Several thousand itty bitty stitches and one of the Charro saddles has stirrups!It's going to get easier, right?

  6. I'm really sorry Jennifer but it doesn't get any easier!
    I made two charro saddles last year and attempted to recreate the pita embroidery. Ask Tiffany if she's got any photos of it!
    My fingers were so sore by the end of it. The way to get through is imagining how great it will end up looking. I'll send you a picture or two of my second one (which has much simpler stitching than Tiff's!), you're welcome to put them on the blog.
