Crafffftttttttting

***THIS POST HAS BEEN INTERRUPTED TO BRING YOU THIS NEWS:  MY JOB HAS BEEN EXTENDED THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2012 (or as long as I can stay)  -squeal!-****


Since most the folks who I made these for have received them - and because I'm pretty sure  none of them read this blog anyway - it's safe to share now!

I did the bracelets for all of my equine friends for Christmas.  For the three ladies who have helped me a ton (since March mostly, though Sonya has been super-involved in my horse life since 2006 - she even gave me my first saddle/pad/bridle!) I made these:



Suzanne's is of her two most treasured horse things - her Arabian mare Reighnny and the beautiful new barn - that earth symbol is one of her favorite things, and it was a surprise from the barn builder, Charlie, to her (one of many surprise details on that barn).



Sonya's and Angie's are photos of their mares with this year's foals - both fillies.  The mother  with the palomino foal got EPM several years back.  I helped when she was better trying to get her to ride again, but hills - even the slightest incline - really hurt her.  So they decided to breed her.  And WHAT a pretty little girl, Kali, came out!  Bug, the sorrel mare, basically birthed her mini-me - in both appearance and temperament.  Except that now the formerly sorrel filly, Ziva, is a smutty palomino.  Can't wait to watch what these girls turn into!

These gifts were so fun (and easy!) to make.  I've still got some other projects lined up - for myself now.  I just need to get the sewing machine figured out!!

In horse news:  Planning on heading out to see Stanley today and see if he feels like tooling around on those jumps a little more.  I punched some higher holes in my leathers to hopefully achieve a better position for it all.  We'll see!  Having fun is the goal.  And I know we can achieve that!
