Here a Moo, There a Moo

I am not much for prepping for holidays months before the day, but I decided I would try to get some things made ahead of schedule for gifts. 

I saw this cute little wall hanging, and dug through my scraps.  What little time I get for sewing I managed to get 3 of these made. 

The background fabric is a batik with a snowflake looking design.  I still have to finish off sewing down the bulb ends, and find a backing, quilt, bind, and make a hanging pocket but I think they turned out pretty cute.

I also invited myself to join Dawn at SewYouQuilt2   in a Farm Girl sew along.  The first block was a cow block from Bee In My Bonnet.  I like having the option to do 6 1/2 inch blocks or 12 1/2 inch blocks. 

Here is my cow-I decided to do a 12 1/2 inch block.  I didn't do eyes yet, but the rest of the embroidery is complete.  I think when the quilt is closer to done I will do button eyes.

It is so nice to get a little done here and there.

Oh your cow is adorable--I like this Bossie in the 12.5" size block a lot--
Nice hugs, julierose P.S. maybe because i am afraid of making blocks with so many pieces, I SHOULD work on them..maybe produce a new species of cow-Alien type hahaha
