Still Blooming

The hollyhocks are still beautiful.  If frost holds off, they may last into October!

Have an exceptional Monday!

My Girl

Yep, you guessed it...another commercial for my main squeeze, Pompera!

I need longer arms to do selfies with horses!

Blissful hugs,

In My Spare Time

After more than 30 years I have again picked up my crochet hooks.  And here's what I have been making--fly bonnets for horses!  What?  Yes, fly bonnets to keep flies out of their ears and eyes while being ridden.  (Not to be confused with fly masks which cover the ears as well as eyes, and most of head, used when the horses is turned out to graze.)

These are just a few of the ones I've made so far.  And I am still making them!  My goal is one for each horse at the barn--and that number is into double digits....

I am combining two patterns and adding a bit of my own "flair".  The ears are made of cotton lycra fabric to be both cool and stretchy.  Many differently shaped heads so they are being made in different sizes.  I'll try to get pics of them on the horses--they look really cool!

Blissful hugs,

More Smiling Faces

Just a few days ago, five ladies joined me for a Big Three class.  We used precision rotary cutting, machine piecing and pressing techniques to create the Providence block.

 Pat A, Cherie, Susan M

Sharon N, Gale

What a great time, and we laughed lots!!!  Your chance to join us is coming again in December.  I've updated the schedule pages both here and on my website.

I'm busy horsing around, and quilting, and doing some other fun stuff.

Blissful hugs,

P.S.  I am listening to The Games, A Private Novel by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan.
