uploaded some videos

I made it to the left margin on Garden Flowers - now you can see just how small of a piece this is. :-) Way to small to be taking me two plus weeks. LOL! I didn't go to agility last night (still feeling sick) and I almost picked it up. Instead I wanted to work on my hooking and I almost finished my little heart. Photo of that tomorrow for sure.

I posted four videos of me and Clancy from the weekend's agility trial. Here is the link to my channel: The videos are dated from last weekend. WARNING! Watch at your own risk - videos include lots of bad handling. :-) Since most of you don't know the difference between good handling an bad handling I'll fill you in. It's good handling when the dog just seems to know where to go next, there are no dog under your feet and dog way behind you and things like that. Good handling is very smooth and it looks easy. :-) Bad handling is very jerky and out of sync with the dog.

Clancy is so sweet. He looked like he was having a good time.

I loved watching the videos. Don't be too hard on yourself. Everyone has bad days. I'm sure you will do better the next time. The most important thing is that Clancy had fun. It sure looks like he did.

Your stitching looks fabulous. Can't wait to see more.

Everyone has good days and bad - you just had a bad one. You'll do much better next trial.

Happy STitching!

Everyone has bad days Margie! I did enjoy watching the videos. You're making good progress on your piece even though you haven't been feeling well. Do hope that you're feeling better soon.

Hope you're feeling better soon. The videos are always so much fun to watch. And your xs piece -- I'm loving it!

Great cross stitching and, if you ask me, great agility trials. Yeah, I'm no expert but they all looked good to me - minor errors maybe but great fun to watch. Thanks for posting them for us to enjoy! Feel better, soon.

Even after your description of what bad dog handling is, it looked good to me.
Hope you are feeling better.
Pug hugs :)

Well, Clancy looked like he was having loads of fun. As to how the 'handling' went, don't be too hard on yourself - practice makes perfect (not that I know anything about these things!)

Lovely stitching!
