    Cool I will not be held captive today!

    I will not let this board keep me captive all day today therefore keeping me from getting anything done. I have a quilt to square-up and binding to sew, and a block of the month to make. Now I have to tell my DH to hide my IPAD and do not allow me on the PC. Wish me luck!

    Yes, you will. You are already captive just like me. I need to be cleaning as my future MIL will be visiting tomorrow; I just don't feel like it right now. LOL Good luck though!!

    I am unfortunately being held captive by CHORES. We're redecorating the family room - huge job. I also need to mow the lawn and the rest of the house has suffered from general cleaning duties since the family room project began.

    As for sewing though - this family room project comes at a good time. My husbands daughter is expecting and she's having a scan Wednesday to determine if I make a pink quilt or a blue quilt

    I will however be taking my breaks here on the board
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I finished my house blessing (housework) with DH's help to move the fridge and freezer away from the wall. If those appliances aren't moved every six weeks the amount of dust is disgusting. Where does all that stuff come from? LOL. I don't like surprises when any of my furniture is moved. The house is clean, dinner tonight is a salad, DH will be occupied with whatever he went to Lowe's to buy this morning, so I will be in my sewing room the rest of the day. I am making a quilted prayer shawl for my guild's sale table.
    Got fabric?

    Go for it Joyce!!!! I limit myself to one hour a day to be on the QB. Otherwise I would not get anything done.

    I look at this board for about half hour in the mornings. Then at the end of the day, I go on and stay on as long as I want to. Usually by this time, everything is done that "needs" to be done and this is my time.

    Good luck. I have lowered my computer time when this board changed. It really was a blessing for me. It's the other boards that can get me in trouble now LOL! Post what you accomplish when you dare get back on here

    I have stopped by for a dose of happiness and sanity....I haven't had too much time for quilting lately, but have been managing a couple of hours in the evenings working on my GFG (only edge rings of 18 blocks to go then I get to join it all together). I am hoping to finish the top by the end of this year, then next year will be the handquilting. I have 4 other quilts on the go, a denim, a chair throw, a string for my future DIL Rachel, and a random scrappy QS for our bed. Family dramas and some repairs after a tree fall have been keeping me from my machine....I love this board....a constant inspiration and of course, knowing there are other like minds out there in the world, gives me a boost when things are looking a bit grim

    I haven't been held captive since they changed the format. I'm here 10-15 minutes tops. Seems as though there are so many repeats every day. I loved the old board but perhaps this is much better for me; I am doing much more quilting than reading. Actually feels good!

    It's an addiction to those of us with access. You are wise to "STEP AWAY FROM THE SCREEN" and good luck.

    I love this board. I joined after it was the "new Board" so I don't know any thing different. But I do come on in the morning and then at night. Inbetween I am sewing, knitting or reading. Books on Tapes makes it so I can multitask.

    When I don't have work at my job, I check the board. After I get home and do my chores, I sew on the super scrappy log cabin quilt I am making. I get back on here and play computer game, drag off to bed and start over again.

    Words with Friends on Facebook has become a detriment to my getting anything done, but I had to give four final exams in two days to end the Spring semester at school, grades need to be done by 3:00 on Thursday, have a 30-shirt t-shirt quilt that needs to be done by Saturday (I am in the process of sewing sashing to shirts) and I want to spend a day out-of-town with my husband. And, BTW summer school starts on Monday and I don't have my syllabus written. (How do you spell busy? Can I get it on a triple word space?)
