these are mom's creations. she doesn't maintain a blog, so i told her i would post her pictures here ... exclusive publishing rights!
yesterday, on the phone (we live 3 hrs. apart), she told me she would trade all three of my chickens for her holstein. the nerve of her !
... but i don't have any white cotton ... unless i unravel a sweater that's been going nowhere for about 10 years. hmmmm ....
just for scale reference, the cow is about the size of a sheet of paper. i think her name is bessie, and her friend the chicken is bruce. bessie is a hotpad. (mom doesn't find her inspiration for names in the bottom of a glass ....)
