Legs and a Goat
Bossy now has real legs and I figured out how to put her udder behind her leg. It took a couple of stitches by hand but they are invisible.
Mr. Goat is going well but I ran out of time today so he will have to get his legs put on tomorrow.
I still have in mind to do a horse and a sheep. The horse will probably be a bay with a black mane and tail. For the sheep I will look among my polar fleece fabrics to see if I still have a bit of white. I know it's not quilting fabric but it looks so sheepish. I might applique the sheep so I don't have to piece the fleece. It would be horrible to piece because it's so stretchy, unless I iron on some interfacing. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. I'd add some chickens but they woud have to be so tiny to be anywhere near the scale of these animals.
Probably the biggest challenge will be how to fit all these odd pieces together into some kind of cohesive whole.
