What an idea. I need a new computer eventually this one is so slow. But I can keep this one for just quilting and get the new one for the household. Then my DD won't complain so much. LOL
Talk about addicted.
I can also loan you these guys. They will make sure you take lots of breaks from the computer.
Damaquilts, you can send me anyone of those babies you have :), they just might get me off of this darn puter. lol Really love the puppies

Then about 1/2 hour later, I do the same thing - messy is as messy does! So, I AM NOT ADDICTED - I AM JUST NEAT!!!!!!! Edie
Oh Edie, I like your way of thinking!!!! I'm taking it. :)

I even enjoy going back to old boards and re-reading many of the posting and particularly looking at the pictures of others quilts. I feel I'm getting adult education and that's a really good thing. Plus it has broadened my list of friends because I have felt friendship from many of you and have learned the joy of sharing what I have with others. This board is great therapy!!! So enjoy and don't feel guilty that you're doing something good for yourself.
Oh I like your way of thinking also. I'm so glad I came here tonight because I now know, I'm not addicted!!!, I'm getting an education, making new friends, and finding therapy when I need it. :) And it's all for FREE, life is good!!

RIGHT ON! I tend to be one of those people who clean my tabs, emails and Board topics all the time too. Makes me nervous if things get too cluttered. Same goes for my housework, sewing room but when it comes to nesting those pointed quilt corners something goes goofy. Oh well, this Board is a great release on life with many super posts and links. Thanks to our Admin, I do not miss a day of it.
