My Aunt Jane Keller Herzig has just completed another cow for the West Hartford 2007 CowParade. This is based on my Grandmother's favourite china pattern and it brings back many happy memories. Though I am not use to seeing it on a cow:) Below is the first cow that she did - Delft Portrait from 2003, another cow that I love. For more information, check out the CowParade site, the cows get auctioned off for charity!

I was working a novelty hole. Selling ballots for the entrants to guess how many balls would land on the green during the day. (If you don't understand this and want to know, umm, I got it explained to me so let me know in the comments and I'll attempt to explain - it involves short grass.) Fortunately, we also had a BBQ at our hole. This meant that we had food and a tent!
We got rained out and brought off the course twice (the whole lightening thing.) The golfers were really friendly and understanding about the weather - considering that they paid quite a bit of money to be playing. Although in the end we had a few laughs, I came home a took a nice hot shower since I was cold and damp!

My friend gave me a huge zucchini out of her garden. I should have taken a photo of it before I started cutting it up, but this is what is still left to be used. I included the pen to give a sense of scale. I made some yummy Zucchini Soup and some Zucchini Bread (to take in and share at work.)

The best news, my sister had her baby on Friday, a beautiful boy - Ahren! He weighed in at 8lbs 2 oz. Here's the cross stitch I did for him. I got it done in time to leave it with my Mom so she can get it framed. I had a lovely week at a cottage with my friends and will post more on that later.
