Cobbler and a couple new totes...

 This time of year there is so much delicious fresh fruit out there...so I thought I'd share a really easy, fast cobbler recipe...
Wisk together 1 cup each of flour, sugar and milk...I use non fat...but I don't think it matters. Also, wisk in 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 tablespoon of vanilla...that's it...oh before I forget...I'm so lame when it comes to giving directions...first preheat the oven to 350 degrees...I use my counter top convection oven this time of year...take a 8 x 8 glass pan...put in a stick of butter in the pan and let it melt in the preheating oven...you can be wisking the ingredients in the bowl while the butter is melting...why melt it in the pan you say...save your dishes...it just goes on the bottom of the pan after...
 For this one I used blueberries and raspberries...peach is wonderful too...I make a lot of peach this time of year because of our tree...anyway...any soft fruit works...1 pint...or about 2 cups is good...
 When your butter is melted...you pour in the ingredients from the bowl...VERY IMPORTANT...don't stir it...it looks like this...
 Next... put in the fruit...sort of spread it out a little...that's it...don't mix...just pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes...
 It comes out like this...sort of spongy and oh so good...this is Don's favorite...I think he could eat it everyday...and believe me...its so easy I don't mind making it for him! A little vanilla ice cream on top...and Yum!! I made this one yesterday...I thought a little red and blue dessert for the 4th would be perfect.
 I have been trying to make more tote bags these days...I have a craft show coming up on the 13th...and my Etsy shop can also use some love...here's one I finished...I left it simple...this fabric doesn't need much. The button on the flower...which has a pin back...is a vintage leather covered button I found...I've had it for a while and I think it is perfect on this bag....
 The inside...my typical lots of pockets...
 Here's another one...more Riley Blake fabric...I love polka dots...I appliqued some wool flowers and used big yellow buttons for the centers of the flowers instead of wool...I thought it gave more dimension...
 Here's the back...
 I hand applique all of my wool...so many people ask if I machine sew it...nope! I love to hand sew it on...
 More insides...I love this lining fabric...so happy!
The weather seems to be cooling off a little...finally some relief! We watched fireworks with our neighbors...there are so many illegal ones that its crazy...they are huge too...like going to a professional show...we live on the edge of a dry river bed...so many of the neighbors walked down the street with folding chairs in hand and we parked ourselves there...no trees over there...we saw many shows all around...until we noticed someone lit a huge tree on fire across the gully....that's what we call the half mile wide river bed...It looked like a giant match...scary! As much as I enjoyed watching...it is very dangerous...amateurs out there with these huge fireworks. I'm surprised more things don't catch fire! I hope you had a safe and fun Independence Day!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Cobblers and crisps are my favorite and this one looks easy and oh, so buttery. I am saving this recipe. I love both the new bags. I still use mine all the time and those inside pockets are my favorite!
