    I saw a topic asking `how many hours` and I thought: hmm, let`s see. DD is anemic and I`m taking care of her gorgeous 6 week-old ... my GD!! (had her here all 5 days this week while DD slept and de-stressed) and ... we`re moving next week (18 years in this house) and packing and de-cluttering and then DD & her hubby move the following week (doesn`t take a genius to figure out who`s going to be doing a lot of that move).

    But about the original question .. how many hours a day ... well I had my hand on my sewing maching today !!! ... to put the cover on and get it with all the other stuff ready to move ... so ... maybe 1 minute ...

    And in May I broke my wrist and only a few days after the cast came off in June, DD had her baby and then there was the finalizing of the sale of our house and our purchase of a townhouse that will mean less work (ha! I can only hope) ... and I`m newly retired (June) and I had this dream of sitting in a real sewing room and creating beautiful things but I think that`s a bit farther down the road than I thought.

    I hope you get lots of sewing time when you get settled in your new place :) sometimes we have to wait just a little while. Good luck with your move.

    Make sure you work in a little time for yourself somewhere, even if it's not sewing! Enjoy your granddaughter!

    Oh, I'm enjoying DG. It's funny how as a parent, you're so stressed about the other stuff but as a grandparent, you can just sit and enjoy. With all the boxes and chaos, there I sat, for over an hour, cuddling and saying 'patty cake, patty cake, baker's man' and clapping her hands together and enjoying her beautiful smile!

    I know you are enjoying that grand baby and during her nap time you can dream about your future sewing area. Sometimes the bumps in the road becomes blessings.
