    Kyssy - Congrats on a new baby! Your life will change dramatically, but I'll bet that you'll find time for sewing during nap time!

    I don't get as much sewing done in the summer either. I have more outings because of the nice weather, more yard work, more company coming to visit. But I still think that there is nuthin' better to cool down and gather your thoughts than taking a sewing break. I remember when my kids were young that I'd be busy for a month in the summer making school clothes.

    Well, Granny Cat, I am thinking that as long as we enjoy the time we are wasting, what does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? I slowly get a block done here and there. The point of it all is for enjoyment anyway right? No one is depending on me to get anything done at a certain time and I am not trying to make any money off of it. I sure spend a lot though, LOL. Maybe we are being too hard on ourselves? I work about 50 hours a week and usually drive three hours one way every other weekend to be with my daughter and her family, so I don't have much "extra time". So, valid reason or just an excuse? I don't know, but I do get pretty frustrated with myself sometimes over it.

    I have 8 grand kids..........All of them except one are here some time during the week, to sleep over or hang out, I drive them to work or summer school.....I am the only one home all day. I feel like the old woman who lived in a shoe....Every morning have to do the same chores and wash the clothes they leave.

    If I get a few minutes I sew.......my quilting room is staying clean :roll:

    I go in spurts too. I told myself I had to pick only 1 hobby, so quilting became it. Sometimes I miss painting and sketching but giving away all the "stuff" makes it easier. I gave away my crochet stuff too. Just have my quilting stuff and the rug hooking stuff from my Gram that I can't part with.

    I find I sew and then take a break and come back again. I'm hoping this week end I can get the curtains and toppers and bedskirt done for my room so I can start the quilt for the bed. Need it done by 8/2 when family comes. First time in 7 years my room will be coordinated instead of cast offs.
