Finished Stable of Ponies

Hello everyone!  Hope you have all enjoyed your festive season and if you had one, a nice break.  Chris and I have had visitors, been bush walking and checking out all the beautiful sights around our area.  The recent rains have boosted the water falls and so many gorgeous wild flowers.  It was so relaxing.

Anyway I have not been doing a lot of craft lately but I did get to finish the 'horses' for my little nieces just in time for them to be Christmas presents.  A couple of late nights stitching (after midnight) and a few needle pricks in my fingers and all the little ponies were completed.  I look very industrious!


They were worth the effort though.  They were really amazing.  Melanie Hurlston you are one awesome designer chicky!   Corey and I had races up the hallway.  Of course my horse was fastest and won the race. :)



I couldn't stop taking photos of them.  Corey and Chris became my photographer and photographer's assistant.  The one with the horses on the rocks hides Corey behind it stopping the horses from slipping.




My little cutey nieces loved them to bits.  Melanie has named hers Flower and it sleeps beside her bed on its own special pillow.  Brooke (not quite 2) can't ride hers properly yet but sits on it on the ground and holds the reins.  I think my smile was so big it made the Cheshire cat's grin look lame!

Special thanks to Emma from Ballarat Patchwork for helping us out and loving the finished product, Chris for making tea while I stitched and cracking the whip and Corey for not whinging because his Mum was so preoccupied for 2 whole days. Hugs and kisses to you all.

wow - they are amazing! I tend to get intimidated by niece / nephew presents (mainly by the fact I have to make more than one thing in a short time!), and am in awe... no surprise that they loved them!
