Double Trouble!

I enjoyed making the patchwork foxes, but boy - were they tricky to make and took soooo long! To compensate, I designed a smaller, less complicated fox/cub, they look a bit cheeky though!

Patchwork Fox

I've been working on a group of foxes, seven in all, cut out from seven different fabrics. I think this fox style works better with a mix of fabrics because the pattern shapes are easier to see, with the last set I made you can't really see how the shapes fit together so they look like mysterious blobby creatures with protruding noses and tails! Anyway here's one from the set, I'll show you the others another time....

Spring Is In The Air!

Last weekend we visited Great Dixter Gardens in East Sussex, we caught the end of the lovely snowdrops display and walked around the fabulous topiary - check out those peacocks!

I've started planting seeds as you can see above, thought I'd try them in toilet rolls (I knew they'd come in handy for something useful!). Hopefully they'll grow into nasturtiums, my other half's favourite flower - I will keep you posted!

Family of Foxes

Here's my latest offering, a tweedy family of foxes. I'm not sure which name to use for a group of foxes there are quite a few - skulk, cloud, troup, company, leash and earth.........
