My custom made saddle was delivered today. I am thrilled! The saddle fits Bear like a glove and feels like riding in a Cadillac. Larry, the saddle maker, went out of his way to get all matching hardware for the bridle, breast plate and saddle. Who knew that stainless steal would be so pretty. The quality of the leather is amazing. It is still so strange to me, I was able to pick ever aspect of this saddle. It is a little Australian, a little English, and a bit more Western. Worth every nickel, dime and quarters.

I thought it would be fun to let you follow along while I work on a small project this weekend. It is call, “Butterfly Garden” designed by Kay Murphey.
It’s a 25 inch square wall hanging with nine patch blocks with appliquéd butterflies and flowers.
I will be using a few of my 1930 reduction prints and a small white on white.
I am going to try and update you every hour on the progress. Let me know what you think.
