Tongue in Cheek

So pretty! What cheer they give!


Our daffodils are just barely poking their heads out of the ground, I can't wait for them to officially make their appearance!


Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous!


i so want spring too...
or even a semblance of it

the only green here
is my envy,


Oh, pretty! I just went outside to check, and ours are blooming too. :)

By the way, that felt horse? That I thought looked so easy? HA HA HA! I had a terrible time getting it good and stuffed without having the legs splay wide apart. And then, also, I had trouble getting all the legs to touch the ground. Actually one is up high like a dog taking a pee. It's so funny, I'm going to take a picture of it and post it on my blog, but not until after I've made one that looks like it's supposed to. So, any tips?

REPLY: I'm posting TIPS here in case anyone else has a naughty horse that insists on behaving like a dog.

You can take a few stitches on the underside to correct the leg placement. Position the legs, then tack them together where they join underneath.

I used a blunted bamboo skewer to stuff the tiny parts firmly. Then I also had the idea of using Q-tips, bent in half and inserted into the legs to make them sturdier, but my horse didn't seem to need the support after I tacked the legs, so I never tried it. The idea still intrigues me though and I may try it some time to see what happens.


What a pretty picture!!! Can't wait for spring!
