The Cow Jumps Over the Moon...

Here is a new fabric and wood piece we just finished!

Hey, diddle, diddle!
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Remember that rhyme?

This piece is about 12 x 13 inches square.

The cat with the fiddle and the cow are made from wood and the background is a fabric appliqué.

This is a night scene, naturally - the cow would not jump over the moon during the day - and Marlene has captured a moonlit night using darker shades of fabric -cottons and wools.

The detailing on the fabric is great - and there is a little pond in the foreground that has three shiny silver fish and a little turtle approaching the pond. The windows on the houses are gold wool felt and look like they are lit up.

The cat playing the fiddle stands on the lower right side of the box - she is stomping her paws to the music as the cow leaps over the moon.
