Children are always interested in animals and birds, and your little one will be delighted with a "zoo" bedspread. Designed by Mrs. A.J. Lavender in 1918, these simple blocks will fuel your creativity. There are 16 animal squares: song bird, kittens, wolf, fox and chick, donkey, pig, ostrich, rooster, deer, dog, llama, camel, squirrel, horse, goat, rabbit, plus a checkered square to separate the animals. The matching scalloped border (with corner) includes a flying goose, snake, horse, squirrel, lion, mouse, duck, chicken, cat, owl, and rabbit. With several options for variations, you can use this pattern for a simple project, or make a more ambitious crochet thread bedspread with matching curtains and linens. This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern. To make this pattern great for today's crocheter I wrote complete instructions, expanded the written instructions so you won't need to skip around, and made an easy to follow chart. I also changed the written instructions to use modern US crochet terms. The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch.
It was 1981-the year life blew up in eighteen-year-old Leslie J. Hollis' face. She couldn't get out of bed in the morning, and she cried all the time. If she had had the guts, she would have ended her life numerous times. The hurt and sense of worthlessness paled in comparison to death. It was also the year she met Kara, a talented psychotherapist.
Hollis knew life was not supposed to be characterized by constant pain, a longing to be accepted, and anxiety and worries that made it difficult to function. She was a ticking time bomb, imploding with distress. In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis shares the powerful life story of a young girl in search of her true self. She tells how she revisited the pain and isolation of her childhood to unlock the mysteries of the feelings she so desperately needed to escape from.
In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis helps those who feel vulnerable and defenseless and who have no sense of self. She shares how anxiety and pain, although overwhelming at times, can be confronted and treated. Depression and eating disorders can become a part of the past; a rebirth to a new, more productive life awaits. Learn to get out of bed every day and live, love, and laugh.
The House by the Dvina is the riveting story of two families separated in culture and geography but bound together by a Russian-Scottish marriage. It includes episodes as romantic and dramatic as any in fiction: the purchase by the author's great-grandfather of a peasant girl with whom he had fallen in love; the desperate sledge journey in the depths of winter made by her grandmother to intercede with Tsar Aleksandr II for her husband; the extraordinary courtship of her parents; and her Scottish granny being caught up in the abortive revolution of 1905. Eugenie Fraser herself was brought up in Russia but was taken on visits to Scotland. She marvellously evokes a child's reactions to two totally different environments, sets of customs and family backgrounds, while the characters are beautifully drawn and splendidly memorable. With the events of 1914 to 1920 - the war with Germany, the Revolution, the murder of the Tsar and the withdrawal of the Allied Intervention in the north - came the disintegration of Russia and of family life. The stark realities of hunger, deprivation and fear are sharply contrasted with the adventures of childhood. The reader shares the family's suspense and concern about the fates of its members and relives with Eugenie her final escape to Scotland. In The House by the Dvina, Eugenie Fraser has vividly and poignantly portrayed a way of life that finally disappeared in violence and tragedy.
