Sneak peek for Margaret

This hasn't been a very productive week.  I hurt my right hand over the weekend, and although it's slowly getting better, I still can't work more than an hour at a time.  Despite that, I've been slowly picking away at Margaret's huntseat set.  Today--finally!--it's beginning to look like a saddle.
I still need to stitch on the knee pads, add the billets and stirrup bars, attach the flaps to the seat, afix the front piping, and assemble and attach the panels.  That sounds like a lot, but other than the stitching, most of it goes pretty quickly.  With any luck, this saddle will be ready to go by Monday at the latest!
