, I bought it last year." He works out of state so he isn't here half the year. LOL

    No hide and sneak at my house either. I'm thinking that would drive me batty if I felt the pressure to do that. I'm truly already batty enough :-)

    It would be pointless to hide it since he is the first person I show when I get home because I am so excited.
    not that he cares to see it but i still love to show it off. :-D

    I don't hide it. DH just shakes his head whenever I get fabric. Then he buys something for his computers.

    LOL....this is too funny. I don't have this problem though because my husband is very supportive, but does laugh and shake his head. I'll tell him that I need to stop by Hancocks and he will say, "You look like a Hancocks." LOL.

    Honestly I don't see why it would interest my DH how much fabric I buy. He sees the online quilt shops packages and boxes delivered all the time and never asks about them. I pay my shopping with my credit card, he never sees it but I know he expects all totals to be paid in full every month so as long as I do that he's happy and non concerned.

    My husband(s) never complained because they knew they were going to get a shirt or two out of some of the fabric. They have always been proud of my sewing talent as well as other crafts talent. I was blessed in THAT part of our marriages. In fact after the divorce, they continued to wear the shirts until they wore out....lol Never had to hide fabric.

    I just don't understand why you have to hide fabric? I think that this is my hobby/passion and why try to be sneaky about it?

    I don't hide fabric when I get it either. My husband doesn't mind if I buy fabric in fact he will "shop" for fabric with me when we can.

    I don't hide it! I don't hide anything from my dh, he knows how much I spend. I finally put myself on a budget, then he can't say anything and it helps me stay in control!! Of course, I have only been on the budget two weeks, heehhee!
