I quilt on my longarm machine for clients late morning and afternoon, then do my own piecing in the evening until about 11 PM. I'm so a night person so this schedule works for me. When the holiday rush comes my own quilts take second hand to my clients quilts. I barely have time to come up for a breath from the first of November til the week before Christmas. I'm always eager for the first of the new year when I can look forward to having time to devote to my own projects.
