From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL -10/10/20:
There is something special about a September
Florida morning. While the heat and humidity is still high, there is something
about the morning mist and the slight lessening of the sun rays and the day's
length that tell me nice days will soon be coming our way. The wonders of God's
natural blessings are oh, so present on a sunny September morning. His loving
grace overwhelms me and so I must praise Him, too. How about you?
Thank you, Jimmy - works for me!

|BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS:|
Linda Permann's I Heart Yarn Badge - "I love yarn because it
is soft, colorful, and soothing to touch. I love to pore over the colors
and fibers, petting each one and determining what it might want to
become. To me, a ball of yarn represents endless possibilities, and it's
so fulfilling to make exactly what I want from a pretty ball of string."
Ellen Gormley's Icy Day Cowl - "Ellen designed the Icy Day Cowl to join in with I love Yarn Day. It has many of the features Ellen loves about crochet. The cowl allows the Yarn to be the star! When meeting a new luscious yarn, the first thing I want to do is ‘hug’ it. A cowl is perfect for holding yarn near. Yarn allows creativity while making a productive, functional item. Nothing is more satisfying that making a beautiful item that can be used."
Vanna White's Mitered Diamonds Throw - "My love of yarn began when my grandmother taught me to crochet. Crafting was so much more than a hobby to her. It was a way to share her love with everyone around her. As a mother, it was important for me to pass on my love of yarn. Now, my daughter and I love to shop for yarn and crochet together. I’m thrilled to be able to share my affordable, easy-care yarns so that everyone can share their love with the people who matter most."
