Step into Crochet from Pieced Brain

This month, Interweave is releasing a cool book about how to crochet socks: Step into Crochet by Rohn Strong. I was eager to review this book because the only socks I ever learned to make were knitted socks, and had no idea crochet socks could be so fashionable, interesting, and easy to make.

All photographs by Deana Travers for Interweave. Used with permission.
"Step into Crochet" is a blend of reference guide and pattern book. The first four chapters walk you through everything you ever wanted to know about crocheting socks and were afraid to ask. From the precise measurement ...

A Wimp No More! Part 1 Stash Report. Patrick's Strength from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

A Wimp No More! Part 1
Part 2 is here
I'm going to deviate a bit from our study on Philippians to share a testimony.  I have had a HUGE breakthrough in my walk with Christ!



There has been a situation in our lives that has been negatively affecting me - reducing me to tears,
weak prayers,
fear,
anxiety....
you know the drill. 

BUT NO MORE!  

Yesterday as I reached out to friends for prayer, one of them called me.  Basically, she told me I needed to stand strong in my faith so that those involved would be strong as ...

It's Monday 6.12.17 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

I meant to write all weekend but here it is Monday.
Weekends sometimes just are not long enough.



Was able to get a little more done on the No Brainer quilt.
I named it that because it was suppose to be a mindless, just stitch squares together and call it good but my mind couldn't just rest. It evolve to this now.

Of course it is taking a little long to assemble.



I found this golden beige in my stash, tone wise goes well but in a way boring.
It will be a good gift quilt because of it ...

Slow Stitching - Around the House Embroidery & Tablecloth from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Hello There!
I'm so ready for a slow stitching day!  I'll be working on two projects!  I hope you have a great weekend!


Slow Stitching - Around the House Embroidery
This baby is ready for handquilting!  Yea!  I'm going to use Mollie's from Wild Olive style - a simple running stitch.  I have enjoyed her Around the House Embroidery Club!  

 I chose to use the orange for the backing for no special reason except to use the fabric that had the most potential to be used up with minimal scraps left!  :)

Busy...Busy from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

It's been a couple days since I've written and boy have I been busy around here. Mom had her follow up appointment after her first treatment yesterday and all looks good and she's having no side effects due to the treatment.

I've been busy in the morning working around the yard trying to get the flowerbeds, potted plants and such in order. Last night "the man of the place" and I cut out what I call weed trees. It's amazing each year how many of these little tree seedlings come up in my flowerbeds.

Tempting Ewe Yarns from Becca's Crazy Projects

During the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival I always stop in to see the absolutely wonderful creatives behind Tempting Ewe Yarns.

These beauties always have something in the booth I want. Sometimes, too many things. This year I picked up two skeins of lovely yarn. I'm not sure what the plan is with the red, but I could not leave it behind.
I also grabbed these awesome F-Bomb stitch markers made by BritStitchery. I may have to pick up a set of the FYI stitch markers, too.
I knew exactly what I was going to do with that speckled ...

Philippians 3:9 Pretzel Twist. Organization For Many Pieces. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

High Quality Pink flower in rock Blank Meme TemplateHello Everyone!
I realized I forgot to add the "prayer" part to yesterday's Bible Study.  I could go back and add it, but I've decided to move on.  God understands our faithful, sincere efforts to honor Him.  Don't you agree?  :)


Philippians 3:9
Scripture
Observation

Paul's desire is so simple:  he wants his righteousness to be based on faith in Christ alone.  He understands this righteousness is from God and based on faith in His Son.  
Application
Study of verse 9 could be a rather complicated and long process.  But, let's simply take it at ...

Dancing Leaf Farm from Becca's Crazy Projects

We're almost to the end of my short series covering the yarn vendors who supplied me with my Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival goodies this year.

Dancing Leaf Farm is always strategically placed near the entrance. This means it is often one of the last shops I visit. I usually stop in on my way out. Because one wouldn't want to leave with yarn budget unspent. This year I really splurged and bought five skeins of Sock Hop. I've been eyeing the Find Your Fade shawl and thinking I need to try something like that. I haven ...

Catch and Release from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've seen a basket re-purposed as a cat bed and wanted to give it a try. Sometimes the cat decides to do this without asking, particularly if the basket is filled with laundry, yarn, or fabric scraps.

I picked up a basket at the local craft store. Along with some yarn from the mill-ends bin. I had no idea how much yarn it would take, so this was a reasonable plan in my estimation.
I free-form crocheted a cover for the basket. I had to rip a few rows here and there to get it to fit, but it ...

Marigold Jen Hand Dyed Yarn from Becca's Crazy Projects

I always stop in to Jenny's tent at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. This year I picked up these three small hanks of yarn to add to my growing collection of sock yarn.

These hanks are 50 grams each. When you want to knit something big that may seem like an annoyance, but if you want to add some variation to your color work this is way to go. When I was working on the Marled Magic Mystery Knit Along by Stephen West I realized how few colors I have in my collection of yarn. These yarns will ...

Distracted by a scarf! from Creating Chaos

Been distracted by more crochet!   This time it was a scarf for myself which I saw in Inside Crochet   and thought would be ideal for cooler days in spring/summer/autumn.    With this in mind I made it using Hayfield Fiesta which is a bamboo yarn which is very soft and quite light.

Really pleased with the result although the warmer weather means I haven't worn in yet.

into the whirled from Becca's Crazy Projects

I was drawn to the into the whirled booth by the amazing colors. I had to pick up some of the amazing sock yarn. Again, I have no plan for this yarn. but with colorway names like "Captain Tightpants" and "Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey" I couldn't leave without them.

I need to either figure out more things to knit with sock yarn or I need to find more one-ball shawl patterns. Do you have a favorite design that uses 100 grams of yummy sock yarn? I would like to hear about it.

Recovering mode and needlework from Susan P Blog

Two weeks after my surgery and I feel so good. I am now at the stage where I have to stop myself from doing things, as I feel so well. It makes me feel guilty not to clean the house and help with the painting, but although the external wounds are healed I have to be conscious of what is going on internally and make sure I give that enough time to heal properly too. So I am still focussing on needlework and resting for the rest of this week

I haven’t work on the Neverending sampler for quite ...

Philippians 3:6 To Do Tuesday from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 3:6
Scripture
Observation
Verse 6 continues Paul's litany of why he certainly has reason to base his faith in the flesh - though he clearly does not.  














Here, Paul lists his amazing zeal for persecuting the church and extreme following of the law.  








Application
How broken Paul's heart must have been as he went down his own personal Memory Lane of persecuting the church!  How many of us are trapped by our own Memory Lane?  Dear Ones, we don't have to be!  Remember Paul's point:  our faith is based on Christ alone!



Paul was definitely ...
