Saturday... Reds and a Horse Show!

For the RSC Challenge - I got all 17 of the red hexagon flowers basted and hand appliquéd onto the 6.5 inch black background. I just need to cut away the black background from the back of the flower and pick out one of the basting stitches.

I hope to pop into the sewing room shortly and work on something.... just not sure what yet. Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

It has been a long week. Aidan was home sick from school Wed-Fri with flu like symptoms. He was better today and went with us to Emily's horse show. He is resting now in his room. Good thing we have a long weekend so he has a couple more days to fully recover before school on Tuesday.

Horse Show - Emily was at her first horse show today. She did good on Prince.... who really wanted to go fast today. She did showmanship first - led him around the ring, then lined up. Walked a straight line to the judges, stopped. The judge walked around her and the horse. Then a 180 degree turn and stop. Then walk a straight line back to the line up. Somehow she placed 1st!

Then  it was wait a couple of hours watching all the others before she did the riding part of the show with her group. Again... Prince wanted to go fast today. She did 3 groups on the horse and placed 3rd, 4th and finished with a 1st place. Not bad for her first horse show.

She enjoyed herself and these red roses were waiting for her when she got home.

Way to go, Em!! Apparently, you're a natural. Here's hoping Mom got some sewing done and that your brother feels better soon!

Sounds like Emily did really well today - even if Prince did want to go fast! Your red hexie flowers look great on their black backgrounds, too!

That's a fantastic result for her first outing! Congratulations Emily. Your hexie flowers are quite striking against their blac background. I'm nearly finished making my hexies.

Way to go, Emily! Great job! Deb, I love Aiden's quilt (glad he's feeling better, too) and really love the little Hexies on black! Can't wait to see it finished.
