Moo. . .

Hello Eveyone, sorry I haven't been around much. Work is taking over my life!!! ...That needs to stop.
I have lots of artwork on the go...but nothing that I can share for the moment.

I've also been trying to kept up with Carla Sonheim's course Ragamuffin animals... We were supposed to make a pony.  My Little Pony didn't want to be a Pony, she wanted to be a Moo Cow. Well you can't force someone to be what they don't want to be.  So here is my Moo Cow, made from scraps of material and paper.  I love sewing paper together, the needle makes a lovely chung chung chung sound.  

This is my 200 hundred year old French Farmhouse.  With her brand spanking new roof.  I'll be posting the inside pictures soon.  Got to go....this old lady (the house) needs lots more TLC.

Paper Saturday...I'm sharing and will be visiting everyone later. Save me a cake Lottie...xx
I'm also sharing with Sunday Sketches. :)

That's my Fun and Nonsense for now.. :) xxx

Your house looks lovely, looking forward to seeing pictures of it.

Ah, your ragamuffin cow is so cute. Making a cow instead of a horse is much more original. Have fun working on the farmhouse! That is really cool.

You're absolutely right, "you can't force someone to be what they don't want to be." You're Moo Cow is perfect being who she is. I LOVE your farmhouse too!

What a dreamy house. I bet she could tell you a story or two...

And you are quite right, a piece of art always knows what it wants to be!

Love the Moo Cow, love the house...love it all! The roof looks great. Can't wait to see interior shots of the house. I like sewing paper, too. I'm not sure why, it's just fun for some reason.

Love the pony who wanted to be a cow! Oh my! What a lovely farmhouse...bet you will have lots of lovely stories about the house!
I am so sorry for not visiting, replying earlier! (Silly internet problems added to the confusion.)

Jez said...

Your moo-pony is such fun. It's fascinating how things take on a life of their own ans are determined to be what they want to be, not what we intend. Your farmhouse is amazing. I look forward to more pics of it.

Alexandra said...
