Quilters, Turn the Clocks Ahead Tonight for Daylight Saving Time

Tonight we turn our clocks ahead…and get up an hour earlier in the morning.  I enjoy the longer evenings of daylight and somehow find I get so much more done.  Do you find this allows you more time for quilting, or do you find the darker winter evenings more condusive to quilting.

However, until the year approaches its longest day, in June, our mornings remain darker.  If we’re earlier risers, we’ll find it dark or dawn.  But…we may have the glorious adventure of watching the sunrise rather than having it fully daylight when we get up.

Do you find Daylight Savings Time affecting your schedule and lifestyle?

For further information about Daylight Saving Time…it’s history and facts and figures:
