OH, I hope I'm not too late......... Thanks for the opportunity on a great draw and have a very Merry Christmas.

I love to sew in the evening.


Any time of the day is a good time for me to sew, I find as I get older that I do not enjoy sewing in the evening when it is dark outside. No matter how many Ott lights I have in my sewing room, the lighting after the sun goes down is just not ideal for my oldish eyes.


I'm always best in the mornings-but not too early. Sometimes I get a second wind in late afternoon, but only if I've had a nap, ha-ha. But anytime of day is a good time to be in the sewing room, picking up fabric or daydreaming about future quilts. Thanks very much.

Laura Brown

I love the quilts they are beautiful! Can't wait to make the Hex quilt!!


I get the most done in the evening after Hubby settles down to snooze in front of the TV. But I sew at all hours of the day, for as many hours as I can manage and still keep the house from falling down around my ears!!!

Allison C Bayer

What a great book! I sew a little before dinner and certainly after until bed time. After standing at the longarm all day quilting for my sweet customers it feels oh so good to sit down and sew up my scraps. That is my goal for 2013, to make a SERIOUS dent in the scraps drawers and bins. Victoria's book could help me do that!! Thanks for the chance to win.


The best time of day for me to sew is nap time!!!


Great book! I sew mostly in the evenings.


The best time for me to sew is in the evening. I am not a morning person. I've tried to change but it just didn't work. I love how so many people can get up early and sew before work. It would be a fun way to start the day, but I can't do it. Thanks for a great giveaway. And I love her yellow pants!


At night, after dinner.

I like to piece early but I have been known to quilt way into the night if I get on a roll. I love Victoria's blog - thanks for the link to the yummy recipe - it looks delicious.
Regards from Western Canada,

Anytime is a good time to sew but Ido my best sewing on Sunday!

Millie Penuel

I would enjoy it the most in the early to mid morning but work keeps me away from my sewing room. Most of my sewing is after 9 PM at night.

Julie Shipp

I am a morning person so i love to get at it bright & early!

Carol L.

I usually try to sew mid afternoon. If I'm lucky I can start mid morning.


I like to quilt early in the morning. Getting up early in the morning, putting preparing a pot of tea and heading into the family room to sew is a real treat in my day--before all the other issues of the day intrude.


The best time of day for me to sew or quilt is when there is a lot of natural light in the room. Otherwise I have to set up my daylight lamp to see well enough, or put on my most powerful magnifying glasses, (or both)!

Tami Chaulk

The best time of the day for me to sew is about 9:00 or 10:00pm. I'm somewhat of a night owl and live to sleep in real late. My sewing machine is set up so I can look out the window, but the sun shines right in my eyes when sitting there in the morning.

Karyn Ashley Smith

As much as I would love to get up bright and early, I find that when I get the little ones to bed, I can usually get a couple solid hours in.... the only problem comes when I get so entranced I lose track of time, only to see it's 2 am and they will be up in just a few hours *YIKES!*

Angela Smith

I enjoy it most as soon as I get home from work, if DH is working local then after dinner. I have plenty of pieces that I think I could start one of these projects soon...

Kathryn Knox

Afternoon works best for me. Morning stiffness is gone and things work well.

Sharon South

I try to sew about 30 minutes every morning. It seems to calm me before driving to work.
