color combo: ice cream on my desk
Lately I've been thinking a lot about the secrets that I keep as a blogger. Secrets might be the wrong word, but there are things in my life that you don't see. For example, my desk. I'm looking at it as I type this, and it's...well...embarrassingly scary. I don't know how it happens, but it just accumulates...well...everything. It will remain hidden from the internet.
But sometimes in the middle of the mess, I find treasures. Like skeins of embroidery floss that have stacked up from various projects, and they just happen to be something lovely. These colors ended up next to my drawing tablet, and I looked down and realized they were perfect together. It was like finding scoops of delicious ice cream thread.
They reminded me so much of ice cream that I grabbed a skein of brown (from another spot on my desk) to act as the sugar cone. Don't they look yummy enough to eat?
And just to show off a little of the hidden Mollie, here's the back end of those floss skeins. I try to keep the top side looking pretty for photos, but tails and knots and wacky wraps are very common around here. Hey! I use this stuff and it's not always neat!
If you're looking to use these ice cream on my desk colors, how about stitching a frozen treat? My Ice Cream Socializers pattern set is designed to stack up as many scoops as you please!
