Easter candy – it is more dangerous than Christmas or Halloween candy because it comes in chocolate and pretty colors. I thought nothing could tempt me more until I read about Ariel Segall. When she was at MIT she founded the Laboratory for Chocolate Science, a student club. When she graduated, she started a part-time chocolate business, Dark Matter Chocolate Laboratory. She makes chocolate Daleks, people. Then I remembered The Chocolate Vault, which doesn’t make chocolate Dahleks, but you can get a chocolate submarine on a stick.

I’m not a candy maker, but I do collect candy fabric. This stack is waiting for piecing inspiration.

In the meantime, I made a small landscape quilt inspired by a pendant.

I have several other large beads, pendants and assorted embellishments that might be useful for landscapes, so this may be a new series for me (to add to all the others I hope to finish in my copious free time).

Luck and wisdom!

      Oh, mercy! I just looked at the website. If I’m ever in the UK, this place is definitely on the list to see.

    I am so glad I gave up eating chocolate! 🙂
    The landscape is beautiful; I love how you’ve carried the colours from the pendant out into the piece.
