Crochet Projects

Here are a few crochet projects we have been busy with lately. It's definitely been fun to put all our new yarn to good use! I'm hoping to be able to start on a few more projects as soon as I finish with my afghan. :)

My younger sisters (almost completed) afghan.
She does such a beautiful job.
I love the pattern that she choose for this one!

Here is the afghan that I'm currently working on.
I will try to get a picture of it when it is all the way completed. :)

Trusting In Jesus

'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Words: Louisa Stead, 1882. Music: William Kirkpatrick.

Bad Winter


After struggling on foot through deep drifts, rescuers finally reached the cabin and managed to shovel away enough snow to clear the door. The mountaineer responded to their knocking and was told by the rescuer: "We're from the Red Cross." "Well," the mountaineer responded scratching his head, "it's been a right tough winter and I don't see how we can give anything this year."

Yarn

A few days ago we were blessed to have a friend drop by unexpectedly, and give us three large bags, (plus a few boxes) of yarn. It was so very neat because just the night before our friends came, my sisters and I were talking about wanting to start a few crochet/sewing projects and how we would need to go buy some yarn and batting. Well, it turns out that not only was there yarn, there was also four bags of batting. :) The Lord is so good isn’t He?

"Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."

~Psalm 37:4

All the yarn.

Books from the library, I can't wait to start crocheting. :)
