Okay between the time you spend cleaning the house and taking care of family, how much time do you average on quilting?

Someone cleans my house, family takes care of themselves (only hubby and me), quilt whenever I want to.

Well quilting is my "job". SO I spend quite a bit of time quilting. I am also a full-Time Student at WSU ( GO COUGS!!!), A wife and Mother of 6.
So I actually pay someone to come in and clean my house a couple hours a week as I can't keep up on everything myself.

When things go according to plan, between 7:30 and 9:30 most evenings. More in the summer (we homeschool, so the school year is more busy for me).

DH and I share the load, and some days I never leave the sewing room unless it is to eat. Depends on my mood. That is one of the joys of retirement.

I am retired also. It helps to create something beautiful and useful at the same time.

Usually in the evenings BUT right now we have a grandaughter due in Dec and I have been quilting most of the afternoon too. Between piecing and applique my fingers are working to the bone ! Labor of Love ! Sunbonnet Sue is ready to be handquilted. I will post as soon as I can. Then the animal applique is a real busy one -- the hardest I have done so I am working diligently to be completed. I also am having surgery second week of Nov. so I must be done. Baby shower weekend before Thanksgiving. busy busy busy ~~

I work full time, single mom of three teens.. so I hope to get at least two or three evenings of quilting in, I can usually squeeze in 2-3 hours on those evenings. On the weekends, it just depends on what is happening.. sometimes I can have the whole day, and sometimes I dont sew a bit. I am pretty lucky as my girls are very good about helping around the house, and doing their own laundry. So, other than dishes and dinner, I only really "clean" once on the weekend.

Children are grown so I quilt as often as I can.
