“One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to
forgive everybody, everything, every night before you
go to bed.”

~ Bernard M. Baruch ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel: to know wisdom and instruction, to discern the sayings of understanding, to receive instruction in wise behavior, righteousness, justice and equity; to give prudence to the naive, to the youth knowledge and discretion, a wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel, to understand a proverb and a figure, the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:1-7


For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:16

And He said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 22:37-40

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all possessions to feed the poor and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous, love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.

1 Corinthians 13:1-8


If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Phillipians 2:1-4

Re: Baby Beanie

I hope I've sent this email to the correct place. If not, I apologize in advance. I wanted to say that I really appreciate the tutorial on your personally designed baby beanie. It's simply precious. I've searched for a baby beanie to crochet, & Yours is so pretty. I want to crochet some of the beanies, & I'd also like to crochet some for preemies. How would I modify the pattern to fit a preemie size?
Thanks for your time!

<< reply >>

Yes, this is the correct place to email.
I’m glad you enjoyed the baby beanie pattern... I have a preemie

Re: How to Crochet - Double Ruffled Edge


How would you do the corners of a granny square with this?
Rachel Howe

<< reply >>

For a granny square or any other motif that includes chain spaces along the edge I would work single crochet stitches evenly around the entire motif first... then work the double ruffle.

Re: Lacy_Summer_Scarf

I am going to make your summer Scarf for myself.
I am a large woman and would like to increase the width.
Can you please tell me in what multitudes I would have to do that?

<< Reply >>

The width of the Lacy Summer Scarf pattern can be adjusted by
making your foundation chain a multiple of 5 + 2.

Enjoy the pattern!


RE: Ribbed_Boutique_Tissue_Cover

The pattern mentions the "hump." What is that? It's a term I've never heard.

Thank you!

Mary Pat

<< reply >>

Each chain has a top loop and a bottom loop on the front side
and on the back there is a little hump.

When you make the foundation chain (the chains made to begin your
project) the front side of the chain will look like little hearts sitting
on top of each other. When you flip the chain over to the back side
it looks like a little row of humps... work into those humps.

I specify to work in the "hump of the chain" in many of my patterns.

How to Start a Tutoring Business



Threads N Stitches



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.

My friend Bob was trying to teach his daughter, Jenny, how to say grace before meals. After a few weeks of coaching, Bob decided Jenny was ready to say grace all by herself.

Jenny started out fine, thanking God for her mommy and daddy and brother and sister and for the rolls and the salad, etc. She ended with a big, "Thank you, God, for the spaghetti!" and lifted her head.

The tradition in Bob's house, though, was to end each prayer with "In Jesus' name, Amen." So Bob prompted Jenny, "In … "

At first, Jenny seemed confused. Then she proudly exclaimed, "In tomato sauce. Amen."



A man took his son fishing one day. After a few
hours in the boat with not much to do, the son
started asking his father some questions.

"How does the boat float?" he asked.

The man thought about the question for a moment,
then said, "I don't really know, son."

"Well, how do fish breath underwater?"

The man scratched his head. "I guess I don't
know the answer to that one either."

"Why is the sky blue?" the boy persisted.

The father replied, "I really don't know, son."

The boy started to worry that his father was
getting upset at all the questions. "Do you
mind me asking questions, Dad?"

His father immediately reassured him. "No, of c
ourse not, son! If you don't ask questions, you'll
never learn anything!"


My son Ward owns a shiny green four-wheel-drive truck. He
also owns a 110-pound black labrador named Tony.

On trips, the dog generally sits on a platform behind the
driver's seat, resting his huge head on Ward's shoulder as
they travel cheek-to-cheek. Ward did not give this cozy
arrangement a second thought until the day he took Tony with
him on a trip to Montana.

While listening to his CB radio, Ward overheard one trucker
remark to another, "See the little green four-wheeler you're
about to pass? When you go by him, take a good look -- see
if that's really a dog driving."

At 3 AM in the morning, a young wife shook her
husband awake.

Groggily he asked "What is it?"

"The baby," she reminded him.

The husband sat up and listened intently.
I don't hear her crying," he protested.

"I know, and it's your turn to see why not!"


Although a bright and able man, my husband is almost
completely helpless when faced with even the simplest
domestic chore.

One day, in exasperation. I pointed out to him that
our friend, Bea had taught her husband, Frank, to
cook, sew and do laundry, and that if anything ever
happened to Bea, Frank would be able to care for

Then I said, "What would you do if anything happened
to me?"

After considering that possibility for a moment, my
husband said happily, "I'd move in with Frank."

On the first day of school, the teacher greeted the
children and asked their names and ages. When it
came Bennie's turn, he held up four fingers.

"Oh, you're 4," said the teacher. "And when will
you be 5?"

The child stared at her and after a few seconds

replied, "When I hold up the other finger."

Two women were discussing marriage, and one said,
"We've been married twenty-five years, and every
night my husband has complained about the food.
Not one night without complaining about the food."

The other woman said, "That's awful. Doesn't it
bother you?"

The first one said, "Why should I object if he
doesn't like his own cooking?"



On a family vacation one summer, we crossed Wyoming

and noted several historical points of interest. The

children were especially interested because they

enjoyed the computer game "Oregon Trail," which gives

players a taste of the hardships the pioneers endured.

We stopped at the famous South Pass to look at the

wagon tracks still visible in the dirt.

Squinting out over the desolate, wind-swept landscape,

my daughter nodded and said grimly, "This is where my

oxen always die."


Little Johnny's mother was having difficulty
gulping down the birthday cake he had made for
her as a surprise.

When she was finished, Little Johnny happily
exclaimed, "I'm so glad you like it, Mommy.
There should have been 32 candles on the cake,
but they were all gone when I took it out of
the oven."


The doctor suggested that my husband, because of his back
problems, not sleep on our waterbed. When we discussed what
type of bed should replace it, Dave said he wanted a firm
mattress on a queen-size bed. I preferred a softer mattress
in a double size, and as our discussion grew more heated, it
became obvious we would have difficulty reaching agreement.

Then our young son, who had overheard our conversation,
suggested, "Why don't you just get bunk beds?"


On a curvy mountain highway late one night, my dad
was complaining about the car behind us. "That guy
must be drunk!" he said.

"Every time I move over to let him pass, he slows down.
When I get back on the road, he gets closer and stays
on my tail."
A few minutes later, the car turned on a set of flashing
blue lights. Coming up to our window, the officer said,
"Sir, I'd like you to take an alcohol test. You've been
swerving on and off the road for the last fifteen minutes!"

Little Benjamin came running into the kitchen where is
mother was working.
"Mom, can I please change my name right now?" he asked.
"But why would you want to do that?" replied his mom.
"Because Dad said he's going to spank me as sure as my
name's Benjamin!"
