Weekend Progress

For the past few weeks I’ve had some health-related problems that have been leaving me in various amounts of pain. Thankfully, I found out the cause is not as serious as it could have been, but I’ve still been hurting some so who knows what’s next. :/

Model horses have been a good distraction from all that, luckily. I spent the weekend working on some commissions, ranging from saddlebags…

I’ve also been piecing together my next Arabian costume.

Well, if I decide to keep this one, that is. I always struggle with these things so we’ll see!

Earlier this year I was asked if I would like to donate something for the auction at the Utterly Horses Hullabaloo, a three day event held in the UK. Would I! I wanted it to be something special, and new Arabian costume was the result. I put so much into this piece, and it’s been tough keeping quiet about it till now!

Another finished costume

This costume came together really, really fast. It helped having most of the hard bits done already but still! It’s nice to have it complete now.
