County Fair Blog Hop

Wow - good thing I checked my blog! I thought I had this scheduled for 8am this morning....oops, it's like the alarm that didn't go off!

It's my turn on the Moda blog hop! After 23 hops, you've finally landed here! Hopefully I will be able to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about me...but didn't want to ask! I've had fun reading all the designer's blogs this month...now here are my answers to the Moda questions, whether you want to know them or not.....

What's your favorite fair food?

Any day at the fair is a good day - because of the food! After walking around the livestock, craft and artisan areas, I wander over to the food area. Since I only find myself at a County Fair once in a blue moon - I go for a bit of everything. My new favorite fair food is the chocolate bacon - a bit of salty and sweet all at the same time - sometimes it's even frozen...why not?! I also love the deep fried cheese curd - a specialty at the Wisconsin fairs. Oh, and the cotton candy - who can resist the cotton candy! There is no such thing as moderation at the fair - is there?

State Fairs have become known for what they can FRY? What do you fry?

I fry french fries and serve them with mussels cooked in a white wine and garlic sauce - known in France as Moules-Frites.  One of my favorite Moules-Frites recipes is here.
My favorite place in the world for french fries is at L'Entrecote in Toulouse (they also have spots in Paris and Bordeaux).  The best part of L'Entrecote, besides the fact that you don't have to order off of the menu - everyone gets the same meal....entrecote, french fries and salad -  is the fact that they keep returning to fill your plate when it is empty.  And the sauce, the secret sauce they pour over their meat - no one can figure out what it is - even though many of us have tried...and you know who you are.

What's your guilty pleasure?

Big surprise here.....more food!  My guilty pleasure is(are) Jelly Bellys - I can sit for hours thinking up new flavor combinations - and then being the official taster, this usually results in me feeling sick and swearing off of them for a year!  I also love a good bottle of French wine - but I do not love these two culinary treats together - definitely not!

Enough about food.....

What's on your bucket list?

I would like to take a textile tour of of India - the tour would include nothing but sitting around and watching fabric be blockprinted, woven or dyed all day, everyday.  In the evenings, I would stay at an Indian palace and learn how to cook Indian food.  I would watch a lot of Indian movies and wear a sari.  I like the idea of living in a different culture for a while - learning to live in another world.  JZ doesn't think I will ever be able to do this since I can hardly wait 30 minutes for a bus.  But I have faith.


What inspires your work?

My work is inspired by an old house in the middle of the South of France surrounded by lavender fields. And stripes - I love stripes.  Every time I see someone dressed in stripes I feel good - there is something fresh, simple and clean about stripes...they are timeless.

Coco in Stripes

What movie do you watch again & again?

Coco Before Chanel
and
The Great Gatsby
and
Jules et Jim
and
Bright Star

What's on your night stand?
(I really wish I had a picture of this - but my computer is on edge and I can't download anymore pics!)
Lavender sachet, stack of Cote Sud magazines, pictures of Sofia, and an old wooden jewelry box - filled with all sorts of old beads, rosaries and other charms I have collected.  I also have a book or three - one that I am reading, one that my mom gave me and one for inspiration.....The Root of Wild Madder by Brian Murphy, Tattoos on The Heart by Father Gregory Boyle, and Summers in France by Kathryn Ireland (thanks Mogull!)

Tell us about your pets...


This is Sofia and her pet chinchilla - Aladdin.  Actually he doesn't live with us, we just sponsor him so he can live in a natural habitat at the Moorpark Training Zoo.  We are allowed to visit him once a month - which we have done once - he's cute and very soft.

This is me at an angora goat farm we found in the South of France this past summer.  This isn't really my pet - but I loved this little baby kid and would have loved to have taken him home with me!  He fell asleep in my arms - and I fell in love.

In real life, we have two cats, Johnny and Boots - both found us - while looking for food and love. Johnny is the tough boy and Boots is the show cat - well, at least that's what we tell them.  This is a picture of Johnny sleeping - something he does very well.

What creative plans are in your future?


Besides Rouenneries Deux being released in the Spring 2012, which is very exciting, I am working on a paper arts line for EK Success which will also be available in the Spring and a home decorating fabric, trim and wallpaper line which will be available in the Spring of 2013.

