This is truly my favorite video.
Cory and her sister Betsy are an inspiration to me.

You can watch the first of 15 videos here, and find the rest in my YouTube channel here:

The Hiding Place Playlist

If you haven’t read the book, the Hiding Place, I highly recommend it.

After the busy (and mistake-prone) day I had today,
this video definitely made my heart smile!

I just have to share these two videos with you, referred to me by a Ravelry friend!

These videos teach how to begin a double-crochet row with a double crochet,
instead of the usual ch3.

The chain 3 usually leaves a loop that just doesn’t blend well with the rest of the dc’s.

The first video teaches the method using just one color …

and this next video teaches the method when working a color change …

I wish I had learned these methods 10 years ago when I taught myself crochet!

Hope this has been helpful!

You can find more Psalms set to a cappella music

on PilgrimHymns’ YouTube Channel,

and their website, Pilgrim Ministries,

Still just in the concept stage, but this would be a wonderful stove to cook on . . .

I have been taking some time off of blogging for the summer . . .

too busy, and too hot
(we’ve averaged in the high 90’s with a heat index close to 110F)

. . . but I just had to share this video.
I realize this is all over the internet, but who can resist these two?!

Charlie laughing about it was priceless!

Neat to see how a sewing machine works up close like this!

After a few errands, I’m ready to get started on a little bit of this myself!
