“The greatest legacy one
can pass on to one's children and grandchildren
is not money or other material things
accumulated in one's life,
but rather a legacy of character and faith.”

~~ Billy Graham ~~


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~




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


Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which the Lord your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it, so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the Lord your God to keep all His statutes and His commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged.

Deuteronomy 6:1-2

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

PRAISE the Lord! How blessed is a man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

Psalm 112:1-3

UNLESS the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.

Psalm 127:1


A GOOD name is to be more desired than great riches, favor is better than silver and gold. The rich and the poor have a common bond. The Lord is the maker of them all. The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it. The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor and life. Thorns and snares are in the way of he perverse; he who guards himself will be far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it. The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender's slave. He who sows iniquity will reap vanity, and the rod of his fury will perish. He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor. Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out. Even strife and dishonor will cease. He who loves purity of heart and whose speech is gracious, the king is his friend. The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, but He overthrows the words of the treacherous man. The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside; I shall be slain in the streets!" The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit; he who is cursed of the Lord will fall into it. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of discipline will remove it far from him. He who oppresses the poor to make much for himself or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.

Proverbs 22:1-16


And He began to speak to them in parables: "A man PLANTED A VINEYARD, AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT, AND DUG A VAT UNDER THE WINE PRESS, AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey. And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers. And they took him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. And again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some, and killing others. He had one more to send, a beloved son; he sent him last of all to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' But those vine-growers said to one another, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours!' And they took him, and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others. Have you not even read this Scripture: 'THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES'?" And they were seeking to seize Him; and yet they feared the multitude; for they understood that He spoke the parable against them. And so they left Him, and went away.

Mark 12:1-12


Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:4



According to Proverbs, what is more desirable than great riches?

Re: Baby Beanie

Would I be able to use a #3 baby yarn to make the east baby beanie you have on the website. You stated it was your own pattern. If so, what size hook would I use and what other changes do I need to make. I am trying to use the same yarn as I used on a blanket.

Thanks for your help.



Ann M. Cook

<< Reply >>

The yarn I used for the beanie was also a light, size 3 baby yarn.
If you tend to have a tight tension when you crochet I would suggest going up a hook size.

This is what I refer to as a “row count” pattern.
The pattern is worked in all single crochet with a Main Color (MC) and a Contrasting Color (CC). Each row lists how many single crochet stitches to work in each of the colors. For instance, Row 2 has you chain 1 and turn. Then work 13 single crochet stitches in white, 2 single crochet stitches in orchid and then 13 more in white.

How do you count them if you're left handed?

Maureen Neumann

The stitches would be counted the same way but in order to crochet the pattern left handed you will need to read the graph in the opposite direction.

How to Crochet - Long Single Crochet (a/k/a Single Crochet Spike Stitch)

I have a pattern with the abbreviation Ss. I'm not familiar with that one do you know what that stands for?

Linda Carroll

It is "slip stitch" as far as I know.

Peggy Pettis


<< Reply >>

SS is a Slip Stitch.
Insert your hook into the indicated stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch and the loop on the hook.




Crocheted Tissue Holder


I just finished your pattern for the pocket tissue pattern (crocheted)
I tried to put the full Kleenex brand tissues inside of the pocket.....
It was way to small.......

Thank You,

<< Reply >>

Achieving a different size only means your tension is different than mine.
Tension or Gauge refers to how loose or tight you crochet your stitches are. Some patterns list measurements for a certain number of stitches and/or rows. This tells you if your tension or gauge meets what is recommended for your pattern. The Pocket Tissue Cover was one of the first patterns I posted and I failed to list that information. Any difference in yarn can also play a part in changing the size.

In the future you can adjust your hook size to obtain a larger size cover. For this particular pattern you can make the foundation chain the width of the pack of tissues. Repeat Row 2 until it wraps around the tissues and then finish assembling the cover.


RE: Candy_Cane_Reindeer

In doing this pattern there is a large hole @ the end of the beginning - should there be one? Or is there supposed to be a closed end? I got one from a flea market a few years ago & the ends are closed not woven in. Second ? Is when doing the rounds do I chain one each time or just continuously sc in each CH. In doing so it seems to close after a few rows.....any hints? Or video?thanks - still new @ this & trying to make for god daughters handicapped class for Christmas. Thanks for helping - Daisy.

