Foxy Fowler II

Hello or maybe it's time I said Merry Christmas! 
 Tis mighty dark and stormy here in Wensleydale tonight. The tops of the fells have a dusting of snow...brrr.

Sneaky dog is curled up on the sofa next to me and I'm trying to resist my 3rd mincepie of the day.

 So... Let me introduce you to Foxy Fowler made with love and fluff.

 He's been designed for the lovely Rowena, to remind her of her Nan and a childhood memory of 'Foxy Fowler' a moth eaten fur stole! I'm sure you'd love the story but it's not my tale to tell unfortunately.

 He's not only a felted wool 'painting', I snipped and sewed him into a unique shoulder bag too. Lovely long handles as requested.

 And Autumnal shapes and colours.

Hmm I think he's spotted something interesting...

Maybe it's my Christmas cake, unwrapped for it's final 'feed' before the festivities!

Merry Christmas 
and
I look forward to seeing you all for a look back at 2013.

love Fi x

Merry Christmas Fi. Wow this truly a work of art. Having seen your work in 'real life' I know it will look even better (if that is possible) in the flesh. Jille x

When i saw. Mr Fox, my jaw just hit the floor!! It looks just like a painting. How long did it take you make the felting and bag. This is one lucky new owner of this bag.
Have a lovely Christmas MarmaladeRose.
