Another finish!

This may be the last of the stitching I "got back"!!  I stitched this in 1990 for my mother-in-law, who collected black and white cows.  It was in a little frame and I got it back recently.  I didn't have anywhere to hang it, so I turned it into a little ornament!  It will look cute in spring and summer--and I'll think of her when I see it!
I have no idea who the designer is--it's just been too long!


Thanks for your kind comments about my little squirrel!!  (or whatever he is!!! LOL)
I've done some other stitching and finishing, so I've got more things to post!
Please come back soon--thanks for stopping by!

Well I loved the squirrel but these cows are simply gorgeous! The fabric you have chosen is such a good complement. What a lovely idea to re purpose old projects and a lovely reminder of the family members you stitched them for.

I'm so glad you are giving these older pieces a new life, Frances--this makes a very cute ornament!

The ornament is darling. I like that you used green and neutral fabric instead of black and white. It adds character to it. :-)
