It was a girls' weekend here, as the men of the family were off on a hunting trip. Most of Saturday & Sunday were spent at a Halloween Horse Show that my daughter was riding in. Even though it was cold and rainy, it was a good time and her horse, Sparky cooperated much better than he had at the last few shows ~ three first place ribbons, which included a costumed dressage test in Renaissance garb.
We also went out for pizza and hot cocoa, church, and otherwise stayed close to the woodstove and watched some movies.
Sunday evening I continued work on a bag Stephanie wanted for carting books and art supplies to college. She wanted one like I made here, and picked out the cherry fabric for the lining. After several setbacks~broken needle, glue problems, and other issues~I managed to finish it up this morning.If you've seen Marie Claire Idees the horse will look familiar. It's the template they have in the back used on a tote bag in the magazine. I tried to glue it on using Fabric Tac, and though it's always worked well for me in the past, it did not work here. In the end some fusible webbing did the trick. I hope she likes it.
The sun is shining today and we're up in the 50's, so I'm headed outside to gather eggs and feed the hens, and whatever else needs to be done. Have a good Monday!
