This is my second attempt at embroidery. I think she turned out rather stunning.
I have been inspired by the Martha Stewart Bird Embroidered Quilt. I want to do the same thing but make it a cow theme. I already decided on 6 cow designs that I drew up (this being one of them). The embroidery will be done in a pallet of blues and greens with this silver mixed in. I'll probably use the 6 cow designs 5 times. This will equal the 30 squares needed.
I made this for my mom. I wanted to make sure it would turn out ok. I used a linen-like material found at JoAnns. I wouldn't want to work with it again. It was hard to sew and keep square. I hope real linen handles better.
