If you haven't had a chance to see one of Jane's dolls in person, let me assure you that they are absolutely top notch. You can view her (in progress) website here: http://www.glynhaven.com/index.phpThe big challenge for me now is to not just finish that saddle, but to make it equal in quality to Jane's part of the package. No small task, but I think I'm ready to stop procrastinating and get back to work!

I am a slacker
I hate to admit this, but I haven't worked on my NAN set in almost a week. I got stuck on the cantle/panel join and needed to take a break to think. Thinking always helps, and the good news is that I've seen the error of my ways. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to redo the back of the cantle. I hate taking things apart so I've been procrastinating. I've done a ton of work on my Fly By Wire resin and I've almost finished a dressage saddle, but the poor NAN saddle has been gathering dust on the horse shelf.I wasn't feeling particularly guilty about this until my donation partner, Jane Schneider, posted these pictures to her Yahoo group last night. Not only has she finished the rider doll, but she got ambitious and added a second doll to our endurance package. Now I feel like a total slacker!Here is Jane's description of the dolls: For my doll we both thought NAN colors would be fun so the girl endurance rider sports a purple and white rugby shirt and black riding tights with a purple stripe. Her brown hair is caught back and turned in on itself with the ends left loose. She has purple and black half chaps and a white custom helmet. She also wears a digital watch so she can keep track of her horse's heartbeat in the field if necessary. She comes with a companion doll who can be a handler,an assistant or a vet in a long lab coat. He wears a burgundy and white rugby shirt with jeans and boots,an ID lanyard and another digital watch.
