Horses #Handmade #Folksy

A glance at Folksy`s front page after I logged in gave me an idea. So I put horses into the search and came up with some lovely ones. Delighted with what I found I decided to put some of them on here. I thought it would be a nice change as I have never featured horses before. Well, to be honest it never occurred to me until now. I hope you like the selection I have chosen for you and if you want to see more, do go to Folksy and do the same as I did. If you love horses it`s worth the effort.
The Pinata didn`t get a look in today. It was so grey and blowy that I decided not to as the paper would have been blown about. Just didn`t fancy flour and water paste splatted all over me again. So you`ll have to wait for another update. No chance today as I am at work, so it will probably be tomorrow before I do anymore. That means the update will be Monday. Sorry about that.
I have been working on something that will have you throwing up your hands in horror...... I`ll whisper.... Santa Hats. Just in the trial stages at the minute as I don`t use patterns. Often takes a few goes to get it right. I do intend to write it down as I go along so that I can make a few. They won`t be exactly the same but hopefully will be similiar. I`ve got some red sparkly yarn that I thought would look great and some fluffy white yarn to finish it off with. Just have to see how it turns out. Could be a disaster that never really gets off the ground, we`ll see.
I had intended to start on some finishing but got sidetracked with a new idea. I`ve got a lovely yarn that shades from white through to a dark pink and wondered what it would look like as a snood. You know, a long circular piece that goes over the head and can be used like a scarf but also can be pulled up like a hood. I`m doing it in a lacy pattern and it`s coming along nicely, I`m pleased with the effect so far. Too many ideas running through my brain at the minute.
Okay I think I`ve waffled enough.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

A horse is a magnificent beast,
for the eys a wonderful feast.
Some of them stand very tall
yet others are quite small.
A pony is more a childs size,
a lesson or two, a great prize.
Then they grow up wanting a horse
it`s the natural order of course.
The joy of riding atop all that power
not deterred by as much as a shower.
The freedom, the pleasure and delight,
a horse and rider a wonderful sight.
A gleaming coat, a wonderful carriage,
for horse and rider, a bit like a marriage.
They work together in unison
like a unit till the ride is done.
Gymkhana`s, showjumping and more
all get the horseman out of the door.
Eager to be free and ou there flying
hearing the wind rushing and sighing,
thundering hooves along the ground,
now isn`t that a wonderful sound.
I used to ride when I was young,
never once did I get flung
off the saddle, cos I held on tight
I didn`t intend to take flight.
Now it`s something from the past
another fad that didn`t last!

  5. Great selection of horses, thank you for including my cosmetics bag.
    Looking forward to your new hat collection, I have a real weakness for hats in the winter, as I spend a lot of time outdoors I wear them all the time, and the more fun the better for me.

    Great Horse verse too, thank you.
