In keeping with the whole cow thing we got going, this year being the year of the cow/ox… I thought I would share with you the “MILK MOON” from the MOON QUILT a.k.a.. “the ugly quilt”.   So far I have been able to find plenty of moons  to embellish and stitch from my current stash…. It’s great to be able to create a quilt from stuff on hand!!!

Continuing on with the whole cow theme…. I found some great words of wisdom over at the “GOOD OLD DAYS” magazine e-letter from one of the greats, Gene Autry…

Gene Autry’s Cowboy Code

  1. The Cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man or take unfair advantage.
  2. He must never go back on his word or a trust confided in him.
  3. He must always tell the truth.
  4. He must be gentle with children, the elderly and animals.
  5. He must not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.
  6. He must help people in distress.
  7. He must be a good worker.
  8. He must keep himself clean in thought, speech, action and personal habits.
  9. He must respect women, parents and his nation’s laws.
  10. The Cowboy is a patriot.

and finally…. the middle child, the only girl, has had a birthday… she is 11 now… and she got TWO cakes.  one with friends (homemade from scratch) and one with the family (from a bakery)
