Hey guys! I hope you all had a nice weekend! I'm going to try riding Dalilah either today or tomorrow, lets hope I don't get bucked or thrown off!

Demon, that hood=YESSSS!!! I can make quilts and some other stuff, but that's pretty flippin sweet!

Drafty, go for it! It sure sounds better than being stuck at that sucky car lot with your d-bag managers.

Maple, love the pics they look like they are having so much fun!

Horselovin, glad you're feeling better!

Kymomo, tell Sunshine I said enough of this S*** and give up that baby!!

Demon - well done! I can manage a pillow case or straight skirt and that's about it. My grandma is a tailor, she has always said sewing anything that has a stretch to it is the worst. I'm wishing now that I'd have wanted to learn as a kid when she wanted to teach me. She made all of our show clothes, prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and did for others. She went to Vogue's dress design & millinery school in the 40s. DD has a measurement appointment with her this weekend to have her first custom showmanship outfit made.

Ha, the manual car thing is funny. My first stick shift experience (aside from the tractors on the farm) was when I was 18 & the day I bought my first stick. I saw a car I liked how it looked, went into the dealership and told them I wanted it, did paperwork and he handed me the keys. Got into it and had a big oh ish moment. I killed that sucker probably 20 times between the dealership & my parents house approximately 4 miles away. Now I miss driving a stick. My last 2 cars have had the pretend stick deal, my Charger had a slap shift and the Focus I have now has a button to push. I don't consider them manual when there isn't a clutch.

Tomorrow is going to be a great day. DH is getting the snip!

MH, you definitely have an opportunity with your grandma! I bet its a THOUSAND times easier to learn when there's someone there to help you!!! And how cool is that, that your grandma is a sewing god?! I bet she could whip up some of those Civil War items I've been drooling over--those things look seriously scary and are seriously expensive premade.

It doesn't help that I have no imagination...how does one go about deciding what pattern/fabric/color goes where?! Especially the hats...those things are crazy.

Look at this stuff: Civil War Victorian Ball Gown Formal Prom Dress Reenactment Clothing 187 L | eBay

And that's on BID...heck some of the finished ones are like 350 buy it now. =/

I need to learn to drive stick but I'd rather not have the DH teach me. Someone would lose their life or at least a limb or two. He's kind of a know it all....

And um...congrats on the snip(?) xD

Lol Fly. I have had some female issues, my pregnancy was really high risk, have cysts on my ovaries and have been on real hormones for bc and they are awful. He decided to have it done so that I can stop taking hormones. I've asked several times about me getting a partial hyst and they won't do it because we only have one child. I think it's garbage that they can dictate what I can & can't do with my body.

I should take time to learn from her Demon. She is amazing. She could whip up that dress in a couple days, fully tailored. I'll see if she has some pics of her when she went to the Vogue school. Then they modeled their own designs, even though she is only 5 ft tall. There is one I adore where she made her own fur shoulder wrap...with the fox head still attached. She also knows how to make and fit wool hats (Derby day anyone?). My favorite show jacket as a teen was made from one of the brocade gowns she made in the 40s. It's beautiful - sparkly silver with purple roses as a pattern but you have to look close to see that it is flowers, I hope that DD can wear it someday. It shines like no other under coliseum lights!

I just read this entire thread, and now I need a nap. LOL

My name is Afton and I celebrated the second anniversary of my 29th birthday in February. Strangely, I was more bummed about turning 25 than 30. I have a son who turned 12 yesterday (where did the time go??). We were both diagnosed with ADHD in the last month, and I have to say, it's one of the best things that ever happened to me. I don't feel quite so crazy anymore!

I grew up around appaloosas. Mom used to raise them, and my job was riding greenies and getting babies ready to sell. I really miss that. Our herd is down to eight, with seven at the house.

Learning never stops

Welcome Afton! No doubt you need a nap after reading the entire thread. I'm guessing that after all that reading you know that we all might be a bit crazy...

Hi, Afton! Welcome to our craziness!! Lol

I'm in the midst of figuring out how to write a business plan. I think I'm going to go crazy before I finish it!

Will catch up on everything I missed in a bit, but for now, here's a pic of Lucas that makes me feel warm inside. I called in to see him before I went to kid 1's baseball game, and he full out galloped to me. Love that, and really needed that too. Thank you bud.
