I hope you all had a good weekend. I have to say mine was busy and productive. I even got a bit of stitching done.
For the moment my stitching on exchanges is finished so I can get back to my regular (okay, kind of regular) rotation. I am currently concentrating on three pieces. BBD's Awake the Dawning Day, LHN's Rose Sampler for the limited edition thread pouch and La-D-Da's Lauren's Voice. I just love the sentiment on this one.
My rotation consists of S-M-T I work on Lauren's Voice, W-T-F it's the BBD piece and Saturday and Sunday daytime is the Rose Sampler. So unless something else yells loudly from my to be stitched basket I might even have a finish by the end of the month.
Sunday was Rory's big day. His first dog show. On Saturday I spent a few hours grooming and bathing him. He actually did pretty good in the bath. I only got a little wet. Okay I did have to change afterwards. Sunday we drove to the place the show was held. So far so good. We walked around and I showed Rory off to some setter people I hadn't seen in years. According to the schedule Rory should be going in the ring at 12:30. Unfortunately that didn't happen. Delays and a judge who decided to change the schedule meant that we stood around waiting until almost 3PM before we went in the ring. By this time Rory was a bit tired from all the new sights and smells. He stacked for the judge very well but then decided he wanted to play rather than gait properly by my side. Now he does this nicely in our Tuesday night handling classes and when I practice at home but........... Oh well, he's just a puppy and it was supposed to be fun.
Oh, he did win his class. First place puppy AND he won Best of Breed. Wooooooo HooooooRory and I and his ribbons
Oh wait. Rory was the ONLY Irish setter entered.
Too tired to even play with the ribbons.
I don't care we still came home with the ribbons. As time goes on I hope we are able to add to the collection.
Stitching and a dog show, yup, I had a pretty good weekend
Until next time..................................
Love and stitches
and licks from Rory too
