Project Runway- Watch out! Abbey made designed and sewed this skirt herself. Not bad for a 10 year old, eh?!?

My grand niece, Abbey Geaney, came to visit and we had a ball! She learned to sew, and her first project was a Sis boom patchwork pillow. Then she rode Tys and gave him a bath. I must say- he really loves her! It's so nice to have an excuse to play! 
Abbey, we miss you already... come back soon!

Whew! What a whirlwind it has been! Very busy summer sew far (har har!), and it doesn't look to be slowing up. Just finished vending at a lovely show in Bethlehem, CT. where I sold my custom saddle pads. I am also honored to be making one for the Freestyle High points winner, Suzanne Markham, who is so lovely to watch and even lovelier to speak with. This young girl will go all the way! She is #5 in the country in the FEI young horse division. See you in the 2012 Olympics!
Our new camper served as our booth, and if I was smart, I'd be selling them! Everyone loved it! It's called a TAB, has been dubbed a " People Pod", an is very retro in design. We love it!
Gotta get ready for my niece Abbey who will arrive from San Diego on Friday. She's staying for a week and we have LOTS planned. Bronx Zoo, Broadway show, horseback riding, beach... I may even give her her first sewing lesson!
