Knowing that their clients grapple with excessive food lust, dangling this stuff in front of us should be beneath this corporation's dignity. I vowed when I joined that I wouldn't fall into the trap....but then, well, heck, they've got the words ICE CREAM and WEIGHT WATCHERS on the same box. So I caved and bought. I'm only human.
Then, even worse, I ate the first one while sitting at my computer, contrary to all weight loss psychologist advice (I'm supposed to eat isolated at a table, staring at it.) I'm also supposed to eat slowly, but somehow, in an all-too-brief amount of time, I was left with this.
But then, because I quite liked the graceful shape. It reminded me a bit of Cheryl Lynch's futuristic quilting template I'd used to make this 'modern' baby quilt, described in a recent post.
Here's the back:
A corded edging finished it up. I like it!I'm thinking about bleaching out the shapes on the back. I'm also thinking of stitching the original stick to it. Maybe set it horizontally on top.
It might also make a nice clutch in which to put an ice cream store gift certificate for someone who is young and/or does not yet need to join Weight Watchers.
If you are interested in having this template as your very own to fool around with (plus a low-point processed junk food ice cream treat), these graceful sticks can be found within Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars (and some of their other flavors).
This experience also made me wonder what other templates I had lying around the house. I looked in our plastic tableware compartment and found these:
Tracing them has great potential - or, come to think of it, I could simply stitch them to a quilt!
Have you made a quilt from templates found around the house?
