WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.
Philippians 4: 7-9
For our heart rejoices in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let Thy lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, according as we have hoped in Thee.
But let all who take refuge in Thee be glad, let them ever sing for joy; and mayest Thou shelter them. That those who love Thy name may exult in Thee. For it is Thou who dost bless the righteous man, O Lord, Thou dost surround him with favor as with a shield.
"WHEN LIFE IS FILLED WITH SHADOWS, FACE THE SUNSHINE OF GOD'S LOVE."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - January, 2001 Issue.

CROCHET STITCH, TECHNIQUE or TIP
(A different crochet stitch and/or tip featured in each issue...
to be added later to the Crochet Basics page)
If you know of any stitch I have omitted from our basics pages please drop me a line.
I have featured the Reverse Single Crochet stitch before but recently I've had several requests regarding this stitch so I decided to feature it once again.
REVERSE SINGLE CROCHET (a/k/a CRAB STITCH)
A reverse single crochet is worked from left to right; whereas a regular single crochet stitch is worked from right to left. Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook. This stitch takes a bit of practice but the outcome is well worth the effort.

For a motivational boost while working on a larger project such as an afghan... each day when you sit down to crochet, place a stitch marker in the first stitch you work. Once the marker is in place you can continuously refer to the marker to see just how much you've accomplished. This actually motivates me to see just how much I can do each day... Lisa
Being back is so wonderful. I liked the past issues that you let me know about in your letter.
I have come across a little "helper", if you will, it's a nice woven basket, that flowers come delivered in, with a handle. I use it to carry my crocheting in and being medium size, it doesn't take up much room. In the bottom, there is a rather large floral oasis that is glued to it. I left it in and use it to put my crochet hooks and knitting needles that I am using at the time of the project. They stay securely in the basket that way so I don't have to worry about dropping them when I go out to the car or at a friend's when I visit.

Thank you for putting together a fantastic site. I've visited a lot and yours is very easy to negotiate around in. Thanks too for the wonderful patterns.
Hi, just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your site.I work in the recreation dept. at Tenn. Prep School. This is a school for dependent and neglected children. All of your letters, stories and poems have given me a great idea for the kids here on Sunday morning. I also see to it that they have Sunday school and worship services here at TPS. I teach one of the classes myself. I'm going to start a youth leader group for the kids. I want to use the stories, poems and letters for them to read each sunday at the beginning of our worship services. All of the things I read from your site are fantastic!!!!! Thank you so much for posting these.

Re: Hanging Toilet Tissue Cover Pattern
Thank you so much for this pattern! I just made one for my sister, and it is so pretty! I used Simply Soft yarn and a size H hook. I made the main part with dark blue, and the ruffle with white. I also made her a matching tank cover and lid cover! She loves it! She says her bathroom looks so feminine now! Well, thanks again! Kathryn =)
P.S. I enjoy your website... I think you do a great job at it!
I am in "Crochet Heaven". Thank you for the free patterns, several of

Thank you very much for your help. I printed the instuctions and took them home with me and had great success with the double treble stitch. My project is coming along great now. Thank you so much for your help and for your entire web site. I looked over your site after you emailed me back and realized that you had instructions for alot of the stitches. I loved it. Thank you again for your response back to my email and for helping me.
Have a great day! :)

The old gent was backing his Rolls into the last available parking space when a zippy red sports car whipped in behind him to take the spot. The young driver jumped out and said: "Sorry Pops, but you've got to be young and smart to do that." The old man ignored the remark and kept reversing until the Rolls had crunched the sports car into a crumpled heap. "Sorry son, you've got to be old and rich to do that!"
"Open wider," requested the dentist, as he began his examination of the patient.
"Good Grief!" he said startled.
"You've got the biggest cavity I've ever seen -- the biggest cavity I've ever seen."
"OK Doc!" replied the patient. "I'm scared enough without you saying something like that twice."
"I didn't!" said the dentist. "That was the echo."
The local parish priest was making a visit to a family
in the neighborhood. He knocked on the door, and a
little 4-year-old boy answered the door.
The child, recognizing the priest, yells his dad,
"Hey, Dad! That guy that works for God is here!"
I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet,
so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask
what color it was. She would tell me, and always she was correct.
But it was fun for me, so I continued.
At last she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think
you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"

electric light bulb, Thomas. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"
"An abstract noun," the teacher said, "is something you can think of, but you can't touch it. Can you give me an exampleof one?" "Sure," a teenage boy replied. "My father's new car."
