    What will stop me quilting. Reading these threads. But most. Trying to design a pattern for a quilt or bag or how do I. Quilt a top. My mind is always working on quilting but my hands. Are the lazy part as you can see from this typing. I need hands which will work as hard asmy Brian.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I'm the main care giver for my 92 yo MIL who lives with us. I spend Sunday night and Monday with my 85 yo mom who lives 90 miles from me. My Dad passed away in March so helping my mom is a given. I also tend a granddaughter that is in first grade. We have 7 children and 18 grandchildren (one more on the way). Always one or more of them is/are here to visit spend time with us or just because and they are always welcome along with neighbors and friends . We've bought a new home and are selling the one we are living in. My husband is still working so since I am the one who is "retired" all of the business stuff landed on me. I still find an hour or two to spend in my studio each day. I quilt, therefore I survive. Oh ... and snakes would have me running down the hallway screaming!
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    Housework keeps me from quilting today and some other days too.

    work, life in general, lack of interest sometimes, work, household chores, work, laundry, work, worrying about my son in boot camp, work, boredom, work......

    then other times all I do is quilt

    thankfully it is never snakes
    Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.

    If you are talking about sewing/quilting for my own things it is customer work that comes first as well as my regular job that keeps me limited on time to work on customer's quilts as well as my own. Would love to have it just be working on customer's quilts that kept me away from my own projects.
    I also baby sit my new grandson one day a week. ( but I try to have hand sewing to work on while he is here and sleeping,)
    However, in my spare time I am also blogging, working on a book, preparing to teach beginner quilting starting in Jan., designing quilts and maintaining my quilting sales....
    Oh, and sleeping and eating!

    Work and no quiet space. Even though I have a large room, it doesn't close off from the rest of the house, so it can be noisy.

    My 16 year old twins and their band and athletic schedules and work keep my from ever getting up into my sewing room. Makes me mad sometimes. Wish I has more time for ME!

    I'm sewing, but its all about costumes for my nephews, purses that people ordered after they saw the one I made my dear MIL, nothing just because I feel like it! I don't mind, I love those nephews a lot!

    work :/ Although since I work as office manager in my husband's business I can bring my sewing to work with me and get some done during the day

    Cyn, I too had a snake in my house the other day. Saw one of my cats playing with something and didn't really think anything of it- kind of looked like the pipe cleaners they're so fond of batting around the kitchen floor- but I became concerned when the 'pipe cleaner' moved on it's own when she put it down Bleck! I picked it up with the kitchen tongs and tossed it outside.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
