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)

End of the Blogging Season of My Life

My first blog was called 'Seasons of Violet'. The intent was to write about the different seasons of my life as they happened, like an online diary.

Then I discovered knitting blogs and started 'Stitches of Violet'. It was wonderful. I 'met' so many like minded, friendly people and enjoyed almost a decade of posting about knitting, dogs, granddaughters, and birds.

Now I have moved into a new 'Season'. There is little time for knitting, all my dogs are waiting at the Rainbow Bridge, one granddaughter is now an adult, and the birds I enjoyed are left behind for someone else to feed in Paw Paw/Almena, Michigan.

This is a happy, busy season with my new husband. We have places to go, things to do while we're still able and I have no desire to blog them.

The blogging 'Season' of my life is over.

Blessings to everyone who reads this.

Marguerite Hammond

Enjoy your life's path! My blogging season has been over for a few years - quite refreshing to live and spin and knit without documenting it all :)

Have a wonderful non blogging life. We will miss you. I remember the first time I was envious over a sock yarn, was here. I scoured the internet until I found some for me.
Your blog has been one I always looked forward to reading. Thank you for sharing. Go go and don't look back. The wind is on your face.
