We have so much to be thankful for! We all know that, but I’m glad to be reminded of it and celebrate it every Nov. Especially thankful this year that we live in a country that votes for our leaders instead of having revolutions and riots. Don’t waste the opportunity!
We have some new projects I thought you might like to view, one in progress and one finished. I am also going to try to tempt you with a few Christmas gift ideas. Most of us are at least starting to think about it.
God bless you all,
(Anyone remember that show? We are old!)
Chess Set in Progress
Andy is working on a new chess set called, “Ancient Game”, The carved alabaster pieces are finished and he just needs to make the board table. The red and the grey alabaster are native to our area. We chose the gray alabaster to represent the native Americans.
The red alabaster seemed appropriate for the animal kingdom. A lot of the stones and soil in our area is red so the red would be a natural camouflage for our animals. Chess is a game of strategy and stealth, something that both the hunter and the hunted would need. With our chess pieces the hunter can become the hunted. It is only through their cunning that they have an advantage.

Andy and Skyhorse Saddles have collaborated on their second saddle. Andy, of course, did all of the wood and inlays. Loren and Lisa are world class saddle-makers and you can see more of their work at Skyhorse.com. The leather is all hand-carved. If you missed their first collaboration, you can find pictures on our blog which you can find a connection to on our web site page.
We have many more smaller and larger gifts for Christmas. Here are a couple for you to check out.
