My friend, She's a COW...

What? You think it's mean to call my friend a COW. I don't. She doesn't. It's actually a great honor in our community. See, being called a COW means that you are a Commanding Officer's Wife! And that's exactly what she is now! VAW 112 (not my husband's squadron, but another here on Point Mugu) had their Change of Command today and my friend Jen is now the "Official" COW of Vaw 112! 
So this morning while they were having their Change of Command ceremony, a bunch of wives from our squadron (VAW 113) went and decorated her house "cow" themed.

Tonight is her Change of Command party at their house and I am giving her this:
a "cow" themed table runner....

I had made the top and after the fact found this on Etsy. So I did the applique on the back because when I laid it out to do it on the front, with the cow print fabric, you couldn't really see the cows. So the back will have to do! And...with my inexperience of doing applique and using fusible web, of course, it's reversed! I never know which side to trace on etc.! Didn't really matter for this so it still turned out ok.

Our Change of Command is on the 15th so you may just see a repeat next week! Have a great weekend!


  1. Cute! Best of wishes to the COW!

  2. How sweet of you to surprise her like that!
