Hungry as a Bear

The change in the weather as fall approaches has aroused my culinary instincts. I've been making soups and baking bread and apple crisp. I dressed for the task a bit more casually then this chef, resplendent in his seersucker appliqued outfit and billowing embroidered apron and toque. His image livens up two corners of a vintage tablecloth I have, while his first cousin is on the opposing corners:

Why all the cooking and baking? Because this time of year, everyone is hungry as a bear:

This cheerful ursine, who walks softly and carries a really big spoon, is embroidered on an unfinished quilt block found at the flea market.
