    I cut this 6x8 puzzle for a friend's birthday (still need to sign and date it).
    I tried a little bit of color line cutting around the cow's head, particularly the cow's black and white markings on her head, the ears and the muzzle. The flowers were a little trickier for me, not quite at that level of cutting yet...

    I'm thinking of cutting another one with the grey cloudy sky cut out of it so that the puzzle is only the cow with the sunflowers...

    Nice work. My first freehand cutting (Christmas tree card) could almost be split down the middle by pulling from the top two corners. I think it would look great with the sky dropped out.

    My rookie suggestion. On the cow, instead of having your tabs going into the cow's ears have them extend from the cow's ears. Your tabs look like they lock really well.

    Congrats again.

      Nicely done and looking forward to the clouds being cut away in your next attempt...

          Great job, Eileen!

          Your puzzle has brightened my morning, and has also left me curiously thirsty for a glass of milk.

          Nice work!

              Great Puzzle! Looks like a typical cow..... right in the middle of where she doesn't belong!!

                Thanks for the comments everyone, especially the one about cutting the locks into the sky instead of into the cow's ears. One more thing to remember and plan out when color line cutting...

                    Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                    I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                    These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
