Default "Moooo"ving placemat for my farming brother + thread painting

I bought this cow fabric from The Hayloft (now closed) earlier this year and wanted to make something for my dad or brother, who are both dairy farmers. The result is this Holstein placemat, Holsteins being the breed they raise and milk. Sorry all you Guernsey and Jersey lovers.

What you can't see very well is the thread painting in the grass. The effect is that the cows and all the blue puffs out. The blue is sky, but looks like a pond in some areas. It's really cool!

I really like the pocket. He can load it with silverware and a napkin and take this placemat to picnics and mark his spot at the table. Yes, his name is Ken, and I feel confident he will not see these pictures on the board anytime before or after he opens his Christmas gift! NOW...what to make with the Farmall fabric....
