New Cross Stitch Coffee And Treats Bellpull And Patriotic Design, Plus Crochet Bear Pattern

Dear Needlework Friends,

With Memorial Day behind us, and The 4th Of July ahead, we remember America’s soldiers, and the price they have paid for our freedom. Thank you to all who have served our country.

“Tribute To Freedom” is our newest “Wheel Sampler Design.” This American Flag Cross Stitch Design is especially appropriate for those who love our country, or who have served in the armed forces.

With July and August coming, we are excited to release our final Coffee And Treats Monthly Bellpull Series, featuring ice cream and brownies in peach and teal tones.

And making its first appearance is the Crochet “Rest Easy” Bear, a pattern that was made in both terry cloth and cotton yarns. (Both are gifts for my Grand-daughter and new great-nephew).

In closing, I leave you with a GREAT RECIPE which will help with a last minute meal idea.

May God bless you,

Angie

Rest Easy Bear- #48TH

Though this bear is designed to sit handsomely on the shelf, she (or he) is easy to hug and love! Easy to crochet, The Rest Easy Bear can be made in the smaller or larger versions simply by adjusting the size of the yarn, and hooks used. Both Female and Male Scarf patterns are included in the design. The yarn shown in the large bear model uses super bulky terry cloth yarn, while the yarn used in the smaller bear model uses 3 strands of worsted weight cotton.

Stitch For Mother’s Day

Dear Needlework Friends,

Here in Iowa, It seems fitting that the beautiful Lilacs are in bloom just for Mother’s Day.

As this special day approaches to honor women of all ages, we would like to stop work on other designs, and release this special Cross Stitch Tribute, “A Mother Sampler And Bookmark.” (Some of you quick stitchers may be able to finish the bookmark before Mother’s Day).

The text on both projects says, “A Mother Is The Beauty Of God’s Hand At Work.”

Thank you to those who have been patiently waiting for the last of the Coffee And Treats Monthly Bellpull Series, which will be next. (Some of you know that, 2 years ago, I became Guardian to my little Grand-daughter, now 2. So I apologize for the delay in getting this last design out of the series. At 50, I am thankful that God has given me the strength and help, and it has been a joyous time to watch her grow).

I’m enclosing a recipe that we enjoy at our house, even the little one. It’s called Pizza Bread, and it is easy to stir up and prepare.

To all of the women who read this, please have a very Happy Mother’s Day. Even if you are not a Mother, most likely, you have influenced someone in your life who appreciates it.

God bless you,

Angie

Navy fabric is recommended for this design; however, by changing the white backstitching to another color, white fabric may be used.

GREAT RECIPES- PIZZA BREAD

1 pkg. yeast

1 TBSP. honey

2 cups water (one hot, one warm)

1 tsp. salt

4 cups flour

1 stick butter

Pepperoni

1 small package shredded mozzarella cheese

Garlic Salt

Garlic Powder

Parmesan Cheese

Stir honey into 1 cup hot water, to dissolve. Add the remaining cup of warm water, to cool slightly. Add yeast and let sit about 5 minutes. Add salt, and flour, stirring well. Stir in the cheese, a heavy sprinkle of Garlic Powder, and a handful of Pepperoni, chopped. Melt the stick of butter in a 9 x 14″ pan. (Do not burn). Spread dough in buttered pan, covering top of dough with butter as you press. Sprinkle with Garlic Salt and Parmesan Cheese. Let dough rise 1 hour in warm oven (turned off). Then turn to 350 degrees and cook about 21 m. or until lightly browned on top (too long will make the bread tough). Take out, and cut into squares. The squares freeze well in a large ziploc bag.
