hello ~

“he’s here…  he’s here!”

those were  the very words i exclaimed as i ran from the pasture into my parent’s house early one morning… after having checked on our paint mare, “spook” who was due to foal any day that spring morning back in 1970.  i was so incredibly excited to find my dream come true ~ that pretty little foal had arrived … at last!  i’d waited what seemed like forever for a horse of my own!  

so, while back in 1970, that sweet little foal was born a “he” and i named him “echo” … this little foal has much the same feel for me!  not a “he” but a “she” and her name is sun blossom!  

“she’s here… she’s here!”

and so i chose a backdrop of a sunrise colored, hand dyed fabric for my sweet baby filly’s arrival… 
and some bobbin quilted daisies … and a bit of silver beads done by machine beading for an extra special glow...

 butterfly kisses on cute little curious soft noses..

and ummm, yes… hot pink “fluorescent” thread in magnifico, as well as razzle dazzle, king tut and masterpiece were all put to fabulous play on this darlin’ ~ all by superior threads, {of course!}

and yes… i’ve spent many hours developing the pattern, too! it will be ready later next week, and i’m offering it at a 20% discount if you pre-order by next friday, april 24th.  {code BLOSSOM20} in my etsy store}

happy dear friday!
i’m so excited!
i pray you enjoy all the blessings of new life, and {more} springtime loves today!  i’m so grateful for mine…
