Ooh, I always love
threads like this! It's so nice that so many of us here have been blessed with spouses who support our hobby. (Even if they do roll their eyes a little -- those things happen in marriage from time to time). Life is beautiful.
My husband fortunately also enjoys Star Wars, and even has a few figures of his own that I'm not allowed to use as fodder. Though he's been known to goggle a bit when I come home from Target with even 2 or 3 figures to use as fodder, he's very nice about the whole thing. At worst he ribs me about cutting up all those poor little plastic figures, etc. Best of all, he listens very patiently when I start rambling about all the problems, etc. I'm having with the figures I'm working on.
What he really
balks at is when I need to stop in at a fabric store, or craft store, or beading store. (And I frequently have to stop at such places in the course of my custom work.) Such places are too "girly" for him to stand even a few minutes. It's kind of funny, really.
But hey, if that's the worst of it after 5 years of marriage, I thnk we're doing pretty well!
