Dear Subscriber:

This issue has me a little out of my comfort zone.
I've attempted to design a tunisian pattern... the Tunisian Double Stitch Coaster.

I hope I've explained it well.

“Within the covers of the Bible are
the answers for all the problems men face.”

~ Ronald Reagan ~





The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble, and those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; For Thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek Thee.

Psalm 9:9-10


The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Look upon my enemies, for they are many; and they hate me with violent hatred. Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed for I take refuge in Thee.

Psalm 25:17-20

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.

Psalm 46:1-3


Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Psalm 55:22


"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 the 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."

Matthew 6:25-34




This quote is from Our Daily Bread - August, 2020 Issue

"For where two or three
have gathered together in My name,
there I am in their midst."
Matthew 18:20

TUNISIAN CROCHET (a/k/a Afghan Stitch)

Tunisian crochet is a method of crocheting where you work stitches in two parts... a forward pass and a return pass.

The first row of stitches are worked in the hump of each chain.

Tunisian crochet is done using a special hook that is longer than the traditional crochet hook.



The work is always facing you... never turned as in regular crochet.

There are numerous types of tunisian crochet stitches.

One method of stitch placement is working into the vertical bar as shown here:

Vertical Bar Illustration


Note: To practice the tunisian double stitch try making the coaster pattern in this issue.











Get organized!

Keep a small pair of scissors, a tape measure,
a yarn needle and stitch markers
in a zippered pouch. Toss the pouch in your
project bag so everything is easily accessible.

Crochet Tip:
A three ring binder with tabs for:
Home Decor
Toys, etc.
will keep you organized.

When you print a pattern, punch holes in it and add it to your binder in the appropriate section.

I had the local office supply store laminate some of my favorite pattern books that are well used.
They will even spiral bound (not very good English, I know) them. Though having them spiral
bound will not let them be waterproof like those not spiral bound.

I’ve made photocopies of favorite patterns from books I’ve purchased and placed them in sheet protectors also.

Been doing that for years!!

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.

Returning from a trip to visit my grandmother in California,
I was stopped by a state trooper in Kansas for exceeding the
speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of
a ticket, I gave him a small bag of my grandmother's delicious
chocolate-chip cookies and proceeded on my way.

Later, I was stopped by another trooper. "What have I done?"
I asked.

"Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing
out great chocolate-chip cookies."



We were camping with our granddaughters 5- and 3-years-old
at a state park and hiking on one of the trails.

The 5-year-old asked for a walking stick, so I found a limb
on the ground and trimmed off the little stems and such.
Hiking a little further and thinking the 3-year-old would
want one also, I found another limb on the ground that fit
her size and trimmed it down and gave it to her.

After about ten steps of so, she slings the stick out into
the woods and states, "I don't need this, I'm not Moses."


Little Johnny was awaiting the arrival of his piano teacher when his mother inquired, "Little Johnny, did you wash your hands?"

Little Johnny replied, "Yes."

Mother: "And your face?"

Little Johnny: "Yes mother."

Mother: "And did you wash behind your ears?"

Little Johnny: "On her side, I did."


A first-grader came to the ophthalmology office where
I work to have his vision checked. He sat down and I
turned off the lights.

Then I switched on a projector that flashed the letters
F, Z and B on a screen. I asked the boy what he saw.

Without hesitation he replied, "Consonants."



Father William, the old priest, made it a practice to
visit the parish school one day a week. He walked into
the 4th grade class, where the children were studying
the states, and asked them how many states they could
name. They came up with about 40 names. Father William
jokingly told them that in his day students knew the
names of all the states.

One lad raised his hand and said, "Yes sir, but in those
days there were only 13 states."



A grandfather bought a hobby-horse by mail order as a Christmas present for his granddaughter. The toy arrived in 189 pieces.

The instructions said that it could be put together in an hour; however, it took the old man two days to assemble the toy.

Finally, when it was all put together, he wrote a check, cut it into 189 pieces and mailed it to the company.
