Friday 8/16/13 crocheting...

I have started crocheting again. It is very relaxing. I like to crochet Granny squares because they are mindless, I only need to be able to count to three as I make them. Then I can watch the kids and crochet at the same time. I can't read and watch the kids and I don't like sitting there doing nothing. Crocheting was a good solution. When the kids were young, we used to go outside and the kids would play on our street with their friends. I could crochet and watch them at the same time. Soon the kids wandered over to see what I was doing and we taught them to crochet too. It was a fun neighborhood. We all learned to crochet, sew, cook, plant flowers, make compost and so many other things. On our dead end street we had between twelve and twenty kids. They mostly got along. Almost everyone has moved away. We miss them. The people that have moved in don't have any kids

August 2013 Bible verse: "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." Acts 20:24


  1. I would love to learn to crochet. I have been trying to learn from a book, but my stitches don't look the same as in the book. I learned to knit from a book, so I don't understand why I cannot learn crochet the same way!

  2. It's most coincidental that I came to you blog and this post today cause all day today, I was thinking bout learning to crochet. I was telling my friend that I thinks crocheting is a crucial part of my fantasy of being a proper mum and I only have that down too, I feel!
