It is the only excuse I can think of – I sat down to work on the Exquisite Corpse yesterday and broke 6 needles at the sewing machine, one after the other. It got more and more frustrating until it got funny. I finally slowed down enough (maybe) or calmed down enough, or cheered up enough or something that the needles stopped breaking and I could finish the the stitching part.
I can't show you that part, not until it is back with its owner.
Thank you for your kind words regarding the dressage. I have a very wobbly video of Ruby's and my test up on Youtube over here. If it doesn't make you seasick (!) you can see how lovely and round she is!
