When the cows come home

Or in this case when Lizzie Kate's 'Midnight Cow' comes home. Now that I have a short term work contract until the end of July, very little stitching will be done. Therefore my Alpine Seasons Garden has been put away until August as I don't like working on it in short bursts (one hour or less).

As a result, this Lizzie Kate design is perfect for travelling with me so that I have something to hand if I feel like stitching in the evenings. Based on recent experience, I am quite tired in the evenings, so it is more likely that I will content myself with reading during the week instead of stitching.

I hope that you are getting more stitching time than I am at the moment.

  1. Hi Mary,
    I just wrote a comment but I don't know if it posted. I'm looking forward to seeing your cow, it's a cute chart. Small charts definitely give a sense of accomplishment :)

  2. That cow is totally adorable!

  3. She's sweet, love the fabric choice you made for this stitchy project.

  4. What a fun project this is. I love the red fabric very much, it's not too bright but a bit dark, just perfect for this project.

  5. How cute, Mary!! I'll bet you are missing your stitching time with Alpine Garden... hope you get more time to stitch very soon :)

  6. She is so cute! Love the fabric you have chosen for her.


Thank you for reading and leaving a comment.

It is lovely to hear what you think.
