Day out, Work in Progress

I couple of weeks ago I bumped into an old horse friend from my sharing days before children.  I literally shouted across the stable yard “I know you” to buy time till I could remember her name! Catching up with news on the old horses and people I was encouraged and now able to get in contact with the owner of my old horse share.  This weekend I went to see her and the second love of my life ROSS!

How beautiful is he.. doesn’t look a day older and certainly not his 26 years!!! Unfortunately, his mummy can’t quite get down as much as she would like to give him some love so I am going to go down and see him hopefully once a week for a chat, groom walk-out and maybe some lunging.  I can’t wait! Unfortunately, being out of the saddle so long, the weight I have put on since having my big girl and his increased years means I don’t think it would be fair to ride him.  Maybe something to remember as I reach for the biscuits, cake or chocolate.  I expect one day soon he will feature in some kind of sewing.  I fancy trying a raw edge applique..

In other news, the summer holidays are here and I’m spending lots of time with both my girls.  I’m trying to pace myself and doing quiet sitting activities as much as possible.  At the first stitch and bitch I was shown a you tube video and it included a simple braiding with cardboard circle so I though I would try it with my big girl.  She can do it and does it but it looses her attention quite quickly which is to be expected at 4 1/2yrs.  I on the other hand am finding it quite addictive!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on a UFO started last summer.  I jelly roll I can’t remember its name but had it for a few years without having the courage to do something with it.  I will do full post on it once its finished but hear is a sneak peak…. just the binding to hand stitch.
