Crafty Fox #FolksyFriday

Not quite sure why I decided on Foxes for todays Folksy Friday. I was browsing the forums and the new listings when I saw a lovely cushion with a leaping hare on it, quite how I went from that to foxes I`m not sure but I did. So today we have lot`s of foxes for you.
I thought I had stopped being surprised by the amount of listings on any subject I typed in, but on this I was surprised. There were only 5 pages, but there were such a variety of crafts available with foxes on. I think I have managed to get a greatly diverse selection to show you. I hope you like them too.
Yesterday... hmmm... What did I do? Of course! I spent a few hours needle felting. I decided to abandon the computer. As there is always something to do on here with regard to the shops etc I decided switching off was the best way to get something done. Not only something, but a something I really enjoy. I needlefelted two pictures of sunsets. Both based loosely upon pictures I have painted. I think I might make them into hanging decorations with a soft filling. Sort of a piece of art to hang up and move about where you please. Kind of different as the picture will be on both sides, going all the way round and then can be turned for a different view. Just a thought. Or maybe a sewing kit? Not sure yet. As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Foxes once ran wild and free
in countryside as far as the eye can see.
Now though we often live side by side
no longer is open land so wide.
Bit by bit they take it by stealth
just to add to their wealth.
Wildlife is the main loser
with no spokeperson as an accuser.
Where once they lived and ran
is now part of a builders plan.
So often they are thin and weak
unable to find the food they seek.
They hunt now in the urban jungle
a task that they often bungle.
Unable to get into bins
nothing left in rinsed out tins.
Now where do they lay their head
and find a place to make their bed?
They aren`t so wild anymore
as they appear at wondow and door.
Considered nothing but a pest.
The poor fox gets no chance to rest!!

  2. Such beautiful creatures - the one from Designs by Nickie, top right has definitely captured that 'cunning' look they're supposedly known for!
