At Home in the Garden #4

Dog Block

The dog block turned out well.  It is all glued down here.  It took a while to get the leaves on just right and the right curve to the branches.  I have decided to add a bead to his head for an eye.  I love how wool will stretch and move with out problems.  I cut the branches on the grain and they curved just right for me.  I like how well wool will behave and generally do what I want.  You have to be careful though that you don't make your branches too thin, they will come apart if there isn't enough to hold it together.  The stitching is very little on those little branches.
