A small happy dance

I decided to just go ahead and put Santa to bed so to speak... I finished him up yesterday on the train ride home. He is a Mosey N' Me design from the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Christmas issue with the recommended DMC colors.

Here is my progress on my Prairie Schooler piece, Winter - I should be finished with this tomorrow afternoon. I received my fabric cuts from Drema yesterday so I'll be able to start right away on my next ornament. It will most likely be the Brittercup - Britty Christmas Puppy. I plan to make two of them, one for my sister and one for my agility coach. I also made a little more progress on Part 2 of Marquior. I should have a progress photo tomorrow after tonight's stitching. I didn't get as much done last night as I had hoped because I had to play with my linen cuts and I received my monthly fabric from Silkweavers. I received two beautiful fabrics but there seems to be a problem with the instructions I sent them. They keep sending me 28 count which I hardly ever use instead of the 32 count I requested. I'll give them a call today to straighten it up.

Last night was agility with Molly. I'm starting to see real progress with her. The off courses are almost a thing of the past and next week I will no longer depend on a tab to control her. I still think our next agility trial in ten days won't be a spectacular performance, but we won't stink up the arena either. Yeah!

Your santa looks great! Sure looks a lot like Frank (Trading spaces-but of course it would!)! Your PS Winter piece looks very seasonal. You're making great progress! Congrats!
