You will not, I am sure, be surprised to know that I finally finished my piece for the exhibition the day before the submission deadline!
Each of the dogs in the book has an accompanying description, so Muffin McLay is like a bundle of hay.
I stitched all of the dogs, apart from Hairy Maclary, on to a cotton backing fabric then joined the sky and fence fabric together to place over the top before adding Hairy Maclary and the fence and tree detail.
I spent a while trying to work out how best to deal with the cut-outs for the embroidery and finally used another New to Me technique.

If you haven't read the books the characters are from the left;
- Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum
- Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay
- Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony
- Bottomley Potts covered in spots
- Hercules Morse as big as a horse
