    Oh my! I hope I didn't upset anyone. I did see two lovely quilts here that I wanted to save for future viewing so I pinned them to my Pinterest board. I have always requested permission from the QB member before, but was in a great hurry this time as I needed to leave for an appointment and failed to ask permission. If it was me, please take no offense, I did it because I LOVE your quilts and wanted to look at them better and longer.

If i do want to research something, I will do a search on the net, find all the links, find the one(s) I may want and be done with it. However, as an aside, I do like watching YouTube quilting tutes......better than when they were on tv......jmho
    I am sure it is not the TItanic - It is a safe little dinghy just big enough for two! I like the tutorials on YouTube. I don't do links very much cuz I don't know much about that. If a google gives me Menard's as a link, that's ok, but for something I have no idea what it is, I just forget it and go upon my happy way and at my age, hey, I have forgotten all about it five minutes later. I don't have a smart phone, I don't have the newer cellphones - I hate cellphones - I have a lan phone in the house - with cordless phones - Where am I going to go that I can't talk on the phone here at home or in the back yard, for crying out loud. Like I said before if God had meant us to have those kind of phones that you can text, etc., He would have put a finger in our ear! Don't even have to talk anymore - just text. I use the cellphone on a trip over 85 miles and my phone company has a bundle that I have where I can call anywhere in the US and not be charged extra for it. Have had it for years. I also have the caller ID, like that too. I don't even have a lap top. I have a three year old HP that I am happy with. Come October I will be able to change it over to Windows 10 for free. Whatever that means, except for the fact that I changed from 8 to 7 because Windows 8 was so horrible and I still don't understand all the apps, so I just leave them alone, don't touch them and have my little icons on the side of my screen. In my 76 years upon this great earth of ours I have had so darn many things to remember (and this I learned from TV on a commercial that it was already ingrained in my brain by the time I was three) that what I can do now, I do it well, and and don't want to learn to do it any better. I think back of Mom who was born in 1916 and what she had to learn in her 97 years of life. I swear I have learned more than she had forgotten and I was amazed at the stories she told us kids about her growing up years, and how it doesn't matter to her now, (that was a few years ago. She died in 2013. I think what she was trying to tell us was that what was easy for us to learn back then was hard for her to even comprehend - like jet planes, man on the moon, etc., and I am beginning to feel like that also. I am just happy the way my life is going now. I read where one lady has a camera on her computer? I just bought a new camera and cannot even figure out how to put the pictures into the computer. Besides another thing, who the heck has the money to be able to afford these smart phones or whatever they are called. I do not give out my phone number to anyone other than doctor or bank or friend. I have a phony number that I put on my checks. They don't need the phone number for ID, they use it to open their cash registers. That is what I was told. Also that giving out your phone number or anything else you don't feel comfortable with is a total invasion of privacy. AND THAT I DO PROTECT. Right down to an unlisted phone number. I also found out that when you get the marketing calls your phone number may be 555-1212 and if you don't answer your phone it automatically goes to 555-1213, 1214, 1215 ad infinitum. So that's how that works. Or so I was told!

    I am going to fix me some breakfast now, pick up the house, get me out my William Kent Krueger audiobook and listen and try to get 13 blocks made today and when I am done with that, I will do some hand binding. That's all I can handle in this lifetime. But, thank you for agreeing with me on some things....my daughter-in-law and son think I am wacko and are ready to put me in the home. I don't think so!!!!! I honestly think my brain is better than theirs, because I am stuck in the last century and don't even want to think about what I would have to learn to keep my head above water - glub, glub, glub. Have a great day. Edie
    Home is where the rags of your life are turned into quilts, lemons become lemonade and a few extra pounds are simply welcomed as "more of you to love."
    I am so confused. I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse."

    Explained very well.

    I do understand your feelings. I imagine the person who 'pinned' it did so because she/he liked your quilt and wanted to remember it. It is kind of like I do when I snap a photo of someone's landscaping or decorating when I'm out and about....I save to a file I have titled 'Ideas'.

    I think social media is a damned if you do , damned if you don't thing. To enjoy the benefits of it, we have to put ourselves out there and I can say I am uncomfortable with that to a large degree. I do Pinterest, and pin links of things that interest me, so I enjoy that aspect of it. On the other hand, my Facebook page is not much to write home about, because I'm not telling the world where I work, or who my kids are, or what I'm doing, etc. That creeps me out to think some stranger would know personal things about me like that. Of course, I'm an old broad, and may be behind the times, but that's just how I feel.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    or your medical insurance provider??? Lots of info hacked on that one.

    I confess. I am an avid Pinner. I have pinned from the QB, but I always give credit. Why do I pin certain quilts? I really like them. I want to look at them again. They inspire me. In other words, it's a compliment.
    Feel the fear and do it anyway!
