Cassie Cow

Look who's back! Advent Animals! I haven't finished one of these since May. Wow. So with this finish, I'm only behind by five. 

This one took me a little longer than usual because I made lots of changes, the most obvious of which is that she's not a Holstein, she's a Jersey! I love Jerseys, so I stitched her in DMC 435.

Other changes I made: larger eyes (and brown instead of blue) and smaller eyebrows, changed the shape of the nose and mouth, changed the bodice of the apron and backstitched the pocket in green instead of black, stitched the tray in pink instead of blue, backstitched the glass in grey instead of white, and stitched the cookies in 437. 


  1. I have to say, you do know your cows! She is adorable and your stitching is great :)

  2. Beautiful stitching! I love Jersey cows too because their milk is better...yum.

  3. She is fantastic! I have to say I am partial to the Holsteins. They are most seen by me here in Wisconsin.

  4. Cassie is very cute! Love her coloring!
