God, grant me the Serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the Courage to change the one I can, and the Wisdom to know it's me!
"For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and tthe body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 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.
WE PUT OUR CARES IN GOD'S HANDS,
HE PUTS HIS PEACE IN OUR HEART."

If you don't
have enough yarn to finish your project and upon visiting the store you find
that particular yarn has been discontinued,. try posting a request for the yarn
on the crochet message boards. Many crocheters, like myself, have crates and
bags full of yarn that was purchased years back and we just may have the skein
you need to finish your project.

Thank-you, Lisa. These are very pretty. God bless. Emmy
I've tried everything i know - i can't print the graph to a single page. it always breaks up onto 2 pages. that would be annoying when crocheting - to follow a graph over 2 pages. any suggestions? susan norstrud
At first the graph wouldn't print at all. I finally got the pattern page fixed so the graph would print and to be honest I'm afraid to try changing anything for fear of it not printing again. All you have to do is tape one page to the other so the graph is in one piece.
RE: John Deere Tractor Pattern
I am looking for this crochet pattern. do you happen to have one? Thanks, Jean

and Marlo has a free John Deere Tractor Stocking pattern here: http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/john%20deere%20tractor.html
Thank you so much! I had actually figured it out a couple of days after I emailed you...I just kept fooling around with it until it turned out right. I haven't crocheted since I was a kid, and even then, just did basic stitches and never really followed a pattern. I am well on my way to completing my first afghan! My daughter is excited (because it is for her). I found you site to be very informative, and I appreciate your help! Thank you for taking the time to reply!
Blessings to you also, Rebekah
I haven't had the chance to try your No Sew Towel Topper yet, but I still wanted to thank you for sharing such a great pattern. Annette
Hi Lisa, I'm sorry, but I didn't understand just reading through the directions of your pattern, how do you attach the towel? It does take me a bit sometimes to get it through my head. It is a very pretty pattern. Annette
<< reply >>
That's the easy part! Just fold the towel over length wise and insert it into the loop made in the pattern. When the towel gets dirty just take the dirty towel out and put a new one in.
Hi Lisa, just stopping by for a visit, your site is one of my favorites, I always enjoy the patterns and your newsletter. Keep up the wonderful work!
to whom it may concern; i recently tried & completed the dishcloth & hanging dish towel. my only question is on the buttons that go on row 15 for the towel what size in diameter should i buy & where do the buttons come thru crochet? your webpage is great! thanks for your help. pego
<< reply >>
I didn't realize I hadn't included that information. Those buttons were small, probably about 1/2" buttons. Since tension differs from one crocheter to another, try experimenting with various size buttons. As long as it will fit through the button hole pretty snuggly it's fine. For instance, you can button the topper to a button on a garment and if it works well, measure the button. Hope this helps.
Just wanted to thank you for your website. I have made many afghans now using your Lisa's Granny Square pattern. I just keep going until I get it to the size I want - works great for baby afghans, as it is an easy pattern to do and can be finished quickly if needed. Thank you again!
Very nice site! Missi
I was looking for some
different patterns your site is just simply grand Thanks!
I have just learned to knit and have made quite a few of the scarfs using the "Fun Fur". Can someone tell me something else to make using these great fun furs. Thanks! Vickie
<< reply >>
I love the specialty yarns and have seen many items made using them, including purses, sweaters, ponchos,belts, etc. I mostly crochet so I only use these yarns for trims because it's so difficult to see the actual stitches. You might try these patterns:

I was testing the children in my Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to Heaven. I asked them, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, Would that get me into Heaven?"
"NO!" the children answered.
"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?"
Again, the answer was, "NO!"
By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun!
"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?"
I asked them again. Again, they all answered, "NO!" I was just bursting with pride for them.
Well, I continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?"
A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD."

and Dieting Tips
In dire need of a beauty make-over, I went to my salon with a fashion magazine photo of a gorgeous, young, lustrous-haired model. I showed the stylist the trendy new cut I wanted and settled into the chair as he began humming a catchy tune and got to work on my thin, graying hair. I was delighted by his cheerful attitude until I recognized the melody. It was the theme from "Mission: Impossible."
My friend, the manager of a grocery store, nabbed a shoplifter in the act. He was escorting the suspect to the office in the front of the store (near the cash registers), when the shoplifter broke from his grip and tried to run.
After a scuffle, my friend pinned him against the wall and looked up to see a number of surprised customers staring at him.
"Everything's fine, Folks," he reassured them. "This guy just tried to go through the express line with more than ten items."
There once was a rich man who was near death. He was very grieved because he had worked so hard for his money and he wanted to be able to take it with him to heaven. So he began to pray that he might be able to take some of his wealth with him.
An angel hears his plea and appears to him. "Sorry, but you can't take your wealth with you."
The man implores the angel to speak to God to see if He might bend the rules.
The man continues to pray that his wealth could follow him. The angel reappears and informs the man that God has decided to allow him to take one suitcase with him. Overjoyed, the man gathers his largest suitcase and fills it with pure gold bars and places it beside his bed.
Soon afterward the man dies and shows up at the Gates of Heaven to greet St. Peter. Seeing the suitcase, St. Peter says, "Hold on, you can't bring that in here!"
But, the man explains to St. Peter that he has permission and asks him to verify his story with the Lord.
Sure enough, St. Peter checks and comes back saying, "You're right. You are allowed one carry-on bag, but I'm supposed to check its contents before letting it through."
St. Peter opens the suitcase to inspect the worldly items that the man found too precious to leave behind and exclaims, "You brought pavement!!!???"
A fellow computer programmer for a consulting group had designed some software for one of our largest accounts. He asked my help in putting it into operation.
At first, he handled most of the work. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training. When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her how to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. "I'm so glad you're teaching me instead of him."
Surprised, I said that my colleague was far more experienced than I was.
"Yes," she said, "but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get nervous around really smart people."
While on recess duty at the elementary school where I teach, I was talking with several second-graders about what they wanted to be when they grew up. Rhonda said that she was planning to be a nun.
"But, Rhonda," I protested, "last week you said you were going to be President." Giving me her most withering look, she retorted, "I can have two jobs if I want to."
A woman was getting swamped
with calls from strangers.
The reason? A billing service had launched an 800 number that was identical to hers.
When she called to complain, she was told to get a new number.
"I've had mine for twenty years," she pleaded. "Couldn't you change yours?"
The company refused, so
she said, "Fine. From now on,
I'm going to tell everyone who calls that their bill is paid in full."
The company got a new number the next day.
