off weekend

Here is Ms. Fred. Not a stitch put in over the weekend. My interest in stitching is starting to wain. I can just feel it. That happens every so few often years to so. I'll do some sort of craft for a while and then move onto something new. I always come back around but the last time I stopped cross stitching it was almost 20 years before it came around again. I have way to much stash for that to happen (I hope).

Clancy and I had a very uneven agility weekend and I think that is my number one reason for getting frustrated - our lack of consistency. One week we are brilliant and the next week we suck. On Saturday Clancy didn't do his weaves and yesterday I was just a bad handler. I sure hope time works this out.

Have a great week!

Bummer on both counts! I was feeling sort of like my stitching enthusiasm was waning too until I picked up my latest project. We'll see what happens after that. lol! And you and Clancy. Sorry you had a bad weekend. It must be frustrating to have inconsistent results. :( Hopefully things will get better.

Sorry to hear about your agility weekend. This weekend, the dude decided to teach Stella to jump. After reading up on it, and expecting it to take a while before, he set up a makeshift jump and took her over it. Took to it like a duck to water, and now we're looking in to buying used equipment and figuring out which things we can make ourselves. Now you can tell she's part border collie!

That's too bad about the agility weekend. I know it must be frustrating especially when it goes back and forth like that.

Ms. Fred is looking wonderful. I hope you don't put her down and that you only take a quick break from stitching.

For someone who's losing interest you sure are working quickly on Ms. Fred!
Take a deep breath and you and Clancy will get back on track again soon.
Pug hugs :)

Sorry to hear about your agility weekend! That can be so so frustrating, I'm sure!! :( Don't give up! With experience comes consistency... well, that's how it goes with horses... I'd be willing to bet it's the same with dogs (crossing my fingers for you!!). :)

Ms. Fred. is looking great! I'm really hoping your stitchy interest doesn't wane! I so enjoy watching your progress on all your projects. Very inspiring!!

Well drats! I'm sorry about the inconsistency with the agility but it will come around, just hang in there. I know sometimes a stitching break is a good thing. Hopefully you won't take too long a break, I love to see what you are working on:)
