This noseband took about as long as Nevermind...
|(Of course I only notice that it's twisted a little now...)|
...And these stirrups took about 10,080 songs to get to me from England.
About halfway through Back in Black I noticed the happy accident that the Breyer Youth rider fits this particular saddle pretty decently!
Less convincing from the side, but considering the fact that 99% of my saddles in no way fit any kind of rider doll, this is a mini win.
This fuzzy girth only took about half the duration of Houses of the Holy to finish...
...But I fell into the old trap of "oh, I'm sure the pattern will fit!" and not measuring the girth on the horse before I lined and finished it... Way too wide on this saddle! Ugh!
So a replacement is on the to-do list for tomorrow. Well, now I have an extra tan girth if ever I need one. (Woo for looking on the bright side?)
The Fjord monster sucked up about Zeppelins I-IIII receiving his first few coats of paint/pastels, and still has a long way to go before he gets fitted for a harness and no less than THREE different bridles.
And I reckon it'll take both sides of Hello Goodbye/I am the Walrus to clean up this mess!
All I need to do tomorrow is finish that second girth, make the crownpiece and reins for the tan bridle, and figure out a pad and then this tan set will be off my desk and finally off to its new home. It'll feel so good to have that one done!
