I thought I would post a quick update on our goings on. The weather people are predicting a Nor'easter for tomorrow with up to 12 inches or more of snow. Great. Not. Especially since Thursday Rory and have a dog show. As well as Saturday and Sunday. And these are specialties with lots and lots of other Irish setters so Rory needs to look his best. And be on his best behavior. I know. Not an easy thing for him. Sigh. He tries.
The first photo shows one of the Robins sitting outside my kitchen window early Saturday morning. No, they don't mean spring anymore. More and more the robins winter here on Long Island. But it was still neat to see him there.
Saturday also brought me a package in the mail. My exchange from Michele on HoE too. The most exquisite pin pillow I have ever seen. I only wish my camera could really show you how gorgeous this is. The heart is inset in a satin fabric with a beautiful lace on the back. Isn't it stunning? Michelle's finishing is just perfect! She included a few extras. An adorable ladybug pin, a beaded fob, a small box of chocolate Texas Pecan clusters, a hanging metal Valentine and sparkly hearts for my cell phone. :) I love everything. Thank you so very much Michelle.
On Sunday Rory and I attended a fun match show at a local dog training facility. More practice for us both. He did well and we came home with a couple more ribbons. Since it was close to home I invited my nieces to come and one of them took a short video of us in the ring. It is an absolute hoot. Only one small problem. it is on facebook and I don't know how to download it here. But if you are on facebook with me and want a laugh just click here.
I have finished stitching my two of my exchanges and need to get the second one in the mail. I just need to finish the finishing. I should have time tomorrow if the weatherman is right. Then I have two more to stitch so no stitchy photos from me today.
I'll leave you with one of my tired little boy at the end of our busy weekend. And if you are in Uniondale, NY, over the weekend stop in at the Nassau Coliseum and you can watch me run in circles. Wish us luck.
Until next time..............
Love and stitches
and licks from Rory too
