Juliet's Ice Cream Social Party

My daughter Juliet turned 10 this month, and we had an Ice Cream Social Party to celebrate!
My hubby made a couple of life sized ice cream cones (not pictured) and this ice cream truck. So cute for pictures!
We had a cake and sundae stand, with ice cream toppings and this adorable cake.
Here is the milk bar, complete with white, strawberry and chocolate milk. You may also notice the design "Ice Cream Sundae" on the shelf - I couldn't resist adding it to the party. It fit the theme perfectly!

And here I am with my birthday girl :)

Party Cakes

Anxiously awaiting their debut, here are the Party Cakes! I have to say I just love this one! You have to all know that I'm a dessert lover by now right?!
And here is a side view since it has been finished into the most adorable cube by Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher. You will be able to see more pictures of the finishing here at her blog:
I think this is a great design for dessert lovers (like me!) or also maybe to celebrate a special birthday perhaps. You could replace the words "cakes" with a name or date or even the words "happy birthday." Several different options, but it's cute anyway you slice it ;)
These charts will be shipping to distributor's next week along with the new April Cottages, so keep an eye out for them later this month to early next month in your shops.

April Cottage

Another month, another cottage - and now it's time for April! This one is a very springtime cottage with it's lavender house, flowers and bluebirds. And don't forget the little bunny who has his eye on those carrots! For this pattern you'll need DMC threads along with Crescent Colours' Amethyst, Sampler Threads' Chives and Weeks' Artichoke.

On Wednesday I will be posting the picture of my other new design Party Cakes, so be sure to check back here in a couple of days to see that one as well!
