Walking into my home after 3 months on the road was like...(I almost typed "coming home").
All I can say is that I am a true homebody and I love to putter around my house. Today I started on Christine Jonson's Inset Jacket. I worked through some tissue fitting and a small amount of math, and decided to be bold and cut small. Somehow my mat stayed in Tucson so after laying out my fabric, I pinned carefully and cut with actual SCISSORS. My goodness folks, rayon is slippery.
Here is my fabric:
I also spent some quality time with very fuzzy, very muddy horses. I scraped mud, I untangled manes, I brushed and pulled and brushed again. I used a grill brick to scrape out some of the underlying loose hair. Big Nick was happy to see me, and we saddled up for a short ride. The arena is still a bit gummy, but the fields are worse so we headed to the outdoor arena. After a short warm up, it was walk, trot, canter both directions and some gymnastics with poles. What a GOOD boy he was! He hasn't been ridden for 3 months, and I just hopped on and away we went.
Dinner is cooking in the crockpot and I am heading down to the sewing cave for some quality time with my Elna. Happy Sunday everyone!
