I gave Frank a groom today and was pleased to have time to snuggle up to his warm neck so I could breathe in his wonderful horsey aroma. Frank is Viv's number one riding horse and was heading to the arena for some dressage schooling. He's a lovely boy of unpredictable nature when ridden. He's inclined to see monsters in the bushes when he is feeling a bit fresh. He's a gentleman to handle on the ground. It has been two weeks since I had horse time, so I enjoyed every minute of time on the farm.
Back at home I speedily worked on making another of Gertie's Portrait Blouses. They are great under my cardies, especially with jeans. I'd like them to have sleeves, and was going to try to draft some, but decided that, being time poor, I don't want to be mucking around with a project that may end up lurking in the "too hard" basket.
I always find it interesting to see what other people are buying, because people have such diverse tastes when it comes to crafting. The Crafty Neighbour and I buy completely different products. I love the vintage styled things, and she is more modern in her tastes.
Almost time for bed. This weekend has left me with very dry hands (note to self - wear gardening gloves), an almost finished blouse, a good book started, worry about my dear dog best friend, and a craving for more time to create. I'm looking forward to the next one already.
