not much progress


Was I ever tired on the way home from work last night. So I took a nice little nap. :-) So not much progress to report on Autumn Arbor. I did get about an hour of stitching on my block 12 however. I just keep plugging away on my black background. When I get bored with the background over weekend, I'm planning on doing the backstitching. That way when I done with the background, I'll be ready to move onto block 11.

Here is some of the detail on Autumn Arbor - I love the variegated silks from Gloriana. They do fray a bit I think but once you learn to deal with that, all is well. But the color makes it all worth it.

Molly was a star again last night in agility. She really is doing so much better since we started to practice every evening. Almost all of the evening was off-leash. She is really starting to follow my hand commands. If we had an extra month before our trial in September I would have not worries at all. But alas, we don't. But the fun factor will be huge in any case.
