He Betrayed Me

Last night, Joe said something to me that I never thought he'd say. I don't know really where to start other than to say that what he said is unforgivable. I really thought things were going well. I was blindsided.

I was sweeping the kitchen floor when he accosted me. That is when my world started to fall apart. He said the words no woman wants to hear. Ever. He didn't tell me that my butt was fat. He didn't tell me that he was leaving me. He told me that I had too much fabric. ::gasp::

What?!?!?

Who is this person that I married? I don't recognize him anymore. He's the one who wants to spend eternity with me and he thinks these horrible things about me?

I won't even show you my fabric. I am embarrassed to think that there is a very slight possibility that Joe might be right ... this time. Right now I just need your support and sympathy while I try to sort out this mess that has become my life.

My overflowing scrap pile.

DH knows not to say anything... ;o) But I think he'd be a little shocked nonetheless to look at Quicken and find out how much I spend at Joann's in a month.

He calls it our years supply. LOL!

Mika said...

Oh you scared me! LOL! My husband and I have made a deal, if I can buy fabric, he can buy tools-so it's a win/win situation. Like Nikko said though, as long as he doesn't check and see how much I've ACTUALLY spent on the fabric co-ops and the like lol. It's just nice to say-but retail is over $9 a yard honey!!!! LOL!

*GASP*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you give him "the look"????

I would have :)

kirsten said...

my husband has kind of skirted around that issue, too. but then, he did move his clothes out of his dresser so i could fill it with fabric... what would fit anyway. :)

Lera,

I used to get that too but then I had my husband build shelves on the upper half of my sewing room walls (its an old house with 10' ceilings so thats a lot of shelves)to store all my fabric. Now if he brings it up, I tell him that all that fabric folded up and stacked on those shelves is acting as insulation and is in fact saving us lots of money on our utility bills. How can he argue with that?

one can never have enough fabric. just remember that. It is a basic life need like water, food & shelter.

John told me that we need to buy some new laundry baskets since ours just became permanent fabric bins. haha.

Please, don't ever let our husbands meet. They might gang up on us.

And there is no such thing as too much fabric.

This spring at a quilt show a vendor told me that one of her friends made her PROMISE that when she died, the friends would come over and remove all the fabric from the house (under the beds, stacked in closets, back of kitchen cupboards) so her husband would never know......

Sarah and Jack said...

LOL

Have you done that Happy Zombie fabric folding thing yet? When I took the time to fold mine up all nice and neat using that tutorial it looks like a LOT less fabric.

Oh my gosh Lera... YOU ~ ARE ~ TOO ~ FUNNY!!! You had me concerned there for a minute.. I didn't know what to expect.

How dare he say such an absurd thing! There is no such thing as too much fabric.. it's like saying there is too much oxygen...lol

Lora said...

What kind of man did you marry anyways?!?!?!?! Could he be my hubby's brother???? LOL I hear things like that sometimes... Too much yarn, too many beads, too many rubber stamps...can't you pick ONE craft and stick with it. You want a Sewing machine? he asks...you won't even sew a button on my pants!! LOL

Oh, no. You know what this calls for, right? The. cold. shoulder. (you know what I mean.)

hee hee, snicker, snicker.

beki said...

Agh! How could he say such a thing!

capello said...

THAT BASTARD!

(does that help any?)

Kathy said...

Sheesh! You had me scared there for a minute. Joe really said that??? Pshaw!! If my husband ever said anything like that to me he'd get it right back about his fly tying material and his Febreeze and label making addictions!

Guess this means you need to sew more so he won't see just how much there really is. :)

TinkerBlue said...

NEVER. There is no so thing as too much fabric. Please don't let my hubby ever compare notes with Joe or Tim (Lori's)

Little Munchkins said...

Remember this - there is no such thing as too much fabric. Now console yourself and buy even more yummy Japanese fabrics :)

Anonymous said...

Shame on Joe for saying such a thing.Of course my husband thinks I buy way too much DMC floss and AIDA cloth. BWW

amandajean said...

I know how you could get rid of some of those scraps! do you want to do a swap of yardage for your scraps?

(I know I am sick and twisted and backwards.....you don't have to tell me. If only I had some red gingham to send on over.)

Stephanie said...

What a horrible thing to say? Does this man have no heart? Get thee to craft counseling ASAP! Lol!

Chara Michele said...

Totally laughing after reading this post! :) How dare he say such things!

Cici said...

LOL! we're just finishing up the move and I was SOOO nervous my husband would comment on the boxes (ahem...a.few.of.them.) of fabric he was moving.

phew. it was too hot for him to notice what was written on the sides of the boxes.
