Just a BIT of Overpackaging :)

Worst (or best depending on your sense of humor) case of over-packaging yet! There was air wrap too. These are 5 gal unbreakable buckets & yes they would've fit all in one box, as well as the smaller box, all ordered from same place at same time in the same order. Was free shipping for me to boot. I wondered if this was going to happen when I got 5 tracking numbers :)

My First Alabama Chanin Project

My first Alabama Chanin. I bought someone else's kit off eBay on an impulse. I did absolutely everything wrong: ignored that this stencil was meant to be beaded, sewed sloppy too-small stitches & put sleeves on it. I hated everything about it - except for the fit. So I overdye it this morning. I like it a whole lot better now. Just ignore the fuzzies - that was another brilliant idea (not) of dyeing cotton sliver in the same pot.t

Corky is Photo Bombing Again

Corky is photo bombing again. Good-sized shawlette (that's a double bed) one gradient skein with clear definition between colors. I may write this pattern up. Yarn was gift from a friend I believe.

A Pretty Sunset & BIG THANK YOU

Just a pretty sunset to go along with this BIG THANK YOU to all who ordered from my NEW shopping cart & Intentionally or UNintentionally, served as my Sandbox Testers! Extra-Special Thanks to those who let me know something was wrong! All better now & all your orders are on their way out with a little something extra for all your help! Needs a bit more prettifying, but working like a charm now!

Gumdrop is quite happy with my Old Passier Saddle

Oct 30, 2018:  She says it fits her quite well and is comfortable to boot.  I wish I could say the same for it fitting Kaylee properly – if anything it is TOO wide.  So it  is going to another home as soon as I get it all cleaned up.

Gumdrop is quite happy with my old Passier saddle which is in good shape. She says it's very supportive & puts her in an excellent position.

Ah Darn It!

Oct 30, 2018:  So my beloved old Dominique Barbier brown dressage saddle that fits Kaylee and Sierra has a torn seat. Yes, I could use a seat saver, but I don’t like those.  This is not a cheap repair. I’m going to try and patch it. Why?  It fits Kaylee & Sierra & me. And it fits KAYLEE – I repeat fits KAYLEE. Stay tuned!  Plus it came from a friend – and has special meaning!

The Shot of a Lifetime for a Cat Person

Went thru the military park & visited the Cairo on my way out of Vicksburg Sunday. Got the shot of a lifetime (at least for me & any other cat person) at the Cairo :). #fiberfuninthesip
