A Holiday Herd

I know the season is already late, but I have been wanting to make at least one big push for my shop before the Christmas season is fully upon us. With travel and sickness and general busy-ness, I feel way behind where I was last year at this time. But last year, I was traveling for Christmas and so had to close my shop December 1st. We are staying in town this year, so I hope to be able to take orders through at least the first half of December.

So to get you all in a festive mood, I want to show you what I’ve been working on in between bouts of croup and trips to the ER. It’s a new series of horses that I have been having enormous fun designing. I posted my first plaid horse on facebook a few weeks ago, and couldn’t wait to do some more. But after I finished them, I felt like they needed a little something more, like maybe a rider.

I haven’t done a lot with pants for my dolls, but I like the little riding pants on this one. I even figured out how to make boots!

Since they go so well together, I thought I would try something new and sell them together on my shop this Christmas. Here they are on a country outing.

Aren’t they cute? I’m kind of excited about these two.

But here are some solo shots if you would like to purchase them separately.

And here are a few more of the herd by themselves.
One plaid with an auburn mane and tail.

And this rather striking fellow with a lovely gray houndstooth coat.

I am also continuing to sell my red horse. This one was by far my most popular last Christmas, but instead of wool, I decided to try making him out of a lovely cherry red corduroy. I like how it turned out.

Due to the uniqueness of the plaids in these horses, (they are made from wool skirts) they will only be available in twos or threes. So think of them as limited editions, but hopefully with new and different ones to come.

Let me know what you think! (And feel free to share ; )
