THE COWS ARE HOME

Block #3 is fini'. I am not as happy with it as with the first two, but it will have to do. I did not use a hoop. Maybe that is my downfall, but it is hard for me. To those of you who visit me, give me your insight to "hooping". To hoop or not to hoop, that is the question. I will certainly appreciate the tips.

Next come the elephants! Now where would we be without the elephants. I am not as on fire as I was for awhile, but will finish them all. Looking forward to the next block and hopefully I will be finished with the first 8 before 9 comes out (who am I kidding). Cheer me on, girls. I can do it.

Oh Molly --- lol, lol - these cows are too much. I love them. You are doing a great job with this!!! How fun.

Molly, really cute! I like what you are doing.

As far as hooping???? I don't hoop. I just have a harder time stitching in the hoop. I've been working on a redwork project and I did not hoop; however, I'm going to try it "one more time" on a new project I'm starting! We will see.

Keep it up and you'll get all those 8 blocks done!

These are great, Molly! You are moving along great. I'm still working on the first block of the "Stars Around Texas" But I only work on it when I sit and watch TV. Of late I have only been doing that on Mondays & Tuesdays for Dancing with the Stars. We will git-r-done though!

Hugs - Kath

Molly,

I love how these are turning out. I can't wait to see all of them done. I think it is cool that you are showing them as they get done. Here is a tip that someone else gave me, but I have not tried so don't sue me if it doesn't work:

Instead of 'hooping', use a light-weight fusible interfacing on the back. Supposedly, it helps prevent the bunching of the fabric caused by the stitching. If you try this, please let me know how it went.

Good luck!

Monica
