Cow Tipping

Cozyegg Designs 2404 20120511

Thanks so much for all of your kind words about Othello. We’ve sure been missing him. I’ve spent the week trying to get sort of readjusted to having an “empty nest” so to speak. And I’ve tried to get back to my stitching as well. One thing that has been brightening my days is my new project bag out of Tula Pink fabric, thanks to Sylvia. I’m absolutely in love with the button she found for this and although Sylvia said she made this one big enough to carry around Dutch Beauty in, Isabella’s been enjoying being in there for now!

And speaking of Isabella…I am way overdue for my May WIPocalypse update.

I’ve finished off all the letters and numbers at the top and you can see the very tippy top of the cow that I’ve started. I’m so excited to get to the cow!

I’ve been working along on my leaves too, a length of thread at a time.  That seems to be working well for keeping me from getting overwhelmed at all the leaves.  She’s been such a fun stitch so far, and I have really needed something to take my mind off everything.

Hope you’re all having a Happy Mother’s Day, whether you’re spending it with your mother, your children or your furry ones.

I am grateful for good memories.

  17. Isabella is looking wonderful. I love your new project bag, great fabric.
    It is amazing how empty the house can seem after the loss of a pet. I am glad that you had the extra year with him and were able to lavish him with extra attention. I still miss Lex, my big girl. The last year we had her after her sister passed she really bloomed and loved the extra attention.
    Have a good week and I hope you have some time to spend with Isabella. The cow will make you smile.
