    I realized today, as I was cleaning the house, that I could make more quilts if I didn't clean, cook, do laundry, make the bed, take a shower, or go on-line to check the QB.

    Some days there just isn't enough time.

    Yes work kills it, I go thru the QB everyday, get excited, want to work on something, get home tired, and get nothing done.

    I think we all know that feeling. I think our familys may have some objection or our homes will look like some of those on the show Clean House.

    So true! Isn't it fun that we will never runout of things to do? Quilts to quilt, fabric to buy, QB to read, dreams to dream......

    When I was working on my charity quilts my family would just walk around the mess but my DD's boyfriend would come over and pick up the livingroom for me. He is such a sweety!!

    Several months ago, Sharon Schamber was a guest speaker at our guild. She said that it is in her prenuptial agreement that she doesn't HAVE to cook, clean, do laundry, etc.! SERIOUSLY!

    And her husband AGREED to it. She pointed out that you can put ANYTHING in a pre-nup.

    She added that she CAN do those things if she wants to, but it is not required of her.

    From Kathryn Kistner in Texas, who's now saying,
    "Dang! Too bad **I** didn't think of it!" LOLOLOL!

    Sounds like me. I know better to try and quilt when I am tired. I almost cut my finger off doing that once.

    This is great, kinda how I feel and why I refused to get married again. If my BF doesn't like it he can either do it himself or move, LOL.

    An amish woman who lives nearby quilted a quilt for me. She got it done in two weeks. After leaving her house, I said to my friend, "you know, I would probably be able to quilt a quilt in 2 weeks too if I didn't have electricity! I waste so much time watching tv and on my computer!!" The amish are so productive. But I sure would hate to give up my modern conveniences, especially my dishwasher! I just need to discipline myself with tv and computer games!!!

    Years ago I lived with a roommate and she and I lamented to my mother that we could really use a wife. With both of us working full-time and other commitments we wanted someone to handle housework, manage the checkbook, etc.

    Now that I'm older and wiser (ha) a friend of mine and I were lamenting the other day about all the things we could get done if it weren't for our pesky jobs. I realized that I like my jobs and would rather have the time I spend on food (shop/decide what to eat/cook/eat) and hygiene (cleaning me, house, and clothes) to do more fun/rewarding things! But now I don't ask for a wife (I am one!) I wish for a housekeeper ;-)

    I have a small Janome (43. bucks from Amazon new) that I keep at work (it is only 5 lbs) under my desk to use on my hour long lunch. I quilt with 3 others from work and anyone can use it to piece etc. It only has 1 speed, but it works great. We use an empty conference room which is great for spreading out fabric to cut (another girl has a mat, ruler, and rotary cutter). It always us to have fun, talk, and get some sewing done. Sometimes it is clothes or costumes for kids or mending etc. It is really nice to layout colors and patterns and ask for others advice.
