Flower and Verse: Romans 8:35-37

Romans 8:35-37
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through hi
m that loved us.

Stuffed Animal Collectio: Becky's Been Busy!

Hi everyone! It's been a while, and I have been busy, busy, busy! This fall Jenn and I have been making hand knit dishcloths with special designs on them! Sher Con took the pumpkin one we made first, - He called it a blanket! - Jenn is still just a little upset about that, but honestly for us stuffed animals it's big enough to be a blanket to us. But we want you to know their purpose is washing dishes. - especially the holiday ones! - Right, especially the holiday dishes. It adds a festive mood to the less than desirable chore of clean up after all that feasting and holiday cooking, (or so I've been told).
Anyway, we've been busy knitting and documenting the designs so we can show everyone how to make them, they are just so fun! We've made four so far and will take them with us to the service auction. Later, Chi Chi will report how much they went for. It should be loads of fun! Last year we took 2. A pumpkin, and a Christmas tree and both went for around 100 service $. the pumpkin was Just under the Christmas tree a little over. It made us feel really good about how well liked they were, so this year as we work, we are writing what we do.
There's still lots of editing to do, but we have a healthy head start to next years project - Holiday Design Dishcloth patterns! I'm excited 'cause we can include all the holidays and even some flower ones for spring! I love flowers, they're so tasty! - for monkeys anyway - Humans don't have the stomach to digest them, Jenn says that's ok she just likes to smell and look at them. - And draw them of course!
Well, I'd better get back to work. we have a lot more flower postcards to make before the end of the year!

Stuffed Animal Collection: Jenn commits treason.

Dear Friends,
Although Sher Con has claimed the pumpkin dish cloth I have made as his blanket, and has indicated that more will be made for his "Throne room" guests, and distributed to the poor at the service auction, I would like you all to know I haven't forgotten you. I have been creating patterns and detailed instructions for these dish cloth "Blankets" so you can make some for yourselves and your friends and family. Also what does not make it to the auction, will be put on sale, regardless of if the king needs them for his "Throne room". they are my hand knit creations, and no cuddly kitty, King or otherwise is going to stop me from selling MY stuff.
as the patterns are created I will be preparing to list them for sale as digital files through my handmade art and craft shop on etsy.
If you have a particular Idea, and would like to know if I could make it into a pattern, or would just like me to make it, please send me a message on Facebook, or email me with the detailed request.
so far I have a pumpkin a jack o lantern a Christmas tree a present a flag a star a turkey a witch a heart with love in the center, a ring with 4 ever in the middle a leaf a clover (3 leaf)
all of these have been drawn out, but need to be digitalized, and the instructions written. I write as I make the product so the pattern instructions can be precise. I hope you will all enjoy. As always any questions or comments are welcome  Email, Facebook, or Twitter

PS. If it's treason to sell my stuff when the King needs it, Then I will definitely commit treason. (I may have to knit for you all from Sher Con's prison. lol!
