mare monday #4 and #5

Okay...so just in case you haven't figured it out yet, February has been a crazy-busy month for me. Up until this weekend, I'd only been home for two full days. Consequently there was no post last MM - because I was busy, and also because there was absolutely no change from the previous week.

I happily closeted myself at home this weekend...enjoying my comfy bed, relaxing and hooking. The weather gave me a good excuse to be lazy, and this is my first chance to post online.

Progress on the horse finally resumed...and here's what it looked like yesterday (Monday) morning...

Now usually my Monday pictures have been taken before I have a chance to do any hooking for the day...but since yesterday was a holiday, I was quite productive. Here's the horse now - at the end of the day on Monday...

I am quite happy with the way it is coming. The front legs definitely need some re-hooking, and of course I've left the trickiest part for last - the head!

Wish me luck - I think I'll need it.

2nd and 3rd mare monday

A thousand apologies on the lack of post last week. I had forgotten to take a picture on Monday before I sped out the door, heading for work. On Tuesday I had the camera, the rug, and the computer - but no cable to connect them. Oh, and I didn't come back home again until last night...so that's why there was no post. Sorry.

As you will soon see, you haven't missed much. There was just a teensy bit of hooking added below the saddle for last Monday's photo...

Here is this week's update...a little more done - but there's still a long way to the finish line.

I would love to post more, but it's just another manic Monday around here....and there is just no time. I will tried to respond to e-mails and comments before I hit the road again on Wednesday morning.
