We drove from Redding to Yuba City and stopped in at The Rabbit Hole in Chico, it was late in the day and we didn't get to Honey Run Quilters this time.
In Pacific Grove we went straight to Back Porch Fabrics to see the Cow Parade curated by Mary Lou Weidman and Mel McFarland. Cow Town is Mary Lou's quilt. I like how she made the body of houses and that the o in cow has the shape of a muffin. Very cute.Psycowdelic is also by Mary Lou, I like the swirling eyes and the peace symbol as a nose ring for the cow.
Mel McFarland made How Now Brown Cow.
Cowlifornia Girl is by Sue Cresse, sorry it isn't the best picture due to the light.
Great idea to use corks with wine charms for the teats.
Mooy Cowlente was made by Tina Nippal, our talented cook at Mary Lou's retreat.
Cowa Bunga was made by Michelle Groth. She had lot of fun with her background.
I love Moo was made by Mari Linfesty, she combined some hearts from one of our on line swaps in with her cows. The two calves are her sons and the bull is her husband. She worked on this last year at retreat and it is so great.
A close up of Maris head, note the ear tag, it is her birth date.
Dia de Los Mooertos was made by Patrica S. Woods.
Mooy Fiesta was made by Joanie Corte.
Frosty Amoosement by Connie Donaldson.
The Cow Jumped Over The Moon by Sandi Henschel...hey that is me, I was proud to be invited to be a part of this great display.
Here is a better picture of her all glizted up to dance the can can.
She eats the Daisies is by Rebecka Shaffer.
Boo Moo by Molly Evangelisti very cute background for the lettering.
And The Cow Says Boo! by Peggy Baldwin.
Eat More...Veggies by Kathy Collins. I like all her green stars in the background.
