    I'm just wondering if I am absolutely the only person on this board that doesn't sew every single day? I sew a couple of days a week, but so many seem to indicate if they have a day without sewing, it is quite an event!

    I work full time so like you I only get to sew a few times a week. But that's ok with me. I know I have to be in the mood to sew. Guess I haven't gotten bitten by the same quilt bug yet.

    Many days I only get to wave to the sewing machine as I am rushing by it. I do not get to sew everyday.

    I don't sew every day even though I'm at home. Some days there is too much going on with the kids - some days my back isn't up to sitting at the machine or leaning over a table cutting and basting. I wish I got more sewing done, especially when I see all that some others are doing. But - I can only do the best I can, and admire the work of others!

    I sew when I am in the mood or when I have time.

    You're not the only one. I work part time outside the home and as much as I can I work on my longarm business, and inbetween -- I quilt!

    I would love to sew every day, but my work hours just increased, so usually no energy at night. But I'm very thankful that I have a job that needs me so much - especially in the economic times we're in.

    That's why I love to read QB in the evenings, it takes much less energy than actually sewing.

    I can't sew every day either; my paying job cuts into my fun-time WAY too much!

    I wish I could sew every day!!!! Work and family and life seem to get in the way. I come home from work pretty tired and many times I just am too tired to sew!

    I don't "sew" every day. But I do something related to it every day. Maybe planning my next project, cutting pieces, pinning a quilt, looking at magazines.

    i usually sew every day, but hit "slumps" every once in a while. i haven't sewn much at all for the past two weeks. i look at the machine. i walk around the space trying to talk myself into working on something, and then i wander off again. i'm not worried. it will pass.

    quilting should be fun. so, when you don't have time or don't feel the urge, no sweat. it'll be there waiting when you're ready. :-)

    I don't sew even close to every day. Too busy with part time job and kids! I wish I could sew more.

    It comes and goes. I get into little periods where I want to sew all day everyday, and just keep pumping out the projects. It passes, then I might not use the machine for a few months. I NEVER stop looking at fabric!

    I do not sew every day but I have started a regular habit just lately of always having some hand piecing ready to do the the moment I sit down for the evening in front of telly as DH likes me to watch the old movies with him and I feel if I am doing something with my hands I am not wasting time!! I have made several blocks this way for a Ohio Star quilt I am making out of old shirts, I am well pleased with how it is going to look and to think it has all been done just in the evenings sitting in front of TV!!
    It really goes to prove that if you stick at something you will get there in the end!
