Special Edition in London!!!
Amigurumi Thumb Wrestling
Last year my dear blogger friend Jennifer from Squirrel Picnic announced Make it challenge call. Anyone could write suggestions and challenge Jennifer to make something special and unique, something she has never done before. I found it very intriguing and as I was working on one sumo fighter at that time (and was not one easy task to do), I challenged Jennifer to make a Sumo.
Last week I got mail and my very own sumo made by Jennifer arrived!
And not just the sumo! I received a whole wrestlers collection!! Ninja, Luchador and world’s famous Hulk Hogan!
I tried to make a photo with all of them on my fingers, but didn’t manage to focus right so I took different approach and instead of fingers used bunny ears.
These bunny pattern will share with you this week. For now they are my models to show you fabulous, but fabulous thumb…

A little while ago, I was involved in a really fun Monty Python-themed swap on Craftster (I wrote all about it here) and one of the things I made for my partner was a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch! Well, I didn’t exactly write down the pattern as I went, but I more or less remember how I made it – mostly because the bulk of it was from my crochet sphere pattern. So here goes!
First off, I used silver and gold acrylic worsted weight yarn with a 3.75mm crochet hook (but really, just use the size you are most comfortable with). Also, as a tip, try to get yarn that’s labelled ‘silky’ or ‘soft’ because that way it tends to look a little more metallic – especially in the gold and silver colours.
To start off, use gold to make the sphere (it’s the 26 row ideal sphere…

The lamp is a good one.
From time to time I get these unrelenting urges. Just like a junkie needing a fix. I have to build ‘something’ to get my fix. My creative side swells within me, my mind begins obsessing on my next project. My world is truly out of balance unless I feed my addiction to create. From armoires to wooden buckets, these projects aid to take the edge off of life for me.
For a time, I can get lost in my world of thoughts and abate the stresses of life. I view this time as mini sabbaticals. An opportunity for me to rejuvenate my mind and soul, while creating some of the most beautiful and intimate treasures I own, or have blessed others with. The latest victims of my compulsion were a pair of antler lamps, while appropriating my wife’s birthday as the trigger that set me off.
God has not…

Past things should not ever even happen!
Why should the shadows come,?
While they ate the final supper
When the soldiers gave him the crown of thorns
When the betrayer kissed his cheek
When they crucified our Lord
The Father was close by watching
As for sin Christ’s blood was paid
For he had chosen the hour before daybreak
To roll the stone away

Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. (Psalm 36:1)
Relate: Another translation has this verse read: “I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked. There is no fear of God before their eyes.” This translation, the NIV, carries a footnote that offers an alternate rendering of this verse as: “A message from God: The transgressions of the wicked resides in their hearts. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Sin whispers what we want to hear. It seeks to convince us of the lie that we want to believe. That lie might be, “I can handle this.” Or perhaps, “It’s no big deal.” Maybe it is whispering, “I was born this way.” Sometimes I wish sin was a…

There they were in the middle of the road in front of our pick-up. In that situation you need to just put the truck in park and enjoy the scenery because cows never hurry to do anything they don’t want to do.
When people say they’ll wait till the cows come home they may not have had cows of their own. Most of the time my own experience is that they don’t come home at all. Some one has to go and find them, get them all together and then Guide, drive and lead them back to where they need to be!
Their own pasture is safe and green and comfortable but the break in the fence line beckons them with an allure to a new and potentially dangerous place (in this case the middle of the road!) I am so glad that God calls us…

I hate how everything is not right away and just so that you say you mean when this is just annoyed my spirit and it is supposed to be in truth and never ever lie on that too.
Do you really know yourself? Would you say that you are physically, spiritually, and emotionally well-balanced? Are you secure enough to say, “You feed on a healthy diet that nurtures your spirit, soul, and body?”
I look around me and constantly see believers who are spiritually malnourished, emaciated in their souls, and physically oppressed.
I believe the reason so many people are walking around with anemic lives is because they do not truly understand the diversity, yet interdependence between the spirit, soul, and body.

Last Supper on the word.
As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying,“Take this and eat it, for this is my body.” (Matthew 26:26)
Relate: If there is one name associated with the Protestant Reformation, it would be Martin Luther. Common tradition has it that he nailed those ninety-five thesis to the door of the Wittenburg Castle Church and the reformation swept over Europe like a flood. What this doesn’t take into account is that there were other men, like Erasmus who were already pushing reform before Luther and plenty of others, chief among them Zwingli, who were starting reformation movements almost simultaneously in other areas. There was actually a moment when these two men came together to see if they could combine their two reformation movements under one banner…
