"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look
back and realize they were the big things."
- Robert Brault

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.

Isaiah 53:4-6

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."

Matthew 28:1-6

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?

John 11:25

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.

Ephesians 2:8-10



This quote is from Our Daily Bread - April, 2011 Issue

Be careful the environment you choose, for it will
shape you; be careful the friends you choose, for
you will become like them.  - W. Clement Stone

"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there I am in their midst."
Matthew 18:20

I want to thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my email request. These patterns are awesome and I will look and try some of them alpha patterns.

I have another request if you can help. I have been looking for a “onesie” crochet pattern but all I found was one online but it was for a preemie size. Do you know of a pattern with a regular 3-6 or 6-9 months size? If so, I would love to have it to make for my “1st grandbaby” soon to come. Lol

Thanks again for your help.


<< reply >>

I have found a couple of onesie patterns.

This one seems more like a cover-all to me but I think you
could leave off the legs/arms if you wanted to.

and this one says it’s for a preemie but it has instructions on how
to make it newborn size:

Hope this helps. I’m glad I could help you... sometimes I’m quicker
to reply than other times :0)


RE: Row_Count_Paw_Print_Afghan_Square

Good Morning,

I didn’t find an error but I have a question. 
Do you carry the cc on the back? 
Or just drop it until you need it?



<< reply >>

I carry the unused color along the top of the stitches
as I work and I drop the CC where it will be needed again
on the way back on the next row.

I was wondering why no pictures are coming up on your site . I get them on other sites but yours.

Carol Wilber

<< reply >>

I have no idea... I can see the pictures.

RE: Ribbed_Edge_Granny_Baby_Afghan

How many chains do you start with?

<< reply >>

This afghan begins with 4 chains.

R1: Ch4, (work all of the following sts in the 4th ch from the hook)
2dc * Ch1, 3dc.
Rep from * twice more.
Ch1. Join with sl st in top of beg ch4.

RE: The Yarn Market Place


God Bless ! your site is neat.

I ordered and received confirmation on 10 cones of Delft Blue Sugar N
Cream cotton yarn
from The Yarn Market Place. The company operating or utilizing The Yarn
Market Place online site is
Fascinations Worldwide Marketing Inc.
There is no contact information or tracking number in the conformation

Do you know any thing about either of these entities - where they are
located etc?

Many Thanks, Kathaleen

<< reply >>

I recently had another viewer ask me about this company as they too had
a problem with their order. I have removed their link from my Resources
page because of these problems.

Yarn is registered to:

Henderson, Lori

care of Network Solutions
PO Box 459
Drums, PA 18222

according to:

The Yarn Market Place does have a page where you can track if you have an
order number...
not sure why you didn't receive an order number:

This page:

“All orders placed with The Yarn Market Place will be shipped within 24
hours, barring natural disasters or backorders. You should receive your

Im looking for a baby blanket to make for our next grandbaby .... this
would be a one that would be taken from a baby quilt .... it looks like a
square with 4 rounded sides that would fold up from the feet then fold over
from each side and the top one can cover the babys face ... I had a quilt
years ago and have seen one afagan years ago ... do you know of a pattern
that looks like this at all ... I have looked all over and cant find one
like this .... if anyone has one could you please pass it on to me .... this
works so nice were there small and folds in and around the babies so nice

Thanks so much
<< reply >>

I'm trying to imagine what this afghan would look like.
Would you have a picture of the quilt version?

I have a pattern for a Ribbed Edge Granny Baby Afghan here:
that has somewhat rounded corners.

Re: Simple(?) crochet question...?


I have just discovered your website and am thrilled. Being in a bit of a rush and not quickly finding what I was looking for - or maybe not knowing how to even ask the question...

Can you tell me what "crochet around" means. I am uncertain whether it means to crochet the next row using the same number of stiches from the previous, say crocheting 48 stiches if the just-completed round was 48 stiches OR whether I should mark the end of the row and crochet to that marker even if it is not the same number of stiches.

Don't know if I am making any sense but in the past I have repeated the number of stiches in the previous row (48 or 36 or 54 or whatever) even if that means going somewhat beyond where the previous row ended.


MANY thanks...

Mary Pat Kraemer

<< reply >>

Hi Mary:

To '”crochet around” could refer several things.
You can crochet evenly around a project keeping the stitch count
the same as you mentioned.
The designer may instruct you to “crochet around” a stitch.

I would need to see the part of the instruction that ask this in
order to be sure. Is your pattern online?

Re: Chicken_Egg_Cozy

I followed the instructions exactly, but the result was way too small for an egg to go inside. The pattern did not say how to close the long side of the pattern. I used a H hook and added a extra row, and did a sc through both sides of the body.

<< reply >>

How to join the long side was in this part of the instructions:

Fold short ends tog. Sl st in cor sts along short side.
Joining the long side by working a sc in cor sts. Sl st at the end.

