How do you get so much done!

Well it’s easy… I get up super early so I can stitch with no distractions!!!! Always schedule time in your day to sew…and you will get those quilts done!

I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  1. I use to do that and traded it in on going to the gym! My goal is to get some sewing in after work 3 times a week and some sewing on the weekend. No kids at home anymore. I had to do something to improve my health.

    1. You go Jane!! A year ago I hit the gym 6-7am (goal was 5:30, lol) I’m trying to re-incorporate it back into my schedule, as I felt great when I did!!!

  2. I get up at 5:00 a.m. that allows me at least an hour to hour and a half to spend in my sewing studiot before I catch my bust to work at 7. Puts me in the right frame of mind to deal with all the stress in my work life.

  3. I’m guessing it’s like 4:30-5:00 AM, if it’s earlier than that I’m gonna puke! My hat goes off to you! One of these days, I’ll fall out of bed at that time. I do know what you mean though, on the rare occasions when I have, the peacefulness was delightful!

  4. what quilt are you working on, what i could see looks nice. I am sewing this weekend. It is suppose to rain this weekend so the horses get a couple of days off and so do I.

  5. Lisa do you always sew with pressure foot pressure turned clear up like that? And can I ask what brand sewing table that is and do you like it? It looks great, I get tired of my machine being up so high on a desk.Thanks!

  6. Ahhhhh, the exercise!! I live waaaaay out in the country, too far from any gym, its 20-25 miles to anywhere I need to go! I do try to walk 2 miles everyday that I can, usually 2-3 days a week now. Hopefully when I retire from work I will be able to gym a few days a week too! I love, love, love my Juki sewing machine! Its a workhorse for piecing, attaching binding, and a little bit of free motion on small quilts!

  7. Love, love, love my very early morning quilt time. I’m also an empty nester, but find I prefer getting up at o’dark early to enjoy the peacefulness of quilting in my cave!
