It's been over a week since I last posted, but I've been busy with Mr.Fox.
I found a lovely Amigurumi pattern here and put all scrumbling and motifs to one side to make him.

Here he is waiting for the operation to put him all together.

Just finding his feet here, standing on my keyboard, but it didn't take long for him to get about.

At first he hid behind the crochet hooks, just a little shy.

Then he hopped into the cat bed with Mummy Polly, she didn't seem to mind too much.

But he finally settled on Tom's shoulder in the sunshine.
I think he'll be very happy with us.

Yes, I know I'm bonkers, but who


  1. Dear Briony
    How cute is that fox?!! (Obviously crafty too - hiding in the most interesting places - you'll have to keep an eye on him!)
    Here's an appropriate quote on how being a bit mad now and again is a good thing, from Willy Wonka: "A little footling about will stop you going up the spout!"
    Have a good weekend
    Best wishes

  2. you are bonkers, that is why I love you.. sister bonkers under the skin. i love the shoulder pic... this fox is adorable... how long did it take you to make it.

  3. I love Tom's expression in the last photo- just calmly getting on with things with a fox perched on his shoulder. Mummy Polly's face is a bit of a picture too. I know I've said it before, but you are very clever xx
