Since I'm on here posting about PB&J cookies I'll take an extra few mintues and tell you what's been going on her, or what's going to be going on..

I've lived in Michigan my WHOLE life, but NEVER been to Mackinac to watch the fireworks, WELL this year WE ARE GOING!! Hubby's job is working out so that we are heading up north for a week!! YES!! We are all very excited.. I get to watch the fireworks from St. Ignace. We are camping on Lake Michigan at a campground. We have a really busy weekend and week because we are leaving on Thursday, and I have to pack the camper. Hubby just got to slide out on the camper out for me, so I can get into my pantry and get it loaded.

Sunday I have a fitting for a bridal party (very excited!))
Monday appointment for WIC and picking strawberries
Tuesday we are making strawberry Jam!!
Wednesday we have eye doc. appt

Oh and yea in the mix I have to load the camper, dig out my canning jars from the shed, get the house ready to be empty for a week and all the stuff that goes along with normal life...

but all that work will be well worth it.. You see if won't just be us going... there will be about a dozen or so of us from Marks family going and we are going to have a BLAST... We've got our dinners planned and everything....

Well I better get busy!!!

PB&J cookies!!!

If you've read my blog much, than you know I love making up recipes and trying new ones.. Well a few comments on facebook prompted this one. I was making peanut butter cookies anyhow and decided to try making them into PB&J..

I just made the usual peanut butter recipe and than make a hole with my thumb and added a glob of strawberry jelly. I cooked them like regular ones and they worked just fine. The only down side is, you can eat them hot like PB cookies, HOT jelly is REALLY HOT lol.. So try it, everyone seemed to like them..

Oh the kids think there wasn't enought jelly lol. Because once you cook them the cookie spreads and the jelly melts in a little lol. Amber suggests adding more after you pull them out of the oven. I'm thinking we'll just make a bigger hole or something...

My newest sewing project...

I've been busy lately. Well we turned off our satellite television and even thou I didn't think i watched it alot, I have more free time, sooooo I've been able to get more sewing done... I've not have alot of time to type however, because I sew when Abigail is sleeping (and not on my lap)... Anyhow, here's my latest projects. I seen the idea a few years ago and we did a pillow for my MIL along the same lines..
I've started my own sewing business and have a website to help get the word out..

Here's somethings I will be putting on there.. I only have one done, but several in the process... It's a bag that has a iris applique on one side and a pocket on the other. The blue iris part is aprox the size of a sheet of paper. Perfect library bag, or church bag... I also have this bag identical but the iris is pink.

This is going to be my favorite so far. They started out as bags, but I think they will make a beautiful set of Satin rose bed pillows.. The stem will fold over to the other side. They are opposite of each other and I think will look very elegant when they are done. As you can see they are quite large..

I'll keep you posted on how it all goes. The satin pillows are coming along very well. So far i've not had to buy any thing for these. I even had the applique interfacing already.. Hmmm how much can i see homemade, each unique bags for????
I have a few more ideas for pictures, so we'll see how far we get...
