Felt Dogs and Finishes

When I saw the pattern for Stanley in an old Cath Kidston catalogue I just had to make one for my collection of doggy memorabilia. I was so pleased with him that I made another for the raffle at our dog club. I changed him a little to make him more like an Airdale Terrier as I think Stanley is a Lakeland which looks the same but smaller. The pattern was available free to download on CK's website the last time I looked if anyone is interested in making their own.
I have also finished my Jan Constantine Love Britannia design this week and will probably make it up into a cushion. We saw a range of her cushions in a department store yesterday and this design was 75 GB pounds! so I have saved quite a lot of money by doing-it-myself.

Here are two more finishes. The first is Stitcher's Showcase 2010 Stitch Along, Bouquet for Cheryl which I stitched in Caron Wildflowers 'Night Sky' variegated thread on blue linen and Stitcher's Showcase Spring Exchange, 'Spring Daffodils' which is now with its new owner in the U.S.


  1. Wonderful projects, as always.

  2. Wowww the dog is so nice and cute !!! great job !!! love ..Ria.....

  3. I saw a dog that looked just like your Archie in the back of a truck yesterday, Shirley, and thought of you. I'd never seen one in real life before--they are quite big!

    Perhaps you should make another Britannia pillow and sell it to finance your crafts :) It is lovely as are all of your other projects!

  4. What a cute litte dog. You have been busy stitching. They are all gorgeous. I haven't touched my Bouquet for Cheryl for 2 months.
