. . . luv 'n stitches for our tired old world

my 200th blog post 💜 show’s over… hooray!!!

keyboard with hand-knit birdie/flowersiMac with June backyard in bloomkeyboard with hand-knit birdie/flowersHello & Welcome to my “curtain call” episode for seasons 1 & 2 of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is the one thing my heart’s been longing to write for the longest time… my iMac is BACK!!! 🙂

Seasons come and go, and now November has us blanketed in snOw! But the story behind today’s post began way back in the spring of 2014, when for 6 solid weeks my iMac fell comatose. Question then was whether to fold or pick up my iPad and go with the flow?!? Choosing the latter allowed this blog to grow and also set my heart to overflow!

Then one year later (nearly to the day), another fork split my blogful way when that sleepy ol’ iMac of mine died again!!! We were sure it was gone for good, this time :-/ Still, we kept trying to restart it. And for 2+ years, the iPad said hello, while the ol’ iMac had become a photo prop for “the show”… Good thing too ’cause those pics kept us from depositing it at the recycle depot 🙂

Finally lo and behold in June 2017 after this post, we gave it one.more.try and my iMac said a bright-eyed hello!!! Thank You Jesus for hearing my prayers and answering with a keen sense of heavenly humour by “replacing” my ol’ iMac with none other than my ol’ iMac… HA! 😛 Definitely a bright spot amidst our crumbling-grumbling world. And what a relief to be loosed from my iMac’s merry-go-round ❤ Indeed, it took several days before I could pick my jaw up off the ground! 😉

So for today’s 200th blog post, I’m celebrating God’s earthly provision ❤ For it is His provision that has enabled me to knit this whole mess into 8 + 85 KWH iPad Show posts PLUS welcome 1,000+ fresh faces into blogful followship PLUS keep my sanity!

And to all of you dear readers…
my heartfelt appreciation for your hearty support and encouragement along the way! ❤

  17. I think I found a new sister! My Chromebook turned pink when I used it in my office with a vaporizer. (Dumb, I know, but I was sick.) I prayed for it and the pink is now a pale gray. I am praying for its full recovery! God cares about the little things. Thanks for the “likes” and following my blog.
