    Set a timer. When it goes off, shut off the computer and start sewing. I've heard that with some effort and practice that it will work however I haven't tried it yet. LOL

    I spent the morning sewing or I should say sew a strip then read a comment on the QB then sew a strip then read back and forth. I actually got more sewing done then expected.

    lol -- i notice that i spend time on here in spurts, and i sew in marathons.

    if i know i have more than an hour - i'll walk to the back of the apt and sew -- half an hour or less, it's to the front of the apt to check the boards, facebook, and assorted blogs.

    too bad today is full of errands -- by the time i'm done running and have a few hours to sew i'll be too tired to think!

    I know what you mean. I went to breakfast with a friend, then on to Joann's and Tuesday Morning. Now back home and still haven't gotten to the basement to work on the silk quilt. I could have had it done by now if I wasn't on here. But then again, I would never have started the silk quilt if it hadn't been for the Quilting Board. So you just have to take a little bad to go with the good.

    LOL I now have my laptop sitting directly next to my sewing machine...and why? So that I can sew and read comments at the same time. I am getting to be an expert at it. Do I get much sewing done? No. But by the end of January, I WILL have my wedding present quilt done. That is if I can STOP READING posts. LOL

    I know how you feel ... there are days that I just can't seem to pull myself away from the computer. I just have to force myself to get up and move....

    I have an excuse right now though - lunch is in the oven :D

    One time I suggested we ask the admin to disable the board for just one day - imagine what we could collectively accomplish without the temptation of the computer.

    You would have thought I suggested we all burn our stashes as a sacrifice to the quilting gods by the reaction I got. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I did take some time off the computer last week...spent at least an hour each night in my sewing room instead of at the computer......and I lost my "regular here status"...somehow have to find a "happy medium"...I think it is also called balance...I do want to get things done...but hate missing some of my computer time...sure wish I had time to get on the computer while at work!|
