    Those are really cute. I'm puzzled. What did you use for the "thread"?

    They are adorable. It looks like twine as the thread. Maybe you could use thing licorice. Doesn't Twislers make a thin rope candy that can be separated? I'll surely have to try making these.

    Just took a look at your LA website and your work is awesome.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    This is bakers twine. However my hubby suggested the thin licorice.

    The recipe is just a basic sugar cookie recipe. I plan on doing a tutorial in the near future. Stay Tuned!

    Debbie, Twislers's does make a thin licorice. My hubby suggested that when he say me sewing with twine. He is a fast learner!

    Hi Joyce,

    I didn't think of licorice at the time. And 44 girls at the retreat survived--I told them they could use it as dental floss if need be!

    Those are just too cute and a good idea for a sewing group refreshment. I'll watch for the tutorial so I can make some for treats at one of our meetings.

    What a great idea for a quilt retreat treat! Yep, the black licorice would be great for the "ties" on those cookies. Looks like you had a great time also. And I agree, your long arm quilting is fabulous! If only ......

    I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and saved it. They used royal icing in a very thin strip to make the "thread" so they could make it edible. I participate in a cookie exchange each year and plan to make them for that.

    Finished two sets of 8 placemats for my mom. I found the material for the next boom and will wash and start cutting next week to have it ready to go! Won't have any time until January so best to have it ready. I have an idea of what I want to do with your F8ths already.... always planning.
    I sent three things to a friend so she could practice her long arm - so three things off my pile!! I love making the tops - but dislike sandwiching and quilting it. So I was more than willing when she asked if I had anything
    Everyone stay warm - hope you enjoyed the extra hour this morning !!

    Those cookies are just the 'bee's knees.' Clever!

    These are so cute. Sorry to be a pest but what did you use to make the holes? I'm not much of a baker but I might give these a go.
