Speaking of crafting, that is how I initially got my start. Back in the days of craft malls (where I bought the cow-pig), my mom and I rented space in a local shop. I made dolls and quilts and my mom painted acrylic wood plaques and objects. After working at it for a few years I began taking out a few ads in a crafting magazine selling doll patterns. All the while I was still cross stitching. The day came when I took a leap of faith and bought a computer program for my Mac and started designing. That's when I sold my first patterns to Leisure Arts.
Mr. Spot is back on the shelf above my desk. He needed a good dusting anyway so I'm glad I took him down to show you.
You know I adore cows, but if 'he' is a cow then he must be a she!! But definately a cow and I adore her.ReplyDelete
Very cute...? cow...yes I see a cow.ReplyDelete
Hmmmm...perhaps it's a Cip or is it a Pow you know a cross between a cow and a pig. Things happen on a farm. LOLReplyDelete
I love him!!! I think he's a cow..:) I miss those craft malls; I still decorate my home in "country" style. :)ReplyDelete
is it, because I´m from Germany? I see a pig. I really cannot see a cow...Where is the udder? No, no...this is a little piggy...
Ha ha. I think he's a pig. But only his creator really knows. He's cute either way. I used to have a stuffed giraffe. For years my friends would insist that he was a cow. They were wrong, I don't care that no one ever agreed with me. So stick with what you see, regardless of how many of us disagree. ; )ReplyDelete
does he have a curly tail? :)ReplyDelete
We definitely need to bring craft malls back! I love them!ReplyDelete
Sharon. . . . his tail is twine and has a little knot at the end. MORE confusion!
Love the comments. . . . . wouldn't we all have the greatest time together debating this? lol. . .
I am assuming this little guy has no tail? That would be a dead giveaway. Curly tail = pig. Tasseled tail = cow. He is very cute, no matter what his species!ReplyDelete
Your cow is a Holstein, I just looked it up. I'm glad you jumped into x-stitch, we all get to enjoy your patterns in our homes. I love your monthly ornaments,soooo cute! deb-beeReplyDelete
Indeed, it is very difficult to say what he is a cow or a pig :-) but is he is special and sweet.ReplyDelete
lol! I can't say I know just what he/she is but he/she sure is cute.ReplyDelete
