This weeks recipe is from Barb. This is my "go to" dish whenever I am asked to bring a dish to pass.
They are soooo good! I always get asked for the recipe. I was telling some of the girls in a class about
these baked beans and they said we should put the recipe on the newsletter every year. These really are
the best!



1 large glass jar of Great Northern Beans
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup catsup
1 can fried onion rings
2 T. vinegar
2 T. Molasses
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled

Combine above ingredients and put in 2 quart casserole and cover. Bake for 2 hours at 350º . Not only
are these delicious, they are quite easy to make. Enjoy!

Sanibel is our fashion yarn: understated, feminine
and chic, with a touch of glitz that makes a
statement for both daytime and evening wear .The
drape is alluring, the hand soft, and the palette
sophisticated. Sanibel is perfect for anyone who
wants a little excitement in their stash.


Santorini's colorways sing along the matte and
shiny textures inherent in the yarn, adding vibrant
color to warm-weather garments, wraps and scarves.
