While I was in Denmark earlier in the month a message with a fun order ticked into my mail box. I usually say I don’t “do” commissions, but then again, I do “do” commissions, but only when my creative freedom is not constrained. Fortunately, this was the case again this time. This was an order for two small figures of about 12 cm. One male and one female, he was to wear black trousers and a red coat, she was to wear a black dress. And I was to crochet a horse too…
I have crochet like something of a lunatic ever since as today was the deadline for completion of the project.
I could have done many different styles of people and horse, but knowing the person who ordered them, I kept the whole thing fairly simple.
I had a really hard time making the horse. I have never been a horse girl, when I was a child, so a bit of research went into getting that neck made somewhat right!
I have just handed over the lot and fortunately they were well received! That is always a gamble when doing commissions, even with pictures of the progress during creation, there are no guarantees that the customer is going to be happy with the finished work, so I’m delighted again this time!
And now, I’ll go back to crocheting wild pink roses, I have a little neck piece in mind for the shop for tomorrow.
