I'm lov'in this board but between this one and 1 other I go to I'm not getting anything done. I was reading the "UFO Challenge of the Month 2010" form and thought that is what I need to do--not happening, I'm here to much!!!! So tomorrow I'm going to TRY (you see I said try) to get control of my time on the computer--wish me luck I'm going to need it. :)
I had the same problem. I am retired so I do have a lot of time BUT it still took me all day to get through both of these quilting sites. I love both of them. I now get up at 5 or 5:30 AM, do the computer thing, go for my walk, have breakfast and then get on with my quilting and do some house work if I have time. Ha! I usually don't have the time for the house work. I still have time for my line dance class and square dance club and a little yard work.
I like quilting best well maybe as well as my line dancing.
During the day of course I come back and catch up on the latest posts on both sites and sometimes add my two or three cents worth. I have to try all the things you show pictures of and of course that takes more time away from house work. I have a very wonderful husband who will take over when the house gets to messy.

Me too but I am border line addicted but quilting is my choice of how to spend my time. Like you, I too am retired, married 46 years but only have 2 children and 7 grandchildren, am a hand quilter by choice and they all want and enjoy Grammy's quilts whenever they get one. Every time I sit down to watch TV, a quilt is in my hands and that's ok. While hand quilting a quilt there is also one in some stage of progress - planning or piecing or both. Enjoy and this group is great!

I am becoming a permanent fixture at our local quilting shop and by the way.....I am a newbie who only ever hand quilted but i bought a new Viking last year and guess what i started this week? You guessed it...My first machine quilted piece and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!LOL Thanks to you folks, all of your encouragement to other quilters and all of the ideas you share. Now I can say I am truly retired doing what I love to do best. Isn't that what retirement is?

We are all addicted. I always tell myself I'm just going to look, not post any replies. Well, that NEVER happens. Oh well, there is always tonight while Honey is watching TV

If I have a bit of time at work to check in here, I often share tidbits with the gals. They love to see the pix of quilts, and kids, and furbabies, and enjoy the humour on here that I share with them. No sewers there, but they are always ready for show and tell every time I have something new to show.

This site is like having all of you sitting at my table and having a cup of coffee/tea and munching on sweets and talking, talking, talking. You are my neighbors, friends, teachers, strong shoulders, a crying pillow, and angels. Thank you thank you thank you. God bless.
This made me laugh so hard cuz it is so true. I'm sitting here with the sore elbows and the numb bottom ----- but will I quit---NO WAY!!!!! I love it here :lol: :lol: :lol:
