You Herd It Here

The size of the herd continues to increase.

Anya made this amazing patchwork cow grazing in the green, green grass. She came from Anya in Wellsboro and arrived today at my office!
These twin cows from Deb may have some Swedish heritage, judging from their lovely blue and yellow surroundings.  They certainly are happy looking.
 Mrs. Goodneedle sent this terrific block with cows in the corner and milk in the middle.  The cows look udderly congenial.
 Another patchwork cow, this one wearing a bit of a bewildered expression, carefully crafted by Jean.  She made me remember my brief foray into piano lessons as a child where I learned the names of the spaces on the bass staff as "All Cows Eat Grass."
 Liz pieced this spectacular purple cow, also grazing in the grass, and sporting a braided tail!


Rondi sent this paper pieced beauty who is wearing an orange button in her ear.  Rondi sent an explanation that all the cows where she lives wear identifying ear buttons -- who knew?  Rondi also sent a piece of Obama fabric which was a delightful surprise bonus.

Thank you, thank you, one and all!

Although it's adorable, I'm afraid I can't take credit for cow#4.

Wonderful bovine beauties. I just drafted my block and hope to squeeze it into the sewing queue today. I actually get to stay home and sew--well, there are a few chores calling my name (more like shouting), but there will be plenty of sewing in the mix.
