We have been enjoying watching Alan’s needlefelted poodle being developed each week. Last week he was needlepointing in a way that sounded like a steam train and we all wanted to woo-woo! This week he was working on the body and is getting an interesting look. It’s very effective in contrast to the darker parts. He has had to think hard about this and the face will take time and patience. He actually breeds and shows these dogs so this is a picture of a dog he had. She became a dancing dog and looked beautiful dressed up in her show clothes and loved performing. She was always a bit of a star, apparently, so it all worked out well for her. We look forward to seeing the finished picture but , meanwhile , we are enjoying the journey. It’s a lot of work and stabbing!
