    I quilt/sew by the project. I'll finish a quilt and not touch another for months. Now if I could only quit buying fabric in between!

    [quote=Beth Dishong]I am home on permanent disability so I do get to sew everyday. I would lose my mind if I couldn't sew everyday. I use the machine or work on a project I have that I need to sew by hand. There were many, many years that I worked outside the home and couldn't sew. I hate that I am unable to work any longer but, I love that I can now sew when I want.[/quote Same here, can no longer drive, so spend a lot of time at home sewing.

    I was working two jobs. Sewing? Once a month! last week I quit my full time job and was excited about being able to sew more. Now that I am not going to be working, my family has other plans for me; watching baby, taking MIL to Dr.'s, etc.

    Retired now. Want to have time to sew all day, but too many things to do. Errands to run, appts., housework. And, soon yard work. Usually, 3 times a week I get in my sewing rm. Sometimes, only 15 min. at a time. Guess, this is call retirement. :lol:

    No, you are not the only one that does not sew every day. If I am lucky I sew once a week. I work full time. I get home, cook supper and prepare for work the next day. The weekend is when I quilt, plan and sew.

    I do not sew everyday - even I need a day of rest.

    No, I don't sew every day. First, I have to be in the mood to get everything out to begin to sew; and second, I do have another life.

    I work six days then off seven. The seven that I am off I do sew everyday, but on the days I work, I don't get to sew at all.

    I would love to sew everyday. I am retired but I still cannot find the time. Although, I signed up for 15 minutes of play and I have been sewing at least for a few minutes each day.

    I get up at 4:30 every morning for my "real" job. Then work till 2, do work for job #2, pick up my daughter, make dinner, grade my kids papers (I teach high school as Job #1), go to the gym, then try to sew. Otherwise I really try to sew on weekends.

    I went for 29 years without sewing when I worked. Even though I'm retired now I don't sew every day. I feel busier now than when I was working!

    I can't sew everyday. I don't think I would if I could. I sew at least three times a week.

    I don't sew everyday. There are times I don't want to get away from my machine and quilting, then other times, like this past week, I did not go near my machine.
