New direction

My zipper bags have had a make over and are now longer and leaner. They also face a new direction, giving your bag the look and shape of an actual coffee bag. At only $10 a bag these little purses are the ideal way to pamper yourself.

He can reach!

Life as I know it just got a bit more exciting and sewing just got a whole lot harder. I was standing in my kitchen cleaning a bunch of coffee bags that will soon be zipper bags. And as I was finishing I heard a noise coming from our back door. David was standing on his tip toes trying to open the door so he could go outside and play with the dog. He's only 10 months old and I already have to watch the doors!
Guess this means keeping a much, much closer eye on him while I am sewing. Or it means going back to the old way of sewing when I am only half way up (6 in the morning while D is still asleep and I am half asleep). Either way, haha things are changing around here.

A new look

After surfing around on my sister's amazing blog I was compelled to give mine a fresh look....aaaahhhhh! I am so not a computer person. Give me a sewing machine over a computer!

Coffee and biscotti

After an amazing weekend of sewing, showing and selling my bags a cup of coffee and biscotti are just what the doctor ordered. Yum. These biscotti are wonderfully low carb (1.5 each). I got the recipe from my mom a few weeks ago and want to pass it on.

4oz cream cheese, soft
4Tbs butter, soft
4 egg yokes
16 Splenda packets
3 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose wheat flour
1/4 cup Vital wheat gluten flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups while almond meal or unblanched almond flour

Combine and beat cream cheese, butter and 2 egg yokes in the bowl of an electric mixer til thick and smooth and creamy. Add the other 2 yokes and beat for another minute. Add all remaining ingredients at low speed.
Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 300 or 325.
Shape the dough in three rolls about 1 3/4 inches thick in diameter and about 12 inches long. Set the rolls on a nonstick, heavy gauge metal cookie sheet and flatten them into bars about 2 inches wide and 3/4 inch high. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until golden. Cool before slicing.
Set oven to 225. Cut logs into 15 slices. Place pieces back on cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes, or until sufficiently hard.
