A few weeks ago, Karen Heenan wrote to me and asked if I would like some horse fabric. She told me it belonged to her mother and she’s had it a long time and was never able to figure out how to use it. When I saw it, I knew it was my kind of fabric. But like Karen, at first I wasn’t sure how to use it. So I waited. Until yesterday, when all my fussing over it made itself clear and I knew what I wanted to do.
I wanted to bring out the magical, the mystical side of the horses. And I’m sure that our Carriage Ride in Central Park, with Ariel over the weekend, had something to do with me finally figuring it out.
Once it got started, I couldn’t stop until I ran out of the pink material that surrounded each patch of horse fabric. Then I found a piece of teal that worked, at least for one of them.
I have another hunk of horse fabric left, but without the pink, I’m going to have to figure out something else that works. Maybe it will be along the same lines, maybe something different.
I have 10 of these and am selling them for $15 each + shipping. I’m also planning on having some of them to sell at the June Bedlam Farm Open House, something Karen will be a part of too. You can email me here at [email protected], if you think one of these “Horse Potholders” would be happy in your kitchen.
