I made some progress on the cow embroidery project. I used a different fabric I had in my stash to see how the stitching would turn out. Its a medium weight cotton twill I picked up on sale in the deco fabric section. And it's cheaper than linen. I am still up in the air about it all. I got my JoAnn's coupons in the mail yesterday. I'll use the 50% off for some real linen and see how it goes. I always test things a million times if it's my own design. I just don't want to waste my time and effort some something sub par.

Anyways- meet Clover Bud!

She reminds me of a happy little cow that just freed herself from a 4-Hers grasp at the county fair (when Dad wasn't around). Just off the fabric you can imagine a poor little 7 year old rubbing his backside from falling backwards. She just likes her freedom that's all. In addition she probably just stepped into the ring and onto nice, new, soft saw dust. Cows love the feeling and can't resist to be a little feisty and run around. I should know. I have had many 4-H projects do just that same thing. Leaving me to rub my backside.


  1. You really gave that cow a lot of personality. She definitely looks like a feisty one! All of your details are incredible ... the lead rope, the spots, the utter, the swatting tail, and the leg placement.

  2. Aww what a sweet little cow! I love the spots!

  3. I like it alot, but i think you need to make some beef cattle, instead of dairy!! :-p


I absolutely delight in the fact that you would take the time to comment and continue a dialog on this blog! If you have an email linked to your comment, I do my best to respond. Thank you so much!
