“The greatest gift that you can give to others
is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. ”

~ Brian Tracy ~

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

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life, and peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body, and refreshment to your bones. Honor the Lord from your wealth, and from the first of all your produce; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord, or loathe His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He reproves, even as a father, the son in whom he delights. How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. For its profit is better than the profit of silver, and its gain than fine gold. She is more precious than jewels; and nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who hold her fast. The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens. By His knowledge the deeps were broken up, and the skies drip with dew. My son, let them not depart from your sight; keep sound wisdom and discretion, so they will be life to your soul, and adornment to your neck. Then you will walk in your way securely, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; for the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.

Proverbs 3:1-26


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."

Matthew 22:37-38

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2


And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.

Philippians 4:7-9

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Take a look:



When making a textured crochet project it's best to use solid color yarn.
Variegated yarn causes the texture to blend in making it less visible.

RE: crocheted dishcloth

I wanted to let you know I've made several of these dishcloths and love the pattern. It's simple, easy and yet beautiful. I've given some away as gifts and use some my self. I find them to be hard wearing without looking worn.

Thank you so much for sharing.

RE: Spiderweb Table Topper

I cannot tell you how much I love this pattern. I used it with a size 3 (sock weight) yarn to make Spidey webs for a stuffed spider man toy and with the same yarn to make Halloween pincushions. I just want to thank you for making it available!

RE: ABC baby afghan

I made this blanket and my popcorns are beautiful — but on the wrong side. What did I do wrong????

<< Reply >>

You made it correctly.
The puff stitches on this afghan are worked on the wrong side.
When the last step of each puff stitch is worked the puff will be
on the side facing away from you.

Re: How to Crochet - Join with a Half Double Crochet


would it be the same process if I was using the same color only
had to attach a new ball of yarn because I ran out?
Thank you.



If you are joining a new skein or a new color of yarn at the beginning of a row it will be the same process.

To join a new skein or color of yarn in the middle of the row do this:

1) complete the last stitch of the old color without completing the very last step.
2) yarn over with the new color and finish that stitch.
3) continue crocheting with the new color while crocheting over the yarn tail of the old color to secure it.

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.

I'm not much of a gift wrapper, especially compared with the women who work at our shop.
But I was the only one available the day a customer wanted a gift wrapped for his mother.

"Sorry," I said, handing back a box covered with wrinkled, oddly taped paper.
"It's wrapped, but it sure looks like an amateur did it."

"Great," he said happily. "Now my mom will think I did it myself."

Outraged by the high charges that the computer service
wanted for repair work, one employee asked her co-worker
which service she used.

"My sons," was the reply. "They both have degrees in
Computer science."

"So you get that kind of work done for nothing," the
friend marveled.

The co-worker smiled. "Actually, I figured that it cost
me about $140,000 for my kids to fix my computer for

A preacher and a the president of a soap manufacturing
company went for a walk together.

The president said, "What good is religion? Look at all the
trouble and misery of the world! Still there, even after
years, thousands of years, of teaching about goodness and
truth and love and peace. Still there, after all the sermons
and teachings. If religion is good and true, why should this

The preacher said nothing.

They continued walking until he noticed a child playing in
the gutter. Then the preacher said, "Look at that child. You
say that soap makes people clean, but see the dirt on that
youngster. Of what good is soap? With all the soap in the
world, over all these years, the child is still filthy. I
wonder how effective soap is, after all!"

The president of the soap company protested, "But preacher,
soap can't do any good unless it is used!"

"Exactly," replied the preacher. "Exactly."


My son, Scott, an insurance broker in Florida,
loves ocean fishing and takes his cell phone
along on the boat. One morning we were drifting
about ten miles offshore as Scott discussed
business on the phone.

Suddenly his rod bent double, and the reel
screamed as line poured off the spool. Scott
was master of the situation. "Pardon me," he
told his customer calmly. "I have a call on
another line."


One day the school principal was talking to Little Johnny's teacher about his behavior, when all of a sudden Johnny comes running down the hallway. The principal stops Johnny and asks him,
"Why are you running?"

Little Johnny says, "I’m keeping two kids from fighting, sir."

"Who?" asked the principal.

"Me and the kid chasing me!" and off he went.



While standing watch in the Coast Guard station in Juneau, Alaska, I got a call from the Navy in the
nearby city of Adak. They had lost contact with one of their planes, and they needed the Coast Guard to
send an aircraft to go find it.

I asked the man where the Navy aircraft had last been spotted so we would know where to search.

“I can’t tell you,” the Navy man said. “That’s classified.”


My daughter Dauna, had been teaching her Grade 3 and 4 students how pioneer families lived.
They studied pioneer clothes and manners, as well as how they celebrated holidays. Dauna decided to
prepare a pioneer dinner for her classes, with mothers helping to heat and serve the feast.

At the end of the meal, one boy raised his hand.

"Yes, Michael?" Dauna asked.

"Oh, Mrs. Meeks! This was the best dinner I've ever had in my life! You shouldn't be a teacher;
you should be looking after our cafeteria!"

My five-year-old son squealed with delight when he opened his birthday present from his grandmother. It was a water pistol. He promptly ran to the sink to fill it.

"Mom," I said. "I'm surprised at you. Don't you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water pistols?"

My mom smiled and said, "Yes, I remember!


Teacher to a student: "Can you think of a solution to end unemployment?"

"Yes, sir! I'd put all the men on one island and the women on another."

"And what would they be doing then?"

"Building boats!"


I became pregnant with my second child when my son, Denis,
was four years old. Together, we read a book for children
that explained where babies come from.

I ended up having an emergency Caesarian section, so when
I came home from the hospital and Denis kept jumping on
my lap, it hurt.

"Why don't you show him the incision?" my husband asked,
"Then he might understand it better."

I did, explaining that this is where the doctor had cut
the baby out of my tummy.

"Didn't he read the book?" Denis asked, with horrified
look on his face.


The census taker knocked on the lady's door. She answered
all his questions except one: she refused to tell him her

"But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said.

"Did Miss Maisy Hill and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their
ages?" she asked.

"Certainly," he replied.

"Well, I'm the same age as they are," she snapped.

The census taker simply wrote on the form, "As old as the

I guess you can get too health conscious...
As a family, we don't keep "junk food" in the house.

Once when my son was eating a snack at his grandparents'
house, he asked his grandmother what vitamins they had
in them.

She responded that she doubted there were any at all.

He replied wide-eyed, "You mean these are just for fun?"
