    Here it is,barely 5am & most threads are full overnight.Of course,I have to see what I'm missing,so need to read them.
    Someone mentioned a pattern that looks good. Where to find it & I'm off to the races.Another thread has a new way of making a table runner,someone mentions a very easy way of doing binding.There's a fabric sale going on? & so it goes & goes.
    Someone wants breakfast ? point to the cereal.I'm busy! Pages to bookmark, sites to find, blogs to read.
    A quilt needs cut out,sewn,quilted? Later.....right now I'm trying to keep track of all the new quilt pics, patterns,books & notions I need. Besides,almost surely I'll find another quilt I like better, so why waste fabric. Don't I already have too many UFOs ? That's just a detail.Excuse me, someone just posted about a new gadget that sounds like something I need. Where's that thread ? Excuse me,I need to get busy...........

    Wow, you sound just like me.
    Today I received spiral tablerunner pattern, ruler and another pattern book from1 seller,
    another patter, templates and ruler from another seller,
    and yet another quilt pattern
    Note to self, STOP buying these things, and start making them up.

    Pat, this is just hilarious :). I'd better leave my PC and move my bacon to my sewing table to finfish XMas gifts.

    How funny. I'm ready to ask for a lap top so I can be in the same room that I need to be in. I have limited myself so I do manage to get something done.

    Well, I'm with the rest of you...I'm checking way too many times thoughout the day. Afraid I'm going to miss something. :o) I guess I'll have to take Nancy S's advice and start limiting myself. I won't cut my time too drastic, but I need to get some stuff done.

    Good Grief YES......keeping up is impossible if I want to get anything else done in my life...and my life is very full so I wonder how so many people manage to post so much and if they are just super fast readers/typers? I enjoy reading through entire posts (and that's a challenge in itself). Guess it's just one of those what's most important things to each of us.

    Oh that is a good chuckle! Sounds like me - My hubby doesn't even ask what I'm looking at anymore - He sees the YELLOW BACKGROUND and knows it's quilt related! LOL

    So true, so true!!! Now that I am going to have an invalid dog, I have put his bed in my computer room. I'll be on here a lot, but not getting any sewing done since the sewing room is in the basement. And since I won't be spending any money for a while, I will just be drooling at all the great projects and ideas.

    There is a Christian lady that does a video about taking care of a household. The million things that need to be done. It is hilarious. Don't remember her name. Your post sounds so much like her except it's about quilting. So funny.

    I think it is called ADDICTION, but what a great thing to be addicted to!

    :lol: :lol: Me too!
    I keep my little red Netbook on my sewing table.
    Usually with the XM radio playing the 70's music from it, but can also keep up with this board at the same time. Multi-tasking!! :lol: :roll: :lol:

    :lol: :lol: My DH calls me a cyber quilter, since I have a hard time getting off this #$#$ board long enough to do any sewing! If it wasn't for my sewing day once a week with Lynnejean, I doubt I would get any sewing done at all! You should see my W'sIP and *to do* sewing list. :oops: :oops:
