A Little Monday Musings



A Little Monday Musings...

On my hoop- is my newest design that I'm only going to offer you a sneak peak of...  :)  Well- that's because it's going to be done very very soon- and it's release comes within a week or two tops...  It's got a few "catches" if you will, and I'll be announcing them here, on FB- and a few other places- as I'm reallly excited about some things I'm going to be doing with it...

Around the homestead too- we've been ever so busy..  Looking at a couple more riding horses to add to our family, as our little Donkey- Ginger - is for mere fun, love and entertainment- as we just love her so, and she keeps our "semi-retired" old pony draft cross- Blacky- company..  Rach and I miss the trails terrible- so we're getting back to some fun around here..  Love hitting the saddle and just heading on out....

One of our new guys- whom I am picking up tomorrow- is an older guy too- but not too old- and has a long life ahead of trails for us...  He's a Thoroughbred- long ago off track, and he's just a delight..  Loves to work and ride- and go and just do..  He's coming to our home tomorrow!!!  I can't wait!!!  And his name is Cooper....
Here he is:



And we're going to look at another retiree- soooooon I hope- for Rach to ride..  Praying it works..  He looks like a great prospect for our family...

On another note...  I've been very very very busy - overhauling my website and blog and my etsy shoppe- so that everything I do- is seamless- and best represents what I'm doing- and where everything is...  Cohesiveness..  Yes- that is what I am shootin' for....

And- I've got lots of club project work ahead- and two more magazine deadlines to meet..  I'll be chatting more about that soon too- but just for the knowing- now- I've got a great pattern being released in this upcoming issue of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher's Magazine- and then 2 more to do for the upcoming holidays..  WHEW- right?  So- we're finishing our homestead, I've got magazine deadlines, public pattern releases- and my club stuff..  I couldn't be happier..  Things are GOOD...

And on that note my friends...  I've a bit of work to do  - to wrap up my sneaky peak I showed up at the top of the post- and seeing how my whole family dozed off- after snacks and supper stuff- I'm going to take advantage of the quiet ....  :)

Enjoy my friends- see you soon- and keep watching for daily news and my site updates all over..  I'm on the jazz....
