After feeling stuck for ages, something’s switched and I’m now in “sew EVERYTHING” mode. Maybe I’m trying to make up for lost time or maybe I’m just crazy. (it’s probably both)

One thing I DO know is that I’ve been feeling better than I have felt in weeks/months, which is helping so much. I keep thinking… what about tomorrow? What about next week? But there’s also this reminder to just take one day at a time.

Anyway. Pony clothes!

All of these, when finished (no I don’t know when that will be) will be listed to my Etsy shop. I never intended to have a space/star theme… it just sort of happened so I’ve kept going with it.

I’ve had a lot of interest in galaxy print blankets, so I’m trying to include multiples in various prints I’ve collected.

I’ve also got one in a northern lights print.

Fun fact: the constellation print glows in the dark. 😛

I’m also hoping to get this group of Trek inspired english pads finished up. They have been sitting on my desk for months, but if I can finish them I’ll try and include them because SPACE.

(how many years has it been since I made the first ones??)

Like I said I don’t know when these will be ready for sale. (and no, I won’t take pre-sales or holds, sorry) I AM looking for some feedback though.

Do you prefer to have a set date & time for new listings? OR do you prefer something more random?

Lately I’ve announced a day but not a set time. I feel that both have upset people and I have to continually remind myself that I can’t please everybody, but if there’s a strong preference for one over the other it might help a bit.

Another idea is eBay auctions… I’d rather not go that route BUT if you have any feedback on that I’d love to hear it as well.

I’ve decided to take the plunge and offer some of my working-style western pads as made-to-order items.

Wide_WorkingBlack02I can currently offer five pad colors, three wear leather colors, any type of tiny flag, and minor adjustments to the size.

Brown01This is something I have wanted to do for a while. Because of demand and other responsibilities, however, I have a 1-2 week turnaround time. I can most likely have these ready to go much sooner than that, but depending on a variety of things that time may increase or decrease.


I’ll be switching the thread to a lighter color… pics will be updated…

Another thing is that I am only offering this for the felt/working pads at this time. The colored pads and other items will be listed as they’re finished like usual. (I know lots of you have been waiting for saddlebags… sorry, they’re coming!) While I would like to offer more pieces as made-to-order items, I want to start with this, see how it goes, and figure out things from there. A future possibility I hope. 🙂

Thanks again for your support and interest… it is very much appreciated!

Some Shop Info…

I can’t believe March is already coming to a close! It definitely feels like spring though, which is nice even though it’s unusual for this part of the country. I don’t think it’s snowed since… February? January?

We’ll probably get snow in July or something, you never really know with Montana.

Anyway, this post is mainly an update on my Etsy shop…

First off, thank you all SO much for your interest and/or support. I am blown away by the response, and still slightly overwhelmed but it’s all good. I have made 60+ saddle pads in the last couple of months… possibly more if I count all the reject pieces, yikes! I am very, very grateful though.

Fleece_HotPinkV2_01As much as I would like to have new items listed on a daily basis, my work schedule is all over the place, which means my listing times are all over the place too. There aren’t enough hours in the day. XD

At the moment I have four listed and will continue to add more to the shop as I make them. So far I’ve been pretty good about having stuff listed weekly, but like I said it’s all a bit unpredictable at the moment.

Also, I’ve decided to start up with halter-making again:

Halter01These are currently made to order, much like how I used to make them.


I have considered making saddle pads to order as well, but unfortunately I don’t have the time to dedicate to that just yet. A possibility in the future, perhaps, but for now, they will be listed as they are made.

I’ve also had several inquiries about the saddlebags sets… I do have two more in the works but haven’t had the time to completely finish them. I was hoping to have them listed last week but… yeah. Within the next couple of weeks I hope.


Have a fantastic week, everyone. 🙂
