Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his garment as white as snow; and the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. And the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come see the place where He was lying."
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, beheld by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
1 Timothy 3:16
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
And let the one who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life.
ARE SAVED NOT BY WHAT WE DO
BUT BY TRUSTING WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE."

Gauge refers to how loose
or tight you crochet your the stitches in a pattern.
Knowing how to measure gauge is beneficial especially if you want to use a yarn that is different than what the designer used in the pattern.
When two crocheters make
the same pattern using the same hook and yarn they may not end up with the exact
same size project. One crocheter may have tight stitches and the other looser
This does not mean one is correct and the other isn't.
It simply means the finished project size may vary.
The only time you need to worryabout how tight you crochet is if you're making a project that calls for a gauge. If your pattern calls for a gauge then you need to make a swatch as indicated in the pattern and measure it. If the swatch measures correctly you keep working with the indicated hook. If not, adjust your hook size accordingly. Hook sizes are listed only as a guide.
Some patterns list measurements
for a certain number of stitches and/or rows.
This tells you if your tension or gauge meets what is recommended for your pattern.
If not, adjust your hook size accordingly.
E X A M P L E
Your pattern says:
Gauge: In patt, (sc,ch 1) 4 times = 2”, 8 rows 1¾”
This means, when you work
a swatch/sample in the pattern stitch which is:
single crochet, chain 1
single crochet, chain 1
single crochet, chain 1
single crochet, chain 1
Those stitches should measure
2 inches across.
When you work 8 rows of the pattern stitch, the rows should measure 1-3/4 inches.
Keep in mind... if your project isn't for a garment or an item that needs to be the
approximate suggested size in the pattern instructions... then checking the gauge isn't as critical.

I was really happy with the large colorful project photos.
There's something for everyone!
The aspect of Fabulous and Flirty Crochet that stood out to me was the section on the yarns used in the patterns.
One page shows "actual size" photos of the yarns which makes it super easy to substitute other yarns if you want to.
For those who stay strictly to the recommended yarn in a pattern Katherine has included a yarn resource list.
The projects are very fashionable and perfect for gift giving... though I'm sure you'll have to make something for yourself :o)
I can't wait to try the Flirty Skirt and the Ruffled Strap Tank.

A five-year-old lad was watching his mother change the baby. When she overlooked sprinkling the tot's backside with talcum powder and hurried him into his diaper, the five- year-old chimed in, "Hey, Mom, you forgot to salt him!"
A man is talking to the family doctor. "Doc, I think my wife's going deaf." The doctor answers, "Well, here's something you can try on her to test her hearing. Stand some distance away from her and ask her a question. If she doesn't answer, move a little closer and ask again. Keep repeating this until she answers. Then you'll be able to tell just how hard of hearing she really is." The man goes home and tries it out.
He walks in the door and says, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
He doesn't hear an answer, so he moves closer to her. "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no answer. He repeats this several times, until he's standing just a few feet away from her.
Finally, she answers, "For the eleventh time, I said we're having MEATLOAF!"
My sister, went to the department store to check out the bridal registry of our niece whose wedding was coming up soon. When my sister returned from the store, she tossed the gift list on a table and declared, "I think she's too young to get married."
"Why do you say that?" I asked.
"Because," she said, "they've registered for Nintendo games."
At my grandparents 50th
wedding anniversary, I was looking through a photo album of their marriage ceremony.
"Grandma, so many of these styles have come back over the years," I commented.
Grandma never hesitated.
"That's why I've kept Grandpa all this time," she said.
"I know he'll be back in style again one of these days."
When we brought our new-born
son to the pediatrician for his first checkup, the doctor said,
"You have a cute baby."
Smiling, I said, "I'll bet you say that to all the new parents."
"No," he replied, "just to those whose babies are really cute."
"So what do you say to the others?" I asked.
"He looks just like you."

Forget about the past, You can't change it.

One day, an employee received an unusually large check. She decided not to say anything about it. The following week, her check was for less that the normal amount, and she confronted her boss.
“How come,” the supervisor inquired, “you didn’t say anything when you were overpaid?”
Unperturbed, the employee replied, “Well, I can overlook one mistake but not two in a row!”
Our mom needed a new mattress for her antique bed, so my brother, Josh, and I decided to buy her one as a gift. The problem was we weren't sure what to get, because it was an odd size. Fortunately, my brother happened to be visiting my mother one day when I called home. "Measure the bed frame before you leave," I told him.
"I don't have a tape measure."
"You can use a dollar bill," I suggested, "each one is six inches long."
"Can't," he replied after digging through his wallet, "I only have a ten."
An airport porter, loaded down with suitcases to the point he almost couldn't see where he was going, followed a couple to the airline check-in counter, where he gratefully deposited his burden.
As they stepped up to the
ticket agent, the husband turned to his wife, glanced at the large pile of luggage,
"Why didn't you bring the piano, too?"
The wife, a little annoyed, retorted, "Are you trying to be funny?"
"No," the husband sighed, "I really wish you had. I left the tickets on it."
Two goobers living in College
Station were sitting on a bench talking....
and one goober says to the other,
"Which do you think is farther away..........Florida or the moon?"
The other goober turns and says "Helloooooooooo!!! can you see Florida......?????"
My sister has the courage, but not always the skills, to tackle any home repair project. For example, in her garage are pieces of a lawnmower she once tried to fix. So I wasn't surprised the day my other sister, Pam, and I found our sister attacking her vacuum cleaner with a screwdriver.
"I can't get this thing to cooperate," she explained when she saw us.
Pam suggested, "Why don't you drag it out to the garage and show it the lawnmower?"
A man mentioned to his landlord about the tenants in the apartment over his. "Many a night they stamp on the floor and shout till midnight." When the landlord asked if it bothered him, he replied, "Not really, as I usually stay up and practice my trumpet till about that time most every night anyway."
Students at school were asked to write about the harmful effects of oil on fish.
One 11-year old wrote, "When my mom opened a tin of sardines last night it was full of oil and all the sardines were dead."
Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home in Montreal. As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver.
"You know" he said, "I am 87 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?" The driver said, "No problem. Have at it." Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap. The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone. The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure.
The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down he was surprised to see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor. He told the supervisor, "I know we are supposed to enforce the law but I also know that important people are sometimes given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person."
The supervisor asked, "Is
it the governor?"
The young trooper said, "No, he's more important than that."
The supervisor said, "Oh, so it's the president."
The young trooper said, "No! He's even more important than that."
The supervisor finally asked, "Well then, who is it?"
The young trooper said,
"I think it's Jesus because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!
