My sewing machine is in the repair shop, bless it's little mechanical heart, so I've decided to post about my other love in life besides quilting...and my husband...so I guess that would make it my "other other" love. I'm a foodie. Completely. Obsessed. With. Food. I love reading about it, watching cooking shows, making it, and naturally...eating it. I have nearly every spice known to man in my kitchen cabinets, and just as many pots, pans, & gadgets. Moving to New Orleans was like heaven to me...but I digress. One of my closest friends at work is getting married next weekend (yay!) and we threw a surprise shower for her last Friday. She's about the sweetest and most selfless person on Earth, so I volunteered to make some very labor-intensive (but adorable!) shower favors. I chose to make sugar cookies with royal icing because 1) they're awesome and 2) they can be morphed into cute shapes.
