I did get my plump little pony Cooper out on Tuesday. He hasn't been out for a ride in months and as always, was just the same steady Eddy I put in the paddock late summer. He did his share of rubbernecking around, checking out everything. It has been a busy time in the woods. Before Christmas we had the car chase out of Klamath Falls, with 3 bomb throwing, drug making, lowlife suspects, two which escaped into the woods next to and behind our property. One was captured the next morning and the other still missing since that incident. There have been multiple searches over a few weekends and you can be sure the horses have been alert to the fact that the woods have been busy. Plus who knows where this jack ass is, dead or alive. There is an article here which recaps the events.
So, we were both cautious and alert as we made our two mile loop at a dead walk on a cold sunny morning ( wearing the Landgate top I might add with treat bulging pockets...), in which the scariest thing we spied were two chattering black squirrels. Into the Woods indeed!
I cleared off the Gilmore Gem and will be prepping a warp for him this weekend. Something fun and colorful and not holiday colors! And the Murphy loom has seen some action too.
Orange and purple, although again, the light is playing tricks.
I have an orange and turquoise one planned after this one. Beyond that, who knows what colors I'll dig out for the last towel!
In the sewing salon, a corduroy tunic is in process. I'll get pics when it is completed and then I am hoping to carve some time out this pre Superbowl weekend to get some cutting done. There are two additional Merchant & Mills patterns to test out and I sure do have some great fabrics in stash to pick from for some go to favorite patterns.
But really, this post is about the Parting Shots: The Princess and the Pea or Sleeping Beauty? I can't decide.
