Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Goodby Blogging



After almost ten years of blogging, it's time to move on.

Thanks to all my readers who have followed me through many knitting projects, admired my bird pictures, watched my granddaughters grow, enjoyed my doggy school tales, and comforted me in the sad times. Blogging has been a blessing and I will miss it, just a little.

My life is very different now. I have a soul mate to spend the days with, the remaining two dogs are retired, and I'm planning to move into a townhouse in Portage/Kalamazoo, Michigan. It's all good and I am happy.

Blessings and happy knitting to all of you.

Marguerite

I have enjoyed reading your posts and seeing your pictures. I wish you happiness in your new adventures. (I'm a little late seeing this - I have had a few new adventures of my own) Best wishes.

I am new to your blog. I started at the beginning and through to 2013. I cried when your hubby died, and your dog died. I rejoiced with you when you found a new love and new life.
This blog and any new messages will be missed.
