WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
So shall My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. For you will go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up; and instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up; and it will be a memorial to the Lord, for an everlasting sign which will not be cut off.
He therefore began saying to the multitudes who were going out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bring forth fruits in keeping with repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham for our father,' for I say to you that God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. And also the axe is already laid at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." And the multitudes were questioning him, saying, "Then what shall we do?" And he would answer and say to them, "Let the man who has two tunics share with him who has none; and let him who has food do likewise."
Again the next day John was standing with two of his disciples, and he looked upon Jesus as He walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. And Jesus turned, and beheld them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to Him, "Rabbi (which translated means teacher), where are You staying?" He said to them, "Come, and you will see." They came therefore and saw where He was staying; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He found first his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which translated means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "You are Simon the son of John; you shall be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).
"INSTEAD OF GIVING UP ON A PERSON, GIVE THAT PERSON TO GOD."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - July, 2004 Issue.

together in My name, there
I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

Hello. I have just crocheted the sweater from your pattern online, and my beagle Princess looks adorable in it. I was wondering if you had any more designs? Thank you.

Re: Crocheted Broomstick Square
I made the Broomstick Square and found no errors. The directions were easy to follow. I used a size 35 knitting needle for the broomstick and was able to easily block the piece to a 7-inch square. I plan to try again with a slightly larger dowel to see if I can get the lace a little "loopier".
Thanks for making this pattern available.
I want you to know that I enjoy this letter
emensely!! It is a blessing and a great help to me. I
also enjoy most of the patterns, some of them are
really cute and my family enjoys what I make and give
them for special occassions. Again Thank You and may
the Lord Bless You each and every day!!!!
Sincerely, Mary Wilson
I just wanted to email you and let you know that I did it! I am so proud of
myself! This is a big accomplishment. I am not an experienced crocheter! (if
that is the term) I usually stick with simple baby blankets and easy one
stictch afgans. I was totally determined that I was going to do this. Once I
started last night with this project I didnt stop until I was finished. I
have a Rat Terrier and she weighs 8 lbs (she is 3yrs old) and She looks
soooo cute in her new sweater I made for her. Such gratification. I cant
wait to buy more yarn and make her more.. Thank you for your pattern...
I really enjoyed browsing through your web site. You did a great job. I printed your pattern for the ripple rug. Am anxious to get started on it. It is nice to know there are other people who love to crochet too!
RE: Misplaced Pattern Links
Lisa, I copied a pattern from the June 14,2004 newsletter. It is the wagonwheel doily. You had a repeat of the pattern because someone found a mistake in the design. I ran out of ink so I could not copy it and dumb me did not save it. Now I can't find it on your patterns, I looked several places. Did you take it off? Could you let me know? I love your newsletter and patterns and the whole thing. God Bless, JUDY
Thanks for writing. I'm glad you enjoy my patterns and newsletter.
I never remove patterns.

* 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?

In my job with a credit union, I often run across accounts that are
protected by password.
The credit-union member, when withdrawing funds, must produce
identification and then give the password to the teller.
Recently, when I asked a woman for her password, she sighed, rolled
her eyes and replied, "Save."
I was puzzled until she explained, "My husband put in that password so
I'd have to say it every time I make a withdrawal."
A mother mouse was out for a stroll with her babies
when she spotted a cat crouched behind a bush.
She watched the cat, and the cat watched the mice.
Mother mouse barked fiercely, "Woof, woof, woof!"
The cat was so terrified that it ran for it's life.
Mother mouse turned to her babies and said,
"Now, do you understand the value of a second language?"
I knew my career was coming to an end when my company sent me to Dr.
Kevorkian for my annual physical.
A husband and wife enter a dentist`s office. The Wife says, "I want a
tooth pulled. I don`t want gas or novocain because I`m in a terrible
hurry. Just pull the tooth as quickly as possible."
"You`re a brave woman," says the dentist, "Now, show me which tooth it
The wife turns to her husband and says "Open your mouth and show the
dentist which tooth it is, dear."
Why did the goober take one glass full of water and one cup that is empty to bed
Because he didn't know if he'd be thirsty or not.
After a lengthy conference with the estranged husband, the lawyer
reported to his client: "Jill, I have succeeded in making a
settlement with your husband that is eminently fair to both of you."
"Fair to both!?!" exploded Jill. "I could have done that myself.
Why do you think I hired a lawyer?"
A bride called to make a change to her wedding registry.
It is common, almost expected, that a bride will change
something on her registry at least once (dishes, color of towels,
etc.). The Customer Service Representative told her
that J.C. Penney would be happy to make the change. He asked if the
bride wanted to change the dishes or the linens.
The bride said, "No, keep all that. I just wanted to change the name of the groom."
