    On vaca this week babysitting 7mo gs and now that he is napping you would think that I would be cutting strips for the playmat I am making him but NO, I'm here with you all.

    I say "oh, no time for this, no time for that" but I really need to unplug this thing, pack it up and put it far far away so I can get some sewing and cross stitching done.

    But I don't.

    Why not?

    I think I have a problem.

    HELP! lol

    Oh, I know what you mean. If I would put 1/2 the time I spend on here in sewing or quilting I would really get stuff done. But then I figure if I sewed that much I would go broke having to but more fabric. So I look at it as visiting the QB saves me money.

    Oh!! I could not agree with you more, and what is worse than just the "Recent Topics" is "Members Buy/Sell/Trade -- Classifieds"!! I go there first, and I have to sit and convince myself I really do not need that!! I need to finish what I have first, but then I see something I just have to have!!

    You said it girl. I'm here checking things out while a load of laundry is going and the quilt I'm putting the binding on is spread out on dining room table. There goes the washing machine buzzer so it's back to house work and quilting for awhile but I'll be back later when I take a coffee break. May in Jersey

    How you mean addiction? It is the last thing I look at at night and the first thing in the morning. Anything wrong with that? LOL Anyone dare to differ? I don't want help. Just leave me alone with my addiction. I am quiet happy indulging myself.

    I am on here a lot, even though I don't post much. I come upstairs for a break and have to get on here reading everything. I just love it! It relaxes me.

    My newsletter email comes (in Australia) about 10pm, when I'm too tired to do any sewing, and really I prefer to sew in daylight as I get older. So if I'm reading this late at night I am a bit limited in how much time I spend, since bed also beckons (and I must also check my ebay watch list every night!) That's how I handle my addiction.
    cheers

    Problem, I see no problem... I should say "run, run far away from this site and never look back, unfortunately, it's too late and you are hooked. So get ready to enjoy many hours on end at this site! It's great.
