- Remodel a bathroom
- Let your child get sick
- Paper piece a horse
The Penny Sampler Camp is officially done, and the days till project completion deadline are disappearing quickly. Rachel offers a prize, or merit badge, for completion of the project within a month after class closes, and I still have paper piecing and assembly and a smidge of sketch stitching to finish.
The merit badge is a mystery, but I want it. I’m goal-oriented, and when there’s an incentive to go with a goal, let’s just say I’m unstoppable. It doesn’t matter what it is – it could be the prize at the bottom of the Cracker Jack box – but I want it. (Aside: someone told me those Cracker Jack prizes are even less great now than when I was a kid. Sadness.)
Anyway, I’m distracted. I was working on my sampler, and my sweetheart said, “You should make something for the new bathroom.”
And I saw this Peeking Horse.
And there’s that old phrase, “Excuse me, I need to go see a man about a horse.”
Well, that phrase may get uttered round this house from time to time, so I HAD to make one to hang on the wall over the commode. I’m a little disappointed with my fabric choices – I want slightly more contrast in it the next time I make one. Plus, I made a fabric choice oopsie that I’m calling a blaze on the top of my horse’s head.
Other than that, it’s done. Now I can get back to the merit badge for the moment… and the bathroom remodel and my sick child.
