Just horsin' around

I've been on a crazy horse-sewing mission the past few days. Add to that a bizarre allergic reaction to an herbal supplement to make things more interesting. I had to stay dosed up on benadryl because as soon as it started wearing off I could feel my throat swell as the itching returned. I don't know about you, but benadryl makes me feel like a zombie.

But, nothing like a mailing deadline to get me going, despite the comatose state. I mailed the box off this evening. YAY!

Here's the rest of the horses/unicorns that were mailed along with the horses shown above.

I was out tonight on my final mission to find winter (but not Christmas) fabric for a winter quilt square swap (on the sewing forum at Amitymama). It has been WAY more difficult that I thought it would be to find some good non-Christmassy winter fabric. I didn't want to get snowflake print fabric because that would have been too easy. I am pretty sure a gleeful squeal was heard by all when I found this cutie fabric (edited to add it's Alexander Henry's "Our Town"). I bought a bit extra so I could avoid the carolers. Without them it's all winter.

And I'm off to toss it in the washer. I will actually be on time! The mailing deadline for the swap is tomorrow! :)

well, I'll risk being a stash enabler and tell ya that it came from Hancock's. They had some coordinating prints too.

Sorry to hear that you're having allergy problems. I swear by Loratadine (generic Claritin). The horses are wonderful and I love the fabric!
