Dear Subscriber:

June 15th marked 8 years since my sister, Pam, was killed in a motorcycle accident. Not a day goes by that she isn't thought of.


Hold your loved ones tight! We aren't promised tomorrow.

Even though many businesses have reopened in our town I have not been called back to work yet. I've tried to use this time to complete as many projects as I can. Please send up a prayer for me for the pain and tenderness to go away in my arms. I've been pressure washing, cutting weeds, planting a small garden and painting (all of which require squeezing a trigger and/or having a tight grip) and my arms have been aching. My right arm even bothers me when I use my computer mouse. I appreciate you all so much! Your prayers have helped me and my family through many situations.




Don't forget!

Our newsletters are free.
Newsletter links will be posted on our website as well as on social media.
Please share the newsletter with your friends we would greatly appreciate it.

“Love and compassion are the mother and father of a smile.
We need to create more smiles in our world today.
Smiles, after all, pave the way to a happy world.”
~~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free ~~


“We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.”
~~ Mother Teresa, The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living ~~


“No one has ever become poor by giving."
~~ Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank ~~




The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

And it happened that as He was reclining at the table in the house, behold many tax-gatherers and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, "Why is your Teacher eating with the tax-gatherers and sinners?" But when He heard this, He said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means, I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE, for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Matthew 9:10-13


And as they were going out from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" And the multitude sternly told them to be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, "What do you want Me to do for you?" They said to Him, "Lord we want our eyes to be opened." And moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.

Matthew 20:29-34



For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, "Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?" And the King will answer and say to them, "Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of the, you did it to Me.

Matthew 25:35-40

And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?" And he answered and said, "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." And He said to him, "You have answered correctly; DO THIS, AND YOU WILL LIVE." But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus replied and said, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho; and he fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went off leaving him half dead. And by chance a certain priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him, and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, "Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return, I will repay you." Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?" And he said "The one who showed mercy toward him" And Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same."

Luke 10:25-37

And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word of deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Colossians 3:12-17

(A different crochet stitch and/or tip featured in each issue...
to be added later to the Crochet Basics page)



Don't be afraid to try a pattern because it contains a post stitch.
Post stitches are regular crochet stitches. Their placement is all that makes them different.

FRONT POST STITCH: Insert hook from the front side from right to left around post of st on previous row, complete the indicated stitch.

BACK POST STITCH: Insert hook from the back side from right to left around post of st on previous row, complete the indicated stitch.

Watch the YouTube Video:












Some stitches are worked in the front or back loop of an existing stitch. To remember which loop is the front and which is the back... just think about the front loop being the loop directly in "front" of you. Then you will remember the back loop must be the one farthest away from you..

Subject: Dog_Bandana

Hi, I wanted to communicate with you because when I enter the page to see
the pattern, only the one for the band appears. Is that the only one you
have or is in another place?=

Y. Santiago


<< Reply >>


The pattern on this page:
is for the entire bandana.
Rows 1-3 are the band... Rows 4-end is the rest of the pattern.
Row 5 is repeated to make the bandana come to a point.

Hope this helps.





RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

Re: Crochet Tip:
If you are working on a project using a variegated yarn and run out just a few stitches short of completing the project. Look through your other yarns for a similar color to one of those found in the variegated yarn and use it to complete those last few stitches.

Been there, done that many times - great tip - works well!
Evelyn Mayfield


or pull out a few stitches or part of a row and crochet it a lil bit tighter and you should have enough to finish

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.

"You just go ahead," the man in the shopping mall said
to his wife. "While you're shopping, I'll browse in the
hardware store."

An hour later, she returned and saw him at the checkout
counter. The clerk was ringing up the last of a pile of
tools and supplies that would fill two wheelbarrows.

"Are you buying all this?" his wife asked incredulously.

"Well, yes," he said, embarrassed. Then waving his arm
toward the interior of the store, he added, "But look at
all the stuff I'm leaving behind!"


A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't
been feeling well.

The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back
with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says,
"Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you
get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after
lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill
with another big glass of water."

Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers,
"Jeez doc, exactly what's my problem?"

The Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water."



A teenager who had just received her learner's permit offered to drive her parents to church. After a hair-raising ride, they finally reached their destination.

When the mother got out of the car she said emphatically, "Thank you!"

"Anytime," her daughter replied with a smile.

As her mother headed for the church door, she said, "I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to God."



The second grade teacher read her class the Nativity
story from the Bible. After they heard how baby Jesus
was born in a stable in Bethlehem, the teacher asked:
“And what does the story teach us?”

Without hesitation, one student responded: “That you
don’t have to be born in a hospital."



Two paramedics were dispatched to check on an elderly man
who had become disoriented. They decided to take him to
the hospital for evaluation.

En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to
determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one asked,
"Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?"

The old man slowly looked up at him, then gazed out the
ambulance window.

"Oh," he replied, "I'd say about 50, maybe 55."


There’s a story about a little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the Preacher's sermon this morning confused me."

The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?"

The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?"

"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.

"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true, too?"

Again the mother replied, "Yes."

"Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"
