NORMAN THE COW...RIP Placemats
A friend has been telling us about the cow her husband has been taking care of for the owner. She said that very soon Norman (that's what they named the cow) will be 'taken away' (if you know what I mean). We've been teasing her about helping Norman escape, how her husband will really miss him, etc. I decided to make some place mats for them to use when they are 'chowing down' on Norman! While I was shopping with a friend I managed to find some fabric with black and white 'cows' (the color of Norman) and other farmyard critters. The back is a red and white checked print (think..picnic tablecloth). I did some loop de loop quilting and then added a twill ribbon on the back of each one that I embroidered with my Janome...it says: Norman RIP and will tell her it means Norman...'Rest In Pieces'. (a bit sick I know, lol!!!)..... Gave them to her today and she loved them!!!
