    I've not been sewing since my granddaughter got me hooked on playing Farmville on Facebook. Over the last year and a half I've been addicted to it. I could have made 4 quilts and learned 2 foreign languages in the wasted time spent on the computer. I think I need a 12 step program. I know how ridiculous it sounds and can't believe how much dopamine flows as I keep getting to higher levels. Have mercy on anyone you know who is into Farmville. They need HELP!
    Anyway, I'm going to get back to sewing and hopefully, I'll be inspired by reading your comments and seeing photos of all your beautiful creations. Comeback Kid

    Sympathies! no electronic addictions myself, I think because I am on the computer for at least 40 hours a week often 7 days a week, but I have an adult daughter with an I-phone she has had for a few months and I can tell you for a fact she has a Problem!! Not so funny anymore either, I can tell you.

    My niece tried to get me started with Farmville, but I decided I'd rather read the QB, so never even looked at it. I use to get two or three emails a day from her, or long winded phone calls, but since she is doing FV, I never hear from her unless I call her. DOn't get me wrong, I love playing games on the PC, but ! At least the hours I spend on QB teaches me something!!

    Hi from Massachusetts. I am a reformed addict to Tumblebugs, so I know the feeling.

    Hello again, I joined Aug 15 and am finally back sewing again. I gave up Farmville and have made a Green Bay Packer Bowtucks purse for one daughter (will post pic as soon as I figure out how). In the process of making another bowtucks for daughter in law who is elementary teacher. Turning out real cute.
