For quite some time now, I have wanted to cross-stitch a motto for our home. It’s the motto of the Madras Public Library:
“To be literate is to possess the cow of plenty.”
Greatest motto ever, right? Yes. But I need a good cow image, or possibly something nicely Indian-looking. (Here is an image of the original picture.) I have had no luck so far; I don’t want a cow that looks too American and country-cute, this being an Indian cow of plenty. I’ve looked around for Indian-style cross-stitch patterns, which are a little on the scarce side, and have found very nice Lakshmi and Ganesh images that are way too large, and that’s it.
So if anyone knows of a good image that might work, please let me know. I’m sure this thread will sink like a stone, but hey, I’ll give it a try!
