Finished Foxes

I've finally managed to make a few sleeping foxes and one of them has already made a friend!
I've put a couple on etsy and will add others later.

Hooray For Henley!

We visited Henley this weekend on the way to sunny Swindon. I bought this new addition for my sewing and craft book collection from a great second hand book shop. The other half bought me the gorgeous little plate that is next to the book.

Gotta Hand It To her!

Barbara bought me this fantastic sewing book. We were a bit horrified though when we had a closer look at the model's hand and noticed her scissors finger - ahhhhhgg!!! No wonder she looks surprised!

Follow that Fox!

I have been working on another fox design. This time I wanted to make a sleepy fox that could tuck his tired head under its tail when necessary. It has taken a few attempts as usual ( check out the comical duck blob on the left!). I'm nearly there, the top photo is getting near to how I'd like it to look. Big thanks to Sarah for finding and washing the lovely jumbo corduroy that I'm using to create sleeping fox.

What a waist!

I quite like this display of jeans that we found in a second hand shop in Notts.

Hot hot hot stuff

Looks like hot pants are still in fashion up in ye olde Nottingham. Found these great labelled up shorts in a great place called Vintage Warehouse. I didn't buy them but got some other great bits and pieces for re - making.

August Bank Holiday Finds

No new work to show as yet, have been busy at Ryantown HQ. We had a day trip down to the coast a while back on the way there we popped in to a car boot sale, I found this great jigsaw puzzle that me and the other half are working on at the minute, this little plate and a roll of Norwegian trimming (will add trimming picture later). We had the girls and their boyfriends in tow - check out Maria and Gus's pebble collection gathered from the beach at Bexhill.
