    And it was so simple. Why didn't I think of this before?

    I don't have a designated sewing space so I sew at my dining room table and sit in a hard wooden chair. Or at least I used to.

    My computer is in another room and I love to sit here and looks at quilt pictures all day long instead of making my own. The other day I decided to take my nice comfy computer chair to the dining room to sew. Now the hard chair is at my computer and I just can't sit here for too long anymore. I've made seven table runners this week except for the binding. As Charlie Sheen would say - "Winning!"

    :thumbup: Way to go! Would like to see your table runners. What design were you using? I need to get started on Easter table runners; even tho Easter comes late this year, time always gets away from me :wink:

    it always helps to be comfortable. It makes it more fun to get projects done. Are you going to share photos?

    I use a padded roll around stool, like you find in Dr. offices. Don't buy one labeled as that, just take the back off a padded air lift desk chair. Walmart had very good quality padded desk chairs at the start of school for $60 and later marked down to $25. Great colors too and Staples didn't have any color but black for twice the price and less padding in the seat.

    I will be sharing pictures of the table runners soon. I want to get the binding done first.

    As for the pattern I'm using.... just sewing squares together in rows using Moda charm packs. I needed something stress free. LOL

    Another way to do more quilting is not cook or clean (LOL).
    Seriously, when I cook, I try to make enough for 2 meals. That gives me more time to quilt.

    Or the crockpot which can hold enough for several meals to head for the freezer. I use mine a lot!

    I bought an office chair for sewing but sit on a hard chair at the computer (but I'm still on here too much!).

    My sewing area is right next to my computer area, so I just slide my comfy computer chair back and forth. I raise the seat height for the computer and lower it to sew. Works great!

    This is the only way, in my book, to get any quilting time without the "guilty time" of thinking I am neglecting my family......of course, I do have teenagers that know how to cook...so that helps too!!! :thumbup: :lol:

    I kinda did the same thing. I knew I could set in my secretary
    chair all day without backaches. It suddenly dawned on me
    that one would work at the machine. Love it, I can just
    wheel to the side to press, etc. Only paid$20 for it years
    and years ago. Good investment.
