A very clever softie in a very silly post!

This morning as I sat at my table sewing my new top, my eye was caught by a tiny movement in the corner of my workroom ….

Who could it be?  No, not the French hens .. nor the lovebirds …  But wait – I see –  what is my little fox in a frock doing?  Let’s look a little closer ….

She’s taught herself to embroider.  What a clever fox!  What beautiful neat work!

Especially as she only has felt paws!  Well done Miss Fox.  Her vintage bluebird pattern is from an old pattern sheet with half a dozen different bluebird designs and I’ll include it in the May magazine as well as the pattern for Miss Fox.

    I’m so impressed! I didn’t think she could possibly be more adorable than when first introduced, but the embroidery hoop has certainly added an amazing personality! She is wonderful, and I adore her! Can’t wait to make my own “Miss Fox”.

  2. Looks like Frieda has been busy. 🙂

  3. Like this little bluebird. You are so talented.

  4. Sew sweet!

  5. I love your sweet little corner cupboard with the roses ! Are they decoupaged, or have you painted them ? I thought nothing could top your lovely spice village – but I’ve fallen for this now as well ! Perhaps we could swap homes, although I do have to warn you that mine comes with six dogs with definite views on tidiness, and how it is completely irrelevant to happiness !

    • Hi Linda, thanks so much – they are decoupaged, though not by me(!) Thank you for the offer to swap – I wonder if pound for pound your canine saboteurs outweigh mine!! Ben is around 160 lbs whilst Daisy is a much smaller 110 lbs – but altogether that’s quite a lot of dog!!

    How embarrassing that this fox can embroider better than I! She is quite talented as well as lovely!

  7. So sweet Helen, lovely detail and the little sewing hoop is nice touch.

  8. Very nice!
