And just like that, winter arrived. I don't remember the last time we got snow before Christmas, but at least its one wish we can now cross off the list.
Booted, gloved, layered, frosted, hot cocoa-ed, Chexmixed, loud kids were not part of yesterday's studio plan. It is now part of today's plan. Yet the word plan for what the day will likely become, is silly. This one always finds her chair though, right under my nose as I work. This studio, with the garage underneath, gets quite cold (9 degrees outside, last check!). Being in the business of fabric and quilts comes pretty lucky. She's nestled under her new favorite, which is another version of the Love Emblem.
A quick word to say thanks to my friends at Delish Magazine for sharing our little Q&A in their lovely Winter edition online mag. I really enjoyed our chat, which likely means the feature may document me rambling, but if you're putting off anything, this should help you do that for about 10 minutes.
Okay, I might pretend like I'm a good mom for a bit and make a batch of loukoumades to rise while the kids are still konked out on the playroom floor.
Stay warm, xo, Anna

I read your interview in the new Delish issue - what a wonderful article! You are always such an inspiring woman! This Love Emblem quilt looks like such a great project to work on during snowy day, especially with that hot cocoa you mentioned. Stay warm and have fun!ReplyDelete
That recipe looks divine! I am surely putting it on the list for holiday delicious-ness.ReplyDelete
Look at you, sneaky little thing - slipping in your new fabric line in an interview!! SO SO excited to see it. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. :)ReplyDelete
I always love checking out your blog! Your fabrics are gorgeous, the photography and writing inspiring and your family just adorable, thanks so much for just doing what you do...you amaze!ReplyDelete
That picture says it all. Enjoy the day and all it brings you. It's a memory making day. Stay warm!ReplyDelete
You just raised my heart rate!ReplyDelete
We went to our first Greek Festival this summer... it was fun, especially when our daughter was eager and brave enough to join a dance lesson in front of the masses. But the other good memory has tortured me a bit: We ate a delicate honeyed pastry, and I have been dreaming of it ever since!
I suppose I could have scoured the Internet for it, but I just love that I have discovered it from you! Now, if we could only get it to snow here too, then we'd have double Christmas magic!
Thank you Anna Maria, for a year of colorful inspiration and this honey-sweet wish come true!
LOVED your interview in Delish!! Have fun with the kids today if anything you'll have some funny memories to hold onto!!ReplyDelete
My kids keep asking who keeps getting our snow (we live in CT). We have gotten nothing and normally it would be 10 inches by now. Now I know what to tell them :)ReplyDelete
Lucky little kiddo!! I'd love to be curled up under a beautiful quilt on a snow day.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, just tantalize us casually in your interview. You know we love it. Looking forward to hearing more about the new collection!ReplyDelete
P.S. ramblings are always a pleasure.
I love your blog all very beautiful,congratulations...ReplyDelete
Great read -thanks for the link to the hip new magazine (e-zine!). Your article was wonderful, congratulations :o)ReplyDelete
It was a rare pleasure to get to speak to you!
I am pretty spoiled -- being a journalist affords me the access to people whose work and values I admire. I found your words about parenting resonated with me, and as a new mom I enjoyed the perspective of a mom wit lots of kids! This, of course, was in addition to the chat about your creative inspiration and business acumen...
Thank you for the opportunity, and keep on doing what you do so well!! We at Delish love you.
Second snow day for us! We made Toffee and played with Legos all day! I really enjoy snow days!ReplyDelete
The Delish piece looks great! I was sure jealous of Tamara for doing the interview, I wanted to do it.ReplyDelete

I just love the colours of the fabrics on this quilt. I want!ReplyDelete
I just want to thank you for being so forthright about the ways your kids & personal life impact / distract from your work plans sometimes. Even though I'm not a mom, hearing that others are derailed when working from home is very reassuring.ReplyDelete
Cool article! And love seeing your lil' darlin' snuggled up in that gorgeous quilt. This time of year, you can often find all of us swaddled up in something or other, as our den is a chilly room.ReplyDelete
The colors in that photo just made me smile. Here is to colorful quilts on VERY cold days, and to the changing of plans that happens when anyone has kids....ReplyDelete
Just wanted to drop in and say that I just ran out of some very cute recipe cards that I'd found at Meijer maybe a year or so ago? Wanting to get more, I turned them over to see if there was a company name on them so I could order more... There your name was! Funny to think that I've been reading your blog and using these awesome recipe cards and never knew the connection. :)ReplyDelete
that quilt is breathtaking!ReplyDelete
The loukomades look delish! I'm half Greek, but I don't have any Greek relatives around to have taught me how to cook all the delicious foods. I think I need to just teach myself.ReplyDelete
(I spoke briefly to your mom at Quilt Market--I noticed that she has a long Greek name like I do.)
I guess everybody but southern New England has gotten snow! I'm still waiting...ReplyDelete
Such a snuggly & sweet post! Gorgeous quilt, so vibrant :) Happy Holidays!ReplyDelete
what an adorable photo!ReplyDelete
have a lovely christmas :)
