Ice Cream, You Scream, We all scream for ice cream




Yes, ice cream! Ranks right up there with popcorn as my favorite snack food. I mainly eat it in the summer thou, as I don't like to eat cold ice cream when I am cold anyway!
A couple of weeks ago, we went to the pottery painting place in town. They had free studio fees if you painted the ice cream bowls. Well, I had seen this last summer & missed out on the deal. So....as soon as I knew about them this year, we went out to do ours. The bowls are already 'ready' to be painted. You are allowed to chose how you want to do your bowl. We all did ours, then left them to be fired. We picked them up this past weekend. We think they turned out great, for our first time trying this! We haven't used them yet, but I am sure we will soon!!!
Next ice cream, is a stitched card. This little kit was a freebie included with a magazine that Mylene sent me a while back. I knew I wanted to stitch it, but just hadn't yet. When I put B. Potter away the other day, I decided it was time! I finished the backstitching tonight, & made the card. I thought it turned out pretty cute!
Lastly, we got the wedding piece totally ready tonight. My husband made the frame & tonight we did the lacing & framing. I will give it to the groom's mom tomorrow when I see her & she will deliver it to the wedding next week.
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
