IHSW for February

Unfortunately, I knew I wouldn't have much time to stitch this past weekend but I did get a little in on Heart Note Alley. I worked on the row of chained diamonds, finishing it on Saturday between work, grocery shopping and naps.

Sunday kinda went to the dogs .... we spent the day at a USDAA agility trial.  Only my "old man" Stormy and Willow were entered and both ran great.  Out of 4 runs, we got 3 qualifiers.  The non qualifying run had only one error,  Stormy popped out of the weave poles, otherwise it was good.  He held his stay at the start, paid attention to me and hit all his contacts -- what more can I ask?   After all, he's 12.5 years old, still healthy, happy (though he can get a little grumpy at times) and able to play agility.  Willow finished her first USDAA title in Jumpers -- I'm very proud -- and only needs 1 more qualifying run in Standard (you go beagle!).

Remember to enjoy your day --- take a nap and play in the leaves.
