A Moo-Ving Cross Stitch Finish

cross stitch: sleeping beauty
(People on my f-list are seeing this twice)

This design is called "Bessie" and is by Little House Needleworks. The colour choices are my own: I struggle to visulise a cow done in hand dyed threads without developing a strange striped effect. The red is considerably less bright in the real world. It was stitched in 28ct Jobelan Evenweave, which I've used before with bigger projects, and the fabric is incredibly floppy but happily is pretty much uncreasable.

For some reason I thought this was going to be a nice, small project for my Knit and Natter Group (a more genteel Stitch and Bitch with a substantially more mature make-up) and, well, a 5in square with most of the fabric stitched, it wasn't.

Love her! I really like the colors you chose. We have a lot of real-life "brindle" cows in this area and their coloring often makes me think that they need a bath. hahaha! I like my milk cows CLEAN!

I hear you about the joblean. I used it a couple of projects ago. Oddly slinky. I prefer my fabric to a a bit better "grip". :)
