valentine sugar cookies with new frosting recipe

think yummy for your tummy is gonna suit the name of these just right!

these are the heart shaped ones w/recipe under it. this is the large print paper i use for recipes, not many are actually written out.

got heart ones with pink frosting and for the grand kids for valentines day i got some teddy bears and all the ducks are in a row :}

k got the sugar cookie dough just right, now i experimented 3 different frosting recipes. and finally just a few minutes ago got it just right. light and fluffy, not too sweet.

pic to the left is the original frosting, it's very pale pink

spool of yarn

off white spool of wool from forest farm looks like one started to make a scarf. its wicked heavy. think a lap robe with cables might be in order.


pink heart shaped cookies made with pink frosting (milk and shortening cooked) makes it not sweet and i hope it freezes well or i will have to send frosting in separate container for grandkids to frost themselves.

charity mohair bar harbor shawl

angora yarn scarf, made a few of these for FF

this spool of wool they gave me to make items with. there are a few rows of crochet done, maybe a scarf?

it's like an 8ply yarn, very heavy, am thinking of a laprobe for someone there at FF nursing home. with at least 2 cables and not sure of other stitches i know. want to try the twig stitch soon also.
