Random Afternoon Question

Today's question came from Mireille during one of our email chats:

I was wondering if everybody has the problem that in the morning they have lots of sewing work in their mind but in the evening they do nothing cause of different excuses. I have often that problem :-)

I go through stages. There are times, like now, when I'm planning for next year, where stitching is constantly on my mind. I'm mentally sorting and resorting over and over without putting anything down. In a few days here, I'll probably have most of the plans solidified.

More often than not, if I'm thinking about stitching during the day, I'm doing just that at night. The only thing that would stop me is if I'm exhausted after work and just can't get up the energy to stitch.

I can honestly say I never have that problem!
Once the boys are both snuggled in bed it's my stitching time and I'm always eager to get going.
The only slight problem I have is if I'm rotating projects and want to carry on with the previous night's work and not pick up a different project.

I have just the opposite problem - always the drive to stitch, which is my excuse for not doing the 100 other things on my list.
Grading? too tired.
Trim Dana's nails? I'd have to get on the floor.
Laundry? Not really enough for a whole load.
Stitching? Let's light this candle! Yee haw!

I always have the million things I wish I could be stitching on in my head. Sometimes it keeps me from enjoying the piece I have to stitch on. So I try to just relax and not think too hard haha.

I am always thinking about stitching even when I'm stitching.

I think about stitching all the time, but me getting up early and doing something would cause the world to tilt off it's axis, so why disturb the balance of nature? Plus, it would make me a stark-raving grumpy bear...I don't "do" mornings, even if my mornings are 1 pm. When I get home from work (anywhere from 12 to 4 am), I'm bouncing off the walls anyway with tons of pent-up energy, that is my stitch time.

humm... not really :p I'm always eager to craft something and always find some time in my day to do it ;) hehehe

Lol, I do that all the time! But if I work that day, oftentimes I'm too tired at night then. But since I'm known to sleep in on my days off I take my project and work on it early a.m. when they *think* I'm sleeping & nobody dares *wake* me lol

Nope! I do not have that problem. I stitch every morning while having my coffee before going to work. Sometimes I stitch in the evenings also...

Thanky you Joyce for posting my question.
I have that problem because I have to begin at work at 6am and have to leave my bed at 5am. When I have finished working I can't go to sleep a bit because I have to go to pick up my DD at school. When she is at home I cann't do any stitchwork because she is very very busy.
And when she goes to sleep, I am completely without energy :-)
because the nights she isn't sleeping very well.

I often have the best of intentions in the daytime but when the evening rolls around I can't get up the umph to do it. Most evenings I'm happy to sit and stitch but not do finishing. I find that if I want to do some finishing, I have to do it as soon as I get up and going in the morning.

Good luck finding your motivation!

Mmm sounds like me sometimes! I tend to get distracted and busy with other stuff a lot. I think it's also because I don't have a very good stitchy place :( Although yesterday, I finished my hubby's stocking and started my mom's ornie aaannnnddd kitted Jane Philpott! So sometimes I'm very organized!!

I'm more of a daytime stitcher. I think about it all day long at work, but by the time I get home and settle down, I don't feel like stitching, unless its a project I'm really enjoying. I'm wierd with my stitching. Once I finish a project, I tend to take a break. I'll wait a week or two before starting a new project or picking up an old one.
