Spring Flowers

I am trying to will spring to come.  Yes, yes, I know it’s officially here, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.  There are streaks of sunlight, but it’s quickly gobbled up by ominous clouds and cold rain.  Making spring cookies was my way of letting Mother Nature know that it needs to warm up a bit.  My friend, Carri-Anne, wanted to learn how to make and decorate sugar cookies, so we make the cookies earlier in the week and decorated them on Saturday, while our husbands were supposed to watch Matthew.  He’s such a cute little boy, who wouldn’t want to watch him? lol  This bear came from his great-grandmother.  He looks like he’s ready for some cookies and tea.

I made these sugar cookies about two months ago, when the weather was cold, the lure of Christmas was over, and Valentine’s had not yet arrived.  I brought them into my work so Eric and I didn’t eat them all.  Plus, it was the end of the semester, and sugar goodies always help teachers get through grading those last essays and tests. 

These are whimsical flowers, using two square sizes.

Other than the ladybug, I don’t know what you’d call these–swirly? Continue reading
