January 15 is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day! According to www.punchbowl.com:

The ice cream we know and love today evolved from ancient flavored ices. As early as 3000 BC, people in China served their guests sweet juices mixed with ice or snow.

While fruity ice cream flavors are still popular today, vanilla and chocolate are the clear favorites. According to a survey conducted by the International Ice Cream Association, strawberry is the third most popular ice cream flavor, favored by 5.3% of the population.

It’s too cold in New York to eat ice cream, so we’re celebrating instead by taking 25% off  ice cream and strawberry designs by Pepita for the day. Come on over and indulge! The sale runs from midnight of January 15th until the following midnight.

  1. I have actually stitched one of your ice cream canvases – the chocolate ice cream cone (does that count?) and it is propped up on my desk where I work!
    It reminds me of summer…. and vacation….nothing like gazing into a mouth-watering cone while working hard…and enjoying a moment of bliss!
    I highly recommend this canvas – was quick, easy…. and so refreshing!
    Little twist: Instead of leaving the middle section white vanilla, I stitched it pistachio green! Got the idea from a picture.

    So worth it
