WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
But you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; whta persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord delivered me!
2 Timothy 3:10-11
Hear a just cause, O Lord, give heed to my cry; give ear to my prayer, which is not from deceitful lips. Let my judgment come forth from Thy presence; let Thine eyes look with equity. Thou hast tried my heart; Thou hast visited me by night; Thou hast tested me and dost find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress. As for the deeds of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept from the paths of the violent. My steps have held fast to Thy paths. My feet have not slipped. I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me, O God; incline Thine ear to me, hear my speech. Wondrously show Thy lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Thy right hand from those who rise up against them.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.
"IF GOD DIDN'T HAVE A PURPOSE FOR US, WE WOULDN'T BE HERE."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - July, 2004 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there
I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

Fill in the blank!
(According to James 1:23-24)
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a ____, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.

If you know of any stitch I have omitted from our basics pages please drop me a line.
I have been surfing the internet and looking for simple instructions on how to make a double crochet stitch. All sites I've found have only single instructions. Can you help me? Eileen
The Double Crochet is as follows:
Yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, yarn over again and pull up a loop.
(You should have three loops on your hook.) Yarn over again and draw through two of the loops on the hook. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over again and draw through the last two of the loops on the hook.
You can find this and many more stitch abbreviations and instructions on my Basic page:

If you like to design crochet patterns... you need to make a list.
Use index cards to list things you would like to design. The list
will help you remember what you wanted to design which helps
you not waste time trying to decide what to make next.

Instructions. I've been trying to learn to crochet for years but get confused with every source I try. Your instructions seem easy enough for even me to follow and I'm looking forward to beginning a project soon.
Thanks for this site.

Excellent web site. I love coming here every evening. I am going to sign up for your newsletter. Don't ever stop!!!
I subscribe to your crochet magazine, and I read EVERY bit of it! Thank
you so much for having such a well organized, easy to read newsletter! I especially like
your prayer list, because I know prayer works!!! Thank you also for the verses...God bless you!
I have been to this site before but did not sign the book. However this time I found something that I was very glad to see. And that is the part that shows a lost person how to become a christian, and the other bible related materials. I am a born again christian by faith, and a Southern Baptist by choice. This is the kind of thing that should be in all websites. Thank you and God Bless you.

* 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?

A young executive was leaving the office at 6pm when he found
the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) standing in front of a
shredder with a piece of paper in hand.
"Listen," said the CEO, "this is important, and my secretary
has left. Can you make this thing work?"
"Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine
on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared
inside the machine. "I just need one copy."

A shoplifter was caught red-handed trying to steal a watch from
an exclusive jewelry store.
"Listen," said the shoplifter, "I know you don't want any
trouble either. What do you say I just buy the watch and we

The manager agreed and wrote up the sales slip.
The crook looked at the slip and said, "This is a little more
