Nearly Done

Giveaway aprons are 2 steps from being completed. :-) Sorry for the delay...we've had a busy couple weeks with 3 horse shows.
Waitin' for the next class on her trusty Mare, Molly.

I have to say, English is my favorite to watch. It's a much faster pace and the horses really move out.

I was SO proud of Farmgirl. She entered 20 events and brought home 20 ribbons, including 3 firsts, 6 seconds, and 2 thirds. It was so fun to see her win. She was clearly a crowd favorite as a huge cheer would go up every time she placed. I think it's because she's the littlest rider by 3 years for her class. She's the middle rider below. She also got High Point Reserve for her class. That means she received the 2nd highest total points for the weekend shows.

Thank you for the kind compliments on the baby blanket for my new niece. Several people asked where I acquired the patterns. Most of them were from Needlecrafter. Some were enlargements from a Japanese embroidery book I purchased on Ebay. As for the simple piecing pattern, I just made it up. If anybody is interested, send me a message and I'd be happy to tell you the piece measurements.
