Ice Cream Sundae Finish!



First, of all let me thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post. Thanks too for the suggestions regarding my furbabies! I did end up getting a runner to go across it and have tried using the water bottle sprayer in order to keep them off it. They actually haven't been too bad and if they even see me with sprayer in hand, they get the heck out of Dodge! LOL

This is Ice Cream Sundae by CCN. I finished it today. I decided not to do the border, as I tend not to like them. So, the ladies in my local stitching group suggested I do something different and this was it. The swirl part at the top is supposed to be in white, but I changed it to the fudge ripple-which is like a chocolate color. I did consider doing the whole border in that color, but for now it will stay like this. Since, I put this on a pink fabric, I notice that the white seems washed out too. But, irl it doesn't look like that. Sorry, the picture is a tad crooked no matter how I tried to straighten it out.

I can't believe another week has gone by. It's officially Autumn now, though you wouldn't know that in Florida. I was a little better about posting an update. But, some of my time is now consumed with kids and homework. So, I guess once a week is not to bad. Anyway, I must run. You all take care and have a great week!

I think that the borders can oftentimes be left off. And they are such a bore to stitch!! LOL! This turned out so cute - can't wait to see how your finish/frame it!

Trouble with finishes like this-you get hungry when you read and see them!
There is also French Vanilla, which is a nice 712 color. It looks 'yummy' though!

I love the ice cream sampler. I bet that pink fabric is just gorgeous in real life! The piece looks just fine without the border.

Redwitch said...

Mmmm mmmm...lovely sampler. Borders can be dull, this looks fab without :)

Annemarie said...

I totally get your dislike of stitching borders. I'm the same. Your solution is a very elegant one. The sampler looks gorgeous! Good luck with all the busy-ness!

Yet another wonderful finish ... can you send some of that great stitching mojo over here? LOL. Great to hear the water bottle trick is working :)

Michelle said...

It's gorgeous! I love it with the changes you've made too. I bought this chart when it first came out, but haven't gotten around to stitching it yet. Glad the furbabies are behaving now!

Stephanie said...

What a sweet finish Sharon - I think I'm a mint chip fan myself :)

Lili said...

Well, I especially love Salm sisters (never saw it before, but you have a gift to make me discover new things...).
The Ice cream sundae is making me put on weight just watching it... I mean, now I'll only think of having one of those with toffee and peanuts on it... Lol!
Take care!
