    So glad I'm not the only one spending to much time on this site. Normally I at least make the bed and do the dishes, but not today. Ah well the housework won't be going anywhere and did take borrowed dog for long walk.

    I too spend way to much time her but I enjoy all the suggestions, information and even laughs! I just haven't been focused, lately, on my quilting. I have so many that need to be quilted but my preference is for piecing. No I can't afford to send them all outto be quilted.:)

    Since I'm a night owl..I'm on all night! Yes I spend too much time here! I have really learned alot though...each section is full of great tips, pictures, sales and fun letters. I love all the pretty quilts, pets, kids, husbands and wives pics, LOVE the pictures section.
    Love the stashes that people find on Craigslist, yard sales, goodwill etc. Love the sewing machine collections! The messy sewing rooms, the NEAT sewing rooms, the organizing ideas.
    I love anything about quilts and quilting. so it's a joy to be here.

    Yes, me, too. I can sometime spend 3 hrs. in the morn. on here. That's one advantage of living alone now. I get excited when I see that "Konstantin" email. It's also fun to ck out all of the links. There is no end to some of them. One leads to another whole list of them. Such fun.

    Yes I feel that way too. I tell myself I won't be on for too long but it is so much fun and so informative that I just have to stay on here.

    I get on here nearly 3 times a day. Morning, lunch time and night. i first go on facebook and play the few games I do then to the emails. After deleting the junk mail I come here for about 2 hours. I have to thank every one because when I had panic attacks last week, reading all your stories etc helped me to relax enough to go to bed at 2.30am. I would not miss reading your thoughts and opinions as I too am learning more things every day. i have been quilting for 10 years now. :thumbup:

    I do spend a lot of time on here. Wish I could reply to all posts especially in Pictures and Introductions. I feel guilty only replying to some.Unfortunately work and housework does get in the way oh, and I do have to find some time to actually do some quilting.

    Hey guys!! I have the same problem so I have been brainstorming(this could get scary!!) tee heee, Lets consider this SCHOOL and since so many of us give so much away we could call it a Divine Calling, and then we can get it sanctioned by the church and blessed and our time seen here as protected by the church and and and... if I dont get burned at the stake for blasphemy ! No joke , since I am a bit intense in personality my dear Pastor once told me (TRUTH) when I feel stressed I should just go work on a quilt!!! i asked him if I could get that in writing!!!

    I should be getting all the scrapes etc and other things off the floor, but here I am. Must take a break from here and get a few chores done. So much to do and to read. One of these days I will become an organized person.
    but would that be fun or not.

    I love this forum. I feel like some of you are personal friends because I see your posts and pictures daily. I know I should be doing something else but I have to check on my friends!
