Words Plucked from a Rag-Bag Mind.
what wondeful photos... your future produce must be exciting you.I never knew that horses had problems with flies so needed something over their heads...it is great learning about a life so different from mine.
Poor Pebbles! I'm sure she is thankful for the protection. I'm learning a lot about plants from you. I know British flowers, trees and bushes but not too many American. Hope you got my e mail reply. Sometimes I'm not sure about this email site. I keep it primarily for my blogs so it doesn't interfere with MOTH's messages.
i sympathize with your horse, sometimes the deer flies are so bad here I wish I had a face mask.
My ponies had fly hoods, they often tore them on the fances, or I found them hanging in the trees, where the pony had had a leafy nibble and caught it on a twig. Pebbles is obviously too much of a lady to cause such vandalism :D
My horses always appreciated their masks, they knew they kept the little buggies away! I loved the animal quilt site too... too many temptations there... I too have done mostly hand applique, but this will be mostly needlefelted and I will probably also applique a couple. Maybe try machine, maybe stick with hand, maybe both. But really I wanted to try the needlefelting on a quilt, I haven'y done much 2 dimensional needlefelting. New stuff. We'll see.
