Bessie and Gardening

Don't you just love the little cow cross stitch Bessie from Little House Needeworks ? My daughter has a cow obsession so she asked me to make her for her.. I just finished her today .

I used a thrift store frame that I chalk painted ,mounted the check fabric onto an 8 x 8 board ..then mounted the cow to a 6 x 6 board..
I have a chicken obsession but she looks cute with the chickens too :)

Some I phone photos from the garden.. Pretty much only zucchini and yellow squash coming from the garden right now..I got the baking dish below at the Good will and a matching oval one.. they are from Lenox and very expensive on Ebay and Etsy ..I paid $2.99 each !
Love all the hydrangeas in the front yard..
The zinnias are starting to open !
The back porch pots are growing like crazy !
Thanks so much for stopping by ! I appreciate all your visits and nice comments !
Linking to these fabulous parties !
I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Bessie is just adorable - your framing is really cute and I love it with the ceramic cow! You make the best arrangements - very creative!

Love the cow!!! You make me want to learn to cross stitch!!! I actually made one years ago, for my Nana. It was small, but I enjoyed doing it. But do I really need one more hobby?
I find that there aren't enough hours in the day to do all I want to do as it is. Nope, better just enjoy yourS!
Your yard is fabulous!
