Quilt Basket Beauty Quilt Pattern Book by The Quilt Ladies

Pin It
When I started blogging about 12 years ago, there wasn't Pinterest and Facebook was way off my radar. But over the years I have learned and learned. This quilt pattern post is my NUMBER ONE post ever. 



Quilt Basket Beauty is NOW

Repost from 2012

I've been in  Florida having a ball
I love it there and to me there is nothing better. 

I took a little quilt with me, I love quilting with the group in our area and 
I've not hand quilted for some time, here's the quilt I took and it's pattern for you !

Three Years into Retirement

Pin It
I'm going to do this, I've taken a bit of time thinking about this post and I'm just going to do it. I'm not throwing anyone under a bus, but some of these things just have to be said, 
"Out Loud. You need to know !" and NOW IN A BOOK


My post has become a book, NOW on KINDLE
What you have to know before retiring, the day to day things


The Quilt Ladies NOW on Kindle and NOOK


JUST a few to the things I COVER ! 

1.    You MUST have a sense of humor, you MUST laugh, OUT LOUD, 

2.    I had to learn the difference from CHEAP and FRUGAL. 

3.    It’s alright to eat alone, I love it,

4.    BEFORE you retire - GET YOUR MONEY in Order 

5.    It’s just the way life is, 

6.    NEVER again say, 

7.    And, on that note, same with, Medical talk,

8.    Be Kind, with (old)  job titles and big ego’s 
9.    Do a random act of kindness.
10. If you see it, do it, don’t ask, 

11. When I tell you what I want

12. And about check writing, 

13.  Stop starting any conversation with, “I remember,” 

14. A hard one…..personal hygiene

15. Stop sharing every thought 

16. Learn to text, short, sweet and done.

17. Drive with both hands on the steering wheel

18. Piles of papers are just piles of paper, 

19. Stop eating on a schedule,

20. Don’t make noises
21. Do not talk about anything that happened

22. We moved and are closer of family, 

23. Getting here to retirement 
24. This is for all, take care of your skin,


25. LAUGH, smile, rejoice and LAUGH

IT'S all TRUE,
