If you had three extra hours every day...







...what would you do with them? Get more sleep? Finish your to-do list? Have fun? Write a novel? I really want to know.

I think I would read, at first. There are so many things I want to read, but it seems like I never get to it. And then I would quilt. Maybe thinking about this will help me re-work my priorities and jump out of my ruts.

Oh, I wish for this everyday, pretty sure I could finish all my projects, keep up on my paperwork and conquer the world!!

Mmmm.....one hour reading, one hour organising/decluttering/sorting, one hour creating. Well, that's what I'd do in theory, but in reality I'd probably get in front of my sewing machine and lose track of those 3 hours completely!!!!! :) Ciao

If I had 3 extra hours a day, and if I could, I would save them up for when I am lucky enough to get to see grandies overseas ....
well, maybe I would use a little of it for stitching!!!!!

Good fun question for us.... thanks

I would love an extra 3 hours on a Friday night, something to look forward to at the end of every week, to do something for myself (sewing, reading, a film, a long bath). Would I want it every day? That would just be too much! Ros

I'd want more that 3 extra hours...how about an extra month. I'm in denial Christmas is coming and I need more time. But yes, I love to read and have not read as much as I normally do for some reason or perhaps I'd organize my recipes.

Trudi said...

3 extra hours? I'd play catchup on my UFO's and stash! Maybe a little more quilting thrown in!

Staci said...

I am sure I would sew, because there is never enough time to sew. I think I would spend a bit of time doing things for myself, things I feel I'm wasting time on otherwise, like doing my nails now and then. I'd enjoy having more time to spend with my husband, too. He works a LOT of hours.

Mickierae said...

I think I would just be thankful for the extra time. At our age and both of us retired more time to look forward to with my husband would be a delight.

Oh, for 3 more hours....I would probably be exhausted by then, but I would love to have more knitting time....or more hand quilting time....or more time to enjoy more life!

lynnema said...

I would walk outside, or read, or listen to a book as I walk outside!

Elsa said...

3 more hours? overwhelming just to think about it! I'd probably spend a lot more time gardening, don't spend near enough time out there in the yard.

Nancy said...

wow...three more hours to do anything I want? intriguing...

I guess no kids? no hubby? no phones?
Someone else will cook? do laundry?

I would SEW!! and QUILT!! and READ!!

If I quit goofing off I'd already have a couple of hours easy :)
If I junked the computer I'd have three hours easy.

If I had three hours and actually used it, I'd love to audit a course in Archeology, learn to speak Latin fluently, restore an antique merry go round.

What I AM going to do with three hours today is make a Jenny Bowker mini free motion quilt. Brilliant idea to get past the walking foot syndrome.

If I could get three hours without having to do anything like else (is there a world like that), I'd head straight to my craft room. I haven't seen it in over a month and there are a lot of quilts calling my name right now.

Victoria said...

Good question. I'd like to think that I would spend it productively and wisely, but chances are I would most likely spend it in my usual ADD way and wind up still wishing for more time. :)

Nifty Quilts said...

Sew for two of the hours and sleep the other one. Good thing to think about!

Monica said...

I would be quilting baby!

Oxana said...

is it possible? may i have 6 extra hours? i would do my nordic walking, then learn a new language, then quilt and quilt and quilt...
bye...

Terriaw said...

Wow, this is a really great question. I think I would try to read more and spend more time outside. Then I would want to sew more too!

Three extra hours would destroy my excuses for not exercising, not cleaning and not cooking! Let's just stick with 24/day! LOL!

ArtGirl said...

hmmm, I would probably take a class. like a dressmaking class, and a cooking class, and a furniture making class. because with the three hours i could have time to drive a little farther to find something worthwhile.

but would EVERYONE have the extra 3 hours, or just me? because if EVERYone, then there would probably just be more demands on everyone else's time from everyone else. so in reality i WOULDn't have any extra time...

hmmm..

Annelies vdB said...

I would get use to it and needed moore.

JoAnne said...

I would spend the extra time trying to finish all the quilting projects I've started.

Karen, I love to read too, that's why I listen to audio books while I'm sewing. I always have a book I'm actually reading but also have an audio book I'm "reading". The library is one of my favorite places!

Sue said...

Three hours? That would be heaven, but I suspect I'd try to fill it with 6 hours of doing stuff. I do want to read more, quilt more, spend more time with friends and family, and of course, the first 3 hours should be spent pulling the weeds from the raspberry patch that I have put off all summer cause I didn't have time...

Jean said...

quilt of course because with that extra time, my house would surely be clean!

Two in One said...

My guilty but true answer would be "Play Lego Indiana Jones on my PC". Other days it would be piecing a quilt, or making a new piece of clothing.

M.Olive said...

Sew, read and put my stuff away.
Maybe I`ll write a book too =)

Vanilla said...

Three more hours???
Uninterrupted?
No answering the phone, the door, no to-do lists, etc.?
Oh, gosh... could I just sit and sew, and knit, and embroider, and paint and craft as if I were in another planet and unreacheable???
That would be heaven!
