today we have managed some sunshine. I sure could have done with some yesterday at the dog trial.
I still had a fantastic time even though a lot of the day was spent in the rain. The conditions were very hard for the triallers and a lot pulled out, but the stalwart lunatics plodded along. There weren't many passes but the weather made it very difficult. The rings were very water logged and most of the dogs refused to drop and sit. I rugged up really well. I am sure Scott of the Antarctic would have been proud, so I managed to stave off any cold. My feet stayed dry even though I was splashing in 1 inch of water at times. Rain isn't that bad if you can keep your head and feet dry! I wouldn't win any fashion awards but I was warm as toast. It was great to catch up with 'doggy' acquaintances and hear things from the judges perspective as both the judges I stewarded for were very knowledgeable and experienced. I have trialled under both of them in past years.
Crafting that has been getting done is hush, hush so not much that I can show. I did spend last night getting heaps done on my friends swap items.
I needed some stuffing for a project and thought I would put this jar of trimmings to good use. When I was trimming my hexies I just didn't want to throw all the lovely snippets away. This jar has stored the bits perfectly. It originally had peanut butter in it and was a special edition about 25 years ago. Just couldn't throw her away once she was empty.
