Update on My Absence from Buttons for Baga

Dear Friends and Faithful Followers:

Over the past 6 months or so, I have found I'm unable to keep up with three blogs all running simultaneously. I totally deserted the "Counting My Blessings" one a year ago, but did try my best to post here at least every now and then...through July of this year.  I now realize that this is not going to work out, either. Due to the arthritis in my thumbs and wrists, I have almost completely stopped my knitting, quilting, and sewing. I still do a bit of crafting when I need to give a gift, but that's about it. All of my time has been spent on my photography blog over the past 6-8 months, and I am totally absorbed in learning about my camera and art of taking and processing artistic photographs. Consequently, I am going to put this blog to sleep for a bit, or at least until my my joints will let me get back into the hand work that has been such an important part of my life for over 50 years. In the meantime, I would love for you to come and visit me at my active blog. I miss hearing from you all so much, and am always wondering in my heart how you are doing.  My active blog is:


If you do find the time to stop by, I will send you little notes back. Do take care and have a wonderful fall and winter. I hope that we will all be able to enjoy some of the beautiful colors that Mother Nature has to share with us. Take care, and I hope I will hear from you in the future.

Hugs and love to all of you who so faithfully followed me through the birth and development of my blogging way of life on my Buttons for Baga.

Hugs and happy thought to all of you,



  1. Geeezzz, doesn't arthritis just SUCK? I am so happy for you, that you have found photography! It is my daughter's passion, and surely less physically daunting than making quilts! Best of luck to you!

  2. Totally understandable sweet friend! If it hurts to much to do the things you've loved in the past, it's important to channel your creativity elsewhere into a forum that allows you to express yourself. I'm on my way to check out your other blog now. Have a happy fall!

    p.s. I'm buying my first SLR camera soon, I'm excited and very intimidated!

  3. Stopping by to see how things are going! I hope you're doing well - thinking of you,

  4. blogging is always good but if we caanot find time to it everyday, i believed it is fine...we'll just need to do what is really the priority..

    thanks for the visit in one of my blogs..take care..
