Kip goes to school.

It feels like a long time since I managed to sit down and post here ! Last week was my first week working at The Embroiderer and it went far better than I had thought it would it really helps when you are already familiar with the products your selling lol.
I cant remember if I mentioned that last week I had a dog trainer come to help with Kip ( my fox terrier) I decided to try Bark Busters to get a few bad habits sorted out ,one is that he gets completely over excited when people visit ( its like he is on a pogo stick) and the other is that we can never leave him on his own as we howls!!! so this week has been rather tiring for all of us but we have begun to see real improvement with him which has surprised all of us since it has only been a week since the trainer came ( they use no rewards and no harsh methods) and while he is still a work in progress I think we are on the right track.
I have managed a little stitching this week but I forgot to take a photo I am working on New Beginnings by Abby Lane when it is finished it will be my first shop sample.
Well I better get on I seem to have endless jobs to do since many of them didn't get done this week .
Happy Easter everyone Take care
