Sewing & Baking - What are You doing?

My neighbor brought over about 25 peaches from her peach tree, so I thought I would do a really quick and easy cobbler.

Peel all of the peaches and cut up into bite size pieces in a bowl. Next add in either a little flour, corn starch or tapioca to thicken the juices a little. Add about a cup of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. Stir it all together and put in a buttered pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for approximately 20 to 25 minutes until it's all bubbly.

Remove the foil, cover the top with flaky canned biscuits. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of each biscuit. Leave uncovered and put back in the oven at 350 until the biscuits are golden brown. Serve with a dollup of whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy.

Easy as can be and just sooooooooo good. Your family will think you went to a ton of trouble and ask for more.

I showed you my fabric that I found for new pillows, now to figure out which ones to make how big, square, round, oblong, with trim or without and which fabric goes where. Ok, those decisions made, now on to the next step.

This one is going to be the table skirt.

Dining table cleared off and the machine all set up.

Trim and cording all gathered up.

Making the first cuts. Now the fun can really begin.

Well, this is what I am going to be doing all weekend. Hope you all have a super Blessed Holiday and I will see you for Table Top Tuesday. I will have Mr. Linky up Monday evening.

Thanks for coming by. I always appreciate your visits.


  1. Gosh, Marty, I'm doing the same thing this weekend. Have the sewing machine out on the kitchen table. We just bought an old fixer-upper chandy and I sewed a chain cover for it and I'm toying with the ide of trying to make a new valance to match! Can't wait to see your pretty new pillows.

  2. Hi Marty,
    Yummy, your peach cobbler looks delish! And it sounds easy to make too...I think I can handle that :-) Next time I come across some peaches I will definitely have to give it a try...Thank you for sharing the recipe...Oh and can't wait to see your sewing projects all done. Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

    Hugs and Blessings,

  3. I have the most fun making pillows, but have to take a break this week from sewing. I need to really clean house deep not just on the surface. Looking forward to seeing your pillows. Sally

  4. Hi Marty- Boy you sure are talented I wish I knew how to sew. I can't wait to everything done! I just love all the fabric you choose.And that peach cobbler looks YUMMY!!

  5. Marty, that is one great and fast recipe, thank you for sharing! It looks scrumptious! I love to sew and I can't wait to see your pillows and your other accessories, know they will look just beautiful! Have fun!


  6. Marty, I'm redoing the my office and just loving it. It ain't easy being froufrou, ya know, chick.

    That peach "cobbler" looks luscious. I'd prefer apples or berries though, but I guess we have to go with what's available. Your neighbor is very sweet to give you the peaches.


  7. Happy weekend Marty. I can't wait to see your finished pillows.

    Here, JoAnn Fabric is moving into one of the old Circuit City buildings. It will definitely be a huge fabric store. Right now, JoAnn's is in a much smaller space. I'm definitely looking forward to my first visit.

    Your peach dessert looks delicious. Peaches in our part of the world are not ripe yet. Looking forward to that too!

  8. My mouth is watering looking at that cobbler....Enjoy! I look forward to seeing the pillows, the fabric is just lovely. Have a great weekend!

  9. Marty, I spent the morning drowning in fabric in my attic to find what I want for chair pads. Can't wait to see what you do

  10. Your peach cobbler looks so yummy! It made my mouth water :) It must be nice to have neighbors like that.

  11. Marty,
    That peach cobbler looks so simple and yummy...just my style! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  12. Oooh, that peach cobbler looks wonderful! And your pillow fabrics would ALL look good on MY couch! I need to make some new pillows for the warm weather -- my couch looks too wintry right now.

  13. I'm munching on something now (lunch), but it doesn't look as tasty as your peach dish! Loving your skirt fabric. Hope some of your ambitious spirit rubs off on me!!

  14. YUMMY!!! How delish!!!! Looks like you are busy, busy. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

  15. You are certainly industrious. Perfect husband is out of town, so I'm planning on reading and watching the NCIS marathon!

  16. Can't wait to see the finished lovelies you'll create! Terrific fabric choices!

  18. I'll probably be doing some outside work this weekend, but I do plan on taking at least half a day to sit on the patio and read. Your dining room table looks like mine when I have my sewing machine set up! Looking forward to seeing all these projects.

  19. Marty,
    Your cobbler looks great and your fabric projects are going to be wonderful!

  20. My daughter-in-law gave me a dust ruffle to repair, my daughter has a pillow to make, and I must pull out the sewing machine tonight! And peach cobbler is my husband's favorite. What time is dinner?

  21. That cobber looks so good! I don't have fresh peaches I wonder if it will works with can ones! I know it will not taste the same as the fresh one!
    The pillows are going to be beautiful!

  22. The peach cobbler looks so yummy! I love all your fabrics and can't wait to see the finished products.

  25. Two of my favorite things. The cobbler looks wonderful and how fun sewing :).

  26. No sewing for me this weekend. I'll be baking and running! Cupcakes for my little guy's end-of-the-season Little League party tomorrow and then running to a high school reunion tomorrow evening. Visiting a couple of cemeteries on Sunday and then spending a day at home on Monday. Busy Memorial Weekend! Hope you have a safe and happy holiday!

  27. Hi Marty, Looks like your plan is coming together, I can't wait to see everything when you are done! Your cobbler looks so yummy, thanks for sharing your recipe! We are going to have a quiet dinner with family this weekend, my Memorial Day table is all set and ready to go, stop by and take a peek if you want!

  28. Marty, that is my kind of cooking. Mixing the fresh peaches with the easy and delicious topping is my favorite way of cooking. I have Sandra's "Semi Homemade" cookbook. There is a peach tree ...just..over my fence and last year my sweet neighbor brought me a big box of them..hopefully she will again this year. IF she does...guess what I am going to make! :)

    Marty, you are amazing and a true homemaking DIVA! Your home shows so much love and care! I love and admire that!

  29. Hi Marty! Oh, your peach cobbler looks so good and I may just hve to try your recipe!
