  1. I probably sew more in winter than in summer. Maybe averages out to 5-6 hours a week. Doesn'tmake me sound like much of a quilter but I really love it!

  3. I used to sew all the time but took a break when my youngest were really little. Since the beginning of the year I have started up again. I was sewing on average 1-2 hours a day but since breaking my finger 6 weeks ago, I have had to quit altogether... can't wait to see the specialist next week...hoping I can pick up where I left off!!
    Congrats on the 50+ followers and thanks for this great giveaway!!

  6. You now have 53 followers :) I sew mostly on the weekends about 4 hours a day. Lately I have been making hexagons by English Paper piecing while I ride the train to work, so that is about 1 1/2 hours more each day.

  32. Another NEW follower for you! Depending on what I'm up to I sew about 5-8 hours a week (more if I'm working on a commission or gift, less if it's just "hobby" sewing). But once in a great while I take a day off work and just sew all day. That's so much fun.

  33. I am a new follower. The number of hours I sew really varies from week to week. I have decided to aim for 24 hours a week, and make sure that I give myself at least that much time.

  35. I'm a new follower! I love your blog! I only get a chance to sew a couple hours a week, but I'm hoping I can get more time to sew when my schedule lightens up soon!

  36. Following now. I don't get to sew on a regular basis. So when I do sew I make small quick things and I'd say about 3 hours total.

  37. I just stumble across your blog while searching for Vintage Modern fabric! I sew all day everyday. If I'm not sewing with my sewing machine I hand sewing. Thanks for the opportunity for a little online fun.

  47. I'm a new follower! My weekly sewing time is not very consistent. It could be anywhere between 0 - many, many hours... lol! Lately I've been doing a lot of cross stitching instead of sewing but my sewing pile is getting pretty big! ;)
