Sunday Afternoon Making Cookies!

There is nothing better than a Sunday afternoon in the kitchen with someone you love
making cookies. It doesn't happen very often.

For those of you who know me well. I don't cook a lot. My husband is a much better cook than me. He bought the bosh this Christmas (for me, ha ha) I think he's telling
me something!


This is my mothers recipe. These were my favorite cookies growing up.


Oatmeal Scotchies
(we changed the recipe just a bit, used chocolate chips instead of
butterscotch chips, no nuts, or raisins) just the way I like them.

This recipe is huge, it makes a lot of cookies (caution, don't cut it down, it never turns out the same) give them away to a neighbor or relative!

I hope you can spend an afternoon with someone you love making something very delicious!

2 Cups butter
4 Cups Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
4 Teaspoons Vanilla
3 Cups Four
1/2 Cup Wheat Flour
1 Cup Wheat Germ
2 Teaspoons baking soda
2 Teaspoons Salt
4 Cups coconut
4 Cups Oats
2 Cups Nuts (optional)
or 2 Cups butterscotch chips or raisins (we use real chocolate chips)

Enjoy! You will love them

A Quick Hello......

Life is getting busy. Quilt market is in about 6 weeks give or take a couple of days. Okay so I'm in denial this week is just about over leaving me realistically 5 weeks. Yikes! Or maybe I don't have a calendar in front of me. Anyway. I've got ten minutes before I have to swing over to the local Chinese joint and pick up dinner! My life is getting very interesting....maybe crazy is a better word. Our photo shoot for pattern fronts is in the morning.....I'll have to hit target tonight for a couple quick things, I'm sure I've forgotten. I will be in touch I promise! Just wanted to say hello. Thank you for visiting! (I'm still working on the video's)

A Little Vacation....Back to work.

We went on our yearly vacation to McCall. For those of you who have never been. It's a must! We love it. We go every year with my sister. We sit on the beach...get in the boat, ski, wake board.....sit on the beach.....sit on the beach some more.....this year I got in the boat, but not in the water. yah I know what a wimp. There is always next year!

I always have to do a little work while on vacation. I can't give it all up. So we took the girls on an outing! I worked on my photography skills which apparently need alot of work! It was LOTS OF FUN.

Here are a few sneak peaks of COMING SOON Kati Cupcake Patterns!

Technical Difficulties

We are experiencing technical difficulties......I've been working on the Mitered Corner Receiving Blanket Video all night, with no success. I think the video is to large. I am going to try again. If I can not get it to work. I will post a tutorial instead. Sorry!
