Well, I'm in my room getting a break from my stitching. I'm working on getting a camera set up so I can take photos of all of my projects and all my stitching stuff. I recently found a box of my cross stitch patterns and books and did I drool!!! I found my old sewing box on which I will take a picture of. This box is at least 15 years old. The pincushion is gone, one of the feet is gone and the material inside is wearing out. I still love it.

As for me I make miniture leather saddles by scratch. I take them to the fair almost every year and come home with blue ribbons everytime. The tiniest is 1/16 scale which is about the size of a thumb nail. What got me into this hobby was after my husband died it was almost the only therapy I had. Someone one day said why dont you enter one in the fair, I kind of joked saying these things wont even be worth looking at, well I was wrong. I had people that I havent seen in a year come to the fair just to see my work that is so awsome. One person said to me, Dont under estimate yourself, what you might think isnt good enough, is beautiful in someone elses eyes.


  1. Welcome to the wonderful community of blogger. It is so much fun, I have become a follower of your blog and look forward to seeing it bloom. I would so love to see one of your miniature saddles, I have never heard of this and it sounds amazing

  2. They are awesome! Some of the things I have to do I have to use a magnifying glass! Its that tiny! I'll be posting a pic of last years winner this weekend. I was a 1st place winner. Next year I'll be working on a new one.
