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?

My first Christmas Wish List Exchange Package

I was so blessed today when my “anonymous” Secret Santa package came today!  It contained all my “wishes”  Two Aerlit shuttles, purple beads, dark chocolate, and two hand-made froggers -- PLUS it contained TURTLES (a pendant and a bead) —which I collect! 

THEN—“SECRET SANTA -- Sue Anna Scribner”, who just happened to also have been my very first ever, Christmas exchange partner back a few years ago…which is how I happened to figure out who my “SECRET SANTA” was this year …. Also included SO VERY GENEROUSLY AND BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS------ a---- POP-A-BOBBIN SHUTTLE------!!------WOW!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

In this wonderful  package were also lovely tatting bag, purple buttons, bobbins for my aerlit shuttles as well as four special thread bobbins , and a needle book (decorated with tatting),  I got some more really neat beads and findings.   She included a lovely tatted snowflake in variegated purple thread, and I got a hank of Marilee Rocklee’s Hand-Dyed Thread in a luscious deep purple “flavor”.  THANK YOU SUE ANNA!!  I couldn’t have “Wished” for more!     My deep appreciation!!

Thank you again Patti for organizing this!


  1. It all looks very nice and what fun I really like that purple thread too looks royal!

  2. This is fun! I received such an unexpectedly good package/gift! That thread, and all the rest of the purples are gorgeous!--Just my colors!!
