    Before I go on the quilting board I always tell myself that I will only stay on for a little bit of time as I have soooooo many things to do. I tell myslef, I will only answer a few questions, comment on a few quilt pictures but welcome all the newbies. Well this is what I intend to do but find myself on the board sometimes for 2 hours or more.
    Are you in charge of your time or are we all influenced and held captive by our love of quilting.

    I spend a lot of time by myself, when DH is in Lubbock tending to business there. I'm also not a big fan of tv. So, I spend a lot of time on the board looking at stuff and reading posts. However, I just downloaded Kindle for PC's and bought a couple of Earlene Fowler books, so now I'll have to choose. Oh My! :-D

    I'm kind of "regimented" that way....I'll put the kitchen timer on so I KNOW it's time (of course I have a "Noah edition computer"..... I have to admit it's wonderful to see pictures of everyone's quilting journey though.

    I am pretty proud of myself today cause I finally managed to stay off the QB for most of the day and most of the weekend.

    If I hadn't stumbled upon this board, I would never have gotten back into quilting after a 20-year hiatus!! Any time I spend on here is a learning experience!!

    I usually stay up way to late on this board and get up early. Once in a while I will take a nap. I'm trying to make lots of quilts, but, don't work on them during the evening since I retired a month ago. I don't get on the board during the day.

    I stayed off it for most of the day!

    Oh,wait, that was because I was at work all day!

    Now, I'm trying to catch up on what everyone wrote, all the newbies, breakfast, etc.

    I try to control my time, then someone posts something I just HAVE to read and even comment on, and so it goes.

    Great place to be with lots of great friends!

    Missed you too!

    Not even started. Unless you consider I ordered a piece of fabric today that I may use in it! (Don't count on a 'real' king size, you know I work in miniatures. :lol: )

    Besides I'm working on so much other stuff, I've not touched my machine or any fabric in nearly a week! I'm having withdrawals!

    I'm soooooooo hopelessly addicted to this board. I'm on first thing in the morning and later on the evening almost every day. I don't get as much sewing done as I used to before I found this wonderful site, but I'm not complaining.

    Yep...I'm hooked! But I have learned so much!
    I find that my conversations are frequently sprinkled with the words, "my friends on the quilting board say..."
    I really do look to you all as my friends. You are all so kind, generous and helpful!

    Some days I allow myself 10 posts to read then I get off and get something done. I do drop in while I'm having lunch and to wind down to go to sleep. And then there are the days that the board calls me from the other end of the house...and...........
