    I'm guilty as well. Hadn't realized how much I check on the board until it was down!

    Way too funny! I checked once this morning and gave up till just now. I used the time to take an on-line course in something non-quilting and finished 4 lessons. Shows me how much time I w- spend on the board!

    From 10 to 1 PM, I worked on 4 totes, then kept checking to see if it was back up. Didn't really get up and running for me until about 2:30!!!

    I had a sorta productive day, for me. I limped up the lane with my bag of trash, a bag of compost material from the kitchen and a bag of stale bread for her chickens. Some of them are old hens that I kept for my daughter for a year and a half while they got their new house built, one, a silky seems to have a ruptured crop and we didn't think she would live long, so now all the rest of the flock are gone except her and a speckled hen who is one of the originals. It is always fun for me to throw scraps for the chickens. Put compost stuff on her garden area, limped back and read my electric meter, something I dread, especially this winter and came in sent my reading flying away on the web and proceeded to start fixing a real dinner, for a change. Oh, and somewhere in between other chores, I finished quilting a table runner for my youngest daughter.

    Have to confess, after I put dinner in the oven, I checked and the board wasn't back up yet and it was over the time frame, even considering we are 3 hours later than Pacific time and I had an awful thought: What if they just told us they were going to do maintenance and they decided to give the board up and this is it...no more quilting board. I did not want to do any more thinking after that awful though, so got busy again. Can you just imagine?

    I wasn't kidding!! I had to take DD to the Dr. and thought well I will be alright til I get home but the office had Wi-Fi and I was on til the board shut down. When I got home I kept checking to see if it was back up.

    It ended up being 20 more rows. But that is done. Now to trim strings, then add binding. Almost done and I can see daylight. :-D

    Thank God that I was scheduled to work while the maintenance was going on. Don't think I could have stood being disconnected from my family.

    I seldom read the site after nine a.m., or before six p.m., so the update time didn't bother me, at all. Usually I start my day with the friends here, and then get busy on the few chores around the house that a very retired couple generate. Mostly it is cooking or laundry, and I don't mind doing them, and in the afternoons, I sew. piecefully, the old one

    Well, I had to go get thread for the "Papaya" prom dress. Of course Wally World had orange or red, no papaya and no cheap sheets in the clearance aisle. So off I went to my LQS, closer than Joann's, and got papaya quilting thread. Hey! It matches. How many times is she going to wear this thing anyway?!?! Stopped to get gas for the truck and had an old man flirt with me. He was about 70. Mind you, I will be 70 on my next birthday. But I like to think I look a LOT younger than that. :roll: :roll: Anyhow I ended up doing the hems, lining and outside on the serger, does a beautiful rolled edge. It was a lot faster than trying to iron a perfect rolled hem and stitch on the sewing machine. Made myself a nice chicken dinner and back on the board in the evening. Today it's back to normal.

    Will be praying for your daughter's safe return.

    So glad to see we are all happy once again, this Board is running smoothly again, and shall remain that way, due to the maintenance and moderator's fine work....we are lucky, some sites do maintenance once a week, and down for 4 hrs.

    While the board was down for maintenance, I did the only thing a girl could do...I went to my LQS for some retail therapy! :thumbup: so the time down wasn't a total loss!!
