As you can see I haven't been asleep for the last few weeks, even though the weather might definitely be tempting me to hibernation! We are making progress - but oh so slowly. I'm just glad I'm not doing this on an intensive fortnight.
The yellow felt spots definitely did not work, and in the end I just bit the bullet and embroidered onto the silk. As you can see they seem to look OK (forgive the carpet felt on the photos-it goes everywhere but fortunately disappears when covered up).
So the horse is now nearly complete. Just the front hooves to attach and the ears - one of which is to be free standing so a bit more fiddling with tiny shapes! The saddle cloth has trailing for the stripes and there is the cantle to do in white kid leather
