Horse Quilt! December 09 2013, 0 Comments

Have you ever fell in love with one of your animals?

Well, one of my daughters loves horses. She loves to train them and give riding lessons…well just about anything, that would deal with horses.

I got to ride this handsome horse, which was on my bucket list, while getting a horse riding lesson from my daughter.

Isn’t he just the most beautiful horse you’ve ever seen?

While looking at her photos the other day, I saw this amazing picture of Tecumseh, yes, I have fallen in love with him too.

I decided to do some creative designing…. I wanted to see, if making a photo of him into a Barn Quilt might be an awesome thing to do.

Well, what do you think?

What pet would you put on your Barn Quilt and what caption would you put under the photo?

Nothing warms the heart like a fire in your Wood Stove, and a beautiful Quilt.

Here is Tina's symbol of both!

Blessings, my friend. May you and your family stay warm this winter.

Yes, this fabulous barn quilt, was a custom order. I had to step out of my box and draw this out on one of my software programs.

Okay…. I tried for 15 or so hours, and didn’t get very far. Until one morning, after letting go of the “I will do this” mentality, I woke up, and my thought was….. hire this to be done, by a tech geek. Wow, what a idea. Who could I call to help me? My #3 son, Ben.

I called him. He said, "Sure mom, I can help you with that!” He was even happier to help me, after I told him it was a paying job.

He came over, and within a much shorter amount time than I could ever spend, he figured it all out.
I did some finishing touches... and voila, I just love how it looks.

Every day is a new learning experience. Some days you learn that you need to ask for help.
Just as quilters sometimes need help, their quilting bee.
Sometimes we too, need to ask for help.

Has there ever been a project or time in your life where you needed to ask for help?

Thanks Son. I’m so proud of our work together. We made a great team.
Love Mom.
