I am working on a sweet little pattern, actually testing it, so I can't post anything about it, but that will be taking up most of my crocheting time. Oh, and I joined the Butterfly Bag CAL at the ville, I think it will be beautiful. All the other bags designed by this lady are amazing. They have a vintage flair too. I will post back with that link soon. Have a lovely afternoon! God Bless!

There are more, this is just what I took photos of tonight. There are 3 blankets, the Granny Square one I love. The pink one has a mini Crinoline Lady in the corner, and the blue one is edged with a yarn from Lady Anna. ~Thank You Miss Lady Secret!~ The 2 crochet and fabric dresses are inspired by an idea on the Carol Duval show a few years ago. I believe the designer is Candy Jensen..I'll have to look that up and see. The lavender dress is a pattern on~line, I just can't seem to remember which one, didn't follow it all the way either...I kinda like to add my own special touches. lol. Anyhow, there are hats, and bonnets, and I'm happy to say, I designed these bonnets, I did work 2 from a pattern after I made some of my own. The little bag is fleece, it has grograin ribbon for the handles, I sewed this little tote on my new sewing machine, a gift from my mother for my birthday! Yay! Thanks Mama! ;) There will be a matching blanket, just as soon as I can figure out how I want to edge it. Anyhow, I've rattled on, Enjoy the photos. These items will be delivered to the Center next week.

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

2 pkgs. yeast
1 cup warm water
1 cup milk, scalded
1 cup butter
2/3 cup of sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
8 cups sifted plain flour
* Large Marshmallows*
Sprinkle yeast into warm water. Let stand a few minutes. Pour hot milk over butter, sugar, salt and cool to luke warm. (be sure it is cool before proceding) Add yeast/water mixture, eggs and half of flour. Beat well. Add enough flour to make a dough that will not stick to bowl. Turn out on lightly floured board (counter) and knead lightly. Put in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and turn out on a board (counter) Take enough dough for 1 roll and roll it out flat, cover 1 large marshmallow, closing it on all sides, and put seam on bottom. Continue untill dough is finished. Bake @ 425 for 20 minutes, brush with butter right away. Don't press down on them, because the marshmallow will have melted away, leaving an empty tomb.
Enjoy your "Empty Tombs" and if you serve these at a party, or for a special dinner with friends, maby you will have a *new* way to witness to some friends. Enjoy!

My local Wally World has finished deleting their yarn and thread. I went this morning to buy some pink size #10 and it was all gone. Now I will have to drive into the next city to buy my crochet items. I really wanted some pink thread today too. I wanted to make a pink doily. Ok, I will quit whinning now. hahaha
Doilies.....Yes, I have one to post, but I must wait a day or two...Maby I shall read some this evening, instead of crocheting the night away!
