    do you actually sew? I seem to spend most of my time dreaming about making this or making that and don't get much accomplished do you?

    I try and get 1 hour a day in. I'm retired, and it seems like I'm busy all the time, or reading stuff on this darned quilting board. I'm going to sign off now & sew!

    I try for at least one. Some days I do more, some days I do less.

    I try to get at least 4-5 hrs at the sewing machine and 2-3 hrs at the longarm. Too many hrs on the QB. I need to get back to work.

    I sew/quilt everyday. Hours? Usually from the time I get up in the morning until I go to bed at night. Everyday is not like that but lots of days. We (husband and I) are both retired and have both mothers in Assisted Living and are with them or doing for them lots of the time but sewing is on the top of my list of things to do. I usually keep a handwork/binding project to carry with my wherever I go. I was always taught that idle hands are the devils-workshop so I don't like down time.

    I only sew about four hours a week.
    Geez, I feel like a slacker!

    During the week I only average a bout 20 minutes a day; and I have to set the timer to make sure I get that much in. I work a 4 day week, so one day is all mine to do whatever I want, some days I'm surprised when my husband comes home @4p & I've been in the sewing room since 5am!
