    Nope, I work every weekend and during the week two days on the evening shift, the only two days I have off is wednesday and friday. I try to sew on those two days b/c I am in the middle of a project. But some of those days I just want to do nothing, and I do nothing. Life is to short. Quilting is for enjoyment not obligation. If I make myself do something when I don't want to, I am afraid that I will not want to do it anymore b/c I have taken the enjoyment out of it.

    I do not sew every day only when the mood strikes me, if I had to do it every day I might not enjoy it as much. That is just me though others enjoy every day.

    I don't sew every day! I just don't have the time or sometimes the energy

    I don't work and I sew every single day. It keeps me sane.

    No, you aren't alone. I wish I could sew every day, but I just don't have the time. When I sit down to sew, it seems 3 or 4 hours fly by without me being aware. I try to sew 2-4 times a week, but even that is hard.

    I try to do something in my quilt room everyday...not always using the sewing machine. Sometimes it is just cutting scraps or looking through/organizing fabric, or tracing pieces for an applique. Just something to keep myself happy!

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to sew in over a month..., shame on me. But I have other things pulling me as well. I made a crocheted baby camo outfit for my latest grandson to come home in---but it was too small!!!

    I sew everyday now that I am retired. THere was no time to do this when you have a family and work full or part time. Don't feel bad about not sewing everyday. A time will come when you can.

    I don't sew every day either unfortunately - there's other things I need to tend to but wish I could sew more often. Am going to try to work on a tote bag this evening while I watch a couple of good programs on PBS.

    At the moment I can't even do it once a month. It's a bit frustrating. I never sew every day unless I'm making something to a deadline

    Not every day! Sometimes, not even every week.

    I made a resolution to do something creative everyday :!: I count going to the library, or sewing or maybe cutting out the squares for a quilt. I really try to sew something everyday. I feel much better about things in general if I sew, especially if it is something for me :lol: :lol:

    I go by spurts, sometimes I am pretty good about spending time quilting and lately I have been very lax.

    You really are not the only one. I do sew in spurts and sometimes other activities get in the way. But it is an objective to try to sew.......

    I don't sew everyday. I work fulltime and watch my 2yo gd 3 afternoons after I get off work. Sewing and 2 year olds do not mix.

    like some others on the board, I have to be in the mood to sew, even tho I am home all the time. If I sew when I'm not in the mood, I just make one mistake after another. I could never do it as a business.
