    Same problem here. I have saved so many pics, patterns, ideas, etc. I need a separate 'puter just for quilting. Maybe someday. In the meantime I relax after work just reading all the posts and admiring all the beautiful projects everyone shares. It's a fun place to be and we're learning things at the same time. Thanks to all of you for time well spent.

    A goal? Is that to read every topic? LOL :wink: Workin' on it! Ha Ha
    or is the goal to Logout and go get something else done?

    :D I feel the same way! This is a great place. Thank You everyone! :thumbup:

    Try not having a laptop for three months and you can't logon or anything, boy it can be lonesome without you girls and guys. I love this addiction, you can learn, enjoy, have fun and never leave home. You can be late, never eat, and never leave home. I enjoy you gals and dolls.

    I agree with everyone that posted 100 %. You all have said it. Oh, whomever asked about the 12 steps. My husband said he knew of 1 step unplugging me.

    Well everyone has said it all. I only just recently joined this board and in that short time I have been able to save beautiful patterns, learn a few new techniques, join the Farmers Wife Sampler group and post a few things away to new "friends"
    NOW if only DH would go back to work, (he is on leave at the moment but he normally works 1 week on 1 week off on a mine site) then it will get scary as I won't have to cook or clean, just a mad dash the day before he come home lol

    This IS a wonderful Board and I, too, have learned so much. My "Bookmarks" is full of "good stuff." However, a very dear quilting friend of mine (who also belongs to the Board), told me she uses the "Search" and can find everything. So, I have started doing the same and it is great to see everything under the one topic. Thanks to the Admin. for making this Board possible and to all of you "quilters" who share so much and create such beautiful quilts, etc.

    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.

    I want you all to know that I AM NOT ADDICTED! I just get up in the morning and go directly to Quilting Board and check everything out, a morning ritual like brushing my teeth. And I am not addicted to brushing my teeth. It is a habit that is good for my health and happiness. Then when I have everything read and noted and deleted, I do my housework. Every ten minutes or so I come back to the computer, just to check if I got any important messages. I don't like a messy inbox! So I read what is there and note what is important and delete what is not, like the newspaper!!!! Then when everything is read, I delete that - clean inbox! 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

    I did just......that..a friend of mine cleaned out an old puter that ran as slow as molasses and reloaded it with all quiting patterns from her collection.

    no internet...just quilting ..and going those those keeps one occupied as much (well, almost as much) as surfing the the threads and posts..........

    I start subbing for a teacher tomorrow..... not good, as I HAVE to check out this board and I check out everything. I, like many of you, need my fix. I have had to put my machine away and clean up my sewing area as I know I won't have time to sew. Am hoping the teacher gets back soon...

    I love this board too. Soooo many nice peoplel here. It's wonderful to make friends all over the world. Friends whom you can talk to everyday. Talk about all sorts of things. You know, it doesn't always have to be about sewing (even though we are all addicts). LOL Just for fun, name something you really like to do other than sewing. I will be the first to start. I love to cook and read. Now it's your turn.
