What a week!!

I had a very busy week, for some reason. But it was all enjoyable and the weather was great. I did get a bit of sewing done. A friend of mine has always wanted a house on her property instead of a mobile home. I told her about 10 years ago, that whenever she built a house, I would make her a wall hanging. Well, guess what? LOL. She is a cowgirl at heart and wanted something "horsey". I couldn't find any purchased patterns that I liked, and resorted to googling "horse quilts" under the images tab. This picture came up, and I was never able to find out who made this. So I drew it freehand and made it into a wall hanging. If the person who made this originally sees this, please let me know. I want to thank you. I made the eye a bit too large so he looks a little scared, don't ya think? But I tried some freemo quilting on my Bernina and was rather pleased with the result. I think she will like it.

Next week we're going to go to Atlanta to see my son's new house. And we will play some golf while we're there. Just a short visit though, just the way I like it!!

Great Job!! I like the way your horse's mane sticks up.. It looks like he's running against the wind. Your friend is going to love it. Have a fun trip.. My friends have a sign that says "Company like fish smells after 3 days." LOL

I think you could probably find a photo and transfer the pic to fabric and make a square of the horse
Whenever I see a horse's head I think of The Godfather...oh, that's just
It's a great gift for a horse lover.
I wish I did applique sometimes. My son has 3 horses, he'd love it.
