I don't know if I can upload pictures yet. Haven't had time to check! I just checked, yes you can! These are tow of the things on eBay right now.
Today I go to Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara. I have signed up to sell Opportunity Quilt raffle tickets for my guild between 2:00 and 4:00. I also want to run to Joanne's (ick!) for some poly craft batt. I don't want exactly what I had last time and I want to see it, as much as you can anyway, inside the plastic!
Yesterday I took Joseph to the School Beautification Day at Pomeroy. He was a pill getting up in the morning and breakfasted, but he made the commitment to go so I made him follow through. He ended up having a good time. We were there from 8:00 to 11:30. I took care of Janow at the barn, then I dyed fabric and shirts while he and Dave went to a Boy Scout popcorn sale at Wal*Mart.
I have been working on updating my site for October and getting some of the large view photos bigger, but some have a smaller file size for faster loading. I have 4 new things this month.
Thursday I went to the California Dressage Society championship show at the Horse Park In Woodside. It had rained a bit Tuesday night and the footing was still saturated. People were upset. I don't blame them. That big of a show and there should be footing that can take the water. The Horse Park pretends to be that big, the arenas should have been crowned for drainage. What a mess.
Elise rode conservatively and did pretty well in her warm-up test.
Then it rained very heavily Thursday night and all day Friday. I can't imagine the soup. The show winners will probably be the ones who risk their horse's soundness the most to get the big gaits. The show losers will probably be the horses whose owners took the risk and it didn't pay out.
See? Busy here.
