    Colors...

    Sometimes my DH gets on my nerves *lol*.....anyways when I'm choosing colors for a quilt - he is all up in my face and likes the drab colors, earth tones and black. Well I can live with those for certain quilts (camo, civil war etc.).

    But I am all about bright, happy colors. I'm getting ready to make a quilt for my DGD and I told him that I am going to use bright/light pretty colors and border it all in black, she likes black and purple so that will be what I use for the back. She is also a girly girl and likes girly colors. Well he thinks I should use batiks because they're cool - he said I shouldn't use neon colors....ummmm.....excuse me...she is 11 years old. I refuse to make my grand-daughters drab, dreary quilts.

    He needs to stay out of my hobbies *haha*

    When I was making my GD's quilt hubby kept walking by with "that look" on his face. He then admitted when it was done that he never thought it would look good with those bright colors. Wait until he sees the quilt I am making for him. I am using crackle. It not only has color but a design. They are not bright colors so he should be happy.

    Why do they but in? Just there interest in us I guess.

        LOL! I used to call my now EXDH "FORD" - because he had the better idea -at least he thought so (Refering to the ads for Ford motor Co.).

        Glad I don't have to deal with that any more.

          I LOVE bright colours! There is a pic on the front of a quilting mag that I picked up this month...cannot for the life of me remember the name of it! But there is a quilt on the front I am DYING to make! Has bright blue with orange sashing...it's the actual quilting that makes it...Oh MAN I wish I could find the pic! I searched online but can't find it anywhere. I'll have to take a pic tonight.

          And btw..I liked your soap box! LOL! My DH is thankfully quite helpful...I think I'd stuff him under the table with the soapbox if he annoyed me like that. LOL!

            *lol* I don't know why they are like that.....I'm not curious about his hobbies, reloading bullets just doesn't do it for me or whatever else he does in his man cave.

                LOL.....my DH is the same way. He did not like the ducky quilt I made he thinks every thing should be camo or earth tones too.

                  DH doesn't mind the bright colors, he just has a hard time with things not quite being all matchy, matchy. He can have his opinion of course, but has nothing to say about the final project.

                    He is "in my face 24/7... caring more than anyone could possibly tolerate other than me, cause' i know he's nervous that i might just "drop at any moment"...LOL and then he'd not get his home cooked meals and lunch served and have no one to take out for pizza with the gang, and for the life of him, he'd never know what in the world to do with the women that would be lining up at our door to "snap him up" if i died!!!!

                      My DH just smiles and nods and says "Very nice!" when I show him stuff I'm sewing.
                      In return, I ask him how his golf game was, and smile and nod while he tells me about it. I also wait until he's asleep in his chair before I ever so gently remove the remote control from his hand and navigate the TV away from the Golf Channel...

                            I don't dare ask my DH about his hobbies, work or anything I'm not really interested in.....I'll be the one sleeping in the chair (but sometimes I forget myself and ask him *zzzzzzzzzzzzz*).
