WOW: Afternoon Delights

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays

I didn't expect so many well wishes yesterday for my birthday - thank you everyone who stopped by and took the time to comment, it really made my day!


I always think chocolates are the prettiest things. I'm looking at these today, because I actually received them on my last birthday, over 12 months ago! I don't really eat chocolate so much as admire it (and I have no idea who enjoyed that missing one?) you can see from the bloom on the center round chocolate that these are now a bit old and stale. But still so pretty.

Why am I showing you these lovely old chocolates? Because they actually inspired a WIP of mine that I'm finally getting around to pattern drafting for release. The design is a sweet cakes sketch, but the inspiration was all chocolate. I'll let you know how I get on and hopefully have these sweet jars filled with delights and released over in the group very soon.

What's Your WOW ?

  4. Happy Belated birthday, Esther! I can't believe you resisted chocolate temptation for so long that the chocolate actually SPOILED. I do not have that kind of will power -- the way chocolate disappears in my house, you'd think there was more of a danger of evaporation!

  6. No Chokolate would last that long at my house. I eat the Milk Chocolate ones and Dh eats the rest. Hope it is a Happy Birthday! Celebrate all week!

  8. LOL - those would have barely lasted a day at my home. I admit it I'm a chocoholic and I don't want to give it up. Look forward to what you have in store for us, Esther.
