Horseback Saturday May 15

On Saturday we went horseback riding most of the day. It was a lot of fun, but I am paying for it now! My rear and shoulders are ultra sore! But that's okay. I need to get in riding shape for the trail ride on the 29th. It's a fundraiser, and is 26km long. This ol' horse Buck, needs to get into shape too. He hasn't been rode much in the past 10 years.
Les and I decided when we acquired these horses we would try to ride them since we have them anyway. We have had a few rodeo worthy episodes...mostly involving Les and not me! But they are starting to come around nicely. Actually Buck is so gentle that I can pretty much slack the reins and just relax.
All in all it was a good day! Nice and relaxing!

A Few New Things



Here are a few new things I have made in the last while.

The bag I made for a customer using the pattern 2750 I have listed.

The flowers I made using a pattern I found here: http://www.rhonnadesigns.blogspot.com/.

I didn't have any really nice synthetics to work with at the time, so this is more of a pratice one. I went to the city on the weekend and dug around in the bargain bin. Found some goodies to make more of them in the coming days.
I have so much on the go right now. I have to go back to work in a few weeks and I think I have created more stress right now than having to go back to work. I better get grounded!

New room! New Inspiration!

Ahhh I haven't had much time at all to post lately. I think I have made myself too damn busy! Anyway about 2 weeks ago, my mom took my baby for the day and I had the day to myself. I decided that I wanted to paint my sewing room downstairs and jazz it up a bit. Or basement isn't finished, but there is one room that is sorta done. It was the previous owner's sewing room and now it is mine. It's the only space in the house that I can have to myself that I can leave a mess and it doesn't show!
Anyway I painted it, sewed new valances and curtains for the closets instead of doors. I also had my hubby put up a new light so that I can actually see what I am doing now. I just need to get the trim boards up and a door hung and it will be complete. Well except for decor items which I will add as I find things I like. I actually need to have some bulletin or design boards up too.
So this is what it looks like so far. Nothing too fancy, but it is much cozier now and feels more like a part of the house than just some random chilly room. It really is cold in there. So I brought in a space heater since it is easier than lighting a fire every time I go down there. I am sure it will be a welcoming coolness when I summer comes.
