    Default Re: Has anyone encountered your partner not being okay with gifts?

    Just love him for who and what he is and keep reminding him this is part of who you are. It just takes time and patience to train a man. And sometimes a BIG frying pan All I have to do is mention the pan and it gets dh's attention.

    Is it time? Money? Or both?

    Lets face it, quilters are the only ones (and their loved ones) who know the costs of time and money put into a quilt. Your coworkers have not a clue. Because they have no idea, they may not have the same respect for the quilt as you both do. If you found out that one of the gifts you gave a coworker ended up at goodwill or in the trash, you would be hurt. Quilting allows you to give your heart in that gift. That makes you vulnerable. I think he may be trying to protect you. Talk to him and ask the right question why he feels like that.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.
