He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Earrings for a friend

     My husband had a conference in Oklahoma City last week.  He took me with him.  I was able to spend the day with my friend, Lurene.  We had a great day together!  She took me out to a wonderful breakfast!  Then we spent the day going in and out of the shops of one of the outlet malls.  We did stop at one point to rest our aching feet -- Lurene generously paid for me to get a manicure while she pampered herself in some other ways at a spa there in the mall.
I sent her these as a small "thank you".
     They are made off of Anne Brovold's, Ringtrim pattern--available here--  http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2009/annebringtrimmikrodrageeng.pdf  I used Lizbeth thread, size 20, color 138, Leafy Green.


  1. Ringtrim makes the cutest earrings! I"m sure your friend will be thrilled.

    1. I love this pattern--I do hope she enjoys them.

  2. Those are so beautiful and you have made them so well, love them she will be thrilled!

  3. Thank you. I hope she enjoys them.

  4. They are beauitful, Sounds a great day out.

  5. Thank you! My health hasn't been great lately, so I've been staying "in" a lot, it was so wonderful to get out of the house!

  6. Thank you! I heard from my friend last night, and she had finally received her little package in the mail--she said that she loved them! ---- My friend called them dragonflies, but I wasn't going to correct her, she was so happy, because dragonflies reminded her of her Daddy! :)


I love comments from my readers!
