Happy Halloween Week-end and FIRST snow in CT! Here’s the UP-DATE on those cows! – – So I decided, even though I couldn’t find the original j.peg image to just go ahead and take a photo of the photo that was printed on fabric. Using a former image and making it new again! I ran the image through my printer twice to max up the color. Pretty good and it did motivate me to start a new piece. The image was flipped to have a larger herd of cows. Title? – You guessed it “Herd Immunity”, or “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”. It will be 18H x 36W as I plan to mount it on a canvas. It’s still in the hand quilting stage. (see below)

NOTE: On television this week I viewed citizens standing in line while social distancing to vote early. Many had to stand for hours; some old, some young, some with children in hand. No matter the outcome of the 2020 election we at least should be proud that so many listened to the message “Go Vote”! There is still time! And Set Your Clocks BACK . Stay Safe! . . .