Best of Show!
Ok - enough about me! How about a fun County Fair project designed with our new collection, Rouenneries Deux! This simple project can be made out of all the scraps you never want to throw away. Use these pins to commemorate special events or tie onto packages for the holiday season.

Download Ribbon Pattern Here

Now...for the really fun part! (And we're almost done here!)  I have a handful of precuts to giveaway to a few lucky winners - all you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what your guilty pleasure is! As long as you know all of mine...I may as well know some of yours! Thanks for playing along and be sure to visit Lisa from Primitive Gatherings tomorrow!

Au Revoir!

Amanda said...

I've been looking for your post most of the afternoon. I'm glad you checked! I love beautiful embossed notecards (although I rarely write in and mail them.)If that doesn't count, then it's M&M's or Milky Way candy bars.
Your fabrics are so appealing to me (it must be that I have a small percentage of French heritage).

SAnderson said...

I know this may sound like a cliche, but I would have to say my guilty pleasure is chocolate. I love chocolate milk in the morning with breakfast since I was a child. I will buy chocolate at the grocery store and hide it so my husband and kids don't eat it all on me. My cakes are always chocolate with chocolate icing, unless someone in my family requests that I make something differant! My husband tells me I am addicted to chocolate, espeacially dark chocolate!
Love your fabrics, fell in love with your designs when I saw an article about you in Home Companion years ago. Thanks for the chance to win.

Michelle Jensen said...

Lovely. That is so pretty. I think that I want to live in that picture of the lavendar fields. How awesome are those. I think that one of the reasons that I love quilting is that it is so romantic making things to enjoy. Thanks for the giveaway. I am looking forward to the release of your new line because it looks beautiful. Thanks again. Michelleleejensen@live.com

Linda said...

Loved your post, what fun. I guess my guilty pleasure would have to be fabric first and M&M's second, or maybe they are a tie for first, not sure. Love the fabric. Thanks for a chance to win.

LesQuilts said...

Hi Kaari!
My guilty pleasure is sitting on Sat and Sunday mornings, with my special cup, drinking coffee, cruising blogs, maybe a little hand stitching in front of me while waiting for pages to load, or maybe a new quilting magazine! The time is my own. I don't have to be anywhere, do anything, have anyone asking for a bit of me...
Peace.
Thanks for the post, the giveaway and the project! Just right for my last gift for a swap!
Take care, Leslie

My guilty pleasure used to be chocolate but I was recently diagnosed with a milk allergy, so I need a new guilty pleasure! Right now it just may be buying yet another book.

My husband and I own a farm, so we work together and there is always something to do. My guilty pleasure is, when he drives out the driveway I run into my sewing room and sew for awhile, when I should be working. Stealing moments of bliss when I shouldn't.

The house pictured in your post looks just like one that I stayed in the south of France.

1) Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

2) Watching "A Room With A View." I was 18 in 1985, thought it was the most romantic movie ever, and wished I could be Lucy Honeychurch kissing George Emerson in the barley field. Now I watch, 44, wistfully remembering those youthful days.

PS - Rouenneries Deux rocks! :)

Yvonne said...

I have two. The first is chocolate. Chocolate ice cream, candy bars, brownies, cookies, milk shakes, as long as it's chocolate. The other is reading about other people's projects on their blogs. Seriously! If I spent half as much time working on my own projects instead of reading about other people's projects, I'd get so much done! But, I love to see the creative things that other people are doing. It does inspire me.

My guilty pleasures include good dark chocolate, cheese, a glass of French Red and some almonds...oooh-la-la!
For an early 50th birthday gift(oct.3,just a few more days), my sister took me to the South of France, which has been a dream of mine since chilhood. We had such a wonderful time. Part of me is still there. I love the people, the food, the wine(we visited many vineyards)and the markets. I love how the simple things in life are respected and enjoyed there.
I understand why a house in the middle of a lavender field would inspire you...beautiful!
I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE your fabrics. Thank you for the great tutorial and a chance to win some of your beautiful fabric :0)
