    I've been up for a couple hours this morning and thought I'd check my e-mails and I find I've been ALL OVER the board looking at pictures, tutorials, getting ideas, having (my) unasked questions answered, etc., etc., etc. I love this Quilting Forum board but I think it has given me Attention Deficit! I have something in mind but I get so busy LOOKING and having my interests piqued by other board entries that I lose track of what I was wanting to do, originally. Isn't it fun? Does anyone else have this problem?

    I find myself doing the same thing---I get on thinking I am going to check on something specific and then when I get off an hour later, I have been all over the board and realize that I did not even look at what I got on the board to check!!! And when I miss a day on the board, I feel like I have missed out on the world!!!

    Oh, Feathers, you aren't the only one! I always come to see the Main section and the pictures.....then end up flitting all over the place, never remembering what I wanted to check on "next". Sometimes I try very hard to just look and not type, but that never seems to happen, either.

    I'm hooked too, at this rate, I will be doing less and less sewing, and more and more lap topping!

    I resemble that remark!!! Now with the Personal Announcements and Diaries, I don't think I'm going to get anything else done! I might have to set a time limit for the board!!! :D

    Just try being gone a few days and then consider coming home when it's raining so you don't feel guilty about all your aren't doing besides reading!

    My family keeps asking what books I'm reading now......ebooks of messages don't count in their estimation! Geez, what can I say, I'd rather spend reading time here!!
    Hugs,
    Sharon

    I keep telling myself to un-check 'Notify when a reply is posted' - but I don't do it.

    yep i get on here for an idea or two an my brain is on over load .i had a very dear friend find some of her moms stash thats got to be thirty or more years old an she just gave it to me an a lot of it im cutting in strips for pinapple or log cabin quilts.an when i get one of them done i'm going to show it to her because she said she didn't even like the color an it's a plum purple an i thought it would make a perfect log cabin.i'll have to take pictures when done with it.there was 3garbage bages full of these pieces of material .i've got 3/4 of the solid colors cut an have enough to cut make three or four quilts most likely .
