    4 Minutes…. Must be after I debate with myself what to do…. rip the house apart looking for the supplies…cleaning a spot off… feeding the cats… and finally making a cup of coffee… I will try harder… LOL… I do like the idea but must be at least 30 minutes to get the needle threaded, the hoop on or the glue to dry….. Love your articles…..

    Dear Mark,

    4 MINUTES?!? How about 4 HOURS!! I retire to my sewing room in the evening after dinner, start slicing fabric into strips and squares and have a ball! Every once in a while I step out into the living room to show my husband the work in progress and get his opinion (always a rave) and retreat to “work” (play, really) some more. At 11 PM I stop for the night, vacuum up all the thread bunnies, take a shower and then sleep the sleep of the quilting rightious.

    This week I pieced 3 quilt tops for the foster children of Broward County…there’s LOTS more to come. I have a 25+ years stash and, now retired, plenty of time to use it. It also helps control my weight; you can’t snack and quilt at the same time!!

    Love and best blessings to you. Victoria

    Yeh Victoria!! I’m with you…retirement has allowed my creative flood gates to open. No more squeezing in time before and after work…we are amongst the blessed. Thanks Mark for giving us permission…shutting off the “supposed to” and “should” messages.

    I worked on a quilt top this morning for an hour, then spent time this afternoon splitting and moving hostas around in my gardens! It’s gorgeous outside!

    Thanks Mark. I love the concept too – and most days I do 4 minutes plus. After supper I sit with my hubby while the news is on and and work on my hand applique. Then when he sticks his nose in his book I go to my sewing room and only come out to show off my handiwork. I make sure he always had lots of library books!
