We are two weeks into the new year and I’m already struggling with my resolutions. (no surprise there!) I’m also struggling with bad back pain from work. What is with my body lately? I swear something is always hurting enough to cause problems.
Sooo I’ve been trying to sort out the cause of that as well as focus on what makes me feel better, like stretching and heat and not standing and… anyway…
As far as hobby stuff goes, it’s been really helpful for me to set small goals to complete by the end of the day. I’ve found that it gives a nice feeling of accomplishment. So even with stupid pain, I’m still getting stuff done, yay!
First, I completed another trio of foal blankets:
These will be going up on my Etsy shop (which is re-open) sometime in the near future, so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
I’ve gotten a few saddle pad orders done, including an updated Hogwarts-inspired one:
I also managed to solve the “I-have-no-room-cause-I-have-too-many-horses” problem, (for the time being) by switching the hobby closet of doom’s shelf with a big plastic one, leaving the small one free for moar ponies.
My goal of making a piece of tack every month isn’t going well at all, but that’s because I can’t decide what to make. I’ve got two and a half weeks left, aghhhh!
But I am working on a few new blog posts, the first of which is very wordy so it’s been taking a while. Also, last month I started putting together a hobby resources page, which I made visible around the new year. I’m still adding to it so if you have any suggestions, feel free to mention them!
I think that’s it. Now I’ll go clear off my desk and try to figure out what tack piece to make. Maybe.

Hey just a tip with your back! Ive had back injuries from a horse riding accident, and one of the worst things to do is SIT! Sitting puts a huge amount of stress on your back, laying flat on your back is the best. ( Which is hard to do when you make tack LOL ) Try Ice and heat on your back, and you can also go to the chiropractor if your back is out of alignment! It helps a lot! Try rubbing your back and getting the circulation moving, which heals it. Stretching can be good, but try not to do super extreme and fast movements!
I just thought this would help! Hope you feel better
Thank you for the advice! Things have been a bit better this week, 🙂
Can you please make a sadle pad tutorial? I am really curious on how you make them and I would like to make some in a smaller scale.
