It promises to be another beautiful Fall day here in the Ozarks.  Hubby and I took the weekend off to slow down a bit and give him time to recover from a bad outbreak of poison ivy. 

I have been busy in the sewing room working on Christmas gifts and items I need to turn in to Reggie, my quilter, before the end of October.  After that date she won't accept anything else until January. I'm thinking of making a few table runners and embellished Christmas stockings.  I already finished a quilt for our neighbors and I'm working on another one for a special friend.

Meals have been real simple around here lately.  I made a large pot of chili last week and we enjoyed it as bowls of chili with toppings, chili dogs and finally as chili mac.  Today I will be making a batch of stuffed peppers (red) that will give us two meals plus a meal for the freezer for later.  In the Fall and Winter we enjoy homemade soups and stews with homemade bread and rolls. 

Life is especially good right now.  I wish the same for you and yours.

Fall is slowly edging out our summer days.  The trees know it's time to begin turning colors and the hummingbirds have all but moved out.  Last week they were eating two quarts a day and now we seldom see one at the feeder.

It will soon be time to change out the summer quilt for a warmer Fall one and before much longer socks, sweatshirts  and flannel shirts and pajamas will become my uniform ~~~ I can't wait!

Our food in the Fall is a little heavier.  Homemade soup, stew and chili, huge pots of beans cooked with ham will be on our table almost every night along with skillet cornbread and homemade rolls. 

In the sewing room my thoughts have been on Fall.  I'm working on a small Halloween quilt that can be thrown over the back of the sofa or on a kitchen chair.   I love the colors of Halloween. What are you making for Fall this year? 

I love reading your comments.

Happy Fall Y'All!!
