I am a retired teacher, and former day care director. I am a grandmother. I live on a small farm, surrounded by larger farms with hay fields, cows, horses, dogs, cats, deer, wild turkey etc. I keep chickens. Mine are all different colors and breeds. I love them, they are great entertainment. My mother taught me to sew when I was 10. It is a life long pleasure.
I have made stick horses for years. First I made them for my young son and the kids of friends. Then I made them to help my class raise money, then my son's class asked for them. Then came the Stick Horse Rodeo and I added the bulls. Along came grand kids and more fundraisers, and more but different animals joined my barnyard.
Don't you just love to see baby animals at play? Our college has a farm and in the spring as I drive by I get to enjoy watching the mommies and their young ones grazing and playing. Also in Texas, at Rodeos and Stock Shows we often have Mutton Bustin' events, where young kids try to ride on a sheep for a few seconds. So naturally I had to add them to my Rodeo/Farm Series of patterns.
