Bridled freedom

More than 2 months after my grandmother paid for it I finally finished the hobby horse she bought. It was becoming a real pain in my backside but because the little girl it’s for is having her birthday in a couple of weeks I had to sit down and ignore everything else until it was finished. So after I vacuumed, mopped, did the laundry…and the dishes, tided the house and generally dicked around for as long as possible I finished the horse including a bridle as per my grandma’s request. I had never made one before and the horse design didn’t really suit one so it’s a little wierd but it’s for a 2 yr old so I think the fact that it is pink will be the only real issue for her.

Hobby Horse with bridle

And now it has ridden out of my life I am free at last to make things I am not sick and tired of seeing for 2 straight months. Always a Very Good Thing. And just in case my WIP was in danger of getting smaller my swap from bookwormbethie arrived today with goodness destined to become a softie and a cat bed. So while I love what she sent it seems I have crossed one WIP off my list only to be replaced with TWO. Oi.

Goodies from Beth
