    You aren't alone, I'm an accounting manager that spends the whole day waiting to go home so I can play with my fabric.

    I work at home and prepare/review loan documents for mortgage companies and right now it is real slow so I can quilt or read the board upstairs in my office while I am waiting for some work to come in. Otherwise I think I would go crazy working at a regular office and not be able to keep my hands busy. :)

    I agree. Work just gets in the way of quilting time. I am off on disability currently. I wish I did not have to go back in January!

    When we bought our business two years ago I thought, right on I can do the bookwork for half the day and then quilt the rest of the day. That has not happened yet!!!

    Work sure does get in the way. I have a few friends that rotary cut fabric on their lunch hour. I've never done that before, I'd probally get food all over my fabric. LOL

    Can you call in with a case of Quilt-itis???? If you say it really, really fast, the boss might think it is a new virus going around :wink:

    You have lots of company!!!! I was just thinking today how I spend all day reminding myself that if I didn't have my job I couldn't support my habit!!!!!! (I really do love my job, but quilting is my addiction!)

    I spend my time at work thinking of sewing. I had the last two days off and DGD didn't have school because of the snow. Very little sewing for me. :-( :-( :-( I'm so sad.

    Like someone stated earlier life gets in the way for me, I am retired also and I am lucky to get out to the studio once a week.

    Talking about work taking up all your time. Maybe you all could quit your jobs and piece tops for your income. Kill two birds with one stone, LOL.

    I'm retired, but friends and family seem to think I am a sewing robot and keep flooding me with sewing/mending that "won't take much time." My piles of UFO's and quilt patterns I want to try keep crying out to me.
    I wish I could learn to say "No!" to these requests.

    I've given up trying to hand quilt and sew by machine in the sewing/2-siamese-cats room. When I do need to do hand work, sitting in my recliner, my 2-yr-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi sits on the floor staring at me and whining for me to get on the floor with him and play. He has even groaned when I come into the living room with a quilt as he knows that he's forbidden to share my lap with a quilt!
