No one keeps  up his/her enthusiasm automatically.Enthusiasm must be nourished  w/ new action, new aspirations, new efforts.
It's one's ownn fault if his/her enthusiasm is gone, he/she  failed to feed it!"

Ann,  I can't vote either.  I'm always trying and doing new things. I like
going to new places and meeting new people.  Just turned the big 65
and hope I have many good years left. I hope that my husband and I
stay healthy and are able to enjoy retirement! I truly enjoy VBB and
learning new tips, recipes and the wonderful people on this site.

I retired and found it difficult since we moved from where I had lived most of my life to an entirely different state.  Trough my church I have found and outlet and many friends. There are many committees that help others and it makes life busy. We also have become better acquainted with others in the community we live in and make trips to theater, new restaurants, etc. It sometimes does take work to remain enthusiastic.

I voted, but would have chosen more than one.  I love to read and that helps.  I also like to cook and try new foods.    I keep busy and am always doing something.

I volunteer at our Food Pantry each week, and this has been an inspiration for me. I also go to a Pilates class each Monday, which gets me going and keeps me going all week! And I am a regular reader of the Bible, which tops everything else I do.

A while back, actually quite a while back, I mentioned that I was making a quilt.  I am enthusiastically posting a copy of that greater than king-sized quilt at the request of one of our baking community.  Sorry it has taken me so long to get around to this post, but it took me all of the Summer and Fall to finish the quilt.  I kind of got lazy on those hot summer days and headed off to the boardwalk at the beach!

I know this isn't a cooking topic, but I hope you enjoy seeing my second quilt.

that is beautiful!
and as for your 2nd post, it doesn't matter what it is---after all we're at the water cooler.

i have many quilts that my grandmother made into her 90's-----------i have pink tulips folded across my feet at night as extra warmth and all day for accent----------i have a red tulip in my living room and patchworks that are very old in my bedrooms and i love them all and use them every day

i once had a neighbor scold me for sitting on a quilt in my yard----------she said that whoever made that quilt would be very upset if they knew i was using it that way----------------my grandmother would be upset with me if i didn't use them any way i needed------for that was why she made them

Thanks Nellie.  My friend who taught me to quilt reminded me that once I give the quilt, I do not need to be concerned how it is used.  It is a gift and becomes the property of the receiver.  Already our granddog Taffy has slept on it and approves of it!  Also, the quilt is made of non-bleeding fabric so it is entirely washable, just not to be agitated.

You are so fortunate to have the quilts your grandmother made.  I'm sure she'd want you to enjoy them thoroughly in whatever way you want to use them.    

Thanks again for your kind remarks.

Your quilt is gorgeous!  I've made a few small quilts myself, but never that big.  They are a lot of work and you did a great job.

Thanks Debbie.  There are some mistakes in the quilt but not boldly noticeable.  I'm starting another one for our oldest daugher.  I'm trying to make one for each of our kids and, hopefully, each of our grandkids.  This is not a cheap hobby so it will be a while before I reach my goal.
