Meadow's first dog show (and some stitching too)

I didn't get much stitching done over the weekend because Meadow participated in her very first AKC conformation show on Saturday.  She was the only puppy in the 13" beagle class and looked so young compared to the other adults entered.  Being the only puppy, she won her puppy class!  And better than that, I did not trip over her in the ring.  Well, almost, that is.  When she cut in front of me, I did a little hoppy thing but did not actually trip over her.  Thank God there are no pictures! 

Since she won the 13" puppy class, we got to go onto the puppy hound round to see if she was the best hound puppy at the trial.  Welllll, according to the judge, she wasn't ..... but again, I did not trip over her, not even a bunny hop.  She was too busy sniffing the ground to cut in front of me this time. 

Our next show will be Canfield in a few weeks -- yikes!  What was I thinking entering all 4 days!  What was I thinking entering my baby beagle in conformation at all?   I'm not really ready for this.

Anyway, I didn't get much stitching done over the weekend but did manage to get some in during the week.
This pretty little sampler is a new mystery by Debbie Draper on the Stick Lounge list (formerly the Marquoir Group list).  I just love the motiff in the center -- it's soooo pretty.

I also managed to finished the next part of See the Star.  I'm very happy to have completed the large frogged area.  Because of that nasty frogging, I've fallen behind on this SAL but should be able to catch up now.

Rats!  I forgot to take a pic of Symmetry.  I finished another section on it also but have nothing to post.  Oh well.  Next time.
