I find ice cream to be a two edge sword for me. I find eating ice cream can be a comfort...but the results of eating too much ice cream can be depressing for the pounds that it can put on. When the word was posted I'm sorry to say that ice cream was the first thing that popped into my head. My piece is painted with acrylic paints and the "sprinkles" are glass beads that have been hand sewn. It is machine quilted with invisible thread .
