This is my very first hooking wall hanging from an old photo of my Sheltie, JoJo. I used yarn instead of wool strips because that's what I had and found out it's an acceptable material. I did use the wrong backing which made it more difficult to hook, but it did work. Next time - monk's cloth! I'd change a few things, but overall, I'm pleased with the results. The next one will be a picture of Sarah.