The fact that your egg didn’t fit could mean you crochet with a tighter tension than I
do or the size of your egg was different. I used one of the small plastic eggs.
Since changing the hook size didn’t make the size of your cozy larger... try making
your foundation chain longer than 26 chains and then add additional rows.



Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful.

NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.




I have to tell you about this new book.'s Fabulous & Flirty Crochet
I'm so happy to have it in my crochet library.

Katherine Lee has an eye for style and a definite knack for creating beautiful crochet patterns.
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.

"Laughter is an instant vacation." - Milton Berle
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Irving was just coming out of anesthesia after a series of
tests in the hospital, and his wife, Sarah, was sitting at
his bedside. His eyes fluttered open, and he murmured,
"You're beautiful."

Flattered, Sarah continued her vigil while he drifted back
to sleep. Later he woke up and said, "You're cute."

"What happened to 'beautiful'?" Sarah asked.

"I guess the drugs must be wearing off," he replied.

At 1:00 a.m., loading the last of the fishing gear,
Dad realized he had forgotten his car keys on the
kitchen table. We didn't want to wake Mom up,
so I hoisted myself through an unlocked kitchen
window and retrieved the keys.

Trout in hand, we later returned home still laughing
about our "cat burglar" escapade.

"I'm glad you two had such a wonderful time,"
Mom greeted us, "but next time, I wish you'd
remember to lock the front door before leaving."

Little Johnny, after being expelled from his
latest school, was enrolled in a Catholic School.
On his first day in the new school, he went to
the cafeteria for lunch. The children were lined
up patiently getting their lunches.
At the head of the serving line was a large pile
of apples. One of the nuns made a note that
said: "Take only one, God is watching."
Seeing this Little Johnny made a note of his
own and placed it at the other end of the
serving line, in front of a large pile of chocolate
chip cookies.
Little Johnny's note said: "Take all you want,
God is watching the apples."

I used to work in an art supply store. We sold
artists' canvas by the yard, and you could get it
in either of two widths: 36 inches or 48 inches.
Customer: "Can you please cut some canvas
for me?"
Me: "Certainly, what width?"
Customer: (confused and slightly annoyed)

The road by my house was in bad condition. Every day I
dodged potholes on the way to work, so I was relieved to
see a construction crew working on the road one morning.

Later, on my way home, I noticed the men were gone and
no improvement in the road. But where the crew had been
working stood a new, bright-yellow sign with the words
"Rough Road."

Useful Dog

A salesman dropped in to see a business customer. Not a soul was
in the office except a big dog emptying wastebaskets. The salesman
stared at the animal, wondering if his imagination could be playing
tricks on him.

The dog looked up and said, "Don't be surprised. This is just part
of my job."

"Incredible!" exclaimed the man. "I can't believe it. Does your boss
know what a prize he has in you? An animal that can talk!"

"No, no," said the dog. "Please don't tell him.. if he finds out I can
talk, he make me answer the phone."

There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family
Bible to her brother in another part of the country.
"Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal
"Only the Ten Commandments," answered the lady.

Our family was dazzled by the sights and the bustling crowds
during a visit to Manhattan. "This is the city that never sleeps," I
told my eleven-year-old daughter.
     "That's probably because there's a Starbucks on every corner,"
she observed.

Mikey went door to door trick or treating for the first
time this Halloween. At every stop Mom and Dad
would ask, "What do you say?"

And he would reply, "Trick or treat."

A few days later Mikey was in the kitchen and he
asked for some juice. His mom wanted him to
say please, so she asked, "What do you say?"

He replied proudly, "Trick or treat!"

The professor of a graduate-school class of gifted
students included a huge amount of material on the
midterm exam.

Tension in the room built, people were sighing and
gasping aloud as they realized how much material
they had covered and were expected to recall.

The following week the professor tossed the graded
papers on her desk and announced, "Class, after I
left here last week, the Lord spoke to me. He said,
"Thanks, professor. I haven't heard from some of
those people in years!"

We went to the movie the other night. I sat in an aisle seat as
I usually do, because it feels a little roomier. Just as the feature
was about to start a woman from the center of the row got up and
started working her way out.
     "Excuse me, sorry, oops, excuse me, pardon me, gotta hurry,
oops, excuse me." By the time she got to me I was trying to look
around her and I was a little impatient, so I said, "Couldn't you
have done this a little earlier?"
     "No!!" she said in a loud whisper, "The TURN OFF YOUR CELL
PHONE PLEASE message just now flashed up on the screen, and
mine is in the car."

Joe figured out a way to remember his wife's birthday and their
wedding anniversary. He opened an account with a florist and
told him to send flowers to his wife on those dates, along with
a note signed. "Your loving husband."

His wife was thrilled by the attention, and all was great until
one anniversary. Joe came home, saw the bouquet, kissed his wife,
and said, "Nice flowers. Where'd you get them?"
