What time of day is most productive for you? I'm not particularly productive in the mornings. I do exercise every day but I don't even eat breakfast until 10. Then I will do computer stuff and I don't get motivated to make/sew/due until about 2. But after 2, I'm on fire until about 10 pm.
I've become my father who was an incredible night owl.
Yesterday afternoon I made some good progress on my weekend goals.
I got the little t-shirts tied/stamped and ready to dye this weekend. These are for a birthday gift for next weekend. One will be a spiral, the one with the little tied nub is a fish and I'm doing color magnet with another fish theme. Hopefully he will like them.
Then I got started cutting out more veterans quilt kits. This is a panel that my friend bought for me. It's almost as wide as the quilts we make so it's getting 3" stripes above and below. This one will sew together in a couple of hours.
I had enough batik left over to cut out 2 HST quilts with 6: HST blocks. Both are in blue and cream batiks.
Here's what's left of all of that 30+ yards of batiks that I bought several months ago. These leftovers might become placemats.
When I get back from sewing today I'll get started cutting into those 2 piles in back. That's all that's left of my patriotic fabric. I'm so glad because as of now I have EIGHTEEN kits cut out. That should keep my busy for the next year.
I will not be buying more patriotic fabric for a while.

I have the same schedule you do in the winter but in the summer I'm outside all day so I only spend a couple of hours at the most on sewing/quilting. Of course I love all that patriotic batik fabric! I am amazed at how many kits you made in one day!!!

in the summer I do the most in the afternoon in the sewing room when it is too hot for me outside - evening too. In the winter it varies

I am a bit surprised. For some reason I thought you were an "up early and get to work" type.

Morning is the best for me. I am up at 5:30 cause the dog thinks that is the time to get up.... by 10 pm I can not even keep my eyes open

Hold on! You will have another patriotic panel coming your way. At the estate sale I went to they had a few quilt kits. Nothing too great, but I bought a couple for the fabric. One Had a patriotic panel that I thought you might be able to use. It will be in the mail to you today!
