I packed a picnic in a basket for her.
I thought this photo looks like a school picture!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates tomorrow!
I’ve been imagining this fellow for a long while so when I got back to the foxes, he was the first that I wanted to finish up.
He had to wear the lumberjack classic red and black buffalo plaid, of course!
And there is his axe, stored in his backpack.
All his clothing and accessories are removable. He has his hatchet, a pear, and a handkerchief, stowed in the backpack.
It is hard to get inspired to do foxes with outdoor interests (like butterflies, mushroom hunting, foraging, etc) in the winter when the forest in New England is asleep. But, wandering, even in winter, I can imagine.
eta- I have just listed these last 4 foxes into my etsy shop.
I believe he is an Apiologist, based on his lapel wear. I also think he is the Dad of the little guy I posted yesterday.
I know I’ve talked about my connection to fabrics before somewhere, but in case you forgot ;-)
I love using fabrics that hold memories for me. I still have lots of fabric from my mom. I have fabrics that were gifts. I have fabrics that I purchased while traveling. This sweet little girl fox is wearing 2 memories for me- her shawl and a Liberty print dress. The shawl fabric was acquired on my first trip to Minneapolis, recorded here on my blog. Wow, that was a long time ago! I bought the Liberty fabric in San Francisco on my first (and only) visit to Britex. I was spending some quality shopping time with Sonya. And while I was sewing, I was remembering my travels.
Finally, here they are, all together, in the window at Gather Here.
and the other way-
And the groupings-
There are 8 foxes in the window- 7 new ones and one that I had in stock. 4 boys and 4 girls.
