Where are my horse show friends? Equus Villa? Five O'clock?
Sarah has been riding since she was four and showing since she was nine. She doesn't show all the time but does compete in several shows each year. She has accumulated quite a collection of ribbons over the past few years but I have always been at a loss as to what to do with them.
Recently, while working on her room it came to me out of the blue. She has a couple of walls in her room that are 'dead walls'. They're in areas where you really can't put furniture and artwork feels awkward. Odd walls and bags of show ribbons, hmmmmm....I decided to hang the ribbons on the dead walls. I bought some black gimp at the local fabric store and stopped by my favorite upholsterer to pick up some tacks.
I measured the ribbons and the wall. I found that most hanging ribbons are about 14" long so I made the lengths of gimp 14" apart. I measured so that a tack would be at each end at at every foot between.
