Sticky needles

It was great to have a day off from the house project for the first time in a while, and I'm glad to rejoin the ranks of the clean clothed and mud free. Friend and fellow blogger Carrie came over for a lesson in sugar cookie cutouts with royal icing. We met at the baking supply store and picked up some goodies for decorating first, and then floured, rolled, baked and decorated the afternoon away. I even made us a yummy lunch of a revised version of the Artichoke Dip from last weekend and fresh fruit. We both gobbled it up.

Here's my finished little cookie garden:

And specially for our friend and fellow food, knitting and creativity blogger Mariko of Super eggplant

It's a cookiepeep...isn't that just the cutest thing ever?

Carrie even did the clean up! Once we managed to de-ice ourselves we got a little knitting in, too. I'm happy to report that I've finally completed section 16 of the Color on Color scarf and I'm ready to attatch section 12. Whoohoo! I'll have pictures tomorrow.

Hi Lara,
I can't wait to see your pictures! I'm nearly finished with section 10, and then I need to go buy some smaller needles to get started on the first Fair Isle section.
Looking forward to your pics.
Those are the cutest cookies ever! If I could get on a plane to Minnesota RIGHT NOW, I would! Love all your food goodies. Can't wait to see what you cook up next!
