Default Sewing All Day

From the time I got up this morning and had my first cup of coffee I have been sewing. I am making 2 more Cleopatra's Fan block for a table topper. Cutting is no problem but the piecing is still a bit tricky. It is now going on 4pm and I must spend a bit of time with DH before he thinks I fell of the face of the Earth. He has called out to me twice and I keep telling him I am coming. The sewing bug has also kept me from here. (if anyone noticed) Does anyone else do this?
Back to the sewing..

All the time....I could be sewing all day and never think about cleaning, dishes, dinner, none of the "other stuff". I am retired going on 3 years now and I absolutely cannot get over how I can actually finish projects. It is so gratifying, so much fun. I thought that would pass, but it has not. I literally make myself get my chores done in the morning, I work out for an hour and then the way I see it.....the day is mine!!!

Those are the best days ever! If only I didn't have work, cats to feed, hubby to check in with - I'd probably be faint on the floor of the sewing room, but happy! I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful day!

I sew 4-5 hours a day. I have lots of jobs at home. Some I can put off others I can't.

My Husband is retired, not me.

I don't want to cook or clean. I make myself do what I have too but I would stay sewing and cutting and on the board all day everyday if I could and I ask My DH if he is lonesome and no, he has the TV to his self. He had been out rake and picking up leaves. I hate to cook anymore. Can't we just have a sandwich or pizza or soup. I cooked so much for Thanksgiving and Christmas I am taking as many breaks as I can.

I want whatever you ladies are drinking...lol....I have just the opposite problem..I keep finding 10 thousand other things that keeps me from being in my sewing room ..BUT...in my defense, I have been sick for the last few weeks and absolutely nothing got done so I am finally feeling better and playing catch up on other stuff.....That's my story & I am sticking to it
BTW my yard looks really nice all cleaned up & we have clean clothes to wear lol

DH use to come in the sewing room and ask me are you still sewing? Now when he goes out to his shop or starts reading a book I aske him multiple times are you still______? He said it was annoying and I said yeah it is. He got the message. LOL DH eats when he gets hungry, he doesn't expect me to have it on the table every meal.

My husband loves to cook so he's the one who calls me to eat dinner. Sometimes he'll text me that it's ready lol.
A far cry from my parents. My Dad couldn't boil water and would have probably starved to death w/o Mom haha
Julia, your Cleopatra's preview was gorgeous. Can't wait to see more!! Keep working on it!

I wish I could have a "sew all day" time. My husband always likes me to sit and watch TV with him. Even if I go in and sew for a short time he is coming in the sewing room to tell me something. This happens about 5 or 6 times so I just give up and go watch TV with him. I do enjoy the days that he works or goes golfing.
