“If you love people, you have no desire to judge them.”
~~ Steve Goodier ~~



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


And as Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man, called Matthew, sitting in the tax office; and He said to him, "Follow Me!" And He rose, and followed Him. And it happened that as He was reclining at the table in the house, behold many tax-gatherers and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, "Why is your Teacher eating with the tax gatherers and sinners?" But when he heard this, He said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means, 'I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Matthew 9:9-13


Now one of the Pharisees was requesting Him to dine with him. And He entered the Pharisee's house, and reclined at the table. And behold, there was a woman in the city who was a sinner; and when she learned that He was reclining at the table in the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster vial of perfume. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet He would know who and what sort of person this woman is who is touching Him, that she is a sinner. And Jesus answered and said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he replied, "Say it, Teacher." "A certain moneylender had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they were unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him more?" Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more." And He said to him, "You have judged correctly." And turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume. For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little." And He said to her, "Your sins have been forgiven." And those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to themselves, "Who is this man who even forgives sins?" And He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."

Luke 7:36-50

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. And the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the midst, they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?" And they were saying this, testing Him, in order that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with His finger wrote on the ground. But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." And again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And when they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst. And straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?" And she said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go your way. From now on sin no more."

John 8:1-11

When I tie on a new color sometimes I tie a knot (not recommended by most
crocheters as it leaves a little bump in your work) and then I weave in the
old color by working it back into the stitches of the same color. You can
crochet right over the ends of the yarn tails if they are both the same
color. If
not, crochet over the tail of the color you are working with and
then use a different weaving method to weave in the old color that you just
fastened off.

You can weave the old color in with a crochet hook or a yarn needle. The
yarn needle is quicker and you can weave the strand in without disturbing
the stitches.

Some projects require you to make two identical pieces (booties, slippers, etc).
Make both pieces at the same time to ensure they turn out the same.

RE: Spiderweb_Table_Topper

LOVE this pattern!
It is necessary for me to share the following.

My daughter's coworkers asked for webs of different colors for different seasons. Now they have a red web and green webs along with the standard Halloween web. Also, they have added a spider which is dressed for the different holidays. Thanks for this pattern which I resurrected after many years in my binder!!

Re: BasicsPage

What does this mean?
Rotate your foundation chain so you can now work the sts on the opposite side,


<< Reply >>

Working in the sts on the opposite side means you will work into the free loops up the other side of the foundation chain.
This video shows how to work into the unworked loops of a foundation chain:


Hope this helps.

RE: How to Crochet : Table Runner Tutorial


<< Comments >>

If I want to make it wider, is it an even number of chains?
Patty Herpel

<< Reply >>

To make the table runner pattern wider, you can increase the foundation chain in a multiple of 5 stitches until you get the width you want.

RE: How to Crochet: Writing on Single Crochet Fabric with Slip Stitches

   << Comments >>

Thank you, I have been looking for a video like this and finally found one.
I have one question, how do you know how much yarn you will need per letter?
I know it depends on size.

<< Reply >>

You're welcome. These letters shouldn't take very much yarn at all. Letter size, as well as how many letters you need to make, will definitely be a factor in determining how much yarn you will need. Sorry, but there's no way for me to determine each person's individual yarn amounts.

I don't crochet but was looking for a pattern for my ninety four year old Mother.
She had long ago given up all of her books and patterns and her Granddaughter asked for a square of her work that she could frame.

Thank you for sending newsletter, If I see anything that will interest Mom I'll forward onto her through the USPS.

You can find a page full of links to afghan square patterns, many of which would be suitable for framing, on this page:

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.

There was a young guy in our credit union opening his first
checking account. He filled out the various forms and chose
the style of checks he wanted.

"One more thing," I said, pointing to the top of the form
he'd just completed. "Is this how you want your name and
address printed on your checks?"

"No," he said. "I want it printed neater."


It was Christmas day, and we had all gathered for the holiday meal at the home of my husband's parents. After dessert, my mother-in-law left the table and returned carrying a bowl filled with slips of paper.

Each adult was instructed to take one. Excited, we did so, wondering what surprise she had
thought up for us. My slip of paper instructed me to dry the dishes; another person was told to wash them. Others had to do pots and pans, etc.

Then, with all the parents out of the way, Grandma and Grandpa went into the living room and enjoyed their grandchildren.


"What is that sound?" a woman asked at our nature center.

"It's the frogs trilling for a mate," Patti, the naturalist,
explained. "We have a pair in the science room. But since
they've been together for so long, they no longer sing to
each other."

