Rainbow Cows!

No, no, no!! I haven't been inhaling strange substances to make me hallucinate or forgotten to drink enough water today so I'm having dehydration dreams - well, OK, maybe that second one cos I've been busy! The Rainbow Cows from the title are the subjects of the latest BOM block from Lynette Anderson's "Noah's Ark" free BOM. And, actually, they're not 'rainbow coloured cows', really, the block features COWS in a pasture with a RAINBOW overhead ... maybe it's just easier to show you my finished block!


Now do you see what I was trying to explain?!? And can you guess the cow's name? (Because we all know only ONE of these can be a COW, as such, because Noah took COUPLES of each animal and we ALL know there are no MALE cows - they're BULLS!!) It's 'Blossom', of course! You just have to look at the pretty flower behind her ear for the clue!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Oh, yeah! Lack of sleep starting to tell here tonight!! I love how the rainbow came up in this block, though was annoyed at myself that the border ended up a little crooked - looks like the farmer went on a bit of a bender before he built the cow paddock fence! Tee! Hee! Hee!

So, for those of you who have joined this story part way through - where have you been!! Just kidding - kind of!! I can't BELIEVE you've been missing out on the fun and excitement of Lynette Anderson's generous offer of a free BOM! Here are the three blocks available so far ...


Not only is Lynette offering this fun and funky pattern to all in blogland for FREE, she's introducing us to talented stitchers all around the world by giving us links to blogs featuring finished blocks - I've met some fun new friends!! The most recent of these being Granny Loz in South Australia. Make sure you take a peek at her cows under a rainbow - there, I found a more accurate way to describe the block this time so there was NO confusion about psychedelic bovines!! Tee! Hee! Hee! So, thanks again for the great BOM, Lynette, and for introducing us to new blogging friends!

Well, as you can tell from the muddle-headed-wombat ramblings tonight, I'm a little weary and in fact, I think my brains have dribbled out my ears tonight, so I think it's time to go visit my pillow! Oh! Thanks for all your encouragement and confirmation of my colour choice for our "Let's paint the bedroom" project - much appreciated!! The main painting of the bedroom is finished (walls, ceiling, door, skirting boards), just some trim to finish around the window, so I'll keep you all in suspense a little longer until I have the "After" photos taken at the very end!! Til next time, Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!
