Saddle Pads

I ended up making a bunch of saddle pads throughout the week:

Sometimes simple really is best, isn’t it? I’m much happier with these than the cross stitched one I made a while back. They’re not as stiff or bulky, for one thing, and they don’t take nearly as long to make!

In other news… classes start up again on the 22nd! All evening classes, grr, but hey. At least I get to sleep in some.
