Summer of Colour - Week 6 - The Finale




Oh my. Six weeks has certainly past my by in a whirl, but I will always have my six little ice cream cones to remind me of them! The final cone this week was Watermelon Ice, and I had so much fun creating this final ice. He has pips galore and juicy watermelon pink all over. Perhaps last weeks cone was so sad because it knew it would end up next door to him!


 And here are all six of my creations together. I am so pleased with the way they have turned out though I am still a little unhappy with Mr. Wild Sherbet, when I see them all together like this I love the way they all show little personality's and quirks.
 I can also finally reveal that my project was stitched onto 2 plain pillowcases. Many people guessed they were towels or a tablecloth. My next big project is to hunt down a plain duvet cover and stitch another addition to the collection on a much much larger scale and create a bespoke bed set.

 I have really enjoyed visiting everyone during these last 6 weeks and I know I have ended up following several of you and I have seen my follows increase to. I hope you will all continue to pop and see me from time to time and let me know what you've been up to.

  3. Another lovely little embroidery - he's so sweet in the watermelon colours and I like the way you added green for the watermelon skin - it gives him pazazz! Lovely idea with the pillow cases - it's going to look great along with the matching duvet cover - fab idea!

  6. I think this is the most impressive cone with the details you added. It must have taken forever to get the watermelon seeds. This is impressive. I'm so glad I got to see them all. This has really, really been a fun journey following your ice cream cones!

  10. Your final ice cream is such an extrovert with all those pips - no wonder poor Wild Sherbet isn't too happy!

    All of your ice creams have lovely little characters, well done :o)
