Her name is Cherry Pie!

Ain't she sweet?   Her name is Cherry Pie.
This is "cow" she started...
Choosing floral fabric from the red scrap bin.

I went through several choices, trying to vary the tone of red, the scale of print and keep it in florals.
All the cow girls are in florals. It's that kind of herd.

As you can see I changed my mind about the ears and used the really super sparkly one for lips and ears.



 I have been hoarding this fan print scrap, which was about 5" X 10" waiting for the perfect moment.

This is it! The print is all red lines on white but looks very pink from a distance.
Color is so cool, the human eye just mixes the different frequencies in it's own way!
Anyway, there are some prints you just like lots and I used all my fave red scraps on this girl. The shoulder fabric is dynamic, the strip down her nose both make me happy to see.


All that red seemed to call out for a little straw hat with ribbon and flowers. The ribbon was two colors of pigma pen, red and green. The flowers are motifs from one of the discarded fabric choices.The gold is a mosaic piece I had out to do some flamingos in yellow.  It's not fused down yet.
Even the ironing board cover is red this month! I made several in cotton duck fabric and just pin in place over my table top board. I use the little travel iron for seams, because it doesn't seem to dim the lights.
So here is my weekly project using red scraps. Visit superscrappy to see what other people are making.

  3. Hi LeeAnna!
    I wish we had this lovely herd of cows back on the farm!
    Something from internet....
    "A lady from the city and her traveling companion were riding the train through Vermont when she noticed some cows. "What a cute bunch of cows!" she remarked. "Not a bunch, herd", her friend replied. "Heard of what?" "Herd of cows." "Of course I've heard of cows." "No, a cow herd." "What do I care what a cow heard. I have no secrets to keep from a cow!"
