Most Things Fall

Happy Friday sweet friends!  I know you are all blogging about Fall, so I thought I should chime in.  I will start with a recipe.  More to the tune of, I will send you to the site that shares the recipe, and then just tell you to try this, it is wonderful!  I made this for hubs and myself a little over a week ago when the nights started cooling off and I decided it was time to start making some of the yummy, warm your soul, foods that we all love come Fall.
This is Touchdown Chili is out of the Susan Branch Autumn book.  You can find the recipe here on her wonderful site.  Not only are you in for a treat if you try out this recipe but you also are going to love reading the wonderful posts that Susan writes.  Better yet, you might want to pick up a copy of the book because it is full of great recipes for this time of the year.

Now that the season has changed and it is almost time to start working on those Christmas gifts, I have been trying to spend more time in my sewing room finishing off some of the projects that have been sitting while I have been gardening, canning and just having summer fun.  Today is
and I have been in the sewing room finishing up a couple of projects this evening.  I finished the August BOM and replaced May's block since I did not get June or July's made yet.  This is diffidently more seasonal.

I also finished up another project this evening but am unable to share it with you because I am taking part in a blog hop at Jane's Fabrics and Quilts.  Each Monday someone shares an embroidery project.  My turn to share  is September 30th.

For the Love of Hnad Embroidery

Since I cannot share the completed project I will just give you a peek of the material that I used to put it all together with.  I have been determined to find a project to use some of this Moda fabric in so I hope you will come back on the 30th and see the result.

I am going to work on another project through through the rest of the evening.  I shared the pieced side of the chenille baby blanket I am making for a gift a couple of weeks ago.
This evening I am backing with layers of flannel in these colors sewing the channels through all the layers that I hope to get cut and the binding on and in the washer to turn into chenille by the end of the weekend.  A soft warm blanket for a new Fall baby due next month.  

I will try and come back later tomorrow and share the fun things I have planned with my best friend tomorrow if there is time.  Have a wonderful weekend!  Blessings from our home in the woods.

Linking up with some of my favorite friends:

once again I am so impressed with your sewing skills. You are so creative! I now have an 8x8 booth in the Knitting Mill Antique Mall, Jessica and I have worked on painting and the displays, we finished putting it together on Wednesday. I am going to go and check on it tomorrow. I hope we sell stuff! School is going well, my kids are soooo young and need lots of one-on-one attention. Have a wonderful weekend and I used your salsa recipes and made 2 batches, 5 qts the first night, 10 pints the 2nd. Also made, for the first time, watermelon rind pickles.
