New Fella in my Life

It has been a few years since I’ve had a new fella in my life. Now Ian, my other half is OK but I thought it was high time I had another guy as well. Anyway I found one, he’s 19 years old and really rather gorgeous. A bit of a hunk really and very gentle and quiet which is what  I need. Anyway, tonight I had my first date, we didn’t do much just plodded around the field in the rain but hey! I can still walk so I am happy about that. My new guy’s name is Harvey and he’s a Clydesdale, 16 hands high and belongs to Tom who has very kindly allowed me to ride him.Harvey the Clydesdale

Is he gorgeous or what? It has been 30 years since I rode on a regular basis so am expecting a sore behind for a while but so far so good.

National Exhibition of Wildlife Art

A friend of mine, Elaine Gaffney, has had two of her paintings accepted for the prestigious NEWA  (National Exhibition of Wildlife Art). Please take a peek at the web site. National Exhibition of Wildlife Art. There are some stunning pieces of artwork on display in the gallery. Her pieces are numbered 127 and 128 in the 2009 gallery.

Girly Bag

OK, Ok, I know it’s been a while since I posted but I’m here now. I have finished a bag I was distracted by and no, this isn’t the ‘thing’ I was working on.

I was/am actually working on a table runner for a Christmas pressie but a gorgeous bag pattern dropped through my letter box and I just had to make it there and then.

The main rosey fabric is from Moda and is from the Paris Flea Market range of fabric and is designed 3 Sisters. The bag pattern is from Melly and Me.girly bag

It’s probably not a very practical colour but I do rather like it. What do you think?
