My last post





For over a month now, I have given all my energies just to stay sane and alive. There are things that demand my energy right now.I may one day again have a blog but this one will deactivate in 24 hours. I appreciate all the support I've had from friends and the ability to share my passion of stitching. Right now, I have no time to design or stitch. One day maybe when this is over I will be able to. If I start another blog in the future it will be a private blog. My dream of designing is haulted unfortunately.


I cannot emphasize how much the readers here have meant to me and I put alot of thought and energy into this blog. For security reasons it must shut down. I will again get back to stitching but right now my energies are going to be directed into basic necessities. I admire all of your work and enjoyed reading blogs even if I couldn't comment as much as I could.

I'm still on facebook and also on Twitter. But only God knows what the future will be.
Take care and I'll never forget each and every one of you. It was a part of my journey that has to end.
I need much rest now and stitching again will be a luxury. And I know I will one day.This is just the end of a chapter in my life.

Yours thankfully,
Jennifer

  9. OMG, I can't believe you're leaving us. I'm so disappointed, but I'd bet you are too. I'll never forget you either Jennifer. I'll keep you on my prayer list and hope that if you ever start another blog, I'll be invited to participate! Thanks so much for everything you've given to the blogging community, and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Good luck and sending lots of love from Ohio!!!

  10. You will be missed!
    Before you go please tell me the pattern with the little house and the ABCs in your previous post stitched in black, I think I have it but I can't find it and it would help to know what I'm looking for - thank you.

  13. Jennifer, my heart goes out to you. I don't know what's happening in your world, but obviously something drastic must have happened to make you feel so full of despair. I've loved reading your blog, and will miss it more than I can say.Blessings from the UK

  14. Sorry ...you will be missed.....

  15. Oh my gosh Jennifer, that's so sad to read. I will miss you. And little Miss Abigail too.
    Isn't there a chance you simply can leave this blog alive and only post when you're feeling like it?
    I don't have a clue what's going on, but I can read a despair between the lines since a while that wants me lean you a shoulder to cry on and giving you a hug (and I'm not really a hugger...so that counts double then)
    Whatever it is that is hurting you dear friend, I wish you well and hope your safe.
    If you ever have another blog, please send me an invite.

  18. I am not on Facebook or Twitter,
    Jennifer, so I will not have a way
    to stay in touch. I do wish you
    well though and pray you will be
    safe and sound and strong in the
    Lord God. You may email me if you
    have any desire to keep in touch
    with me or have prayer requests.
    I have enjoyed your stitching blog
    very much.
    Much Love,

  19. I'm sorry to hear you're closing your blog as I enjoy the non-stitchy stuff just as much as the stitchy stuff. I hope life treats you well! Hugs!

  20. I'm very sad to hear you won't be posting or designing any more. You have such an amazing talent. I’m sorry life has caused you enough pain to make you give up something you love so much.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Whaa?

    This all sounds very dramatic and alarming, Jennifer. I don't know the circumstances so I can only hope that you are okay and send you good thoughts. :)

    I haven't been able to visit or comment upon blogs as much as I would like lately, but I have always enjoyed my time reading your blog. I hope you can be persuaded to keep it open (even if only for an update once a month, as I have been doing), but if it is a security concern I suppose that is not possible.

    How about a stitching album via picassa or something that we can subscribe to? You could post photos of your work and put a little description on them as well. (or none at all, too.) You could invite people at will and keep it invitation only. Though that would be a bit of work in sorting through your email addy list.

    Well, at any rate, take care and hope to see you again!

  22. Jennifer, take good care of yourself. I will miss reading your words but your wellbeing comes first.
    For security reasons.....I really hope it isn't as serious as it sounds.

    And try to find some peace and time to stitch...it'll do you good.

  24. I'm so sorry to hear that you are ending your blog - mostly because I hear such sadness coming through your post. I hope that whatever it is that you are battling right now is soon resolved. I hope you are able to once again stitch and even blog. I have enjoyed following your blog and I am wishing the best for you.

  34. Oh Jennifer, I am sad to see you leave the blogosphere. I have truly enjoyed your posts over the last couple of years and I'm so glad I found you.

    It sounds as if there is something truly serious happening in your life and I'm sorry it necessitates taking down your entire blog.

    I will miss your stories of Miss Abigail and Bodyguard, your little reminders of God's Love and of course, your beautiful designs.

    Take care Jennifer, and know you were deeply appreciated here. I will keep you in my prayers.

  35. I hate to see you leave us! I pray that you see God working in your life, even when it may feel like the world is on your shoulders. Never forget to give it all to Him. I don't know what's happening in your life, but I hope you find peace and comfort even in the hard times. Bad stuff happens, but we'll never be given more than we can handle. It's what makes us stronger!

    I guess I will see you on facebook. If you need anything, let me know.

    Blessings, Jessica
