Two down

My work week doesn't officially start until tomorrow, but I've already managed to complete two of my unfinished projects.  Teresa's bridle has new looooong reins...
and Heather's "orange" Huntseat set now includes a bridle.
Ahhh, it feels good to finish things!
Now I've just got to get them boxed up and ready to mail.  Ha!  Sometimes that's almost the hardest part!


  1. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! It looks fantastic! I can't wait to see the set in person. Thank you so much Jennifer! *hugs*

  2. Stunning tack as always. But please don't call it "orange" call it "London"! That is what colour we call it here in snowy Scotland!! Best leather you could get as it was classed as a natural leather that had not been heavily dyed unlike dark havana or black. All tack was made that colour years and years ago. Lots more choice now. Saying that leather was allowed to mature years ago so had better tallow content and lasted a long time. Sorry rambling on but beautiful tack requires a beautiful name.

  3. I know where you're coming from in your previous post about half finished things [I'm ignoring the ones I have - tee hee!] You've made great progress today and the huntseat set is beautiful. Go you! :D

    I've been lurking for a little while on yer blog. I always look forward to dropping by and seeing what luffly things you've made

    (((hugs))) Emma

  4. Heather--Yay! I'm so glad you like it! It's in the hands of the US Postal Service now so you should have it by the end of the week.

    Janice--You're right, of course. If that was a real saddle it's official color would be called London or more likely Newmarket. In our email correspondence, however, Heather has referred to her real life saddle as "orange" so... This sort of became the "Orange saddle order" in my mind! It's certainly true that darker dyes cover a lot of flaws--both in real and model saddles!

    Emma--Thanks for the kind words. I really do appreciate them, and if you're the Emma I'm thinking of, then I should say I've been lurking on your blog for a while, too!

  5. ooh...very lovely job on the "orange" saddle. (Newmarket/London is my least fave leather color.)

    And thank you for the loooong reins ;)

  6. Loving those beads on the Western bridle, Jennifer! What are there?

  7. I never did put tack on Bangles. She sure looks good in it! Everything is gorgeous as usual!! I even like the!

  8. Teresa--You are very welcome!

    Danielle--I bought the beads at Michaels. They are awesome--detailed, perfectly in scale and with a big enough hole to slide over leather lace.

    Vicky--I just love Bangles. She has worn every one of the unfinished tack sets on my desk except for the harness. She looks really cute all dressed up!
