“When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not
have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
'I used everything you gave me'.”

Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people; but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am Jehovah.

Leviticus 19:18

"I LOVE Thee, O Lord, my strength." The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalm 18:1-3

May Thy lovingkindnesses also come to me, O Lord, Thy salvation according to Thy word; so I shall have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Thy word. And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I wait for Thine ordinances. So I will keep Thy law continually, forever and ever. And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Thy precepts. I will also speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and not be ashamed. And I shall delight in Thy commandments, which I love. And I shall lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I love; and I will meditate on Thy statutes.

Psalm 119:41-48

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life, and peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:1-6

And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it. For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels."


Luke 9:23-26

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who practiced the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.

John 3:16-21

A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

John 13:34-35





When the apostles gathered together with Jesus
to tell Him all they had done... what did He tell them?

Work a dc in the next stitch without completing the very last step (leave the last two loops on the hook), then dc in the next stitch without completing the last step. You should have three loops on the hook then yarn over and draw through all the loops. Decrease made.

Ponytail or messy bun hats are very popular right now.
A hat pattern that is worked from the brim up
can be altered to accomodate a ponytail or bun by
omitting the last rounds to leave an opening at the top.
A hair elastic can be added to the opening if you want.

RE: How to Crochet: Kaleidoscope Afghan Square (Rnd 7)


What color red yarn did you use for this pattern.

Sonia Williamson

<< Reply >>

I used Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red.



I love this pattern and want to make a full or a queen size blanket.
Do you have the instruction on how to continue this pattern bigger.
Sonia Williamson

Thank you... I would join squares to make an afghan.
I do not have instructions of how to enlarge the size of the square.

The pattern begins at the waist and is worked up to the neck.



Re: Table_Runner

Hi Lisa,
I know you have explained how to increase the width of this pattern but I am still confused. I want to make this 14 1/2" wide but really don't know how many stitches I need to chain on to get the 14 1/2", could you please help me?

Thank you so much,

<< Reply >>

The first row of the table runner measured 10-1/2" wide and consisted of 38dc.
Here's my logic:
38dc divided by 10-1/2" = 3.619047619047619

3.619047619047619 x 14-1/2" = 52.47619047619048

So you need around 52 stitches... Taking into account that for the pattern to work out you need to add multiples of 5 stitches to the original chain.
To achieve near the 14-1/2" width you would need to chain 50 or 55 for your beginning foundation chain.
You may need to adjust your hook size to help you get closer to the width you want.

Re: I_Have_A_Question

Hello. Could you please ck pattern for ribbon christmas tree, it reads to crochet 3 sc for 60 rnds----i think it should say something different. Thank you,

<< Reply >>

Row 1 of the Crocheted Ribbon Christmas Tree Ornament consists of 3 single crochet stitches. Rows 2-60 also consist of 3 single crochet stitches.
Those 60 rows form the "ribbon" which you shape into the tree when you fold it as seen in the photo.


Re: Dog Sweater Pattern

On the dog sweater would it work if change to dc instead of hdc. The yarn I'm using is rather thick and having issues with the size hook suggested. I am on row four so was wondering if could change stitch type…

Thx Becky

<< Reply >>

I’m sure you could use dc instead of hdc.
Adjust the number of rounds accordingly.

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!
If you don't believe in miracles,
read this, it will change your mind!

While eating dinner at the dinner table, Jay, 5, stopped and
said, "Mommy, sometimes when I drink water, it goes in to my
heart. But, that's OK because sometimes God gets thirsty,


All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom. The bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand.

The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.

As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

It was the first camping experience for Jed.

As soon as he had pitched his tent, he went for a hike in the woods.
In about fifteen minutes he rushed back into camp, bleeding and

"What happened?" asked a fellow camper.

"I was chased by a black snake!" cried the frightened Jed.

The camper laughed and retorted, "A black snake isn't deadly."

"Listen," groaned Jed, "If he can make you jump off a fifty-foot
cliff, he is!"

Doug was describing a 30 pound bass he'd caught recently after fighting
it for three hours.

Bill interrupted the story saying, "I saw the picture you took of that fish.
You're lucky if it even weighed 10 pounds."

Doug replied, "Well . . . a fish can lose an awful lot of weight during
three hours of fighting."


Aboard a flight from L.A. to New York, Grandma Esther was taking her very first flight. They had only been aloft a few minutes when the elderly lady complained to the stewardess that her ears were popping.

The girl smiled and gave the older woman some chewing gum, assuring her that many people experienced the same discomfort.

When they landed in New York, Grandma thanked the stewardess. "The chewing gum worked fine," she said, "but tell me, how do I get it out of my ears?"


After returning home from grocery shopping, I put away all the food
but left one large butternut squash on the kitchen counter. Then I
went into the family room.

My four-year-old son, Peter walked into the kitchen and let out a
loud gasp. Running to me, he exclaimed, "Mom, you won't believe it!
There's a giant peanut in there!"


We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "seniors' special" was
two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because
you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" My wife asked
incredulously. "I'll take the special."

"How do you want your eggs?"

"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied. She took the two eggs home.


I took my young son to the doctor for a routine physical.

All the way I had to reassure him that he would not be getting a
shot. He went through his eye exam, hearing test, etc. The nurse
came into the exam room and started to ask me routine questions.

When she got to "Is he allergic to anything" my four year old son
stood up and said "YES, I'm allergic to shots!"


Two college seniors had a week of exams coming up. However,
they decided to go to a party instead and they didn't get
any studying done.

When they went to the test, they decided to tell the
professor that their car had broken down the night before
due to a flat tire and they needed a bit more time to study.

The professor told them that they could have another day
to study.

That evening, both of the boys crammed all night until
they were sure that they knew just about everything.

Arriving to class the next morning, each boy was told to
go to separate classrooms to take the exam. Each shrugged
and went to two different parts of the building.

As each sat down, they read the first question.

"For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom."

At this point, they both thought that this was going to
be a piece of cake, and answered the question with ease.

Then, the test continued... "For 95 points, tell me which
tire it was."

A fifth grader looked downcast, so her teacher decided to

"What's the problem, Carol? I hope it's not homework again."

"Well... yes, it is." replied Carol, reluctantly. "I was stupid
and made my homework paper into a paper airplane."

"Carol, you're right, that wasn't a very bright thing to do,"
said the teacher, "but this once I'll let you just unfold the
paper and hand it in."

"Oh, but that won't work," said Carol, looking even sadder.
"You see, the plane was hijacked."


I'm a library aide so the students at my school usually see
me only in the media center. One day as I was leaving the
building, a kindergartner saw me getting into my car.

He was so excited to see me that he exclaimed, "I didn't know
they let you out of the library!"


The man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door
onto the porch. Someone called 911.

When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness
and asked if he knew what caused him to faint.

"It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for
the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came
out with the lawn mower!"
