Just a reminder... Crochet
N More only uses two addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org (notes and/or replies from Lisa)
email@example.com (used to send the CNM Newsletter)
I received an email earlier this month that said it was from "firstname.lastname@example.org"... there is no such address! The body of the email said,
"We regret to inform you that your account has been suspended due to the violation of our site policy, more info is attached. "
Obviously the attached portion
could be a virus.
I never send attachments to anyone without first letting them know I'll be sending them.

TO KNOW THE BIBLE IS GOOD; TO KNOW ITS AUTHOR IS BETTER!
The Five Finger Prayer
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain; and it did not rain on the earth for three years and sic months. And he prayed again, and the sky poured rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.
Rejoice always; Pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
NOT THE WORDS WE PRAY THAT MATTER,
IT'S THE CONDITION OF OUR HEART."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - June, 2005 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

A woman in my office learned
something she remembers as the "broom stitch" from her mother (now deceased)
when she was a child. She can't remember how to do it now, but she says it produced
beautiful work. Can you tell us how to do it? I can't find instructions anywhere
on the internet.

South Bay Crochet offers Broomstick Lace Techniques and Tips on this page:
Broomstick Lace Afghan:
Broomstick Lace Afghan Square:
Broomstick Lace Summer Romper:
Lovely in Lace Hat :
Broomstick Lace is done
with a large knitting needle or broomstick.
Broomstick lace can be altered to suite your taste.
Instead of doing 4 loops per section you might want to do 5.
Use your imagination. Just remember... if you pull off 4 loops
(like in the square pattern) you must do 4 stitches into those loops.
If you pull off 5 loops you must do 5 stitches into the loops, etc.
Hope this helps.

I always had yarn scraps
everywhere in my take along projects until I discovered a small bowl I had used
to carry dry cereal for my daughter when she was a toddler. Part of the lid
swivels around so she could open it alone and not spill the cereal. Now she's
older I use it to hold my yarn needle and scrap yarn pieces.

RE: Read A Pattern
I have recently learned to crochet from my 91 year old grandmother. I have wanted to learn to chrochet because of her. She taught herself and has been crocheting all her life. She has made many, many afghans, slippers, hats, and vests throughtout her life. Anyway, she learned by looking at other people's work and copying the pieces or she made up her own patterns. The one piece of advice she told me to be sure and do was to learn to read the instructions and how to follow them. I am still a beginner but am eager to learn more. I just finished my first afghan - double crochet with a single crochet edging. I just wanted to say thanks so much for the very good detailed instructions and easy to understand instructions.

While on vacation with my son and his family, I shared a room with my 4 year old granddaughter. One morning when she awoke, she told me she had some nice dreams and proceeded to tell me about them. I told her I wished that I was able to dream like she does. She said, "But you can't because you snore too much."
A teacher asked one of her pupils, "What's the nation's capital?" The reply was, "Washington DC." On being asked what the 'DC' stood for, the pupil added, "Dot com!"
On Monday a call came in to the School Receptionist. "Hello, please mark William absent today," said the man. "Why?" asked the receptionist. "He is sick," said the man. "Ok, may I ask who is speaking?" said the receptionist. "My uncle." said William.
My wife Delores never quite got the hang of the 24-hour military clock. One day she called the orderly room to speak with me. The person who answered told her to call me at the extension in the band rehearsal hall. "He can be reached at 4700, Ma'am," the soldier advised. With a sigh of exasperation, my wife responded, "And just what time is that?"
I sat there waiting for my new doctor to make his way through the file that contained my very extensive medical history. After he finished all seventeen pages, he looked at me and said, "You look better in person than you do on paper."
Joe woke himself up with a loud "Hello!", apparently to someone in his dream. As the next day came and went, Joe thought the nocturnal outburst was his alone to remember. But that night as he and his wife Margaret, were getting ready for bed, she said dryly... "Dear, if you see anyone you know tonight, just wave, OK?"