<< Reply >>

There’s a hole on both ends... the candy cane is inserted into the tube.
The pattern is worked in a continuous round.. no chains for each new round.
With one stitch in each stitch around the tube should maintain the size as you go.


Re: ReadAPattern

My pattern reads: ch7. 3sc in second ch from hook; sc in next 4 chs, 3sc in last ch; working in free loops of beginning ch, sc in next 4 chs; do not join. Where are the 4 chs coming from?

Dianna Oldham

<< Reply >>

You make 7 chains to begin with.
Now work 3 single crochet stitches in the second chain from the hook.
Now work one single crochet in each of the next 4 chains.
Work 3 single crochets in the last chain.
Turn the piece around so you can work back along the opposite side of the foundation chain...
working into the free loops of each of the 4 chains you worked into originally.
Place one single in each of those 4 stitches.
Here is a photo that may help with placement:

Re: Crochet Binkie Holders

I have been searching for a pattern for a crochet pacifier holders, and was wondering if you would have a pattern or if you had published one in a previous issue? Thank you ahead of time.

I have not designed a pacifier holder.

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?"

The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."


We were doing a science lesson on how plants grow. The children all got a chance to plant their own seeds.

After a few days of watching the seedlings, I secretly exchanged a few seeds for the children whose plants did not sprout.

Several days later one of my students said: "Look Mrs. Gilligan, it's a miracle, my plant is growing".

I said: "Yes, seeds sprouting is very exciting".

He said: "No Mrs. Gilligan, that's not the miracle, I ATE the SEED and it is growing anyway!"


When you are in your casket and family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like to hear them say?

Three people chose these words:

1: I would like to hear them say that I was a wonderful husband and a great family man.

2: I would like to hear them say that I was an excellent teacher who made a huge difference in people's lives.

3: I would like to hear them say, "Look, he's moving!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


When my daughter said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every
pet (current and past).

For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, "And all girls." Soon this closing became part of her nightly routine.

My curiosity got the best of me, so I asked her, "Kelly, why do you always add the part about all girls?"

"Well," she said, "Because everyone else always finishes their prayers by saying, 'All Men!' "


A young woman drove into the garage where I had a part time job.
She told me this was her first car, and it was time for an oil change.

Wanting only the best for her prized possession, she'd brought her own filter and oil.

When I crawled under the car, she watched my every move. After the old oil was drained, she gave me the new filter, saying she had bought the very best product for her car after overhearing a conversation between her mother and a neighbor on the subject of oil. With a confident smile, she handed me two cans of Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


I was looking through my closet for something to wear, but nothing was calling out to me. So I sought my three-year-old's opinion. "What do you think I should change into?" I asked.

He thought awhile before replying, "A butterfly."


A bee flew into the bus and began buzzing menacingly against the window next to me and the man seated ahead of me. For several unnerving minutes I debated what I should do until my fellow passenger decided to dispatch the insect with the paperback book he'd been reading.

After several unsuccessful swats, one blow hit its mark.

"I'm glad you got it," I told the man.

He smiled sheepishly as he showed me the title of the book he had used: _Random Acts of Kindness_.


A wife texts her husband on a cold winter's morning:
"Windows frozen."

Her husband texts back: "Pour some lukewarm water over it."

The wife texts back 5 minutes later: "Computer completely messed up now."


At a local juice bar, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to the old lady that owned the bar.

"The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company.
He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!"

The old granny couldn't take it anymore and spoke up, "Honey, if that's all you want, get a TV!"

"Hey, Bob! You say you're a songwriter?" Andy said.
"I sure am. Why, I've written songs for Michael Jackson, Faith Hill, Ricky Martin, Madonna, Bruce, Lady Gaga..."
Bob said, modestly.
"Wow! Have all those stars sung your songs?"
"Well, actually, I didn't say they sang any of them. I just said I wrote songs for them."


Little Joe walked into his dad's study while his dad was working on the computer.

"Dad," said Joe, "Remember when you told me you'd give me twenty dollars if I passed my math test?"

Dad nodded.

"Well, the good news is that I just saved you twenty bucks."


Barb's granddaughter was in kindergarten. There was a boy in her class that wasn't listening to the teacher.
The teacher said to him, "Since you don't want to listen, you sit at that table by yourself."
After a few minutes, Barb's granddaughter raised her hand and said, "I don't want to listen either. Can I sit with
