Added green

Forgot to update with a finished photo - now blocked.  The added green is a nice touch :)

Happy New Year~!

Crochet doily..

This is an unfinished small "doily" I am crocheting...
almost looks like a rose with wings.  It will look lacier once it is blocked and set; will post photos when it is finished.

The crochet pattern is free from BellaCrochet; I am using size 10 crochet thread.

This I know...

By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. psalm 41:11

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this know; for God is for me. psalm 56:9

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 timothy 1:12
