It didn’t even occur to me that is was December until I started reading all of my networking sites this morning! ARGHHH! It was bound to happen. I am BEHIND. I have a cookie I could post for today, but I just don’t like him…poor Peanut…maybe he can hang out on my FlickrPage. As for me, I will have to resort to plan B today. I have a lot of old favorite cookie collections that haven’t made it back onto the new blog. I told myself that if I ever got dreadfully behind, I would use it as an opportunity to get those back up. So…here you go.
I named these cookies the Opal collection after my great-grandmother Opal who used to make crocheted satin Christmas ornaments, that looked much like these! Neither she nor my mom ever successfully taught me to knit or crochet, but I sort of made my own way, I crochet with icing, LOL!
Since I feel bad for letting everyone down on the cookie-a-day thing, I plan on making it up to everyone! Stay tuned for a giveaway, and a tutorial. December has really put me in the giving mood, and I am planning giveaways all month long!
We all have Plan B days which is why that is my company's name, besides it's also my name. The cookies are beautiful.
Love these cookies! I have some of the original ornaments too!
Stunning! Your great-grandma would be very, very proud of you.
Those are no let down! Those are gorgeous!!! Your piping skills are fantastic. Can't wait to see what you have in store tomorrow! 🙂
Ahhhh, an oldie but goodie and one of my favorites! It's the first cookie of yours that I tried to replicate. Of course it was no where near as good as yours. I see that design pop up on other's blogs/flickr pages all the time and I always think of you. :o)

Great 'crochet' work – these are so dainty and pretty looking!
Oh. My. Gosh. I'm a first time visitor and totally TOTALLY blown away. You are amazing! I just scrolled through (I need to be working but I just. can't. tear. myself. away.) and saw your Day of the Dead cookies. Have I said "blown away" already? Yeah.
You are sickly talented (in a good way)! I love how you knit/crochet.
GOrgeous, as usual!
If my cookies came out 1/2 as good as yours…..I'D BE THRILLED!
Fantastic job! so inspiring.
These lacy guys are beautiful. I’ve been looking at your creations off and on all day. Loved the ice cream cones, especially the one you “dropped” I would have never thought of that! How wonderfully creative you are. You inspire me.

Ahhh beautiful colours and laces! Everytime I see those colours, i am so tempted to try royal icing but I don’t dare! Can I just half the 101 royal icing recipe for a smaller quantity and what type of colouring should I use?
