raspberry parfait

Ahhhh Raspberry Parfait is this month's cow. The color is Lime green over at So Scrappy but my "green" cow was already lime plus grass green. I made an executive decision to use red violet...
and just for some sparkle... red violet sparkly glittery fabric for her face. Who doesn't want to sparkle???
Raspberry Parfait is a girl who loves to sparkle. She wants to stand out and vibrates at a lovely rate.
When she was a little calf she thought of becoming a dancer (hoofer) on Broadway...
but alas she had two left feet.
Then she thought about becoming a hoof reader,or a hypnotist, look deep into my eyes, she says....
Her ears were full of stars and moons, and she thought great thoughts. She sang beautifully or so the local bulls said, and she often took the bulls by the horns!
 She loved long walks in the paddock and yearned for imported alfalfa.
She considered getting a tatoo.
She was that kind of girl, one who wanted to experience all life had to offer.
She never left the farm, but she still sparkles.

  4. When you put the cow quilt together you'll need to somehow include the wonderful character sketches you've written for each of them!

  11. I always look forward to your cows and their bios. I agree with Mary in Maryland - you should work their stories into the quilt somehow!
    This one is my favorite. (I know I say that about every one of them. It's all true!)

  23. Leaving the farm is highly overrated! Red violet was an excellent choice.
