Hello Friends!

Isn't this cow the cutest! I just love her!

This piece is the epitome of turning lemons into lemonade because I totally screwed this up. I had the fabric in the Q-Snap all ready to start stitching, except I didn't realize until halfway through that I was actually stitching it vertically instead of horizontally which meant I was gonna run out of fabric on the right-hand side. I got very frustrated and nearly threw it out when I realized I could just stitch up to the cow and re-stitch it another day. Phew!

Since the piece ended up being more of a square shape, I was able to mount it on this white-washed wood pallet that hangs from a twine cord. I mounted it to my favorite black and tan homespun to give it a little bit more of a primitive feel and then added some twine around the edges to complete the look.

I didn't want to add a bow -- or at least not JUST a bow, so I decided to add some polka dot ribbon and some matchy-matchy flowers I pulled off a branch I had in my stash.

This looks great, and I would never have known that it wasn't the full pattern. x
