    Hi,

    I was wondering when everyone quilts or sew? I have been sewing at night time after hubby goes to bed. I have my sewing machine set up in family room with big screen tv, computer so it makes it easy to do all 3 things in one room.

    I am now paper piecing and making some hexagons by hand.

    I hope to hear back from all of you quilters around the world.

    I quilt whenever. It could be morning, evening or the middle of the night.

    I'm getting ready to start something. I want to make a bargello. Have you ever made one on them?

    I mostly quilt at night. I think I have my days & nights mixed up. LOL The house is quiet and no phone ringing off the hook. But with that phone, you cannot nap during the day either. *sigh* I do sew in the afternoon sometimes. Great question. Thanks for asking.

    I quilt whenever I get a chance

    ...'tho I have got out of the habit of carrying a "ditty bag" of hand work (a ziplock with some hexies or a stitchery with a few threaded needles)

    I quilt whenever I get a chance. I usually wake up at 3-3:30 and have a cup of coffee, then go upstairs and quilt for a while until my husband wakes up. Unless I get stuck on the board :) :) Otherwise, it depends on when I can get time alone.

    I take yo-yo's with me if we travel. I have them in a small cosmetic bag with about 50 circles pre-cut. I can whip up one or two on a short trip.

    I quilt every free minute I get working on 4 different quilts now. I have 3 doing by machine and 1 doing by hand only. Thats the one I take with me to work on.

    I try to do it in daytime - if I have hand work to do, I will do that in the evening.

    I generally do all my sewing in the evenings as I work full time and have other hobbies that take up the daytime at weekends.

    I try to get at least a couple of hours in a few times a week. :)
