I is for.......

Ice Cream
 Silk applique cone stitched in ice cream colours  
Indian herringbone stitches on the sugar cone, 
(the Indian herringbone is herringbone stitched one over the other )
 Interlace running stitch ~ down the side of the tag
and Isolated back stitch sugar strands in sweet pastel shades

can you tell I'm looking forward to the summer :)
Charlotte keeps talking about the holidays now, shes keen to get away in our little caravan.
I did a bit of work on the flower quilt but a had little setback with the original side when I tried to match it up with the new side, the measurements were a bit off, I expected a little bit of a difference but on closer inspection there was quite a bit, which involved unpicking the bottom row of the printed squares and shaving about an inch almost all the way across the bottom two batik squares, unfortunately it also meant I had to remove the original hand stitched signature.

however this re-alignment was needed for it to sit right.

Love the tag Yvonne.
Shame about the signature but you could tuck that piece into the quilt when you come to close it up finally and add a new one for the finish date too :0) Mo xx
