    I am most inspired after being at work all day with my fingers just itching to get home and sew, but like others, it just ain't gonna happen like that. Supper and laundry and work and ugh, housework, and yard work, and on and on. sometimes, I jsut say phooey on it and sew all weekend. Then come Monday, everything I should have done is staring at me after work. I need to win the lottery, retire, move to the mtns, and hire a maid. Now that would definitely inspire me :lol:

    What a good question, everyone has something to say about this one.
    I am most inspired during the day. While I'm sitting at the computer working and answering the phone, keeping the business running.....I start to day dream..... about my next project. Quilting magazines always help jump start the desire to sew a new quilt. Todays world keeps our minds so full of other things that it is hard to find a space in our cerebral corner to retain info on a new idea! well, only if your 50, I suppose. You younger ones, still have plenty of storage!!!

    Vicki, do not dismay; about once a month I try to do the exact same thing!! (It takes me a month to get cought back up so I can "skip chores" again!!) :lol: :lol:

    Catherine, I can't speak for anyone else under 50, or anyone over 50 for that matter :wink: , but speaking for myself, I can assure you I am at the point of "if something new goes in, something old is going to fall out!!" (usually what is left of my brain matter). :lol: :lol:

    Quilters keep their right frontal part of their brain intact, most of the time,, this is where everyones creativity is. (at least that is what my son's brain surgeon said,) I make sure that when I dump info, it is somewhere else in my brain..like listening to my husband telling me something about blah blah blah......what was that???? ha

    I am most inspired early in the morning. My husband leaves for work at 6:30 and sometimes I practically run upstairs to my sewing room to get started. I don't turn on music or TV, I stitch in complete silence. During the winter it was so wonderful to see the sun come up while working at something I love. Sometimes when I see all the cars driving by of people going to work I feel guilty that I earned such a wonderful retirement. Don't worry, I don't feel guilty very long.

    Skip Chores? The heck with chores.

    You are young. You will learn. Life is too short not to indulge in your passion.

    Trust me.
