Horse Crazy by Jesse Haas includes 2 of Crochet Do Dads Patterns

Two of our patterns were published in 'Horse Crazy! 1,001 Fun Facts, Craft Projects, Games, Activities, and Know-How for Horse Loving Kids'.


Wow 2009 was a horse crazy year! 

When I look back through the photo albums (mainly on facebook), we did a lot that year. Took 7 horses in a major parade that year, dressed the horses up for an Indian Festival, completed a bucket list wish for a couple to ride in on horseback to a friends party to out-do the arrivals of the others, and...

Two of our patterns were published in 'Horse Crazy! 1,001 Fun Facts, Craft Projects, Games, Activities, and Know-How for Horse Loving Kids'. 

Storey Publishing contacted me and asked if they could publish two of my patterns in this book they were putting together along with author Jessie Haas. Never in a million years, did I think I would be asked to contribute in this way. It was very interesting working with the publisher - they critiqued the patterns and ultimately converted them to a more U.S. friendly version, and did amazing drawings for the pages carrying the two patterns.  I was quite impressed when I received my copy of the book.  

I am not sure why it surprised me, a year or two before, I was contacted to be interviewed on web radio station called 'Getting Loopy' -- but that's another story.  

So to get two of our patterns, simply buy this book. If you run a riding school, this is a must-have book, particularly if you also do summer camps.  

You can get the book from Storey Publishing here, and while you're on-line, take the time to visit www.jessiehaas.com and learn more about the author and take a peak at the other books she's written.  

Of course, the saddle pad and halter cover patterns are available here on my site as well. 

Enjoy...
