Revisiting Spike

Have accomplished a little more on Spike but he's still not done.  Spent time in the wool room looking at the next pattern for my frame.  Yeah, I know.... should have spent that time working on Spike instead.
For reference, below is a photo of the original antique.  My rendition isn't even close to a mirror image of the antique.  That's okay, as she used different wool or homespun's than me and I'm trying to keep this an uncomplicated project as a sample for the pattern.
Saturday it rained all day, yesterday it rained and the temperature reached a high of 69 degrees.  Rain again today and 3 pm the temps were 44 degrees.  Delaware has 'Forest Gump weather' as you ....."never know what you're gonna get".

Happy Monday.



  1. Cute rug! We unfortunately had 7 inches more snow over the weekend. It snowed every day since Friday. I am so over snow.Janice

  2. 69*? Lucky you. Hopefully our 38* high tomorrow will melt the snow. My new foster hates snow and ice.
    Spike is lookin' good.

  3. I like your lighter background, really looks nice with those shades.
    I am happy when it goes over 40, lol.

  11. Hi Saundra,
    Love Spike's expression!! Your colors are just perfect! Playing in the wool is ALWAYS so important as it just gets those creative juices flowing! Our weather has actually turned a bit cooler here and we even had some rain with more on the way!
