    That's a no-brainer. Of course, quilting!

    Same problem I had yesterday. Did a little of both ... shopped a little too. I did get backing on a quilt - ready to quilt now. I always want to quilt but have a hard time enjoying it if I have other things I need tobe doing. Guess that is why I get so little quilting done. I gotta learn to let it go I guess.

    I would say quilt! If I didn't make the mess I don't clean it up. Small children, pets, excluded.
    Got fabric?

    "The only place housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary." I have an embroidery design that says that and I take it literally.

    Now what is the use of cleaning house before quilting? You know you want to vacuum AFTER sewing.

    Here is how I think about it....on my deathbed, am I gonna say...."gee, I wish I had cleaned house more"...OR...gee, I wish I had quilted more....hmmm? There is your answer! Of course, occasionally, the house has to be cleaned...dog gone it!

    I know exactly what you mean! I am working on several UFOs and trying to finish one a week. A clean house doesn't even begin to compare to the feeling of accomplishment there!

    I say do a little of both! Do the house work first THEN go quilt or else the housework may never get done. lol
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I take a minute to load the dishwasher, than speed thru the bathrooms, the dust bunnies can wait!! All of that takes 5 minutes than on to the sewing room unless hubby needs me in the shop.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I would rather lance the dirt after quilting.
    You know quilting makes a mess and m
    Needs cleaning after quilting.
    Don't need to do it twice.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    On my days off I get up early get my housework done, put something in the crockpot and spend the rest of my day quilting.

    I'd do both. Make a list of the top priorities in house cleaning then set a timer for 20 minutes...clean as hard and as fast as you can in those 20 then when the timer goes off set it for 20 again and go quilt...this is what I do when I want to quilt but know I have other things that need my attention. If I don't make a list of the housework I want to get done then I keep finding other things to do that really could have waited then get mad cuz I didn't spend any time quilting. This is what works for me...
