Not only can Theresa sew (oh my, you must visit her blog to see her sewing and weaving), but she is a terrific rider and loves to explore the trails. We live in a sparsely populated area so trails really mean deer tracks, logging roads, and some people trails. It's wild out there and not without some dangers. I am thrilled to have met another woman who is willing to get out there with her horse and have some adventure.
When not riding, I have been sewing in spurts. I wanted to participate in PR a little bit more, and so entered the handbag contest. My handbag morphed from a straight copy of a Marcy Tilton design to one of my own design. She would be proud of me as I just returned from a DOL retreat and one of the mantras I took away was "Keep working on something as long as you can". Oh, and "even better". So, here are a few pics of my progress: handbag construction album
I have also cut out a Crepe dress in one of the sweetest fall prints I have. I'm looking forward to sewing this up and making a few changes on moth the fit and the design of the belt. This first one will be Version 1 (scoop neck) and the tie will be looped or snapped in the back. I used a rayon blend for this.
Hope everyone is staying as cool as possible-drink LOTS of water and don't overdo. :-) Mary
