    I'm hooked!

    Fellow quilters, I only joined up last night and my household chores have fallen by the wayside already. My day usually consists of 80% paid and unpaid labour/chores etc and 20% relaxation and quilting time, that is if everything goes according to plan (sad I know), will have to restructure my day to get an ample daily dose of QB!! Vicki (Had a bit of winter sun this end of the earth today!)

    I agree with Tartan, QB is a great source of inspiration and information but it can eat away at any spare time !! Wish I had a dishwasher !!!

    "I am Hooked" is also the title of my first QB post back in August of 2010!! There haven't been too many days since then that I haven't logged on & checked to see what is going on. Welcome!

    Welcome, this is a good place to get hooked. it is so much more fun then housework and chores. I use to have everything spotless before sewing now the first thing I do in the morning is come here. not a bad place to be.

    Welcome from Wisconsin. I log in a few times a day to see how everyone is doing. When I first joined, I spent (wasted?) hours by using the SEARCH up at the top to look up various topics. It was quite enjoyable!

    Ha I know how you feel I often wonder how much more sewing I would get done if I just stayed off QB.

    Welcome enjoy exploring the board I'm sure you will find it inspiring, informative, and fun

    Welcome to the QB Vicki, from Pennsylvania, USA. Love the last line of your post. Sounds like inspiration words for a quilt!

    While I love the QB, I am not obsessive about it. I do try to read everything at the end of the day.

    I am addicted to the QB. I log on every day to get my quilting fix. If I don't have time to quilt that day, at least I know someone did, and that makes me feel good.
    I think you will find this an informative place when you may have a question, a consoling place when you may be going through a difficult time, and a relaxing place with friends. Some members have even made lifelong friends with others on the board and have been able to establish good friendships. I have received information about what to see on upcoming vacations and have found this board to be a positive influence on my life.
    You must be from "down under."
    WELCOME!
