    Not a quilt, but I like it...horse wreath.

    This is the horse wreath a friend and I made Friday to hang on her door. We have such great feedback that we are going to make a bunch to sell next year! Hope you like it too. We did not have a pattern or directions, just a post on facebook as a guide. I think we did pretty good.

    Even upside down that is adorable! If you are in horse county it will sell fast!

    Just happen to think it might also go as a reindeer! Add some antlers.

    Could you please turn the picture right side up. It is a beautiful idea.

    neigh, it is upside down but is adorable for an equestrian lover.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    That is damn adorable and I bet you could sell them...my youngest daughter would love it she loves all her pets but her horse is in some ways her best friend.

    Great work!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    This is the best wreath I have seen this season! Love love love it. The boughs that you have used strategically give it movement and dimension. What did you make the harness out of ...a belt?

    Mdm. Kelly,

    That is too bloody cool. Thanks for sharing.

    The halter is a 1/2" scrap of faux leather with a tooled leather texture. The medalion on it is a beaded piece my mother made years ago. I knew I would find the perfect use for it someday. This was perfect. BTW- can't reverse the picture not sure why it is reversed for some of you. Appears right side up to me.

    Yes, you did do a good job. I imagine you'll be able to sell quite a few of them.
