Yesterday I was back in the studio sewing.  Finished quilting tops for two body pillow covers.  One for the Sleep Til Noon quilt, and a blue green panel I'd started--that I dug out of the UFO/Stash Tub.

I didn't waste the new needle on the long arm machine, so I quickly quilted two Christmas fabric panels (tablerunners).

While the weather was still calm I jumped in the car and drove to Stevens Point to the Wal--and bought their very last body pillow, so I could stuff the blue green cover I'd just quilted.  Naughty me, I bought two bags of Herschey's Kisses (mint, and plain) because I'll be baking cupcakes and cookies--treats on Friday for our Christmas Craft Show.  Before the evening was done, we'd opened both bags of kisses--just to taste test.  Ha. Ha.

I still need a good recipe for warm spiced apple cider.  Can any one tell me a delicious and simple one to make?  

Thank you for looking at my stuff.

Wow very nice ,Mrs. D, I'm glad there is fabric and thread enough for you to continue to vent your energy and creativity.  Should you ever stop, you would quickly reach critical mass...  the mushroom cloud would be seen on my side of Wisconsin.  Btw, if I were around there, the Hershey kisses would never survive to adorn  cookies.

This is a nice simple mulled cider recipe, I have used it often with or without sloe gin. I usually add star anise though, looks pretty and it gives a lovely aroma, along with the cloves.

My late mother-in-law used to make a large coffee server of apple cider mixed with a container of Cranapple juice and a stick or two of cinnamon and a handful of red hots (decorator candies).  The blend of these ingredients was delicious!  Those were in the days of the Main St. businesses taking turns hosting Christmas open house, and customers and the neighboring business people came and enjoyed handmade goodies and fellowship.
