"Mama's Cow." Designed and punched by Sherry Godja from Fraserville, Ontario, Canada. 28" x 18". Made with a #10 regular Oxford Punch Needle. Wool rug yarn on cotton monk's cloth backing.
In describing her rug Sherry says, "This rug was completed during a one week rug hooking camp at The Oxford Rug Hooking School in October, 2016. It was hand drawn by myself from a photo taken while on vacation in Romania at my mother-in-law's home. This is her cow poking her head out the barn window. She is such a beauty. My favourite part is her eyes as they were the toughest part to make real looking. Also a challenge was making the cow stand out from the background as the background color is very similar to the color of the cow."
