PCP--aka Purple Cow Progress

It seems I have been sort of obsessed with this purple cow. When I have not been working or stitching at The Sunflower Seed, I have been doing some stitching on it. Here is where she was at about noon when I took this picture. Since then I have finished the tail and most of the rest of the floral-type motif in the middle.

We have had rain all day today. Cool front and remnants of Tropical Storm Lowell from the Pacific. Not long ago they even issued a tornado warning for counties east of us. The forecast is for continued rain through tomorrow. Managed to get out and go to the grocery store, but It was mighty wet.

Have gotten my Google Reader down under 100, but have mostly been reading not doing much commenting. For the longest time, I was up to date almost every day and with being gone a week in May and then again in August, I got way behind. I like to keep as current as possible. Hope to be caught up in a week. That is my goal.

Surprise! This is going to be the shortest post I have ever done. I am going back to stitching and watching a ballgame and keeping an eye on Ike. My thoughts and prayers are with those that are in the path of that dangerous storm. Hope everything turns out better than they are predicting.

Hope everyone as a great stitchy weekend!!!!

Cow is coming along great. I just love Needle Necessities floss. Have your tried any of the "replacements" yet.....Threadworx? Nice big skeins just like NN. I think they just changed the color names when they bought out the company. Don't worry, I always fall behind in reading and commenting and I only follow about 20 blogs on a regular basis.

Love, love your quaker cow, such an awesome color to stitch him/her up in! Can't wait to see this completed. :-)

I tend to read more than comment on Blogs, myself. I just so love to drool over all the pretty stitchies everyone is working on~love to see how they've decorated their homes too.

Enjoy your weekend!

That cow is a hoot. She looks as if she is thinking to herself "Isn't every good cow a purple one?".

Kathy, thank you for the comment on my "Village Sampler". This is a Prairie Schooler design (which is OOP) so all of the houses and yard things you see, come straight from this leaflet. :-) I wouldn't have the common sense to put together such a lovely village all on my own. LOL

Have a super day, and Happy Stitching to you!!!
