Hanging things up...
I've had making covered hangers on my list of "to make" for a long time. In my sorting and organizing frenzy, I found a bunch of strips I'd pieced together for a purpose that now escapes me. Three infant-size plastic hangers discovered in the closet... and thus began the hanger project.
After quilting the pieced strips to a scrap piece of batting (just the top and the batting, only two layers), I traced the plastic hanger shape onto the quilted piece, cut it out, added a pleated strip to the bottom, sewed it up, and Voila!
Digging more scraps from the pile, I quilted and sewed another version. Now, are they worth the time involved? Only if you enjoy the process! But I enjoyed using up some scraps and plan to make a few more.This is really the perfect time of year for sewing. It has been rainy and chilly for the last few days, and staying in becomes a bit of a treat.
I have beans soaking for bean soup right now. This weather makes me crave the comfort of soups, which I love anyway.
Connie posted this recipe for a hashbrown casserole (how could this recipe have eluded me? it looks scrumptious) that seems like a great fall dish. Of course, I can't serve it to Fee who is having to watch his cholesterol, but it would make a great casserole for a fall get-together.
What recipes are fall-comfort-food for you?
