So far, July is proving to be a really busy month, at least when it comes to model horses.

First off, I’m going to Lethbridge Live in a couple weeks, up in Alberta. It’s been at least 7 years since I’ve been to a live show, so I’m definitely excited!

I’ve been busy trying to figure out who’s going and who has to stay home:


And because I’m short on bubblewrap and don’t want to go buy any, (I don’t want to deal with it at ALL, really) I’ve been sewing pony pouches.

PonyPouches3I don’t have a massive showstring so it’s not a huge undertaking, but I’m getting kind of tired of making them.


They’re really un-polished BUT they serve their purpose so yay!

PonyPouchesI’ve also been trying to plan out a couple of performance entries, as I’d like to give performance showing another try. I’ve been working on a gaming saddle lately…


…but I don’t know if I’ll have it ready in time, or if it’ll even be show-worthy once it’s finished. We’ll see! I am pleased with how it’s coming along so far though.


And last, but not least, today is Desktop Stables’ 6th Birthday!


Thanks to all of you who have been reading… whether it’s been for a week or for 6 years, it means a lot!

  1. Congratulations on 6 years! I’m glad to hear you’re getting out to a live show- your stuff is so awesome, it deserves to get out! The gaming set looks stellar so far, I’m sure it’s up to snuff. I’m looking forward to the news and pictures!

  2. Woo-hoo! Congrats on 6 years!
    Here’s to many more years and all the interesting posts yet to come…

    Can’t wait to see the post from the live show results, know you will do great!
    Just remember to have fun, too.
    Good Luck!!

  3. Congrats on 6 years! Your pony pouches look pretty neat, but I can’t imaging sewing a bunch for a live show. I haven’t been to one in so long, I can’t even remember. The 1990s? Hahaha. I *might* go to a fun one this fall that’s put on every year by my local toy store. The owners are just waiting to hear when Kathleen Moody is available.
