It took me two tries to make a satisfactory padded seat...In truth, this isn't as far along as it looks in the picture. There's a lot of work left to do. Still, any progress is good progress. If I can get this much done today, I can probably do the same tomorrow and then again the day after that... After all, it's only the first of June. There's still plenty of time, right?

I can't believe it's June. More to the point, I'm not ready for it to be June. June means summer and summer vacation and diminished personal time and OMG, I haven't even started my NAN Auction donation set-- how can it possibly be June?!? Ok, Jennifer, don't panic. The kids are in school for one more week. If I work really hard, that might be enough time to get the NAN set done. My friend, Jane Schneider and I are making a "Just Add Horse" mounted police/riot gear set. Jane is dressing the doll, while I am concentrating on the tack. This is a sketch of the type of saddle I want to build.It's basically an All-Purpose English saddle, so this morning I went through my old saddle patterns looking for pieces similar to what I wanted to make. I ended up choosing a dressage saddle seat and an event saddle flap, both of which were modified to work together.
