    I'm a software engineer that spends my life tied to my screens. I have to be honest this place is a guilty pleasure I sneak off to and read and now I'm answering ROFLMAO!! So addictive.

    Looks like I'm not the only guilty party. Get up at 5:00 and am on here for an hour...like to look at the main threads, then go to the tutorials, and then to the resources. Then I have to see the gossip on fb. Go to work and then during the day I am off and on every once in awhile. Too much but there's too much to look at also.

    I get on the Quiltboard first thing every morning while I have my coffee. When I sit down throughout the day to rest, I pick up the IPad and read some more. Finally, while we are watching tv at night, I keep the IPad in my lap and read the latest on Quiltboard. I' m obsessed! First, I read the pictures, then main, then tutorial and organization.

    I have to confess. I get to work at 8:00 and after logging into the office system, I get the internet up and running and QB is the second place I go after checking my emails. I leave it minimized all day and check it out throughout the day. I get rather bored most days so I spend an awful lot of time reading QB. I start usually with Main and move on to tutorials. I am still exploring the board as I am relatively new. It is so addicting. Then I go home in the evenings and will check again. I find myself spending more and more time on the board and taking away from my quilting. I need to finish my first quilt that I started last May!

    I fire up the computer and head to this board first thing every day at 4am with my first destination being the Main board, then Pictures, then In Search Of. I work at numerous locations and sometimes when I try to access the board I'll get a pop-up saying that the network sees "something suspicious" which means that for the rest of the day I'm wondering what is going on without me. At today's location the firewall didn't see anything suspicious so I've been on here for about an hour. What would I do without the board to teach me things, to provide inspiration, to add quilts to my to-do list and bring enjoyment to my day?
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    First thing in the morning with my coffee, and last thing at night before I go to bed. Main first then pictures, if I have time whatever else catches my eye. At least 2 hours a day, sometimes more. Love it!!

    I asked for and received an IPad last year for Christmas. I wanted it so I could sit in front of the TV at night and read the QB. I read the QB for about an hour in the morning with my coffee and newspaper, then for about two hours in the afternoon, and then all evening if I'm sitting in front of the TV.

    Some days I don't get on the computer at all. Those are my favorite days. Other days I check my email and always come to The QB and check the Main Section. I check the Tutes out, but doesn't seem to be new ones too often. Wish there were more. Pictures make me feel bad about my quilting, so I don't look at them too often. I check a few of the other sites, but I have a few buddies that I PM with and that's my all time favorite part. I love getting PMs every day!!

    Usually begin with pictures, then the main section. Because I have such an extensive stash, I no longer look at what is for sale......but used to!

    About an hour before bed to wind down my day or an hour shortly after work right when I get home to relax. This board has been a very good destressor to me
