    Well, I[m retired and I still can't find enough time! LOL

    Seriously, I have several quilt tops that I want to quilt, but the day just disappears on me. Where does it go?

    I homeschool 7 children. Finding time to sew is impossible. I MAKE the time to sew and quilt. If I didn't, then I would never get around to it. It is also a stress relief for me, like many others here on the board. Speaking of Christmas gifts, I need to get cracking!

    I am handicapped and have done almost all of my quilting in 15 min. at a time but do accomplish something when I am able, it just takes me longer.

    Live today---no regrets

    Make time for yourself when you can. Had the same as y'all , work, kids, house, hubby( he was in the PaANG-Retired) . Kids out own,but now the grandkids and grandanimals. Hubby and I retired he from Con-Ag,me Pa.Dept of Corrections(officer). So, now I can sew and we can travel,Guess Again--I am now the caregiver for my 86 year old Mom( I am and only),who has vision problems,hearing and is now living with us. So goes the circle of life. Do not put off making time for yourself do it now if for only a few minutes you just never know. Live today as if it was going to be your last. No regrets.

    Reading all these brings back memories. In the late 60's, I remember sitting at the sewing machine while the little ones were napping (the big ones were in school) and listening to my cuckoo clock tick and the furnace humming, and feeling that all is right with the world.

    The reason I felt so good about the furnace was that for 5 years and 3 kids I lived with no bathroom. Then another 5 years and 3 more kids with an oil space heater in the dining room and wood parlor heaters in the living room and kitchen. I had to "keep the home fires burning". I loved working the wood and the fire, but I sure was content when we put in the furnace. It used less oil and heated the whole house.

    I don't wait for the time to appear. I make time to quilt. I have three children. I work 12 hour days (3/week). I usually go to bed before our children do, but I MAKE the time. It is my release.
    Go forth and sew!
