Swanley is the third in this commissioned collection of lurchers, and has edged ahead to be my favourite.
I am so enjoying this project - once again, as soon as her ears were sewn on there was the 'ahhh...' moment as she took on the look of a real dog.  It was interesting finding the right combination of yarn to make a shaggy lurcher - this time it was plain white acrylic mixed with white eyelash yarn which then had to be given a trim when the dog was finished.  Despite cutting the 'fur' over a newspaper, I still ended up covered in white fluff.  Definitely worth the effort though.
Swanley will have a red coat to match her collar and has joined her pals waiting for the fourth member of their pack.  It's a Woolpack.....no?  Only me found that funny?
I took this photo last week - it's one tiny lone rose in our front garden that was rimed with frost.  We woke up this morning to find snow on the ground - that wasn't mentioned in the forecast yesterday!
