    I go in spurts of projects. I will quilt for a while, then switch to a different project so I don't burn out.

    I am having a.... BABY! ehehheh I love it when people ask me that, I usually say an alligator or something smart like that. We don't know the sex of the baby, we are old fashioned that way. I am due Aug 23rd. Which seems waaaaay too soon on some days and not soon enough on others. All of this is bad timing on my part. I took my first quilting class and a month later I was pregnant. Everyone keeps telling me that I won't quilt after the baby is born for atleast a couple of years! So I am kinda nervous that I will forget what little I know! But time will tell!

    You'll have time, just not as much as you would like. :)
    When people would ask me what I was having when I was pregnant, I would tell them kittens. lol

    Well, Congrats to you!!! Keep us updated on your progress! (baby & quilting) You might be able to squeeze in a few minutes of quilting during baby's naptime and if you cant quilt, read mags and look at patterns and this board, keep the interest going and it will all work out. Is this your first?

    I had done so much quilting, that I gave it up for a whole year. To even look at another piece of material sent me out in cold sweat. Now though I can't stop and have about three projects in mind when I have finished this one.

    I like to always have some type of sewing or needlework project going. I seem to go and forth between sewing and knitting. Now that I'm retired, I have fallen into a pattern of doing housework or errands in the morning and either sewing or knitting in the afternoon. That seems to work for me.

    There are days when I wish I could do nothing but quilt - but I'm afraid it'd get old after awhile and I certainly don't want that to happen. I've gotten in the rut of doing a top and stopping... not quilting. I do NOT like that!! I love to see a finished quilt. Too often I tie a quilt because it's quicker - I don't like tied quilts either so go figure. I would like a balance in my life so I could quilt, houseclean, raise my children, be a good wife and still have time to read a good book sometime. Oh - and don't let me forget gardening!! I look forward to not having to work and can spend my time doing what I really like - all the above - too afraid my kids will be raised by then!! :)
