Peppermint Candy?

After 11 days, this is the first day I have waked up without a 3-year old in the house. Ezri spent ten days at the Cleveland Clinic having a neurological evaluation and her 3-year old sister spent those days with me. It was a fun challenge to get her up and off to pre-school every morning. We had frozen yogurt at TCBY every afternoon. We always have to watch Ezri’s weight, so treats like frozen yogurt are very special. Kes is a very happy little girl, and it was fun spending one on one time with her.

In my down time, I started playing with a peppermint candy embroidery. There are no special plans for it, but a few ideas are beginning to gel in my head. Perhaps a holly leaf and peppermint candy wreath quilt block? Thought you’d like to see where I am with it. The blue is one of the first iterations and the purple is a later iteration. Still not sure about the edges, but that will come. This candy design fits the Accuquilt GO circle die.
