Our Little Foxy Friend

We have a new friend that has been visiting us. I never have the camera ready to get a good shot of him and he is pretty fast once he spots us. I had to take this from an upstairs window so I was pretty far away.


We are making sure we keep a close watch on little Louise when she goes out side because we are guessing the fox is showing up because it is hungry and probably thirsty with this heat wave and drought going on. He is in our yard a couple times a day. We live across from the woods and the other direction is a street that backs to a farm with a little pond. So he is probably using our yard as a cut through.

I have all of my patterns/stitcheries separated in notebooks by season and I seem to be missing one of my Halloween books. I no longer have the majority of them on the computer so I am a little sad. I am also missing a queen size quilt I had done years ago that needs to be quilted. I am hoping I will find them soon but it does not look good since I have cleaned up my room and they still haven’t surfaced. I am thinking they must be in the same place but I have no idea where that would be.

Anyway, I traced out some Halloween/Fall stitcheries and started on them last night. They are great! I also, with the help of Natalie, have sewn together 10 Elf doll bodies.  I turned them last night and will start stuffing tomorrow when I get some more stuffing. I have an order for 4 of them already so I thought I would get started. It seems to be everyone is wanting a matching boy and girl. They do look awfully cute that way.


I had not started Halloween dolls because I wasn’t sure which ones I was going to do but I think I have an idea now so maybe I will get some stitched up tomorrow also.

Off to rest up for work. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and also finding a little stitching time. Try to stay cool, or I guess warm depending on where you are!!

OOhhh! Lucky duck--a grey fox! I never saw one of those before but I love foxes! I would keep an eye on Louise too--they do eat small animals.. We even have had to worry about hawks here possibly going after Mister Doggie my mom's yorkie but that aside that is a neat gift you get to see one of those elusive critters!

Foxes are pretty to look at ~ but I'm not sure if I would like them in my backyard.
You sure have been busy. I hoping to start Halloween item this coming week.
Happy crafting!

I have lost a few things lately, but they have all turned up eventually in the most unlikely good luck with your quilt. Looking forward to seeing the finished elves.
