Crazy quilt horse saddle and Happy New Year's Eve.....


Here's the horse that Michaela got for Christmas. At 12 1/2 years old, I wasn't absolutely sure she'd like getting a stuffed toy, but I needn't have worried. She's a horse girl and probably always will be, and she loved it. I made the saddle and bridle for this horse, and it was way easier than the vests on the bears.


This is my New Year's Eve wish for you: May you rest easy, basking in the warm glow of your Christmas tree, with dear ones nearby. May the New Year bring you health, gladness, and fulfillment in your pursuits.

Hi Janet,

No wonder your DD loved the horse; it's really cute. I made some horse pillowcases for our neighbor girls who also love horses, but I'll bet they'd have preferred a stuffed animal like the one you made.

Happy New Year to you, too.
