A Digression :: Maple Pepper Pecans

Gifts for Neighbors

Are you enjoying the holidays?  I love Christmas and have music playing whenever possible.  I have been busy as a bee this past week.  Thankfully, the shopping is done, cards are sent, and these lovely little packages are ready to gift to the neighbors.  I thought I'd also post the recipe here if you'd like to try making these sweet and spicy pecans (see below).  Beware, they are addictive!  They are perfect for a salad with fruit, cheese and mild greens.  They are also great cocktail party nibbles.  Enjoy!

Also, you can see my newest tablerunner on the table. While there's so much I can't show on the blog right now, I'm happy to share this little project that I made a few days ago.  I needed a new Christmas tablerunner and found a little Moda charm pack called 25th and Pine in the stash.  I backed it with a bright red reindeer print, so it's double sided.  Fun!

I haven't forgotten my promise to show photos of my quilts that didn't make it into QuiltCon.  In the meantime, go and read what some other bloggers are saying.  I'll be back with that soon.
