When I finally got back to riding in September, there was a new horse at the barn--Pompera.  When I went into her stall the first time, I was so surprised--she's a Morgan!  Eighteen years old--and I'm smitten.

I've been riding her pretty steadily since that first encounter.  And I make sure to groom her whenever I'm there, even if I'm not riding.  

And guess what!?!?  I am cantering!  Just in the last couple weeks.  It's amazing and scary all rolled into one!  Remember I didn't say I was good at it yet--just that I am doing it!

So that's the horsey news update.  On the quilting front, I pieced a small top, didn't like how it turned out, ripped off a row and still didn't like it and then took it back to the original squares.  I've documented the progression/regression and when I finally decide what to do (it's up on the design wall now, in pieces), I'll share.

Blissful hugs,

P.S.  I am listening to Trouble in Mind by Jeffery Deaver and just finished The 7th Month by Lisa Gardner.


  1. Congratulations Sharon! Cantering is a great milestone! Riding a Morgan, boy howdy, you are in tall clover!

    1. Thank you! I just love Morgans and am so excited to be able to take lessons on one. She's just the right size for me, unlike the Thoroughbreds who are so tall I get a nosebleed! (Love all horses, but being a bit closer to the ground makes me feel less like I need a parachute in case of an unexpected dismount!) Tall clover, indeed.

  2. Great picture and beautiful horse! Keep up the good work.

Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
