A Cow from the Stash


My sewing room stash is truly magical. It's not that big--truly, it's not--but it always manages to have *just* the right thing at *just* the right time.

Today I was poking around a half-empty shelf and found just a little of this purple and gray plaid wool. It's a loose weave, and had a few moth holes, so I was going to throw it away, until I happened to wonder if I still had a needlepointed pillow front featuring . . . a Holstein. That looks just like Mabel. 


Yes, I did have a needlepointed version of Mabel in the stash. I put the two together with a little black piping (from the stash) and am looking forward to presenting Mabel's owner with this little token of my affection for her cow.

No fair Anna. My stash is nothing like that. Having said that, I may just sift through it once more to see if I have somehow misplaced a Holstein needlepoint too...highly unlikely but one can live in hope.

Oh, I LOVE this! When I was younger, there were lots of these cows in this town. Not so many now.
