OOP New Obsession

It goes down like this:

Me:  Did you get me anything for Christmas yet?
Husband:  Why?  Did you get yourself something already?
Me:  Don't jump to conclusions.
Him:  I haven't shopped yet.  Is it even December?  
Me:  Ok, well don't get me anything.  
Him:  Because you bought yourself something.
Me:  Well, see, there is this fabric....
Him:  Why is it always fabric? 
Me:  Well, sometimes it's a book or rulers or patterns.  But anyway, I found this fabric that I have to have.
Him:  That's not much of a Christmas.
Me:  Well it's out of print.  And hard to find. And expensive.
Him:  How expensive?  
Me:  Well, it's really hard to find. I was searching and emailing for days.  I have to have it!  
Him:  And it is how expensive?
Me:  It has to be this.  
Him:  How expensive?
Me:  Well, Merry Christmas to me, and don't look at the PayPal account.
Him:  Is it more than the jewelry I was going to get you?
Me:  Wait, you were going to buy me jewelry?
Him:  Well, you'll never know now.  Merry Christmas.  Put some of that fabric in your stocking.

Okay, what did you score??? I do understand and love your conversation. Quilt husbands are the best.

I can totally relate! Etsy is awesome for feeding that obsession!

I don't know about you, but I'd rather have fabric than jewellery!

That is hilarious, Mary! It's so hard to describe the fabric hunt to non-fabriholics :) Can't wait to see what you make with your score!
