    Decided I'm a crabby woman when I don't get to sew. I have either had company, working on church projects or traveling to check on my 90 yr Mother since the middle of September. I need to sew for my sanity! So Monday I'm closing the door not answering the phone and my DH will have to fin for himself. Sewing machine here I come!!!!

    I keep saying that and life keeps getting in the way. I know just what you mean about needing it for your sanity.

    Just tell everyone before hand that you have an appointment, then maybe they won't bother you. I know the feeling I have the need to sew for my sanity. Good luck.

    Girl, you need a sign with "Quilting Therapy in Session" to put on your door. My daughter has what she calls "retail therapy" and goes shopping, you need to sew!!!!!

    I know how you feel. I've had to put away my sewing machine in preparation for a visit from my daughter and her family. Much as I'm looking forward to seeing them I'm sure missing my sewing.

    You have a PLAN - good for you - get everything ready and tell everyone you're 'going sewing all day'. . . they'll think you're 'going AWAY sewing all day'.
    I agree with you and others that YOU need to give YOURSELF a break every now and then just to keep your SANITY.
    So do what you need to do this weekend (clean, cook, bathe, pay bills, get your nails done, call the family) and then lock the doors, shut off the phone and sewwww away.

    Good luck on your plans.
    Every time I plan I have to cancel it for something.

    Lock the door, turn off the phone and hope no one bothers you. I'm badly in need of a *fix* myself but it seems almost everyday I have to take DH to PT or some other Dr. appt. It positively exhausts me and I'm having to nap in my only free time. Try to set aside one day a week for *me* time. My day is Sunday, but in all honesty, I don't always get it!! Good luck!

    When I have that problem, I start by just looking for an hour a day to tidy up in there, or do something small. It will work itself out.

    I know what you mean. I need constant doses of either my "quilting therapy" or "horse therapy". Not a happy camper when I don't get one or the other.
