Rodeo Rose

She features completely removeable clothing: Hat, shirt, bandanna, jodphur style pants, Batwing Chaps, with hand embroidery; she carries a Lariat; she rides her Stick Horse, and she has a "Center Medallion Rose" quilt, that has an embroidered center. The hat also comes with a hatbox, and she has a cloth storage bag. She has re-dressing instructions and a document brochure. Everything is handmade, including the hatbox.
She is weighted for sitting. She looks really cute sitting on the edge of a shelf.
Peony #8 was inspired by all the cowgirls who used to ride the rodeo in the 20's and 30's. See more about them at: http://www.cowgirl.net/, at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, located in Fort Worth, Texas.
She was also inspired by Linda Carter Holman's work. See her work at: http://www.carterholman.com/.
Take Care and Have Fun! Ride-em Cowgirl!!

Fig Tree Patterns Came in the Mail Last Week

My favorite fabric and patterns!
Fig Tree had a special last month, buy three get one free (of their choice). I am so happy! The third one, French Kiss, is one I wanted but didn't order.

Have you ever been to Bell Buckle?

Just for fun - Have you ever been to Bell Buckle, Tennessee? There's a street of shops, mostly antiques, a cafe with live music on the weekends, ice cream - and - MOON PIES! There's an RC and Moon Pie Festival every June.
The scenery surrounding the little town is very beautiful - the quintessential Tennessee landscape of rolling hills. You'll be able to relax and take a deep breath and get away from all the hustle and bustle of life when you take this ride.
