Ok so am I nuts or what

Got a request from a customer to make a bridle for her horse HOLLY
She wanted her horses name on it or something similar so I'm making this -

Just to give you an idea - the pattern has to be HAND DRAWN onto the leather with inkless ballpoint pen ( mustn't scratch it ) and then each stitch has to be marked out one at a time. I then have to very carefully hand stitch the pattern on. It took a whole day just to do the pattern.

I will post some pics of the finished item when it's complete.

The Nutty Saddler strikes again ( either that or I just got so bored with the norm )

That is really lovely! Are you going to die the berries red? I think that would be pretty but maybe the customer wouldn't.

for those of you who are interested I could stitch the berries with red thread but thought it might be a bit much .

Grr... Why do you have to make such pretty things!?! Stop! You're making me go green with envy!

Just kidding of course... not about the envy part unfortunately though...
