Usually about maybe 3-5 hours a week but that is changing starting immediately!!! I am now "retired" or "unemployed" or FREE!!!!!!

in spring/summer i am out in the gardens, so very rarely am i sewing/quilting. maybe on average 5 hours a week. unless weather does not permit me to be out. in the autumn into winter - probably 6-7 hours on average a day.

I spend about 1-2 hours most days working on one of my quilting projects. More when I can.

Now, thinking about quilting is another matter. I can't say how much time I probably spend thinking/planning/dreaming about my next projects.

If only my skills would would progress as fast as my planning does!

i sew about 10-15 hours on the weekend i dont sew much during the week as i work 10 hours a day mon thru thurs and i bowl on mon nite. it just depends on how much housecleaning i have to do on the weekend and how many other errands i have to do. i love making quilts and i try to make sure i have time to sew my hubby refers to it as my therapy and as i have a stressful job he tries to help out as much as he can and make sure i have time to quilt. he even helps me select fabrics and decide borders and placement he has a excellent eye for color. lol when i take him fabric shopping sometimes i have to share him with other customers as they watch him help me and decided they want him to help them too )))).

2-4 hours a day. It would be more if I wasn't here so often. I have another UFO and a Bargello WIP calling to me as I write. Now would be the perfect time to sew because the cat is sleeping. I can't do much when shes awake because she likes to help out so much (see avatar). I can't start sewing before 9:00 a.m or after 9:00 p.m because of paper-thin walls and I am a polite neighbor. Since my transportation is limited to the city bus, I have to follow their schedule. So, let me adjust my original estimate. I sew maybe 1-2 hours a day, unless the sun in shining and I need to mow the lawn or pull weeds.
