I finished up the oldest item in my stash on Saturday evening. The copyright on the design is 1990 and I know I bought it that year. So it only took me 19 years to get to her. :-) I love it! I'm so happy on how it turned out. And I don't really think it took me all that long. I've been buying and trading a ton more SB stash - I'll post a photo as soon as it all comes in.
I didn't remember to put Autumn Bouquet in my agility bag but on Sunday I found that I had put the supplies for the Strawberry Emory from a couple of Loose Feathers ago in my bag. So I worked on that on Sunday. I was about 2/3rds complete when I realized I was not going to have enough CC Wild Berries to complete it. And sure enough I ran out with only six or so lines to go. I'll order more tomorrow from Drema but it will never match. Oh well, I'm not going to restitch it so I'll just have to live with it.
I did have a little time to work on my current house from HoHRH last night but I won't be done with it by the end of the evening. I have the entire house to complete and I haven't even started it yet. I have Friday off work and with Monday being a holiday I should be able to get caught up nicely.
As for the rest of the weekend, Clancy was very uneven but he ended in a huge high note. I did pull him off the course for both of his Jumpers run do to a lack of weaves. I wanted to pull him off his Standard run on Saturday when he didn't do his weaves but the little bugger ran away from me in the direction of the next jump so we ended up finishing the course. Our highlight of the weekend was his Standard course on Sunday. We almost Q'd! And we received a score for the first time in months and months. I asked him to redo his weaves until he completed them and he did. But we had three tries and that was one try too many and we were scored two refusals and you can only have one refusal at the Open level. We had quite the party at the finished line and left the weekend on a super high note. My agility instructor saw our run and said we did great. :-) That is like getting a gold medal. Our next trial is on September 12th so I'm hoping a few more puzzle pieces fall into place.
I have decided to bring out Aoife at a one day Novice only trial on October 11th. I sent in her AKC registration form in today and her official AKC name is: Aoife Meadhbh MacKenna. Meadhbh is the Gaelic spelling of Maeve. :-)
