Hello Mr Fox!


Well, he's finally finished!
He is the largest fox I've stitched so far and he does seem to have a twinkle in his eye!
I think the thing I'm most pleased about is how the lovely soft bark cloth just seems to meld together when you machine scribble over it, and so the colours seem to merge together.
And I am rather partial to a bit of kantha stitch.
I love the way the floppy linen turns into ripples when you stitch over it.
And here's the back, it's like a fox ghost!
You can see the moon clearly on the back, it's much more subtle on the other side.
Well Mr Fox, it's been a pleasure, hope you like your anti- macassar home!

  2. In my mind "Hello Mr Fox" is being said by Leslie Phillips. There is not a single inch of this I don't love.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
