Patchwork Fox


Last year I stitched a fox and he found a very good home indeed.
I missed him a little, and so decided to stitch another.

The good thing about working from a sketch though is that they always turn out a bit differently....this one looks a little bit cross I think!
I really enjoyed using some of the precious bark cloth scraps I got for Christmas.
I'm going to give my poor machine a rest now though!

    1. I think perhaps I took too long to stitch him, he was very impatient! X

  2. He has a twinkle of some kind in his eye, that's for sure, whether he's cross or just cheeky! xxx

  3. I love your killer fox so much. Your stitched hare that came to our house before Christmas is now hanging on my dinning wall. Very proud to own one of your pieces Mrs B. Your stitchery is just incredible. X

  4. It's so clever how you've used parts of the colouring of the background bark cloth to emphasise the colouring and markings of the fox.

  5. I don't think he looks cross Mrs. B., but he does look like he's up to some mischief, as foxes usually are! Love the colors!

  6. You know why he's cross? Because he knows he has a brother out there he has never met. One day....

    1. When I was stitching him I was thinking of his sibling in his fabulous arty home x
