    I try to do 1 - 2 hours every night after work and 8 - 10 on the weekends. I can really get "lost" in my "bat cave" as my husband calls it. Last week I was informed that the paper mill where I am the Admin Asst. is closing, so by September I may be able to do 8 - 10 hours a day! I am shocked at the closing of the Mill, but I am only two years away from retirement, so not as rough for me as some of the young guys/gals with young families.

    I'm with you ... I spend more time day dreaming than actually doing :oops:

    ETA --- now that I've read all the replies I'm depressed coz I work full time and squeeze my quilting in on the weekends. I drive about an hour and a half each day so I get to day dream about quilts then LOL

    I realized Monday that we will be traveling almost all of September. Tons of projects I want done before first gb arrives in December, not to mention Christmas gifts, etc. So starting Tuesday I've decided to sew everyday from Noon to 4pm. Back to it..just taking a quick break...lol.

    It just depends if I'm working on a quilt I might spend 8 hours.

    Not enough. I work full time and still have teens at home so I have a wish list of items to work on. Someday I will be at the sewing machine more... just not now.
