    Oh, I didn't say that I go to "What's New?" Don't enjoy the automatic connection as much because it seems to be a rehash of older things. Not sure how that is determined.... by number of responses???

    The first thing I do in the morning is open the board. I go down the line as listed, and I spend at least an hour, and several times during the day, I will open it again to see if I missed anything!

    I let my cute dogs out, get my coffee and read the quiltboard for about an hour. Love it!

    Usually my first stop when I open my e-mail at work. I move through the latest new topics, then the pictures, then look very quickly at swaps, recipes and off. Seldom more than 20 minutes. What really takes my time is looking at links for new patterns or getting caught watching the latest Missouri Quilt tutorial! I love them and book mark many but they are a constant distraction. Some days I really would rather be . . . . quilting!

    I mainly only come here at work, use my evenings for quilty things. Whenever I'm not busy I check out the quiltboard. I go to private diary, chit chat, main and then pictures. If there isn't anything I'm interested in then I check tutorials and sometimes blogs. I work for my Husband so I can.

    I usually log on around 3pm and treat myself to at least a couple of hours at QB. It may take longer if there is more I'm interested in and nothing good on TV. I have been using the automated e-mail thing, but I may start logging on and reading the most recent posts. I enjoy most of the threads and posts. I read most threads all the way through and follow links. It is a real addiction, but I figure since, I'm retired I can do it if I want to. :>)

    I am an early riser but like most, I enjoy a cup of coffee with QB... but only spend about 30 minutes on the board keeping up on current posts and recent photos and after being motivated by other quilters... I power up my Janome to work on my projects. I have a full-time job so I am limited on the amount of time I can work on my machine.

    i spend about 2 hours in the early morning before i go back to bed. i get the email at 6 am. first, i check out the items for sale. next, i go to the archive "main" and look at all of the topics. i click on the ones that look interesting. i start at the bottom and go up. i always click on the last one for that day so i know where to start the next time.

    Good Morning Ladies, I guess we all fall into about the same boat. I get my coffee then turn on the computer and come here. I probably spend 2 hrs a day on here I love the tutorials & reading about all our problems and looking at the beautiful quilts. Let's stay with it.

    I read it every morning with breakfast, then any other time I can during the day, or when I go to bed. Pictures are my favorite, but I start with Main and work down. It wasn't until I joined until I found out how people can get caught up with spending hours on one site!!!! I do make sure I read my daily devotions first. I just love you all and learn so much!

    I,too, enjoy the site with morning coffee. Whatever topic catches my eye is where I start. New to the site this is my first post. Have been learning so much from all who post. Recently retired so have pulled the old sewing machine out,dusted it off and have been having a grand time planning winter projects

    I tend to look in several times a day. I really enjoy seeing what others are doing. I start w/ Main and then go to pictures. I just started quilting several months ago and have found so many useful tips and ideas.

    Way too much time, I am blaming Quilt Board for me having a dirty house! Just saying.

    I think I am the worst person on this blog for spending time. I am on it Monday thru Friday off & on between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm while I am at work. I don't want to miss out on the conversations and ideas! Because I ride my horse on the weekends, there is always a lot for me to catch up on.

    Oh, and I may spend from 20 minutes to 2 hours. It is very addictive. AND I am with Beck55----don't clean as much as I used to. Have to spend time in my sewing room too!! Priorities, you know!!!

    Oh Lizzy & Gail, I'm happy to see I'm not the only pathetic person on here. Now that I am also alone, I laughingly refer to the QB as my "social life". I, too, grab my coffee & fire up the computer & spend a cpl. of hrs. on here. I start at the top Main & work my way through every section. Those links drive me crazy because I have to ck. them all out. Can't risk missing something.
    I often ask what would I do if I didn't have a computer. I'd sure have a cleaner house although I do have a clean, tidy home.
    I'm always trying to teach other quilters what I've learned here. I'm always surprised that with as many members as there are that so few actually contribute or chat.
    Pat
