Good Morniiing!

I have some energy now. Okay, I'll tell you about the crochet class.

The Begining: My mom has a job as a hospice nurse. She went to this nursing home that she didn't even knew exsisted. She told me that the people in there liked to wear hand-made caps, sorta like prayer caps. Mom asked me if I could make them. I said that I had a better idea. I'd get my Wednesday Nite Class, Friends, to help make some!

Middle: I tried to make a hat, but failed with the base chain. The pattern was great, so I made it again, this time with a silding loop, and it held together perfectly! I took some pictures and sent them to my Friends' Sponser. She said it was awesome, so then we had a good talk about it. So, I told her that a great beginner's project was a washcloth, so Mom & I had to go and buy yarn(they paid us back later). Then, it was tiiime!!!!

Ending: We are still working. The end is far off, but it is still close(So close, yet so far!).

That's it. Okay, then, have a great day!

I'm too lazzyyy

I'm too lazy to go into a full-bown thing about the crochet class I'm teaching, so I'll just slap a video on here and be done. This video is a song by Rascal Flatts and it's called 'Ellsworth' and it's just so awesome!


(Not So) Little Susie

For all of you who live in NC, do you remember Susie? The dog who was left to die? Well, she has a new owner, and I got to take some pictures of Susie! Her new owner actually owns this place my mom & I go to, and my BFF's mom works there. I got to take some pictures of sweet Susie! Here are some:

I'll post later maybe of some pictures from tonight's crocheting lesson. If I can't take any pictures, I'll tell you why there is a lesson. Bye!

A Blast From the Past

For me, anyway. I was glancing through my magazine, NG Kids, and they had a section about the new Shrek Movie. Then I saw the name Rumpelsiltskin. That brought back so many memeories from 1st grade. I googled up the story, and here it is:


Once there was a miller who was poor, but who had a beautiful daughter. Now it happened that he had to go and speak to the king, and in order to make himself appear important he said to him, "I have a daughter who can spin straw into gold."
The king said to the miller, "That is an art which pleases me well, if your daughter is as clever as you say, bring her to-morrow to my palace, and I will put her to the test."
And when the girl was brought to him he took her into a room which was quite full of straw, gave her a spinning-wheel and a reel, and said, "Now set to work, and if by to-morrow morning early you have not spun this straw into gold during the night, you must die."
Thereupon he himself locked up the room, and left her in it alone. So there sat the poor miller's daughter, and for the life of her could not tell what to do, she had no idea how straw could be spun into gold, and she grew more and more frightened, until at last she began to weep.
But all at once the door opened, and in came a little man, and said, "Good evening, mistress miller, why are you crying so?"
"Alas," answered the girl, "I have to spin straw into gold, and I do not know how to do it."
"What will you give me," said the manikin, "if I do it for you?"
"My necklace," said the girl.
The little man took the necklace, seated himself in front of the wheel, and whirr, whirr, whirr, three turns, and the reel was full, then he put another on, and whirr, whirr, whirr, three times round, and the second was full too. And so it went on until the morning, when all the straw was spun, and all the reels were full of gold.
By daybreak the king was already there, and when he saw the gold he was astonished and delighted, but his heart became only more greedy. He had the miller's daughter taken into another room full of straw, which was much larger, and commanded her to spin that also in one night if she valued her life. The girl knew not how to help herself, and was crying, when the door opened again, and the little man appeared, and said, "What will you give me if I spin that straw into gold for you?"

