To know him is to love him. Tom loves surprises, he loves a squeegee hunt and he loves over the top. One time, about 8 years ago, he ripped a page out of the phone book to find an obscure album for a gift. Together we hit every single music store, new and used, within a 50 mile radius. I'm talking Rasputin's, Amoeba, Streelight Records, The Warehouse, Sam Goody, etc... I looked at the long list of stores and I asked him why don't we call and find out who has it. With a twinkle in his eye he replied, "that's no fun."
So, let the fun begin!

CARMEN BY ANNA GRIFFIN
My very favorite print. So soft and lovely.
We both love Sherbet Pips. He doesn't know it yet, but I bought yardage of the gray puppies for lounge pants for him. I think it just moved to the top of the sewing list. ; )
LITTLE APPLES BY ANEELA HOEY
One for me and one for???? Stay tuned. : )
GRATUITOUS PUPPY SHOT
Sorry, couldn't resist that last one.
I read about his entertaining adventure yesterday, I think. Hilarious and so totally thoughtful. You are so lucky!ReplyDelete
What a thoughtful hubby- he's a keeper! Love his choice of fabrics and the shop. I live in a northern suburb of Cincinnati and Sewn is a great addition to our fair city. Tell your hubby he isn't the only Asian in the city. My husband is orginally from China - he came here in his teens. There is a Pan-Asian professional group that he's very active in. I will say that Asians are certainly a minority in this part of the country. When we lived in California, he was much less of a anomaly. What's really crazy is our sons use their father's last name (very Chinese) but they don't look Asian at all. Seems like my Italian genes dominated - who knew!ReplyDelete
What BEAUTIES and what a great story too! You have some wonderful fabrics to spark your creativeness!!(And a wonderful DH too!!)ReplyDelete
do you have a pattern for the lounge pants? I'm looking to make some golf pants for DH, in a CRAZY fabric.. He is willing to wear a nutty attention getting fabric.. not a shy man.ReplyDelete
Hubby's Adventure post was wonderful. I was right along with him.
His haul, or rather your? haul is wonderful.
I l♥ve every one of those fabrics. I've got to get some of each for my new STASH.
You guys have put a big smile in my heart.♥
Aww! All of it is gorgeous...he has great taste!ReplyDelete
I read his story yesterday....he sounds absolutely darling!ReplyDelete
Wonderful fabrics and a great story! How lucky to have a DH who buys fabric for you AND gets it spot on :)ReplyDelete
I just sent you an email with the quilt I made out of my Carmen bundle....a gift from one of my quilting students. I think we are BOTH pretty lucky girls!!!!ReplyDelete
I don't suppose your hubby would be willing to give classes to the husbands of others would he? He could do it on line. My DH is good and at times sill help me pick fabrics but to go to a store out of town on his own is something I don't see happening. Lucky girl.ReplyDelete
Lucky girl! Beautiful fabric and very special husband... Enjoy!ReplyDelete
You could definitely hire him out to coach other hubbies - what a star! Enjoy your new fabric - he chose really well!ReplyDelete
What I want to know is WHERE is the Fabric Hero DH store where you found this man???? What an amazing guy!ReplyDelete
WOW! Lovely fabric and wonderful husband. I didn't know they made them so sweet. Can you husband gives lessons?? :-)ReplyDelete
Your DH is a great storyteller!ReplyDelete
What a fantastic story! Your DH has great taste too! :)ReplyDelete
Oohh! Lovely. I love Carmen by Anna Griffin. Fifi is pretty, too. Love the colors. You found a keeper!ReplyDelete
So,your husbands story was hilarious. I want to read it to my husband, but I think it would be too 'hint-hinty'. I did manage to drag my husband to Sewn earlier this month. We were in Cincy for an anniversary get-a-way. Great store. Brought home some Fifi & Fido. Love it.ReplyDelete
That is so sweet! Even sweeter that puppy!!!ReplyDelete
