    I have been on this board for a fairly short time but have found myself pretty addicted to it. I started by checking out only the pictures so see what everyone was working on and to get ideas. Then it was the main topic and then the tutorial and the swaps and so on. I was checking them out just once a week and now I could spend hours just reading enjoying it all. First thing in the morning I'm on to see what I missed during the night; then I'm on while I watch my soaps and then again at night. Am I addicted? I'd rather stay here than vacuum or clean. Anyone else with this problem? Love to hear your story.

    I use this board like a newspaper in the morning . . . with my coffee and a cookie... to wake up. Don't talk to me until I have coffee.

    About an hour later I'm done surfing the net (here and other places) and I'm doing things around the house for an hour before I stop and get ready for work.

    I don't know how people get out of bed and head right to work...I need to wake up! :)

    I find myself checking here several times a day. I am don't go to a 9-5 job every day, so I am able to do that.

    Yes. I enjoy checking in and catching up on posts I am following. I take advantage of my resting time to browse. It is funny how many times I stop sewing and go to the computer to search a question I have had. There is so much knowledge shared on this board and I take advantage of it every day. People are so willing to help and it is not just gab. What they say is the way it is! I am addicted and absolutely plan to stay that way./Regards, Dorothy

    I am on the computer at work all the time and I check this site out way too often! I'm afraid of missing something I guess.

    Me too! I put laundry in the washer and come back here. While I'm waiting for dinner to come out of the oven, I'm surfing here. There's just so much to learn, to laugh about and to share. And I don't think I've ever met an unfriendly quilter. It's kind of like having a whole lot of pen
    pals here. My sons wondered why I've never gotten on FaceBook or Twitter but this site is so much better than anything else.

    I spend way more time on here than I should!!! I could probably finish a quilt each week (or maybe even 2 or 3) for the amount of time I'm on here checking stuff!!!!

    I am here often as well, it is addicting as many say! I have found a wealth of information and enjoyment from comments and visiting the permanent topics. I do find I have to push myself away from the puter and do other things, like dinner and laundry! lol and SEW!!!
