We had such a lovely pre-Christmas lunch with friends who own horses for joy, I just sent this postcard in the mail today.
Thanking them not only for a delicious lunch, great hospitality, but also a donation from their horse’s mane and tail. Back home this hair was laundered with great care, and it looked so lovely and pure white – in fact, good enough to feature on my postcard to them.
Quite a stroke of luck it was – watching the horse being brushed for a ride, when thoughts stirred within me …. of creating an art-quilt which incorporates horses hair. I say had to blurt out – may I have that? I did get a few quizzical looks.
This postcard was the ideal way to trial my idea – and I must say, the result is very pleasing. It was a great way too, to express our thanks to our delightful hosts. They are one of a kind too.
