It started innocently enough

never too early

This isn't what it looks like. I was only conducting field research whilst naming the new fabric stack combinations for the shop. I did find myself dreaming about all varieties of treats that were impossible to chew (until today). Its not like I went straight from dental work to chewy stick to your fillings candy. There were like 3 days in between.

sweet inspiration

And during those days, as evidenced above, I indulged rather tamely, thank you. It was quite fun and I have absolutely no business having any fun! There is work to be done. Which promptly makes anything more fun. I told myself it would just be a wee small bit of quilting, just for kicks. Then no one was safe from the sweet seduction of fabric triangles.

Even Isabela could not keep her hands out of all the goodness and spent a long while in front of the new design wall devouring one triangle after another in search of the perfect configuration.

And I have no idea who's composing that large-scale thing to her right. I certainly don't have the time for that.

(more candy corn fun here, 'member, from last year?)

  1. Your fabrics are just so yummy. We always equate fabric with food, not sure why... You are interperating it gorgeously! Thanks, keep inspiring us!!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog and I am entranced...and now, wanting candy corn...I wonder why that could be. I love your color use and your creativity. I am hooked! Plus I have a bad fabric and quilting obsession I must feed.

  8. Hi Anna Maria,
    My daughter Emily moved into her own apartment about two weeks ago and knew right away she wanted to decorate with the Garden Party fabrics. We got three yards of Polka line last week and unholstered her dining room chairs. She's expecting 3 yards of Guest Of Honor this week to make pillows with for her sofa. They'll have the Polka Line on the back and ball fringe trim. It's been so much fun playing with the fabrics and figuring out cute combinations. I'm going to make her a table runner with the scraps and will send you pictures of all when it's done. Oh yes, she has the pink kitchen towels, too and they look so cute in her tiny little 20's era kitchen.

  9. Gotta love "fall candy". I just discovered a new one. At Target this weekend they were passing out "Pumpkin Kisses", yep pumpkin flavored Hershey's kisses. And NO they are not as good as chocolate, but they are good! And, my kids won't eat 'em! ;)

    I like the triangle layout alot!! And of course you have time!! :)

    My younger daughter has caught the sewing bug too! Some kids just have it in their blood.
    And that fabulous thing to the right of her.....a fall breeze must have swept thru the studio and blown those lovely fabrics up on to the wall. How lucky for you!
    Your fabrics are amazing! I having a great time with them in my house and on my bags! Thanks for providing us with such a wonderful medium!

  15. I so get you right now! The desire to avoid work and sew instead: check! The candy addiction: check! (except mine is m&ms and kettle corn)

    And I was thinking of your silly candy corn on the shoulder bit just the other day. Oddly enough. Too funny!

    And I'm loving the quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can't wait to see what the two of you create! Does she sew also?

  17. I have started nibbling on candy corn recently too! I love the candy corn triangles you put together. What a great way to represent the season. Sure made me smile! I love what's happening on your design wall. How nice to have a creative "partner" like that!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I too want to kow if that is FLOR and if you like it? I'm trying to convince Hubby that is what we should get for the basement.

  19. what fun you're having with your sweet chickadee girlie. Love the combos you are showing us. SO FALLISH! You make me go grrrr, though...i am just finishing up a quilt with your fabrics and now i see this combo and have to have it. so, we'll see.....sweet fabric addictions to feed, here. better than the "candy corns". Bet you're glad to have your oral surgery behind you....*ugh*...never fun.
    lovingly,

  22. I love both of the triangle configurations you have up there on the wall! The colors are absolutely yummy!

  23. I am a candy corn whore. I have even tried making candy corn ice cream, because I love it that much, and feel that it should have a flavor of ice cream. But if you think candy corn is hard by itself, try freezing it. Serious teeth damage.

    Now please tell me that you have a good ten hours more in your day than the average person. I am feeling seriously creatively inadequate.

  24. That wall is like a dream come true to a quilter! I love what you are doing there and Bela is definitely her Mommy's girl! You and my son-- candy corn nuts! I just opened an amazon bookshop and put your new one on there!! I can't wait until it comes out! (shortly!)

  25. Oh, now I have a huge craving for candy corn, and a trip to a fabric store! What a fun inspiration.

  35. It was a rainy, windy day, the kind of day where the only safe place is wrapped in a snuggly quilt - and on a day like that you just need some COLOUR and inspiration to make you smile. So where did I look? Your blog. It's my happy place in the rain. :-)
    I have given you the "I Love Your Blog' award - please see my blog for details. Thanks for such a FUN and inspiring blog!!

  36. oh Anna, what luscious fabric and now I am drooling for come candy corn. I am a huge fan and need to find some quick. :) Have a beautiful day. Isn't it lovely here in Tennessee?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hmm. Looking at your carpet squares, I'm wondering if we should get something like that for our garage that we're using as a gym. I'm sensitive to chemicals though. I wonder how they hold up. If you could say where you got them, that would be so nice. Thanks!

    (Also, I finally got my new apron and fabric scraps and the apron is gorgeous-- although, sort of suggests to me that I should have bigger boobs ;-)-- and I'm going to post a photo of me in it soon.)

  38. I love your blog. Your photos are amazing, and the fabric wonderful. I am a fabric collector of sorts. I seem to buy it then fold and refold it. I love to look at it. I love your design wall what a great idea a place to sort the pieces!

  39. I am sooooo jealous of that wall. Both projects up on it are fabulous. What a great think for a young creative mind to have access to!
