“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
~~ Corrie ten Boom ~~


“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~



"I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins."


John 8:24


Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:1-2


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. .

Galatians 5:22-23

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10


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 nto made out of things which are visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

have gathered together in My name,
there I am in their midst."

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



For any project that requires a foundation row of all half double crochets you can use Foundation Half Double Crochets. In other words, instead of making a series of chain stitches and then working a half double crochet into each chain you work a series of FHDC stitches.

To begin a Foundation Half Double Crochet row, Chain 3.

Yarn over
Insert hook into the third chain from the hook
yarn over and draw a loop through (3 lps on hook)
chain 1 (3 lps still on hook)
yarn over and draw through all three loops to finish the foundation half double crochet.
Yarn over
Insert hook into last chain made,
yarn over and draw a loop through. (3 lps on hook)
Chain 1. (3 lps still on hook)
Yarn over and draw through all three loops to finish the foundation half double crochet.

Repeat from the asterisk * for as many stitches as you need for your project.


Watch the video:







Keep a small pocket calendar in your project bag.
Each time you finish a project, enter the project name on the date you finished it.
It will amaze you to look back at how much you accomplish over the course of a year.

Crochet Tip:
When you find a crochet pattern online that you like it's a good idea to add a bookmark to the web page in order to locate it again in the future. Keep in mind that websites come and go continuously and you may find that a pattern you bookmarked has disappeared. When possible, go ahead and print that pattern. If you do not have a printer you can use a printer service at your local library.

i copy and paste to notepad on my computer and save all my crochet patterns in a folder.

Deb Dacus


Save paper and only print the pattern when you need it. If it's a pattern that you can't just download because it doesn't have a download you can still make a copy of it. Most tablets have the facility to convert a web page to a PDF which you can save or if on a computer copy/screenshot (whatever works for you) and paste into a word document, then save as PDF. I save mine on a memory stick for quick access but also back up every month on to a DVD, for saftey. But PLEASE be mindful of copyright and respect the designers rights & give all due credit to them.

Donna Wearne


i clip the webpage to evernote.. cause as you say webpages come and go. several other clippers exist - one note etc. but there's no wasted paper and i can access or notate the pattern from any device, phone, tablet, computer.

Crochet Tip:

You can add a button hole in a project by making chains and skipping stitches along the row where you want the button hole.


<< Comments >>

A couple double croche (dc) might work too. You can insert the button between them. I’ve used half-double (hdc) for baby projects. You might have to adjust the pattern slightly for that row.

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.

My wife and her friend Karen were talking about their labor-saving devices as they pulled into our driveway. Karen said, "I love my new garage-door opener." "I love mine too," my wife replied, and honked the horn three times. That was the signal for me to come out and open the garage.


A young child was having a physical examination before entering school. The doctor asked him,
"Have you ever had any trouble with your ears and nose?"

"Sure," answered the boy, "They always get in my way when I take off my T-shirt."



When ferrying workers back and forth from our offshore oil rig, the helicopter I was on lost power and went down. Fortunately, it landed safely in a lake. Struggling to get out, one man tore off his seat belt, inflated his life vest and jerked open the exit door.

"Don't jump!" the pilot called out. "This thing is supposed to float!"

As the man leapt from the helicopter into the lake, he yelled back, "Yeah, and it's supposed to fly too!"



The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot 's wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, 'My Mommy looked back once while she was driving,' he announced triumphantly, 'and she turned into a telephone pole!'


Little Johnnie was bothered with a question that he had to ask his Sunday School teacher.

"Miss Davis, are there any animals in heaven?"

"I'm not sure Johnny, answered the teacher, The Bible doesn't say anything about animals in heaven."

"Oh, there's got to be animals in heaven", insisted Johnny.

"What makes you think so?" says the teacher.

"Well....every time there's a thunderstorm, my father says it's raining cats and dogs!"


One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?"

The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't, Dear," she said, "I have to sleep with your daddy."

A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: "The big sissy."
