I introduced pig to a bunch of my coworkers today. Some thought he was a cow, one thought he was a bear, some questioned his existence. One thought he is a thread cozy (I love that, by the way). But pig and I enjoyed work today--enough to make him a friend.
So I violated a rule of mine tonight: no sewing after work. I sewed after work. And made pig a cow friend.
This was the result. Gwen, I hear you about the tail on the pig. I have an idea for that. But in the meantime I was able to make a tail for the cow! I used the number 4 repair needle, the sack needle, to pull the embroidery thread through to the right side. Thanks to Kenneth King I learned how to use this needle at PR weekend Philly last year. (I used needle 4 below; though we used needle 5 in the workshop)
They are happy together and I think pig will enjoy having cow's company while watching me work again tomorrow.
