I've gone through some of the posts and just wanted to tell you all: it felt as familiy talking.

Stitching Are you sure that only two hours a day would be sufficient to stitch all you have in store now ? And how to find the time to stitch all the wonderful things that you happen to see on the site ? It is a never ending story. I guess that this is the main symtom of the stitching addiction.

The two hours thing would be just to do anything, not just stitching: even to take a shower sometimes it seems to be hard!
Addiction? In my case it may be worse, I have so many charts it may take another life to complete!
Buona sera a te!

I am afraid that we all ask ourselves when we will have two hours, just for us, to stitch !!!! Always something interfering at the last moment : a friend who needs help for translations, fruits that are calling you from the kitchen "we would be so happy to be changed in a pie or a tasty marmelade",..... We should study the case. Does anyome can give us a tip to get at least two hours free for stitching ? Suggestions are welcome

Hi! Welcome to you and the other new members. It is so fun to talk to stitchers in other countries and to see that we all share the same "addiction." If anyone on here figures out how to get that extra 2 hours, please share with the rest of us! I don't have anyone asking for translations or have no idea how to turn fruit into marmelade (I'm impressed with your abilities for both), but have plenty of more boring tasks that need to be done (especially work...and more work...). Your life sounds much more interesting than mine!
Happy stitching!

More interesting ? Well, my grand mother used to say that the soup always tastes better in the neighbour's plate. Tranlation can be a real headacke (specially when you mix up the different languages lol), preparing marmelade is the best way to exercise physically without paying fitness lessons in an expensive fitness center !!!! A french magazine for women had calculated, a few years ago, how much calories you spend depending on the house tasks you are doing ( cleaning the dust, changing the bed sheets, cleaning the windows, etc.....) In the end, they wanted to prove housewives that they don't need to give extra money out : excercising can be done every day at home.AND IF SOMEONE DARES TO SAY THAT THE HOUSE WORK IS NOT A REAL WORK, I WILL EXPLODE !!!!!!!
Well : how to find these two hours : during the lunch break and short breaks in the morning and afternoon, while watching TV, taking the good excuse of the hair that needs to dry and you cannot move, because it is very uncomfortable (or any other reason), in the kitchen, when you are keeping an eye on the stew, or waiting that the vegetables have finished to cook in the steamer......
Who has other suggestions ? Ladies, we have here an unique opportunity to make a worldwide brainstorm on that utmost important topic : strategies to gain these two hours a day JUST FOR US AND OUR STITCHING

I could say cook less but I already don't do much of that. (I'm actually trying to cook more for my family and dinner is on the stove while I'm typing this:). I could also say exercise, but I currently don't do that either and am trying to do more of that. (Much is needed in the way of self-improvement). So, alternatively, I'm trying to figure out a way to not have to work so I can stitch more. I will let you know when I figure that one out Laughing
I have been stitching more lately, however, and I am miraculously feeling more energized and happy when I get to stitch Idea I have explained to my DH that is the trick--I get to stitch more and I'm much happier to be around. I really think it is true.

Well... see what we can do for the cooking. For example, I prepare half o fmeals in advance. Let me explain : today, we had pork meat with green cabage, onions and potatoes. While this was gently cooking in the pan (and did not need anything special), I prepared the next meal : a vegetalble stew that will cook alone in the oven (no need to spend my time watching what is going on in the pan or in the oven). I peel, slice the vegetables, put them in a glass form, add fat meat in the middle and hop ! in the back oven at mid temperature (some 160C) during 1 hour and a half. When the pork with cabage is ready for lunch, I switch off the oven. the next day, I just need to prepare the mixed salad (tomatoes, onions, baby spinach leaves, with olive oil, balsamic vinegar for dressing). It means that the meal can be prepared in les than two hours. There you have a little bit of time for you to stitch. As for exercise : use the house cleaning. This is the best way to make it in a funny mood and the money saved because you don't go to fitness center, you can use it for stitching stuff. TV is of course, the best alibi : you do not want to sleep in the armchaire, so you want to keep your hands busy.
AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT : STITCHING MAKES US HAPPY AND IN THE END, THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS FROM OUR HAPPY MOOD Laughing Stitching
