Surfing through Blogland I met Katie and her lovely horses. Katie told me that she makes one horse a day using a pattern from artist Ann Wood. She also told me that I could download the pattern from Ann Woods website. Did I hurry over? Yep!
This is what Ann wrote:
“In 2006 I started making cardboard horses. They were a self imposed assignment, a daily creative task intended to motivate and loosen me up, little experiments, paralysis prevention. My plan was to make a cardboard horse everyday, Monday through Friday until I had 100. I did and exhibited the group at Tinlark in Los Angeles in 2007. I’ve made 3 patterns, two adults and a colt, to share and I hope you make a cardboard horse or two or three or maybe a little family or maybe your own stampede! “
Did I download the pattern? You bet ya!
This is my first. I called him Spot.
I think I am going to make one from a tin can and maybe a felted one and....I can feel an addiction coming on....
