Lots of candy and a little fabric

I've signed up for the Friday Night Sew-In tomorrow over at Sugar Lane Designs.

I really need to get going on my Schnibbles project for this month!


Mercerie is calling my name!

I've got nothing done so far, except my fabrics are picked out and I've gotten some helpful tips from my friend JoAnne.


  Since the Friday Night Sew In is temporarily based out of Australia, I guess I can do my sewing Friday morning and consider myself a part of the group!

For me, that works even better than Friday night!

While I haven't been doing much quilting, commenting, or replying to emails...........Sorry about that!  We've had a busy week!.........I have been trying some of the new fall treats that are out in the stores.  It all started with the Candy Corn Oreos and now we are moving in a different direction!

Have you seen the S'more Candy Corn?

I would have taken a picture of the bag, but I don't want you to see how many we've already eaten!

Maybe I'll get a new bag for another post.  You know, for photography purposes!

The S'more Candy Corns are the white, yellow and graham cracker colored ones in the spider bowl above.  Now that I look at it, there aren't many in the bowl either!

Well anyway, we think they're pretty good.  They have a nice s'more flavor to them.  Lots of marshmallow and graham cracker.

A nice taste for fall!

Then we tried something else.............

Pumpkin Spice M&M's?


We just had to give these a try!

They sound really weird, but we liked them.  They are really just chocolate with a hint of spice at the end.   

Not a whole lot different than plain chocolate, but actually pretty good!

My family gave them the thumbs up, but not with lots of enthusiasm.

They're interesting and the bag isn't too big, so if you decide to give them a try you don't have a lot to lose.

Well, I've got some catching up to do tonight and I might even sneak a few more s'more candy corns if I can find any, so I need to get going!

Happy fall!

That is a cute candy dish! Hmmm - I think I'll take my plain M&Ms thank you.

I've looked for the candy corn Oreos but haven't found them yet. Have you seen the candy corn M&Ms? I saw them a little while ago. I hope my advice helps you on Mercerie. I can't wait to see your version.

Your posts are making me hungry. Every time I'm at the store I look for the candy corn oreos, so far, no luck, but I've seen about every other kind of oreo!

Smore candy corn??!! It's the best of all worlds!

Carol said...

YUM! Just gotta love all the fall goodies...

As I sit here munching my own candy corn I think I also need a bag of those M&M's. You're dangerous, Michele! Pretty fabric line - can't wait to see what you do with it!
