“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” My dad loved ice cream, all flavors and styles, and ate a bowl every night before bed. I inherited his love of ice cream, and never met a flavor or style I didn’t love, but hot fudge sundaes are by far my favorite!
Any time of the year is a great time for ice cream; I remember going to get ice cream cones during a snow storm once! But especially in the hot summer months, ice cream seems even more refreshing. We’ll enjoy ice cream all month long for our August Kit of the Month.
I selected Rainbow Gallery Mandarin Floss for this month’s kit. Mandarin Floss is a bamboo stranded floss, lovely in the hand for stitching, and a beautiful sheen for this project. I threw in some Rainbow Gallery Frosty Rays for the sundae topping. It works great for ruching to pile on top of our sundae.
The border is pairs of cashmere stitch blocks, in colorful ice cream shoppe colors and stripes. Diagonal mosaic in two directions and Bargello stitches make the ice cream scoops, and outlined Hungarian stitches compose the waffle bowl for the sundae.
The finishing touch for any sundae is the cherry on top, and we’ve created a cherry embellishment for our sundae.
The kit includes an 8″ x 8″ square of 18 ct. white mono deluxe canvas with taped edges; full cards of Rainbow Gallery Mandarin Floss M802 White, M804 Medium Raspberry, M828 Aqua, M833 Bark and M837 Lite Terra Cotta, and Frosty Rays Y217 White Pearl Ice; size 22 tapestry needles, and cherry embellishment.
Complete instructions are in the book, with diagrams , stitching tips and finishing suggestions!
