Welcome to the first day – and my day! – of the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange…and Christmas Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt! I always look forward to this blog hop which Carol hosts each year. Carol and Joan, of Moosestash Quilting, host monthly blog hops and they are always fun, even though I don’t get to participate in all of them. Here is the schedule for 2024 that you can check out. Sign up for their blogs to keep up with what’s shaking!!
Our directive was to share a recipe and, if we want, our favorite holiday quilts, decorations, and traditions! First I’ll share my very favorite recipe! Here in the south one of our favorite cookies is the old fashioned tea cake. If you are unfamiliar with these cookies, they are similar to a short bread or sugar cookie, not too sweet, but taste wonderful. Plus, they can be cut and decorated just like your favorite sugar cookie. I prefer mine just plain! Here is the recipe.
Here are some in-the-hoop mug rugs I made for this blog hop. I’m kind of addicted to these rope mug rugs!!
Thanks for dropping by! Here is the schedule for today and the rest of the week! Be sure to hop on by and grab some great recipes and get some stitchy holiday inspiration!
Have a great week! Until next time…
