A pug pillow palace

I could not resist taking this photo of the pugs last night. They managed to work the pillows and quilt on my sofa into a little pug palace. I woke them up to take the picture. Lazy pugs! That's Clancy at the top of the photo and Molly at the bottom.

Here is my finished part 5 of Marquior ABC. I even managed to get some stitching in from part 6. Everything from the right of the small F is part 6. Yeah!I'll work on this in the evenings for the rest of the week to try to get ahead of things. I've been worried that I've been balancing the bits of red in the piece so it's not too over whelming. I think so far it's working ok. This piece is getting so large it's hard to take a nice indoor photo. Once the weather clears up and I can take a photo outside, I will post it.
I'm almost finished with part 4 of My Treasured Workstation - I'll take a finished photo tomorrow.

I want to start the Drawn Threads Sampler of Stitches for my train project tomorrow. However, once I took a closer look at the Vikki Clayton silks I ordered last night, I have decided to go with NPIs instead. The colors I purchased just didn't seem right for whatever reason. So I'll order the NPIs today and I'll have to figure out something else to start. I've got a couple of small pieces in my pile so I'll pull one of those out tonight since I'll need something for tomorrow on the way home. Making good progress on my list! :-)

Tonight is agility with Molly and it's our last class before the Smack Dab agility trial this coming weekend. We will have two runs on Saturday and two on Sunday - our first full weekend. I'm so bummed my agility buddy won't be there with her pug - they did not make the draw. It will be a long day. But we have very simple goals, one, to have fun, two, to have a good start line stay, three, only three or less off courses and four, a good teeter! Molly has been struggling with her teeter the last couple of weeks, she has been stopping in the middle before it drops and then standing still on the board. It's not much of a problem in class where I can use a tasty treat to get her to move, but in a trial no treats are allowed.

It's a 'pug pile' *s* I love when Harper digs up a little nest of pillows and quilts. It's so funny to watch her arrange it just so.

LOVE the pugs! How cute! Our yorkies sleep on top of each other so you can't tell where one starts and the other ends! : )

Your pugs are too adorable! Ana does that when the comforter is folded at the foot of the bed. She sort of snuggles in there and makes herself into a sandwich same thing with her beds :-)
