Not much progress

As you can see, there is not much progress from my last report on this piece (Two Blue Houses by LHN). I'm not quick sure I like the two blues I picked out. It's charted for DMC but I really love the look of overdyed so I converted it mostly with thread I had on hand. I'm sure it will end up ok once I get more stitched. And it's not like I would rip out colors on such a small piece. If it were a larger, more important piece I would of course.

I'm on my mini vacation and the plan is to get as much stitching in today as I can. I would really like to make a dent with TBH so I can move onto something from the Nashville releases.

Please wish Clancy and me good luck! We have a three day agility trial starting tomorrow. My goals are modest, one Q in Novice Standard and during one of our Open Jumpers run, a perfect set of weave poles. But I'm secretly hoping for his Novice Standard title. :-) We only need two Q and it's ours and we will have three tries to get it. But I think the reality will be just one or none. We have not been able to practice at all in the backyard for at least six weeks now because of the snow cover and Clancy is the sort of dog who needs that extra practice. At this point, I'm not even sure he will remember how to do the broad jump because we never to that in class and his has been under snow for weeks and weeks and that has given us a ton of trouble in the past.
