It's been trying Martha's Valentine day heart cookie for two year, I really love her recipe. It came out perfectly every time. I know Martha always says "IT'S GOOD THINGS!" Thats fucking truth! She is queen of under cooking and everything. This cookie recipe is from the Martha's "Good Things" (you can see the pic on the top) check out at amazon. It is such great book to have everybody's home. It has lot of info about the basic kinchen and living houehold ideas and project. You can see the book pic of cookie on top, its lovely and decorated with royal icing and colored suger.
It is really simple and easy suger cookies recipe. HERE is how to make a heart cookie!
Heart Suger Cookies

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 pound (2 stick) unsalted butter

2. Use an electric mixer or by hands to cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs.

Pattern: "Weaved Blue River" Scarf (My Own)
Pattern Notes: Just simple scarf with made my own. I cast on 23 chain, make two chain then double stitch one row and next two row single stitch. Repeat does stitch ontil length of the scarf I what. Then I added classic scarf fringe. Just great mindless project.. I named this "Weaved Blue River" scarf because it looks like a ciassic vintage weaved scarf..remind me ofcold night blue rive.
Me and my scarf! Scarf looking great!
