Boys

As in COWBOYS. Many months back I fell in love with and bought 3 yards of the cutest cowboy fabric in the world {I think its called Barn Dance - from JoAnn's}. I've used it for multiple projects -- a diaper bag, this patch appliqued on a white t-shirt, and...


to make Stephen Small's CHRISTMAS STOCKING! Made in July and finally posting. You better believe it will be overflowing with Reese's peanut butter cups and a new set of PJ's come Christmas morn. I plan to have it monogrammed eventually. Just haven't gotten that far.


And speaking of BOYS...
How about some gingerbread boys? or rather men?


I used McCormick's recipe and I give it 2 thumbs up!


A few notes...
Dough is sticky, so be liberal with the flour when rolling out.
I found it easier to cut my dough into fourths and roll out smaller pieces instead of the whole lump.
I also discovered that cookies did best on 350 degrees for only EIGHT minutes, but mine were small. The important thing is to not overcook! 

Merry Christmas!

I'm a sucker for good cowboy fabric. I wish I could justify Cath Kidston's because it is gorgeous!
