Let's see....since Xmas...I would have to say less than 1. Yes, I am ashamed/embarrased to say I have not been doing any sewing/quilting. Several reasons...teaching kdg full-time and every year it is a bigger challenge...DD graduated college in Dec and moved back home till her wedding...and, yes, the upcoming *wedding of the year*. I have lovingly dusted/swept in my sewing room and looked at my many UFOs but, right now, life is just too crowded with other things. And, when youngest DD moves home from her college this weekend, things will get even crazier for me.

HAHAHA!!!! I USED to quilt more---until I found this board last OCT. But on the plus side, I can type a little faster from being here :). Now, some days none & some days maybe a few hours...............Been wanting to do 4 hrs a day since the year is going "so fast" & I have alot of plans to make family stuff for next Christmas.

When I worked, about 4 hours a week. Now that I am retired, some weeks I sew 20-30 hours, and other weeks--not at all.

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 am so glad to hear someone else thinks about quilting at least as much as i do! I sometimes wonder if I'm obsessed with it & wonder if I should 'get a life" I don't quilt as much as I want to for some unknown reason but I do constantly think about it or am reading a magazine about quilting!!

I am lucky that I spend most of my days in my sewing room - I don't have to work right now and my hubby loves me doing this. Soon I hope to sell some stuff on Etsy because I have alot of stuff. It doesn't ever feel like work and time just flies when I am sewing.

So far this week 6-8 hrs a day, trying to get a quilt finished before our trip. It is not being the least bit cooperative. Spent an enchanting evening with Mr. Seam Ripper...boo hiss. The binding looked horrible. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

Because most of my quilts are hand applique and quilted about 2 hours each evening - if I have something to do on the machine then that is done on my days off so more often than not about 14 hours a week

Before I got Fibromyalgia, I spent 12 to 18 hours a day sewing quilts. Now I am lucky to spend 8 hours a month.
