Hi! Thank you so much for your sweetest messages and wishes for my Birthday! I have got some adorable presents and you will see them soon but today Fox is in my Garden Plot …
Dear Friend Kristy from ‘Quiet Play’ was asking pattern testers and I lift my hand right away! I didn’t know what patterns she was making this time but of course I knew that they are going to fantastic. I was so happy to see this cute fox and even more happy when she picked me to make it!
This pattern was perfect! It’s easy and clear. Those little eyes and nose have really tiny pieces but I don’t think they are difficult – just very small. Fortunately I had this ‘garden plot’ fabric. When I picked it, I didn’t have any plans for it, but it was so special that I took it. Here it found the best place. I’m still missing ‘sky’ fabric and even this blue may look sky from a distance, I’m thinking with right quilting it could be a wooden fence. And the field continues behind the fence.
Thank you Kristy for making fantastic patterns and for this cute fox! Kristy’s blog is ‘Quiet Play’ and today like every Friday she is hosting a linky party for Paper Pieced projects – button is also on my sidelist. My letters are also made with Kristy’s patterns. They are available in her Craftsy Store and this sweet Fox is also soon there!
If you like to get early inspiration for garden plot, click HERE! I would like to start digging and fixing the garden! Weather is amazing here – like spring! But as so often – no time for everything, so the garden is the last in the long list. Fortunately there are some flowers …
It doesn’t look anymore Sweet Pea as I have named this scarf. It looks more like that one cabbage which is only for decroration and not to eat (can’t find the name now). You see how many ways you can use this pattern! I hope to finish the pattern next week.
It’s also amazingly quick to crochet. I don’t really work with this, just make perhaps two sections with my morning coffee and then few before felling asleep. And sooner you notice, there is already long piece of lace scarf!
