King of the Terriers

As the Airedale is the largest of the terriers group they are known as The King of the Terriers. So last year, at a doggy fun day, I made a King outfit for Archie to enter the fancy dress competition. I bought some crushed velvet from my local fabric shop to make his cape and raided my card making supplies for the crown. He was lucky enough to win first prize.

I also stitched this King of the Terriers picture from a chart by Stephanie Seabrook Hedgepath. My other half and I attended a framing course a while back and I took this piece and framed it during the course.


  1. Lovely stitched !!! and oooohhhh how sweet is Archie in his King Arthur outfit !!! i reaaly like it !!

    Give him a biggggggggggggg royality hug from me !!!

    Have a nice happy sunny week !! hugs from Ria

  2. Your stitching is wonderful. It sees that you've done it with so much love!
    And Archie is a very tender and pretty dog dressed as a great king!!!!!!!!!
    Realy lovely!!!!!!!!

    thanks for your words about the abandoned dog. I have dogs and cats in the house, so I can not take him too. But I trust that he will soon be a master, ‘cause we are working.

  3. I can see why Archie won first prize, Shirley! He looks quite regal in that cute outfit. You are very creative :) Lovely stitching, too--what a labor of love!

  5. Oh Shirley, Archie is so cute in his King Arthur outfit. You are so talented. I really love the stitched picture and the framing.
