    I try to sew every day--at least something. I do help my daughter with child care 2-3 days per week. They are not full or all days. The rest of the time is mine. I live alone and usually put a couple hours in evenings. When and if I watch TV, I'm at my sewing machine. I cannot just sit and watch TV. I always have a couple projects going at once, some big and some small.

    Ive never really thought about the actual time I do sew, but I try to get in as much as I can -- depending on a lot of things like other commitments, my mood, what's going on in our life at the time. Football season is a good sewing season for me. DH watches a lot of football on TV so I work on projects. This past weekend was a good one. I worked several hours Saturday and Sunday working on a pieced back for a quilt I'm making for our DS. I did have the movie channel on in the sewing room.

    It depends on a lot of different things, such as current season and current project(s). I spent the last two months (VERY hot weather here) staying indoors with the A/C on, making sampler blocks; I worked on them a lot every day. Even so, I still have less than half of the 111 blocks done and have not yet chosen the colors for the rest of them; however, I need to invest my time & energy in hand quilting and some yardwork for the remainder of this year. I don't spend very many hours per week on hand quilting, unfortunately, so progress there is very slow.

    Well, let me see here...DH has tv football games on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays--so there are full days of quilting if I wish. Then there are Guilds and sewing clubs on Monday mornings; a friend and I charity sew 4-1/2 hours on Wednesdays and my evenings can be spent in sewing room too cause DH has his nose in a periodical or paper then anyway. I am laughing all the way downstairs and loving every minute of it.

    I have a hard time, work 4 - 10 hour days, and seem to spend the weekend and my day off cleaning the house, etc. Have to really get back to finishing projects. Hopefully we will get to retire late next year, Hurray, camping and quilting!

    I quilt probably 3 hours on most days. It really depends what else is going on in my life. When Mollly, my yorkiepoo is sleeping, that's when I sew. When she wakes up she reminds me that it is time to take a break. :-D
    I forgot to say that being retired :-D I can sew justabout anytime I feel like quilting.
