Announcing Quick Finishes Needlework Magazine!

Dear Needlework Friends,

How many of you have a “Bucket List” of things you want to accomplish in your lifetime?

For me, Quick Finishes Magazine is one to check off. I love the thought of giving customers an online Magazine which includes Quick Projects in Cross Stitch, Crochet, Knitting, Sewing, and Plastic Canvas, at an inexpensive price.

At 52, I am a fan of the vintage magazines which have done this. Eventually those were bought by bigger companies which used the patterns in their books, or as e-patterns, sold individually. But the idea has always intrigued me.

If you saw my “office’ (ok, bedroom), you would see buckets of unfinished designs. I started my business in 1995, with Crochet designs. I still love to sit with a hook, thread, pen, and paper, although my handwriting does not help deciphering these later…

The past few years have been busy ones… I started caring for my Granddaughter as a baby, and she is now 3 1/2. So, if some of you wonder if Linen Flowers/Timeless Handwork is still designing, the answer is YES. (She loves to see the “majic” of the crochet chain as you pull it and it disappears!)

So, without further ado, here is the Premier Issue of Quick Finishes Magazine, the October Issue, “Decorate The Tree.”

God bless you,

Angie

P.S. In the December Issue (Quick Finishes is published every two months), look for many “Snowflake” designs, including my Cross Stitch version of the elusive, “Swirly Snow…”

August 2017 New Cross Stitch Releases- Blackwork, Roses

Dear Needlework Friends,

Another summer has gone so quickly- I hope it was a lovely one where you are! Growing flowers is a favorite past-time of mine, and  I especially enjoyed seeing ones that I planted from seed years ago, finally bloom. (Poppies, Ironweed, etc.)

As Autumn draws near, I’d like to share 2 new releases, and one recent one.

“Tranquility” repeats motifs over and over, yet combines these to form a lacy Blackwork Cross which is so peaceful to look at. The 4 thread shades can easily be changed to suit your decor.

“My Shepherd,” is an elegant Blackwork and Cross Stitch Sampler which says, “My Shepherd’s been this way before me, and He knows the path I tread.” Those who have suffered trials in their lives will understand how much our faith helps us through them.

A recent release which has not been featured before in our Newsletter is, “Serenity.” Inspired by The Serenity Prayer, it says, “Lord, please give Your wisdom to accept all things as from Your hand, with grace.”

The GREAT RECIPE I am enclosing is a very simple one with potatoes and bacon- yet you will enjoy it, even as leftovers.

Thank you for being a valued part of Linen Flowers/Timeless Handwork!

GREAT RECIPES- Potatoes, Bacon, And Corn

In a medium saucepan, dice 4 washed, unpeeled potatoes. Cover with water- turn on High. Add 2 cups frozen corn and 1 tsp. salt. Bring this to a boil, then turn heat to Medium.

Meanwhile, dice and microwave 1 pkg. pre-cooked bacon on paper towels 3 minutes or until crisp. Lay aside.

Cook potatoes and corn just until potatoes are tender, then drain water off in a colander. Do not add back to pan yet.

Add 1/4 c. butter to the pan, and turn heat back on until it’s melted. Add the bacon, 1/4 tsp. oregano and 1/4 tsp. parsley. Let this cook about 5 minutes, then add potatoes and corn, and stir well with a spatula to blend.

This is very quick, and good as leftovers, or even frozen for another meal.

New “Remember I Love You” Cross Stitch, Plus A Faith-Based Wall Quilt To Sew

Dear Needlework Friends,

I hope you are having beautiful weather in your area. Here in Iowa, we are beginning to see the green growth of many Spring flowers peeking out of the ground.

Though Valentine’s Day has passed, with our giving of chocolate and flowers, the sweet sentiment of this new Cross Stitch Release, “Remember I Love You,” will live on. The Design Set includes a Bookmark, and can be stitched with a Pink or Red Rose.

In my home, I wanted to sew a Wall Quilt for my hallway which would draw in the eye with its vintage fabrics- using Fans, Scallops, and a Celtic Cross as the focal point. The “Faith And Fans Wall Quilt” is the result. Though made in Browns and Teals, it could be sewn in any two colors to match your home. It would also make a lovely gift for someone that you care for.

The GREAT RECIPE I am including in this Newsletter is quick and simple- Tortilla Dip. It’s easy to mix up, and very good served with tortilla chips.

May God bless you and your families,

Angie

3 New Blackwork Designs from Linen Flowers

 

Dear Stitching Friends,

One of the things I enjoy most in life is learning to play the piano… so it is only natural that the piano would make it into one of the newest Blackwork Designs.

2 other new Blackwork Designs feature a masculine cross, and a celebration of love for couples, with only their first names.

Blackwork is so much fun to design, and stitch. If you like Blackwork, I hope that you enjoy these.

Thank you,

Angie

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

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

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.

New Cross Stitch Releases At The Counted Wishes Festival, Plus A Complimentary Doorprize

Dear Stitching Friends,

If you love Needlework Designs, you will enjoy visiting The Counted Wishes Festival at http://countedwishes.com March 15-21.

The Festival offers a unique opportunity for Independent Designers to show stitchers what’s “New And Different” in design.

What I love about being part of this Festival is that, though small, there is nothing else like it in our business!

Retail Designers who participate in the Festival show that quality of design does exist in retail, and it’s in this venue that you will find designs which are not seen in every Needlework store. I am constantly amazed at the beautiful designs and talent represented in each Counted Wishes Festival.

Deena Hosmer, Festival owner and behind- the- scenes IT whiz, takes a lot of pride in putting together a professional and exciting show for visitors. Besides browsing the designs, you will find Show Specials, Complimentary designs to take home, and games and prizes.

It’s an important show for both Designers and Stitchers, and we hope that you will stop by the Festival, and tell your friends in stitching groups about it.

Thank you,

Angie Kowalsky
