  1. Hi Rose,
    I will enter. I always love your work. I am happily working on that Santa. I hope to get it finished soon. My favorite cookie is Molasses Cookies. I make them over and over. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Very cute bag! I am finishing some embroidery of Santas. We love my mother's recipe for ginger crinkles. It is almost 50 degrees and very sunny here in Colorado so a little hard to be " in the mood" for baking.

  3. Rose,

    Just love the string Bag:). I love all your creations.
    My FAVORITE cookie is a Raisin filled cookie. My mother has been making them since I was a child. She is 94.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family and to everyone blogging:)

  4. What a cute (and useful) bag! My FAVORITE Christmas cookie.......oh there are so many......but if I had to pick one I think it would be 7 Layer Bars (or Magic Cookie Bars as some call them). Merry Christmas!

  5. I too am a big fan of your designs and this one I love also. My favorite is a little different - one that my mother made during the holidays. It's basically a brown sugar dough, rolled and cut in circles, then filled with a nut filling and folded in half to form half moons. The filling is milk and nuts and seasonings cooked until it forms a paste. Reminds me of simpler times when we had time to make such a thing.
    Thanks so much. Dorothy

  17. My all time favorite Christmas cookie is a date nut pinwheel...passed down from my mother. My mother in law loved them too but could not ever master them so I would make her a log to freeze so she could just slice and bake them whenever.

  18. Just an old fashioned sugar cookie with icing and sprinkles with a cup of hot chocolate.

  19. What a cute idea to keep string at hand in the kitchen! I make my great Aunt's old fashioned sugar cookie recipe with jelly inbetween and they have a small Christmas cutout in the top cookie. They take 11+ cups of flour to make one batch and take a good part of the day to make.....we do not give this family recipe to just anyone!! lol My mother has the original recipe in my great Aunt's handwriting in a frame in her kitchen...a wonderful Christmas tradition. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Darlene

  28. My favorite Christmas cookies are the spritz ones my mom always made - some were dipped in chocolate and then in colored sprinkles. She baked dozens of different types, froze them, and then at Christmas everyone got to enjoy them and take home a tray. Thanks for the opportunity to share a happy Christmas memory.

  29. Thank you for the chance to win such a wonderful prize. My favorite Christmas cookie is a sugar cookie that my best friends mom made many years ago. They are not too sweet with a touch of nutmeg. Not a ton of frosting or sugar on top. I just love them. My daughter makes them for me now. Such a treat. Merry Christmas!

  30. Hi Rose...LOVE you and your work...You always make the stitching/project sound so simple, but then you have been doing it for awhile...would treasure having a "Rose Clay original"...I just love my Mom's snickerdoodles...the cinnamon offsets the sweet sugar, and they're pretty...always like seeing you around lititz...

  45. My favorite cookie is a pizzelle cookie, my husbands grandmother made them every Christmas for him when he was a boy. He now carries on the tradition every year.

  46. My favorite cookie is called babes wrapped in swaddling clothes from an old Frugal Gourmet Christmas cookbook. Happy holidays!

  47. What a fun purse! I love your wool choices; it looks great. My favorite Christmas cookie is the traditional spritz cookies. I think it's tied to memories of when I was a young girl baking with my mother. I haven't been able to have spritz for years, as I can't have gluten, but I'm sure one of the wonderful GF bakers "out there" would have a good recipe for them.

  48. Hello Rose. No doubt about it ....sugar cookies in the shape of santa with extra thick icing put on by grandkids. They are the best. I look forward to new patterns from your shop and am busy working on the ones I've already bought but this one is really cute and what crafter can't use it? Happy holidays to you and the rest of your readers.

  49. I love reading your blog. It's soothing and always provides me with inspiration. My favorite Christmas cookie is my family's Italian Lemon Drops. LOVE these, as does my daughter!.
    This bag is really cute, by the way.
    Thanks.

  50. Roseanne above is right; it's very cute. I still have to make my mother's Russian teacakes. Merry Christmas!

  51. Hello Rose, I love reading your blog...and am (always) inspired by your beautiful work, details & how FAST you crank projects out ~ this is a clever & sweet little string bag too! I'd have to say growing up with one of the best Sicilian cooks & bakers (my mom), my all time favorite cookies were her Snowballs made with fresh squeezed orange juice & fresh orange zest and walnuts of course! But for our Christmas Eve tradition... it was my grandmother's Sicilian Cuccidati cookies, also known as Sicilian Fig Cookies... a butter cookie with a filling mixture of dried figs, dried dates, raisins, candied citron, walnuts and spices -- rolled up like rolling your tongue, baked lightly brown & dusted with powdered sugar...Ooooh YUM, I need to get these made! Merry Christmas to you & yours Rose...and wishes for a *Joy-Filled & Peaceful* New Year! ~Diane

  58. Favorite cookie? Mom's famous painted frosted sugar cookie. Each year we would each receive three beautifully painted (using food coloring) cookies, uniquely ours. I wish now I had saved them, but they were so good. Merry Christmas. <3
