...my new horse. She is a 15 year old Appaloosa and sooooo much easier for me to handle than young Millie (who, btw is also going nicely at her new home). Even though Ive only had Ellie for a few weeks, I love her to bits already. She has such a lovely nature and has been there, done that with pretty much everything. Absolutely nothing phases her.
Ive been so looking forward to riding with Zoe and this weekend we finally got the chance. There's something very special about horse riding with ones daughter.
Ive also managed to do a dressage clinic and a trail ride through the Otways with the local Adult Riding Club. This week I was lucky enough to attend a two day jumping clinic with Alan Mitchell. The combination of horse and rider were pretty ordinary the first day...
But we well and truly got the hang of it on day two!
In other news. Whilst I'm still looking for my crafting mojo the promise of cooler weather seems to have stirred the creative juices somewhat and so I have started planning for some winter crafting. In the meantime though, I thought I'd post a couple of projects I didn't get around to blogging last year.
These were my school fete contributions. Thank you card stationary sets originally found here. These guys have been on my to do list in my side bar forever! Time to move them to my completed projects. I also made some home made wheat / heat packs.
Finally, I decided to move my craft room from the old shack outside, to the spare room. Whilst it was kinda romantic to have my own little craft shack, it wasn't overly practical battling the cold, the damp and the spiders! So here's a snippet of the new set up, ready and waiting for some crafting action.
Ciao for now
