That’s all l I have taken photos of! I pray every is well! YouTube is a great resource if you want to learn how to crochet while you are at home!
Much love to all!
It has been pressed upon me to encourage everyone to get on their knees in their homes and ask God, ABBA, Creator, Yah for forgiveness for the destruction of His Creation. Especially the murder of the most innocent among us.
James 4:7-8 KJVS
 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
I find it interesting that in the day of “wash your hands”, maybe the message is not only externally but INTERNALLY.
The thing about “birth pangs” is they get stronger and more frequent until the baby is born.
Jude 1:3-25 KJVS
 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.  Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.  Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.  But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.  These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;  Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,  To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.  These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.  But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;  How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.  These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.  And of some have compassion, making a difference:  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. …
I am working as a caregiver for elderly folks so they can stay in their own homes.
One of my clients passed away last week. I crocheted her some roses to bring to the visitation. She was an avid crocheter and small business pioneer.
I have closed my Etsy Shop because I have only had 9 sales in 4 years.
BUT you can contact me on Facebook or Instagram to place an order!
I have a variety of ear warmers, beanies, Pom Pom hats (or Toque if you are Canadian)!
I have always been upfront about my struggles and my diagnosis of bipolar 2 with severe anxiety and depression.
Since I talked to you last, my life has been in a shambles. I was sent back to Illinois where I was sharing a house with my daughter and her family. They moved and I lost the house we were living in and pretty much everything I owned, including my kitty. I managed to save enough clothes and yarn to get by.
The month of June, I was homeless. I ended up in the hospital because of the series of losses triggered my PTSD. I am not a veteran. My Complex PTSD is caused by repeated severe trauma; molestation, rape, domestic violence, homelessness (you get the idea). I was blessed by a young man who had been friends with my daughter who allowed me to stay at his apartment while I was looking for a place to live. The difficulty was finding an apartment that I could afford, with security deposit, on my disability check.
Then, I was blessed, again by a woman who needed someone to take over the lease on her apartment. The security deposit was paid, for now. I was the first person to respond to her ad, about 5 minutes after she posted it! They landlord accepted me and I moved in June 30.
Crocheting is one way I kept from giving up. Here are some of the items I completed:
I had found a place but it didn’t feel like home. That is, until I adopted 2 twelve week old kitten sisters! They have grown a lot since I brought them to live with me.
I named them Hope (the top photo) and Faith (obviously the bottom pic).
They keep me smiling and getting out of bed every day.
They don’t let me crochet very much because they think the yarn is theirs!
Even though I am not homeless anymore, I am still struggling. They remind me that I need to have hope and keep the faith. I try to remember to cast my cares and anxiety on Jesus. That He will not abandon me. He provided an escape from being homeless and the food pantry is keeping me fed.
If you would like to help, please check out my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/CabinCrochetCreation
And keep me in your prayers as I search for a job.
Thank you for reading my blog post! And may God bless you richly!
I can’t get it into my head that I need to write blog posts regularly! Again, I have to apologize…BUT I have a pretty good excuse this time!
I am now officially CabinCrochetCreations! I moved to Colorado and am actually living in a cabin at an undisclosed location high in the Rocky Mountains! I closed my Etsy shop several months ago because the platform is super saturated with crochet and knit items. Or people don’t want to pay for a hand crochet doll! Pretty sad when people will buy a pseudo-handmade item at Walmart for less and put money into the pocket of Big Business instead of helping their fellow human being.
I am a VIP for a great community on Instagram called @yarn4less. They DO care about those who create yarn art!
That’s the size of it!
I am still on Instagram but Facebook is very limited due mainly to the slow internet connection up here!
