Pig meets cow finger puppet

pig meets cow

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)

I used needle 4

They are happy together and I think pig will enjoy having cow's company while watching me work again tomorrow. 
best friends

Good night and be well!
