Twin peeks

Kim's Pebbles scale dressage set is very nearly finished.
All the major pieces are complete.  There's just a little bit of nit-picky adjustments left to do.
My favorite part of the set is this teeny tiny girth.  Although it measures less than two inches from end to end, it still features my usual elastic and leather construction. 
It's a bit fiddly threading the billets through the holes, but Kim is the queen of mini scale performance showing.  If I can get this on the model, I know she can.
I don't generally like working this small, but Kim--like Tiffany--has a way of persuading me to step outside my comfort zone.  In exchange for the dressage tack, I'm getting a dressage arena.  
Ok, to be precise, I'm getting part of a dressage arena.  Here's a sneak peak.
Yay!  It already looks wonderful.  I can't wait to see how it will look once it's covered in beautiful Haymond flowers.  Thanks for trading, Kim.  I hope you are as pleased as I am.
