I tend to be pretty organized (time wise) most of the time & know what activities i need breaks from after 45 minutes & what i can do for 2 hours before i should stop for a bit. ... taking a break right now-

    This is about the same thing I do. I don't have a clock in my sewing room but use the timer on my cell. Works for me.

    The clock in my sewing room has not been set since the power went out in a summer storm 2 years ago. My husband yells across the house whenthe 5:00 news comes on.

    Yes, I have 2 wall clocks in my sewing room but they may need to have the batteries changed or maybe they aren't set to the right time, I think they were set correctly when I set my room up 4 years ago! I am not a clock/watch watcher.

    I don't have a clock in my sewing room but feel I need to get one. The day just gets away from me and I'm late starting supper some time.

    I do not have a clock in my sewing room. I do wear a watch but when I am sewing I rearely look at it. I know I need to move and change activities about every 45 minutes to give my arthritis attention. My sewing room is llike the casinos--timeless. Thankfully I'm retired so I don't have to run my life by the clock anymore. I love it when I am in that "Zone" in my sewing room!

    I do because I teach sewing and if I didn't have the clock we would keep sewing past the time for the student to go, not so much a problem for me as the student who is trying to fit several trips together sometimes.

    My machine tells me the time - but only pay attention to it when I want to watch a favorite program. I'm constantly amazed at how fast the day goes when I'm doing something so fun!

    I don't have a clock in my outdoor work area & yesterday I had to do a lot of work in the garden as we're staking our tomato plants which are really getting big. While my husband was making metal clips to hold the stakes up, I sandwiched a quilt, then went back & worked until I hurt too bad to do any more. I still have a few boxes to do, but most are done & today was too cold. When we got hungry, I went after supper.

    Oh my yes I have a clock.. in fact I have 3 in my sewing room that I can think of.. I'm one of those people who likes to know what time it is.. sort of.. I don't want to have to hunt to see the time.. I just want to glance up and see if it's nearly something.. like nearly 1 or almost half past.. I don't care for digital clocks that give the precise minute.. I just want to know 'about' what time it is, therefore I have analog clocks, except for the clock radio. I have several clocks in every room of my house.. Time change is an ordeal here! haha....

    One time I got wrapped up in my sewing and completely forgot that my neighbor was expecting me for lunch that day. I remembered when I got hungry about 2 hours too late. That was more than 30 years ago and I still feel guilty for standing her up like that! Having a clock in the room doesn't help me because I don't think to look at it. I have to set a noisy timer if I need to keep any sort of appointment.

    Well put, that's when I move on to something else. Some days hours, some days only a few minutes and I'm done, only to come back when the urge overtakes me.

    I aspend hours in my sewing room. Do have a clock and now the time is right with day light savings time. change Really don't use it unless I'm on my Pilates machine and want to do 20 minutes.

    my machine has a clock with a timer on it. Don't use it. My time is my own.
