Last week I finished up these blankets:

This week I finished up the Star Trek inspired saddle pads.

I’m going to be listing them in my Etsy shop this Saturday, around noon MST. If you’re interested keep an eye out!

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.

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.
