    I understand your dilemma ... I belong to a number of quilt groups online besides this board and the time just zips by and I don't get anything done ... unless I don't turn on the computer all day long.

    warm quilt hugs, sue in CA

    Yeah, I think you should get another machine, or two, to keep Little Brother company. Being an only child is lonely :cry:

    Here's something that's helped me a bit. Not sure it's on a PC, but on my Macbook, under Edit there is a Speech function. Takes getting used to the computer voice, and how it reads a screen, but it lets me do a bit of sewing and still check on websites. I also use the speech feature in Adobe to read files to me. Not a perfect solution, but it helps.

    I love to quilt, but I also love to read all the comments on this site. But how am I supposed to sew anything when I am addicted to this place? I do not forsee my husband nor my two little doggies doing any quilting for me at this point in my life. And it sure isn't going to do it by itself. My sewing machine is sitting on the top landing of the stairs in its carrying case untouched, unloved since Tuesday when I went to my little sewing group. Today is Friday. And from where I sit here reading all thes posts, occasionally my head will turn and I can see it just sitting there crying to come out of its case. Do you all realize how sad that is for a sewing machine? The poor thing is so cold. It doesn't even have a quilt to cover up with. So I suppose I will get off here and at least go put it on my sewing table and plug it in and warm it up a little before my little Brother catches a cold and has to go to the Sewing Machine Hospital. And Heaven forbid, from my 3 day neglect that its little motor heart hasn't been broken forever. :)
    Set it up beside your computer so you can take "breaks" from sewing to check out us. I have a computer in the basement along with my sewing machines.

    Turn the computer off each time you quit to do anything. That keeps me from just going on so easily. My son says that is actually good for the computer too. Cleans things up when it reboots. Who knows?
