sewing or quilting goes in spurts during the year or are you one that just sews all year round no matter what?....I have'nt been in the mood the last couple days to sew I don't know if it's the weather which is soooo Hot right now or if I just need a little break....do any of you do this same thing?...although I am shop hopping like there no tomorrow....haha...

I have the same problem. Last week it was no holds barred...
This week I haven't even picked up a needle.
I wanted to have my nephew's quilt pieced by now, but I guess I have to start sewing first! LOL!

I DO have the quilt cut out, and all of my laundry done -probably for the first time in 2008. :oops:

I go in spurts, too. I think about it everyday, and read this board everyday but only get the chance to sew on weekends. I always feel like I am not accomplishing anything and that I waste too much time buying fabric and looking at patterns when I should be actually sewing something. I really enjoy this "time wasting" so is it wrong?

Well I am 8 months pregnant so my quilting has been severely limited. Cutting is a little hard since I can't see past my belly and sitting at the sewing machine gets uncomfortable fast. The other day though I wanted to quilt sooooooo bad but I just couldn't get comfortable. It was killing me! *laughing*

I tend to sew/quilt in spurts through out the year. Sometimes I sew for days on end then sometimes I go for weeks without touching my machine. If I'm not sewing, I'm reading quilt magazines or designing quilts.