< 2 >
"The ring on my finger," answered the girl.
The little man took the ring, again began to turn the wheel, and by morning had spun all the straw into glittering gold.
The king rejoiced beyond measure at the sight, but still he had not gold enough, and he had the miller's daughter taken into a still larger room full of straw, and said, "You must spin this, too, in the course of this night, but if you succeed, you shall be my wife."
Even if she be a miller's daughter, thought he, I could not find a richer wife in the whole world.
When the girl was alone the manikin came again for the third time, and said, "What will you give me if I spin the straw for you this time also?"
"I have nothing left that I could give," answered the girl.
"Then promise me, if you should become queen, to give me your first child."
Who knows whether that will ever happen, thought the miller's daughter, and, not knowing how else to help herself in this strait, she promised the manikin what he wanted, and for that he once more spun the straw into gold.
And when the king came in the morning, and found all as he had wished, he took her in marriage, and the pretty miller's daughter became a queen.
A year after, she brought a beautiful child into the world, and she never gave a thought to the manikin. But suddenly he came into her room, and said, "Now give me what you promised."
The queen was horror-struck, and offered the manikin all the riches of the kingdom if he would leave her the child. But the manikin said, "No, something alive is dearer to me than all the treasures in the world."
Then the queen began to lament and cry, so that the manikin pitied her.
"I will give you three days, time," said he, "if by that time you find out my name, then shall you keep your child."
So the queen thought the whole night of all the names that she had ever heard, and she sent a messenger over the country to inquire, far and wide, for any other names that there might be. When the manikin came the next day, she began with Caspar, Melchior, Balthazar, and said all the names she knew, one after another, but to every one the little man said, "That is not my name."

< 3 >
On the second day she had inquiries made in the neighborhood as to the names of the people there, and she repeated to the manikin the most uncommon and curious. Perhaps your name is Shortribs, or Sheepshanks, or Laceleg, but he always answered, "That is not my name."
On the third day the messenger came back again, and said, "I have not been able to find a single new name, but as I came to a high mountain at the end of the forest, where the fox and the hare bid each other good night, there I saw a little house, and before the house a fire was burning, and round about the fire quite a ridiculous little man was jumping, he hopped upon one leg, and shouted -
'To-day I bake, to-morrow brew,
the next I'll have the young queen's child.
Ha, glad am I that no one knew
that Rumpelstiltskin I am styled.'"
You may imagine how glad the queen was when she heard the name. And when soon afterwards the little man came in, and asked, "Now, mistress queen, what is my name?"
At first she said, "Is your name Conrad?"
"Is your name Harry?"
"Perhaps your name is Rumpelstiltskin?"
"The devil has told you that! The devil has told you that," cried the little man, and in his anger he plunged his right foot so deep into the earth that his whole leg went in, and then in rage he pulled at his left leg so hard with both hands that he tore himself in two.

I enjoy the story. Ha ha. We did the play of it in first grade. I was the miler's daughter. The guy who played Rumpelstiltskin was the shortest guy in class. The messagner was one of my good friends from way back when(5 yrs.)! The Miler guy was this nice kid..... I can't remeber his name but I can see his face.... anyway, that's the cast of characters! Well, bye!

Wed. Nite Crochet Class

It didn't go as well as last week's, but everyone got a good word and something like "Crocheting Homework" to work on until next week. You would like to know the number of girls, huh? 12. 12 girls, sometimes 13. This evening, we had about.... oh say..... 13-15 girls. There is one girl who has taken off with it. She's on her..... 3rd or 4th row. She keeps saying, "Cate! Cate! It's geting bigger!" I told her that the single crochet brings out the true lengh of the chain. It still was fun. Well, I did take lots of pictures, but almost none of the pictures are of the girls crocheting, so I'll show you a funny picture I took of my cat the other day. Ach, nevermind. The pictures uploading isn't working. Blah. Whatever. Bye.

Crochet Class!!!

Everyone did so good I can't say who did the best! Here are some pictures I took while teaching them!

Warming up our tounges! (Like we need it, lol x])

*Yours Truly*

That's Right, Pose It, Girl!

Concentrating SOOOOO.... HARD.....

Here is a future addict of crocheting.

I got an action shot of one of my friend's knitting. Now the class knows the difference. xD

We girls MUST pose with our FAB-U-LOS yarn!

Oh Dear. It's pointed at me. And she's smiling. We should all be scared. (JK)

Well, we had lots of fun!!! Here's somethings I've learned:

*ALWAYS have patience. Even if you're helping someone and the person across the room needs help at the same time.
*STAY CALM. Even if you want to scream.
*Don't give up on them.
*After the class, they may(and will) come to you and ask for help. Greet them with a smile.
*Joke around. It stops stress. And take pictures and fool around. It makes the lesson fun & memorible.
*Teaching a big group of people your age may seem frustrating, but since you're the teacher & they are interested, they look up to you.

Okay, I hope that helps! Bye!!!!

Romans 5:6-8

"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
