    I work full time and have medical issues, so I do what I can when I can. I enjoy it, I get a lot more out of an hour of sewing than an hour of surfing the net, but sometimes I just physically can't.

    Sorry to dissapoint you but I do not sew every day. I'm too busy. Live in a beautiful retirement home and don't have the time, Bingo 2 nights a week, Pinochle 1 night a week, Sew & Sew club 1 afternoon a week, sign up for food delivery 1 morning a week. exercise one morning a week, shopping, straightening and cleaning house, Laundry and playing on the Board every day is my routine. I sew when I get a "minute"

    I will tell you that I am probably the exception as I do sew every day as my full time job does require it. I sell sewing machines for one of the leaders in the industry. It is really funny because my children laugh as I see sewing machines on programs I will call out the make and model most of the time.
    Obviously I love to sew and have found a way of doing it full time and pay the bills.

    No, I don't sew everyday, only when I have the time. Sometimes I go in spurts where I do have time to do several days in a row, then several days with nothing sewed. Now that I have a newborn baby my sewing time is even more limited, LOL.

    I wish I could everyday. It's usually in spurts. I'll get involved in a project and work on it until all the other parts of my life (job, cooking, cleaning, husband) start to need attention. Then I spend just enough time to placate everyone and get back to the machine.

    I am retired, but never seem to have the time to sew every day. However; on the days that I do my washing, which is about four days a week, when I put the first load in, I go to my sewing room and quilt for an hour, or two. Then, I load the dryer, and back to my sewing room for another hour, or two. I seem to get more done using that schedule. Have to admit, when I look at the time, I often find that two hours have developed into three. Works for me. Eileen

    I don't get to sew every day. Actually I never have gotten to sew every day. Now however, with the house on the market, I have to try to keep things in somewhat of an order so you can see that the room has 4 walls and a floor when someone comes to look at it.

    I would to love to sew more, but sadly life gets in the way. But then, I like my life so it is not the hardship it could be.

    Don't work, (disabled) but between neighbor lady, my mom, and husband, I too, have to be in the mood and not upset husband when I sew!! :thumbdown:

    Hmmmm - I thought when I retired I would have plenty of time for quilting! Hah!! between picking up the gkids and having them here (depending on Mom's schedules), housework, yardwork, activities with the gkids etc, etc, But ya know, I love every minute. So I get to my sewing when I get a chance.

    I also have serious back issues. I try to pace my sewing, cutting, standing time. I give myself a changing time with each area of sewing that I do.
    So if I am sewing once I finish an alloted amount of the project I get away from the machine and go to another area of my sewing room and work on something else for an alloted amount of time.
    Seems to help, the trick is to change position often enough that the back does not know it is getting a work out!

    I would love to quilt everyday, but the real world of a j-o-b interferes. :) I also have to be in the mood, but I think that goes along with having the job.

    I know what you mean...I'm so jealous of all these people! I don't have the time or budget for sewing everyday.

    Hi Challys, Most of my sewing/quilting is done on Tuesday from 2 pm to 8:30 pm at Quilt class but once-in-awhile I will set up my stuff at home if I NEED to finish a project right a way! I am hoping I can set up my sewing room before summer hits this year! Pray I can do it.

    I sew almost every day. If not sewing designing, or looking for unique fabrics. I do hand piecing in the evenings while I watch TV. I have a very intense work schedule and sewing relaxes me.
