On a side note, it was the last time I will be seeing BYGONE being launched in the spring.
My Dad made the decision to sell her last year and she sold while I was there. We had a beautiful first ( and for me last), outing on her
and I have some wonderful goodies to remember her by. Look for a second
On the home front, I have managed a little sewing. I got a couple of tops done using the current Indygo Junction pattern of choice. One done as a pullover in a very light weight Japanese cotton
and the other a light to mid-weight cotton canvas. That wild animal print
I purchased over the winter.
Saturday I spent cutting out some things for summer wear.
I culled a lot of tops and blouses from last summer, some stained, some I just decided I could do better, (into the Goodwill bag they went). and some after a season found themselves in the "barn wear" section of my closet.
While I was in MA I managed to piece together a simple quilt top.
I need to get some batting and get moving on it. I'm thinking about using a thin wool. I'll have to see what's available. I have the backing fabric all ready. Maybe once the Stanley Cup playoffs are done with. ( Yes, we like hockey here too). Go Bruins!
Thank you all who commented on my back home post! It's good to hear from you all after such a long break from blogging. :)
And finally, I spent some more time with the boys outside. They have been very sweet and loving. Gene meets all their needs food and water wise, but has little time to just hang with them. They miss that. Horses can be surprisingly cuddly. Dandy likes to rest his head on my shoulder, Cooper likes to rest his forehead against my back and they both like to be sweet talked to and have those special itchy places scratched.
Parting shots: Mane: Now you see it.
Now you don't!
