WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth. And fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
For thus says the Lord, "Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; and you shall be nursed, you shall be carried on the hip and fondled on the knees. As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem." Then you shall see this, and your heart shall be glad, and your bones shall flourish like the new grass; and the hand of the Lord shall be made known to His servants, but He shall be indignant toward His enemies.
"Let's praise the Lord for mothers who no only care for their children
physically but also nurture them spiritually. Mothers like that are indispensable!"
Herb Vander Lugt (Writer for Our Daily Bread)
"NO MAN IS POOR WHO HAS HAD A GODLY MOTHER."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - May, 2004 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there
I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

I added a clear or iridescent bead to the end of the icicle ornament. It made it look like it was melting.You have to remember to slide the bead on the yarn before making the chain. I made over 100 of them this Christmas and gave them to my family and friends. Thanks for the pattern. It was simple and quick.

Thanks Lisa for the note about the bogus e-mails. I have been getting
them from Juno (who is my ISP) and Microsoft and others. I never open an
e-mail with an attachment unless I absolutely know the person.
Keep up the good work on the Crochet Newsletter, I love it and since I
crochet for a lot of charities, I find some good patterns on your site.
God Bless you and yours
NOTE: The note about emails was in the April 30th issue.
Ohmigosh!!! I love the Lid Grabber Hat pattern!!! I just bought myself new cookware and found out the lids get kinda hot (found that out the hard way) so I really NEED this pattern!!! Wow, thanks a whole lot!
Love the newsletter....keep up the great work.
<<< reply >>>
You're very welcome.
The reason I designed this pattern was the fact I kept
touching my lids without a potholder... granted I kept
turning them loose very quickly also :0)
You can leave the lid grabber hat on the lid knob and not
worry about it falling off and catching fire on a burner.
I need to make a few more :0) These are great for gifts
also if you know a person has lids with the round knobs.
Thanks for writing and have a glorious day in Christ!
I was so tickled to find your web site! I am just a beginner........with
a very limited amount of time to pursue a craft that I truly admire..............But I will keep
plugging along, your website was such an encouragement! Do you have a suggestion for
a simple project for a real novice????? Something that I could really master in a short time??
Thank you so much for a very pleasant and encouraging "visit."

* My Pet Peeve:
By Cylinda Mathews
My personal pet peeve is to find an error at the very end of
a big pattern. About 6 years ago, I chose a lovely tablecloth
pattern from either a Magic or Decorative Crochet magazine
to make for my mom. On the last two rnds, after months of
working on this cloth, I found an error. Because these patterns
are in symbol crochet, and the edge of the cloth was hidden in
the picture, I had to design my own edging. My other pet peeve
is an error at the very beginning. If you can't figure it out, or
contact the designer, you can't even begin!
What's your pet peeve?

Two factory workers were talking. "I know how to get some time off from work." said the man.
"How do you think you will do that?" said the other one. He proceeded to show her...by climbing up to the rafters, and hanging upside down.
The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked him what on earth he was doing? "I'm a light bulb" answered the guy.
"I think you need some time off," said the boss. So, the man jumped down and walked out of the factory. The second worker began walking out too. The boss asked her where did she think she was going?
"Home. I can't work in the dark."
Johnny had just received his brand new drivers license. The
family goes out to the driveway and climbs in the car, where he
is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad
immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the new
"I'll bet you're back there to get a change of scenery after
all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat
teaching me how to drive," says the beaming boy to the his dad.
"Nope," comes dad's reply, "I'm gonna sit here and kick the
back of your seat as you drive, just like you've been doing to
me all these years!"
Our seven-year-old daughter was thrilled when we took her to Disney
World for the first time, and she headed straight for Space Mountain.
I worried that the roller coaster would be too scary for her, but she
To her delight, we rode it twice.
The next year we returned to the Magic Kingdom, and my daughter, now
eight, again dragged me to Space Mountain.
As we stood in line, though, I could see her soberly studying the signs
that warn about the ride's speed.
"Dad," she said, "I don't think I want to go."
I asked her why she would be nervous when she had enjoyed herself last
She replied, "This year, I can read."
David filled his car with gas at a self-service gas station.
After he had paid and driven away, he realized that he had left the gas
cap on top of his car. He stopped and looked and, sure enough, it was
Well, he thought for a second and realized that other people must have
done the same thing, and that it was worth going back to look by the
side of the road since even if he couldn't find his own gas cap, he
might be able to find one that fit.
Sure enough, he hadn't been searching long when he found a gas cap. He
tried it on, and it went into place with a satisfying click.
"Great," David thought, "I lost my gas cap, but I found another one that
And this one's even better because it locks ..."
We purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters. Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared.
One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.
"For the past 30 years," he muttered, "they've gone to Florida for the winter."
FARMER JONES bought a donkey, but he couldn't get the donkey into his barn because its ears would hit the top of the door, at which point the donkey would stop and refuse to go any further.
Not to be outdone, Farmer Jones carefully cut out two big notches above the door so the donkey's ears could pass through. A neighbor who'd been watching all of these goings-on asked Farmer Jones why he didn't just dig a trench in the dirt floor instead.
"Because," replied Farmer Jones, "it wasn't his feet that were the problem--it was his ears."
A PROUD FATHER called the local newspaper to report the birth of twins. The operator didn't quite understand the message and asked, "Will you repeat that?"
"Not if I can help it!" replied the new dad.
A new hair salon opened up for business right across the street from the
old established hair cutters' place.
They put up a big bold sign which read:
"WE GIVE SEVEN DOLLAR HAIR CUTS!"
Not to be outdone, the old Master Barber put up his own sign:
"WE FIX SEVEN DOLLAR HAIR CUTS"
