The sun is shining this morning which is so nice as it's been gray and overcast all week. The temps are better too, seems like a heat wave. I don't have to wear so many layers when I go to the stable to see the boys. Skipper seems to be okay. The vet will come on Monday and meet with the farrier to go over his feet. He seems much more comfortable with his toes trimmed back and even went out yesterday with Kipper and played in the snow. No more episodes like the one earlier in the week. We just don't know what happened. Don't know if we ever will but we are waiting for several blood tests to come back that may give us some information. Thank you to all of you that have prayed for us this week!
I have been trying to get back into sewing regularly. Several of you belong to the Friday Night Sew In so I have been doing that unofficially along with you. I must get signed up but haven't figured it out as yet. There has just been too much going on this week to concentrate on anything remotely confusing. Will get to it though. What I worked on this Friday is a simple Dresden Plate table topper. My DIL made me a Christmas one that I love so decided I would try my hand at it and make some horsey ones. This is the Christmas one and I set either a candle on the middle or an arrangement.
This is the one I made out of horse fabric. I have lots of horse fabric that I have picked up whenever I see some.
Isn't this fabric the cutest for the horse lover!?
This one says rodeo.
I want to thank Valerie, her mom Alice Grace, Granny and Needled Mom for inspiring me to dust off the sewing machine and getting to work! I have several other projects lined up that I will be putting in the Friday Night Sew In, some complicated and some not. I don't always think it's the complexity of the project that's fun but just being in the sewing room and enjoying what you're working on.
Speaking of horsey things, Funsize gave me the cutest set of votive holders for Christmas. Guess what they are made out of........yep...... horseshoes! She found these while on a trip at a Crac*ker Barr*el.
Then DIl came over last night and brought me a gift that she picked up while she and son were in Texas! It's a set of salt and peppers that she found in the gift shop at the hotel!! How cute is that?!
Guess I need to get a few things done as tomorrow is going to be taken up with vet and farrier appointments. Munchie has to go in and have her yearly shots and check up. She doesn't look too concerned about it does she?! :o)
Oh where oh where has my spellcheck gone, oh where oh where can it be??? What is that song really about???? The first one with the right answer will win a prize!
