A good weekend

Of course I didn't as much stitching in as I would have liked over the weekend. :-) The place where the agility trial was held was too dark to stitch and I didn't bring my tiny light with me.

Here is my progress on Earth Sampler. I could have finished it last night but I was tired so I just played with my stash for a while which was almost just as fun. I'm doing mine over one on 32 count Purely Primitive from Silkweavers. Just a row and a half to go.
This is where I'm at with my IsaV Grand Marquior. I have to put it down for now because I need to get some stitching done with my Beatrix Potter. The goal is at least something every month and I haven't put a stitch in yet for March. I'll work on that for a couple of days.
I'm not sure what I'll start on next. As I was looking at my stash I of course came across several items that I've had hanging around that are totally kitted up. I think I'll so something that has been around for a while rather than start something newer. I really need to get caught up. I told myself I wouldn't buy new stuff until I did some old stuff and that only lasted until the Nashville releases came out. :-)

Clancy had a good weekend and we ended up with several Qs. His start line stays were uneven on Saturday but on Sunday they were perfect. His weave polls are still an issue so I won't be entering any AKC trials yet. I have to get this worked out before we go back to the big leagues.

I really love them both and have absolutely no idea what you are talking about when it came to what you did this past weekend. It's okay but I do love your stitching which is much more important anyway. Love Patti xxx

Your earth sampler is so pretty! I really must go order this chart! I've been eyeing it all over blogland lately :) Your Grand Marquoir is beautiful. You have a knack for picking beautiful fabrics and fibers...just beautiful!

Wow! I love your Earth Sampler! I love over one work and yours is beautiful! I hope you and Clancy work out your issues so you can go back to the big leagues. I love seeing pictures of your dogs -- they're so cute!

Margie, your pugs are adorable, and I am so glad to read that Clancy had a good weekend. Always room for improvement, so I know you will work on what he needs the most.

Your Earth Sampler is lovely, as is your progress on GM!
