He's all hooked ~ or is he? 
In the previous post my comment was something like...."ain't gonna worry about colors because I'm using what I have".  Well now that I've hooked more of the body, that blue ear looks somewhat out of place.  Here is the original.
And here is another photo taken with a calm neutral purple wool on the ear.  And, do believe it does look better and not so much in your face as the blue.
If I switch wool outlining the ear will be better too since the blue was a stiff wool .

Back to the hooking frame.  Happy rainy Sunday from Delaware.




  1. Hi Saundra,
    I meant to comment on the last post so will comment here instead! He is such a sturdy fellow and I love the new way you did his ear!!! Spike is quite the dog!!! This is a fun rug!!!
    Enjoy hooking him!!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. I was examining a close up view as I like to take a good look and i was wondering if it the original was hooked on old burlap sack backing because there seems to be some burlap fibres coming through the front...

    I can't give my advice on the ear but trust you've made the right choice.
    It's raining here in Fredericton N.B.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Spike does not look like a happy!

  4. I too like the purple. Also, I can't believe how much you got done. You are cruising.

  5. It really looks like the original, you are doing a beautiful job with reproducing it and still adding your own touches and color choices.


  6. I Like the change. Your funny little dog is so cute
