UPDATE: Nancy got to meet Madge, her new pony last night! I could blather about her reaction, but a picture's worth a thousand as they say. And this will give you a much better sense of scale too.



Mission Accomplished. And a rousing success also, too.

Mission accomplished indeed! That's awesome! Hopefully the pony and the memory of that night will help her in her journey to keep off cigarettes!

I understand you on the patterns that require a lot of sewing. I don't like all that crafty stuff very well. Madge is great. Her neck could probably be a bit longer, but her hindquarters are super. Love her mane and tail and the "feathers". Good plan for your friend.

Nancy's reaction made it all worth while!!

A friend of mine suspects that most knitted toy patterns are adapted from sewing patterns, and that's why all the sewing. I did find some (after the fact) that don't (appear to) involve as MUCH sewing, so I'll likely explore those before doing anything like this again unless I have a definite design in mind.

But for all that, the response she got was all that really mattered.
