    How do you all get your sewing done with being on here. I'm on here way too much. I don't want to miss all the pictures of things you have all made. I have learned so much and gotten so many idea's. Thanks to all of you.

    When I first joined I read everything... Now I just subscribe to a few topics and only open the ones that have an interesting title.

    The QB is a bit of a problem.......I enjoy it, so be it. Most days I don't "have to" do anything. I'm certainly not going out in this unending HEAT! Love the board:)

    I don't get anything done until I read the board.

    Step away from the computer!!

    I scroll down through the Unred Topics and start with the pictures. Then I glance down and read the rest...and force myself to step away!

    I'm the same way! I want to see what everybody has been working on -- they are all so beautiful.

    And now, I must leave this computer and go get lost in my sewing area!

    It does take some time away from sewing or doing other things, especially the chat where there are so many wonderful people to chat with and learn from. The whole Quilting Board is where I spend a lot of time.

    I get to catch up while I'm at work during the week, so I can do some sewing at night when I get home and on the weekend I'm up early so I give the board a quick check and get on with my day. I definitely have to keep one eye on the clock when I'm on here. It's so much fun.

    I only allow my self 2 trips to the computer per day , with my morning tea and just before I go to bed. (got up real late this AM didn't get home from guild until almost midnight last night and after that 2+ hr drive didnot wind down for a while) If Im on any more I'd never get anything done!

    I spend way too much time here as well, and feel guilty and angry at myself for not getting my quilting done-but then again, since I don't know many people here, this is my social connection - plus, I know I am "talking" to people about my passion and not feel guilty boring them to death, where no one in my family gives a hoot! I learn so much-but mostly, it is my only real social connection since I spend most of my time at home!!

    Vanuatu Jill, I know what you mean about the social connection. Very important and we have the same passion for quilting, but then we are mostly women so we can talk about women stuff too. :)
    Not that I don't love our guy friends chiming in!!! :)

    I only read it when I have nothing else to do at work (shhh, don't tell the boss). That way it doesn't take away from time with hobbies.

    See how addicted we are to our quilting and quilting fellowship! I'm sure it was worth every mile of that trip.

    Now for the QB....I try to check just a few topics a day, it is fun to see where everyone is from and what they are doing. It also inspires me to GET SOME WORK DONE on my projects. For me the QB actually helps. I also watch a few topics and like to catch up with the advice. I have actually learned a lot of very interesting things here.

    Hugs to all you out there in 'quilt land'!
