This morning I went to volunteer clearing an marking trails for a public horse riding trail system. Getting out into the fall air to do some good works really motivates me.
Speaking of horses, I got my very first sewing job, which I'm doing for free for a friend of my sister who rides on the Equestrian team. I guess since I'm not getting paid it wouldn't a "job". :-) Anyway... to buy a pack of 3 plain white saddle blankets it costs around $15.00 to buy 1 saddle blanket with ribbon sewn on it cost $15.00. My sister told her friend "I bet my sister can sew a ribbon on it for you" so that is how I got my first job!

|Plain Old Saddle Blanket with $2.00 Ribbon Sewn On. I think it looks just as good as the store bought one... new business opportunity???|
