First I would like to thank Oakendale Farm in Bristol, CT and Fox Crossing in Morris, CT for allowing me to set up and sell saddle pads back in October. Thank you!!
Fox Crossing held their annual Thrills in the Hills fundraiser for Breast Cancer awareness on October 23rd. This is my 4th year participating at this event and being a new member of breast cancer survivors — I was diagnosed a year ago, the day after my attending the 2015 Thrills in the Hills event — I was especially in touch with the cause. 🙂 I am healthy and in remission and able to resume the things I love… one of which is making saddle pads. I donated 2 for the raffle and set up my tables and sold a few saddle pads.
Oakendale Farm had their horse show the following week and Alison graciously allowed me to set up as well. Oakendale is home to our horse, Chloe, and Chloe’s human(s). It was so nice to see some familiar faces and some new ones and, again, sell a few saddle pads. A percentage of sales was donated to the Oakendale Pony Club.
So, to talk about the title of this post…. I have recently noticed that people LOVE paisley! So do I!! (Just look at my socks!). I have been on a hunt to find more paisley fabrics as a result, focusing on color themes that many seem to favor as well. If you are interested in a paisley themed saddle pad and you like these some of these colors, please contact me! I hope you are well!!!!
