UFO's Best Forgotten

I stumbled on this a couple of days ago. (Actually, my cat, Mandu, found it and drug it under the piano.) At the time, it seemed like a good project. After reading so much about Aphtae epizooticae in the UK, I decided it would make a nice wall hanging. I have since changed my mind. I'm not sure I will ever finish this germ.

The first applique lady who identifies this germ in the "Comments" will win a fat quarter.

Margaret, I am not sure what you mean by identifying, something like this?
"Foot-and-mouth disease, highly contagious disease almost exclusive to cattle, sheep, swine, goats, and other cloven-hoofed animals. It is caused by a virus that was identified in 1897. Among its symptoms are fever, loss of appetite and weight, and blisters on the mucous membranes, especially those of the mouth, feet, and udder. Discharge from the blisters is heavily infected with the virus, as are saliva, milk, urine, and other secretions."

I released myself from several UFO's over the past two years. Here's the key... :) You have to donate or pitch them..they can't just go back in the UFO closet. It isn't gone until it's gone!

Interesting though, I don't know how big it is but it would look great on a denim jacket lapel or shoulder?

Sería incapaz de hacer una labor tan bella, de verdad, Mandu, sabe lo que quiere y por eso lo encontró, que listos son nuestros gatos. Besos, Feliz S. Valentín.

Jane, you are correct! I was trying to portray the design of "Foot and Mouth" disease, which I thought was very interesting and unique, despite it's notoriety. I'll be getting a fat quarter off to you! How fitting that someone in the UK would identify this germ!
