Horse Lot 2011

I didn't know I added so many models to my herd untill I had to take them of the shelves to take these photos. I didn't buy them all, some were price models, gifts or made by myself. Actually, I only bought 9 of them.

 OFs of 2011

CMs of 2011

I seem to have taken a liking in CM stablemates, I only had 2 at the beginning of the year..

Finally got time to post my Sinterklaas photos, I had to work 2 full days and today is my day off.

So, I had my mum as my giftee and she loves the Me to You bears, so that's what I made for her. I hid 2 of her presents in there, the rest went on the pile.

 Rocky always enjoys Sinterklaas, he gets to tear up all of the giftwrappings.

After all the gifts had been unwrapped and we enjoyed the hot coca and cake, we started with the dice game. There was a nice big pile of gifts aswell and we had loads of fun.

I got some really nice things, no models or anything (I didn't ask for them) but I'm really happy with what I got.

What I've been doing this week..

Well, getting ready for Sinterklaas (see here if you don't know what I'm talking about:

We are celebrating Sinterklaas tomorrow, so I had lots of presents to buy, some for my giftee (it's a lot like Secret Santa) and some for the dicegame we're going to play. It involves lots of presents and chairs. :) You could compare it with musical chairs; each person buys some presents which will all go on 1 pile. When someone throws a 1 or 6 they get to take a present from the pile and unwrap it, that present belongs to the chair so when someone throws a 2,3,4 or 5 the persons move but the presents remain under the chairs. When all the presents are unwrapped and you throw a 1 or 6 you get to swap one of your presents with someone elses, and when the alarmclock rings the game is finished and the presents under the chair your're sitting on are yours!

Another thing I did this week was unpacking a new herd member:


And I made myself a new Winter Stablemate jump:

WIP: Spanish SM Set

Something different for me, I've never made a spanish set before but I really like where it is going. I'm running low on leather lace so the bridle is half finished and will remain half finished for a while.

Fog & Lord of the Rings

It's been such a foggy week, all I see when I look out of my window is this:

When a take a few steps forward the rest comes into view:

I had to go out into the paddock to search for my horse

I went to Lord of the Rings in Concert yesterday, it was awesome! I'm a big soundtrack lover and this was one of the best ways to enjoy it.

Liveshow Groningen 2011 - Performance

I went to my last liveshow for this year, it was held on Saturdag in Groningen. My Performance didn't do as well as I had hoped but my models rocked the Mini Performance. The DQC (Dutch Qualification Championships) were also held in Groningen, you need a qualifying card to be able to participate. These cards are given to the overall 3rd, overall reserve and overall champions of all the shows in the Netherlands. So the DQC has just a few classes; OF, mini OF, CM, AR(all of these a separate breed and color class), Perfomance and Mini Performance.

I won the DQC Mini Performance last year and I won it again this year.

After Rain Comes Sunshine..

Well, that's the saying. I've not had the best days, first I was phoned that Nikita wasn't feeling very well. She had colic, luckily this got better after 2 injections from the vet. And this weekend my dad fell down the stairs, he's broken a back vertebra and has a fracture line in his upper arm. Nikita is doing really well and we are riding again and my dad came home from hospital this morning. Besides that, I've got a lot of nice things to look forward to next week, so sunshine after all.

I've also received a mail this morning saying my Riorondo order has been shipped, I really hope it comes in time so I can finish my western set before the liveshow.

Arabian Costume WIP

I don't really remember when I started this costume, but it is finally starting to look like a costume. And ofcourse, I ran out of yellow DMC thread.. Hopefully I can buy some this week and finish it!
