Are you getting in the mood?

One of my favorite parts of this time of year? Valentine's Candy.
Especially Sweets Cherry JuJu Hearts.
I have this little jar by my sewing machine for when the craving hits.
I'm waiting to see how long before my kids figure out the latch. :)
A few more things to get you in the Valentine's Day mood:
(only a couple of weeks away after all)
Some recent Lecien purchases from Fat Quarter Shop.
(I'm trying to put together more I-spy collections, pronto.)
This little pile from AQ.
The cherries and dots are Mini Muu and cute plaid is by Marcus Brothers
And this little vintage inspired beauty is now in the shop!
This quilt is made of over 75 different fabrics to make it scrappy
and with lots of reproduction prints and chenille to give it a vintage feel.

The back is an old-fashioned toile with children.

There are also kits to make your own.
But there are only 3 and that's it.

I'm almost done getting ready for my
De-stash Etsy tag sale this weekend.
Watch for listings starting Saturday!

Have fun 'getting' in the mood at your house!


  1. Those juju hearts would last about 10 seconds at my house.
    Thanks for showing some of the new Valentine lines.

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm completely in love with those cherries and dots and that plaid! Just vowed no more fabric till I finish my WIPs and now this. Ugh.

  3. Love all of the "EYE" candy!....Especially all of the red!....I didn't know that they made Cherry JuJU Hearts! Where did you get them?

  4. this is adorable...i love the fabrics and the use of the chenille in that quilt

  5. Was that outside on the deck with snow that you hung and photographed your very dear quilt? No wonder you need to eat little red hearts to keep you warm. I am going to resist your I spy collections for the time being...but I will back when I have finished a few more things.

  6. I love your pink vintage quilt! I know anyone can make the squares any size, but could I ask what size these are? Thanks!

  7. I agree with Peanut Blossom. No more fabric...and now this! I have some red chenille. I'm going through my stash. Too cute!

  8. Such pretty colours! Love all the fabrics in your first two fabric pictures especially.

  9. With the dreary weather, those happy reds made me smile!

  10. Vintage quilt is so adorable Amy! Love the toile back

  11. Mmmmm....Ju Ju Hearts, one of my all time favorites.

  12. Love those Lecien prints...don't think I've every had the candy in the jar...will have to look for that!

  13. Forgot to add, adore the photo of the jar and gummy hearts!

  14. so cute! I loved the blue and pink one you had in your shop too - unfortunately, I didn't snap it up!