The woman nodded sympathetically, "The trill is gone."


The doctor answered the phone and heard the familiar voice of a colleague on the other end of the line.

"We need a fourth for poker," said the friend.

"I'll be right over," whispered the doctor.

As he was putting on his coat, his wife asked, "Is it serious?"

"Oh yes, quite serious," said the doctor gravely. "There are three doctors there already!"


Katelyn, 3, was being watched by her Uncle Juan while Dawn
and her husband went on a much-needed date.

Katelyn was playing chase the dog around the house. She
tripped over the dog and got an "owie" on her knee.

He didn't see any type of injury, but Uncle Juan kissed it
to make it better.

Katelyn said it felt better, but two Oreo cookies would make
it feel much better.


A friend's daughter received an adorable airport
play set as a gift.

Since some assembly - actually, a lot of assembly -
was required, her husband spent much of the day
putting together the plane, the control tower, the
runway, the little baggage chute, and arranging the
pieces into a teeny tiny air hub.

As he finished up, his wife noticed he was frantically
digging around in the box, checking all the packing

"You are not going to believe this," he said.
"The one piece missing... is the luggage!"


Because of an ear infection, my young son, Casey, had to go to the pediatrician. I was impressed with the way the doctor directed his comments and questions to my son.
When he asked Casey, "Is there anything you are allergic to?" Casey nodded and whispered in his ear.

Smiling, the pediatrician wrote out a prescription and handed it to me. Without looking at it, I tucked it into my purse.

Later, the pharmacist filled the order, remarking on the unusual food drug interaction my son must have. When he saw my puzzled expression, he showed me the label on the bottle.

As per the doctor's instructions, it read: "Do not take with broccoli."



General Motors doesn't have a "help line" for people who don't know
how to drive, because people don't buy cars like they buy computers
-- but imagine if they did...

HELPLINE: "General Motors HelpLine, how can I help you?"

CUSTOMER: "My car ran fine for a week, and now it won't go anywhere!"

HELPLINE: "Is the gas tank empty?"

CUSTOMER: "Huh? How do I know!?"

HELPLINE: "There's a little gauge on the front panel, with a needle,
and markings from 'E' to 'F.' Where is the needle pointing?"

CUSTOMER: "It's pointing to 'E.' What does that mean?"

HELPLINE: "It means that you have to visit a gasoline vendor, and
purchase some more gasoline. You can install it yourself, or pay
the vendor to install it for you."

CUSTOMER: "What!?" I paid $12,000. for this car! Now you tell me
that I have to keep buying more components? I want a car that comes
with everything built in!"


I had given our daughter, who was 14 at the time, a
driver's manual. On the way to town one day, I was
coaching her as I drove. I told her to be studying
her book so as to be ready when it came time to get
her drivers permit.

"Oh, she said, "I already know everything in the

"You do?" I returned.

"Yep," she said, very smugly.

I thought, "OK, I'll give her a hard one." So I asked
her, "How many feet does it take to stop the car if
you are driving 60 miles an hour and have to slam on
the brakes real hard?"

"One," she replied.

"What?" I asked.

"One?!" She repeated her answer and then because of
the confused look on my face, she added, "You always
told me never to use my left foot on the brakes, only
use my right one."


A manager has to take on some sport, at the
advice of his doctor so he decides to play

After a couple of weeks his secretary asks
him how he's doing.

"It's going fine", the manager says, "When
I'm on the court and I see the ball speeding
towards me my brain immediately says: To the
corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back!".

"Really? What happens then?", the girl asks

"Then my body says: Who? Me? Don't talk nonsense!".


Because the oven was overshooting the set temperature, I shaved a
few minutes off the cooking time for my muffins, set the timer and
asked my husband to keep an eye on them while he did the dishes and
I dusted.
Not long after, I smelled something burning and dashed into the
"Are those my muffins burning?" I asked Andy.
"Yes," he said as he calmly wiped a dinner plate.
"Then why are they still in the oven?" I cried.
"Because," he replied, "the timer hasn't gone off yet."



A strawberry and a cucumber grew up in the same garden patch. They 
were best buds growing up. As they grew older, they decided it was 
time to branch out, leave home, and see the world. So they hitched 
a ride on a nearby vegetable cart and took off.
Their first stop was at a local farmer's market. Unfortunately, 
that's where the trouble started. A big row broke out and they got 
separated, one of them ending up in a jam and the other in a pickle.
