I'm not as big an idiot today.....

Well, not yet anyway.

I photoed and rephotoed and even remembered to download pics. It might be a miracle. I'll check with the Vatican and get back to you.

Here's the fully finished quilt needlepoint:

It's for my sister who originally wanted a pillow, but now she's thinking maybe a framed piece. We'll see what happens!

Here's the progress on BBD ornie --

I'm doing it on Wichelt's Vintage mocha with none of the called for colors. lol Yeah, like I'm capable of using the colors called for.

And check it out -- my Americow has a face!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone. Have a peaceful evening (but a fun one) in honor of ole Ireland. May she find her own piece soon.

As a total Cow Nut, I *love* your Ameri-Cow!

The needlepoint quilt is gorgeous! I love the colors and the layout of it.

Love the needlepoint piece. And, are those colonial knots (or french knots) I see as eyes on Americow?

Great work as always. I have to get stitching so I can try to catch up .... you're blowing me away on 2008 finishes.

Hugs and Happy St.Patrick's Day (1 day late).

Chris -- knots? Are you nuts????? rotflol You must be kidding. I have been knotting recently though but I can;t show it since it's my yet-to-be-mailed F&S exchange. Annnnd, I'd like to point out that on those knots I had to add a stay stitch to keep them where they were supposed to me.

I hate knots!!!

Michele said...

I love french knots .. if you get my brussel sprouts, I'll do your knots for ya! lol

Love the quilt square! It turned out beautiful!

The nice thing about the BBD ornament is you can never tell the colors aren't what they called for in the design! I didn't have a single one of the fibers the design calls for - LOL!

Love your needlepoint quilt, Ruth! And the BB is looking awesome, too. You make me want to dig my needlepoint out, as usual.
