Does your husband call you names?!?

So, Clint and I were talking the other night and I was showing him all the possibilities of quilts that I want to make with our Fat Quarter Bundles and he looked at me and said "You're a Fat Quarter Bundle." It was the wrong thing to say because I wasn't sure how to take it since I am getting "fat." Baby fat that is, and I am not feeling all too well about myself as of late and he is a teaser - he's always been a teaser - but he's going to be in the dog house for that comment!

So, have you been called a "fat quarter bundle," or a "honeybun," or a "jellyroll?" I think it would be okay to be called a "honeybun," - come to think of it, I think Clint has called me that too - but I don't like being called a "fat quarter bundle," or my least favorite quilting term to be called would be a "jelly roll."

By the way, if you have any granddaughters or daughters, Clint's sister started a new website with beautiful dresses. She is having a sale today only for $25 dresses and free shipping. If you put in the promo code "Judi Madsen" then you will get a free gift. Go check out the details on her blog here.

I get honeybun, hubby would find out how sharp a rotary cutter is on his precious Alabama pillow if he called me a FQ bundle, and he's a teaser too, but that would push me over the limit. :P

Considering how beautiful and full of potential a fat quarter bundle is, I think Clint probably meant it in a very loving and supportive way! How's that for a save? My husband has never referred to me as anything remotely resembling fabric. He will call me by my full name if he thinks there is reason to be upset with me. Or he will call me silly sweet things and go on and on with all these fake sweet names when he wants me to do something for him, or if he wants to spend some money that he thinks I won't want him to spend, usually on electronic gadgets. Guys are funny about things like this, and sometimes they just don't get it. I'd say forgive him this time, but next time he better stick with the daintier pre-cuts when he's thinking of a term of endearment for you!

Hi I think seeing that your husband is in your business with you and her kow anout the STUFF I would say that he was saying something nice like you are so creative and colorful like all the fat quarter bundels and you can do anything we would like. Like we can do anything with the fat quarter bundels and make creative quilts and things.
I hope you can understand what I'm trying to think.
So Clint you should like me because I may be the only one on your side.LOL

It would be hard to laugh that one off. I'm sure he meant it in the best possible way though.

Yes....that's a tough name to be called when you are pregnant!!!

Love the cute dresses. They are really girlie ones.

Sandy said...

Too Funny!

I stopped at your sister in law's shop. And you are right, her dresses are beautiful. If I only had a daughter or ganddaughter!

Gene Black said...

Hmm...sounds like a great way to "make him pay" is to get some of that fabric you were wanting out of the store stock. Tell him you got upset about being a FQB and needed some comfort! Ha haahaa

Em said...

I am confident that he meant "PHAT" quarter bundle which means, you are one hot mama!!!!!

Sarah Craig said...

My husband just calls me "obsessed"!!!

My husband's never called me any of those because he knows he'd get cut. He's once called me a laxative... apparently because I get sh*t moving LOL!

Beth said...

Clint would never call you that if you actually resembled anything close to a Fat quarter bundle, because honey you barley resemble a skinny quarter bundle. And at least it's your hubby, I got the lady at church telling Roy I needed to cut back on the fatty foods, because I was already showing. I wanted to Fat quarter bundle that women!
