    I finally have my room, my TV, my design wall, and my Netflex. I love it in here. But I find myself sewing a little - watching tv a little, sew a little more, then looking at some of my books. Check Facebook - check the Quilt Board.

    All this makes my project take 5 times longer than it really could. Seems I am a slow sewer.

    How about you?

    I am slow, too. I think I have ADD. I cannot stick with anything, right now getting my new cabinets in the sewing room and getting it organized.

    Here it is. As it stands. I have to admit - I am a bit of a neat freak and I clean everything up every time I stop sewing. This is as messy as it gets. My husband call my need to have everthing put away "my crazy". :-)

    you are not a slow sewer.

    you are just not an obsessive quilter.

    My family calls my sewing room "the black hole" - I go in and lose all track of time. Occasionally I'll have music or talk radio on, but most of the time I enjoy the quiet. I think I'm a slow sewer, because I rip and re-do so often. All my current projects can get done when they are done, so that makes me go a bit slower.
