Recipes updated, headband pattern and possible new yahoo group...

This Cross Stitch pattern and others can be found here!

I updated my kitchen on Bev's Country Cottage with a couple of yummy sounding recipes - you can find all the recipes I have posted so far here

but here is a sneak peek and thanks for sending those recipes!

Pasta with Roasted Red pepper sauce sent by Gina 1 can(14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes, undrained 1 jar(7ounces) roasted red bell peppers, drained 1 tsp sugar 1/2 tsp ground cumin 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp dried oregano 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp red wine vinegar 1 small onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tbsp olive oil Hot cooked pasta In a blender, combine the first eight ingredients; cover and process until smooth. In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in pepper mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve sauce over pasta.


HEADBAND Pattern to make for shelters etc.,


Copyright 2007, Beverly A Qualheim - All Rights Reserved.
These would be great for LDS Humanitarian, Homeless Shelters, Pine Ridge Reservation etc.

Size 7-10 year old child (pre-teens through adults)
2 oz of worsted weight 4 ply yarn and 2 oz of sock yarn or baby yarn
I used
Red Heart worsted weight 4 ply yarn and 2 oz of Lion Brand Magic Stripes sock yarn for the headband in the photo.
Size 10 knitting needles

Cast on 10 sts (13 sts)
Row 1-78 (86): Knit every row holding the 2 strands of yarns together as one.
Bind off, cutting a 10" tail. Now fold band short ends together. Back stitch 4 sts to secure yarn. Cut yarn. Flip right side out.

Wonderful to give to shelters for this coming cold season, they are small and store easily, plus uses up your scraps of yarn!


I am considering starting a new group to replace my BevsCountryCottage newsletter. This BLOG has really replaced what I used to post on that newsletter, but this is so much better as I can use photos and more.

My vision for the new yahoo group would be one for people making things for LDS Humanitarian.
It would be for sharing pattern links and ideas for items needed by LDS humanitarian and for your local charity needs. We could also share ideas for making a Humanitarian Specialist Calling successful.

You can email me at bevqual at (at standing for @ of course) if you are interested in this. You do not have to be LDS/Mormon, just interested in helping make warm and needed items for people worldwide.

I need to run a child over to the high school for games.

Don't forget you can still order this inspiring fireside

Just to let you know I got your email about not receiving your newsletter anymore, I can understand why, you are one busy bee!

So I put your blog on my links list.
