    What Should You Be Doing Instead of Reading the Boards?

    I have to rip out some quilting I did on a panel. I used white thread on a dark fabric, duh!! So instead of ripping, I'm reading the boards!

    Nothing, because it re leaves my stress.

    I get bored easily! So I take breaks from quilting, cleaning, etc. and read the board. Sometimes for hours and end up not finishing a goal I had in mind and staying up too late and being tired the next day.....then doing it all over again! LOL. I really, really like this board and all the wonderful advice. It's addicting! But, really a necessity for a semi-beginner, like myself. I need all the confidence I can get and I feel like I get it here! Thanks, and keep up the good work fellow board members.

    Just finished a table runner, then it is off to bed. Got a craft show to attend tomorrow at one of the plantation homes.
    Suppose to be a beautiful day.

    I come here while my brain is planning my next move. (That's my story and I'm stickin to it)
    I almost never do the "priority" thing first... I have to build up to it whatever it is.

    It's late and we should be in bed, but, we have been playing dominoes with a bunch of people and now we're watching a really good show and I'm watching this computer. I love it.

    I should be piecing my son's quilt or binding the quilt I made for my sister that has been back from my LAQ for two weeks now. Planning to get something done today! Once I'm really out of bed-it's 6:30AM here.

    I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing! I usually read the board between 1-3 a.m....I'm a night owl, and yes, as others have said...this board is addicting! Love the advice, ideas and so many beautiful pictures! It's 1:00 a.m.

    The UFO's are calling to me. I'm ignoring them for the time being. Off to bed and then tomorrow it's housework and cooking prep for St. Patrick's Day. Oh, and taking my son's friend home after a sleepover. The trend of teens not wanting to get their driver's license doesn't bother me until I have to cart friends all over the place (and why don't their parents reciprocate?) But I digress...

    I just got up and brain isn't functioning yet. I'm drinking my coffee and waiting for the newspaper to be delivered. It usually doesn't get here until after 7, so I'll be on here for awhile checking out what you all have been doing.

    I work in circles. Load of laundry, cut some scraps, wash a few dishes, sew a few 9 patches, make up bed, use it to lay out blocks, sweep up shreds from cutting scraps, pin blocks into rows, vacuum, sew the rows, do some gardening, sew the rows together, put away laundry, admire the quilt top while I iron. And people wonder how I get so much done!
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.

    What SHOULD I be doing? Well... now that I'm retired.. whatever the heck I want!
    Although there's lots that needs doing around here. Laundry (isn't here always?!) alterations for people, work in the yard, clean the bathrooms. The list could go on forever.

    But here is where I find inspiration for that next project. Visiting quiltingboard is a gift I give myself each day! Cause I enjoy y'alls company.

    I'm with you HillCountryGal!! Things that NEED to be done can wait. I'm pooped from two days of cake baking. Have them boxed and ready to deliver later this morning. Yes, this is where I get my inspiration. Also am waiting for a fellow QBer to get online for a chat. I'm having withdrawals here. The ideas, inspiration, and friendships here are the best.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I should be thinking of getting ready to go to work, but just one more quick scan.
    Quilt outside of the box!

    I'm doing exactly what I love to do - read about everybody's quilting adventures!
