That excitement for a project is so much a part of any creativity! And I think it's so well done that you're including your DH in the project. It will mean so much more to him, I bet, if he sees it unfold, knowing it's especially for him!
I embarked on a project a couple of years ago to make afghans for each of my close family members and I'm up to 9 and counting! Still two more to go. And their anticipation of the finished project kept things energized for me and them.
So congratulations, Angela! And let us all know how it's going!
