I need sewing time, Please!!!

I find that working 5-6 days a week, just cuts into my sewing time. So I have made a deal with myself to sew on certain nights. I believe if I stick to my plan I will have time to finish project and start a few fun ones too.
I do not know how the ladies in my quilt guild work and have time to sew as many things as they do.
I can say I still am working on my Jan Patek applique quilt, working in stitches on my lunch hour. I see myself completed with it by 2015 at the rate I am going. Well that works for me!!

I can not believe 2010 is almost away and I will have a new year of quilting. UFO's here I come.....

Pink Pink Pink

I have not been very faithful with blogging lately. Well when have I!!
I admit I have not been sewing much either.
I am in the middle of a Turkey wall hanging, 3 quilts and I now have another quilt I will start
at my Friday night sew. I must say one thing that has me busy, is my Jan Patek applique quilt.
OK, Jan ....you are kicking my butt. Yes, you have challenged me.

Here is an update in a nutshell.

1) Moving, Stuff is everywhere.
2) Start up of a new Quilt Guild, not too much time but it all adds up
3) I am between homes and going out with friends is fun, ah the life of
    a wantabee party girls is crazy!
4) Donation and volunteer time is a good way to share yourself
5) Did I say moving, I can not believe how much fabric/ sewing stuff I have
    I need a sewing room, a big sewing room. Is it bad when you have more
    fabric boxs then clothing boxes and where do I store all my sewing machines.
6) Work, why does the 8-5 job take up most of my day
7) Friends, I love my friends, some day they will all have one of my quilts.
8) I have a new grand daughter "Matilda", I finally was able to take her the
    baby quilt I made her.
9) I have finished all quilts for my grand daughters. Boy they should be warm this
     winter. I love my girls, can't blog and play at the same time.
10) I am utilizing my lunch hour a few days a week to applique, who does that?

Maybe I just need to make sure I update my quilting once a week.
I promise to post picture soon

Happy quilting
