I have to share something my handsome hubby said to a friend the other day. He said that all of my fabric,threads, etc were hoarded. But all of the tools he has in his man cave are bench stock. I couldn't help but laugh. It's just another example of how differently men and women think.

My dh doesn't SAY too much anymore (wouldn't do any good if he did-lol) but I know he THINKS I have enough (and I do) but you always need that perfect piece to contrast with what you already have or another notion or gadget.
Now on the other hand, if it's hunting stuff, he NEEDS that!-lol

I have not had a lot of time to smile or check into cute with what we are going through with the cats. BUT you made me smile this morning. I can just picture Rob saying this with conviction and a twinkle in his eye.. hehe

I must be so blessed.
I dread taking my hubby with me to craft shows because he encourages me to buy anything and everything I look at, (except for dolls and bears).

It's his fault I even started doing machine embroidery (then digitising). I only went into the shop to buy a pair of thread snips for my sewing and while I was checking out the range he was watching the sales lady demonstrating machine embroidery.
Next thing I knew I had FOUR embroidery machines, including the expensive Husqvarna Diamond.

NOW, if I want to buy something expensive, (but also know that I will argue myself out of it), I take him with me because he will hold my arm up my back and make me buy it! :-) LOL!!!
I truly am one lucky lady but I also have to put the reins on his own spending as he is a shopaholic! :-)

We are very blessed. And my room shows it. He often asks if I need anything or do I need to stop at a store. He knows I can't shop like i used to thanks to my chronic vertigo so gives me ample opportunity to add to my very well stocked room.

Wouldn't Dennis be surprised to know a pair of scissors started your downfall into embroidering? Hehehe.

We just have to change the vocabulary on this. In my sewing room I have yards and yards of ...TOOLS.

Funny, even when we do live apart, sometimes far away.. some things are always the same.

That made me laugh. My husband would have told me over and over again, why not use up what I have, before I get more.

This made me laugh!! Sometime my DH shakes his head if my craft room is messy - I think to myself, he should glance at his office!!!

I think our hubbies are related.

Laura, I have been sewing up a storm and when my husband brought his cousin in here for something, I could have died. It LOOKED like a real storm came through! (Just my sewing room not the whole house, thank goodness!) The guy just said, "I didn't know you could sew".-lol

Toogie, I personally think a messy craft room means we have been busy!!!!!
