Ribbons? What to do?



Every now and then I'm in the attic and I pass by the huge Rubbermaid tote with all my horseshow ribbons in it. Years of work and accomplishment are now carefully packed into that big plastic box. Hidden from sight, diminished in memory. Yet whenever I see the box it brings some of those days back.

I have often thought of doing something with them. Those ribbon quilts and pillows are so beautiful. I should save my money. Here's a link to a lady who has an incredible body of work and who I would definitely consider to have a piece made from my awards. Has anyone else ever had one of these made? How pricey was it and was it worth it? Any recommendations? In the meantime, enjoy her site:

What a great idea!

I keep thinking I'll have to join all of my gymkhana ribbons together to have as a throw over a couch when I have my place but something like that done by a professional seems brilliant!

No suggestions except that I think you've got a great idea there and should run with it.
