    How often do you check the board?

    I don't work outside the home, so I check several times a day. First time is with my morning coffee, last time, usually, after supper.

    I also don't work outside the home. I check these boards TOO many time.

    I'm a constant board watcher. It's generally up all day every day. I stop by whenever and click "what's new".

    Me too. I'm interested in what is going on, so I'm on here several hours a day.

    All depends on the day. If I work (12 hr days), then only in the morning. I'm usually exhausted by the time I get home. If I don't work, then I check the board way too many times to mention. I absolutely LOVE it though! Great place to get ideas and support when needed.
    Go forth and sew!

    I am on a work furlough; that's what my boss calls it; right now for the next three weeks so I am checking in all day and working on a lot of UFOs.

    I check in a few times a day. And I work a full-time job. So if my boss asks, you never saw me!

    I'm not working any more either, for money that is. I check several times a day. Love to see what everyone is up to.

    I don't work outside the home, and as my DH says if I got paid for being on the board I'd be rich. LOL I do other things besides look at the board, but I do check a lot!!!!!
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    Once a day in the evenings. It's a good way to wind down before bed.

    Lots more checking on the weekends! :-)

    I go in spurts. Depends on the mood and even the weather. Sometimes 6+ times a day and other times, I go for the better part of the week without checking in. My sewing habits are very similar too. Does that make me an all or nothing kind of girl?

    I check just about every time I sit down in my chair. (My laptop is next to my chair on rolling computer table.)

    Love this board - usually check first thing in the A.M. & then a few times during the day. Don't want to miss anything important !!! I am retired so I have all the time I want.

    I don't work outside my home either and I check the board with my morning coffee. Then sometimes I check it at other times depending on how busy I am throughout the day.

    I check it once a day in the morning - and it takes most of the morning but I learn so much from it.
