I finally have my room, my TV, my design wall, and my Netflex. I love it in here. But I find myself sewing a little - watching tv a little, sew a little more, then looking at some of my books. Check Facebook - check the Quilt Board.

All this makes my project take 5 times longer than it really could. Seems I am a slow sewer.

How about you?

I am slow, too. I think I have ADD. I cannot stick with anything, right now getting my new cabinets in the sewing room and getting it organized.

I am a slow sewer. And even slower now that I have found this website! LOL :)

Here it is. As it stands. I have to admit - I am a bit of a neat freak and I clean everything up every time I stop sewing. This is as messy as it gets. My husband call my need to have everthing put away "my crazy". :-)

It depends on what I am working on, and what programs/movies are on tv LOL

My family calls my sewing room "the black hole" - I go in and lose all track of time. Occasionally I'll have music or talk radio on, but most of the time I enjoy the quiet. I think I'm a slow sewer, because I rip and re-do so often. All my current projects can get done when they are done, so that makes me go a bit slower.
