Animal trophy Head Patterns - Mr. Fox.

This is the latest animal trophy head pattern to be added to the website - we now have the Sheep, Goat and Fox available as digital downloads for 5.00 a pattern.  This is definitely the way to go with patterns and I shall be doing them all as downloads from now on.

I have made Mr.Fox from bits of Harris Tweeds and cream wool felt.  I'm not a good photographer and he looks much more fun face to face!!

If you are coming to K&S - I shall have the 4 I have done so far as patterns and a few kits.

Last Sunday I went to a new community market in Haringay, in Falkland Rd on the ladder.  I had a stall for knitwear and all the left over bits and pieces I have from a life time of making textiles.  It was great fun to do - I love doing markets - lots of lovely food there as well as collectables and crafts.

Sadly I was unable to go today but hope to go when ever i don't have other commitments.

Pre- Knit and Stitch shows -
I'm desperately trying to get some new patterns and hopefully some kits finished. I have been working all week on animal trophy heads and really want to get doing some 'whole' animals now.  I shan't have time for that before the Ally Pally show.  Yesterday I finished some goats and almost finished some foxes now.  All the others - that is sheep, hares and some dogs are resting in a box ready to go.
If I have time I'm hoping to get a couple of dolls made from the patterns in the books but with a completely different look, to show what you can do with all those 6 patterns.  One only needs so many variations of template for a head, a body, 2 legs and 2 arms then you can do anything with them.  We'll see what I manage to get done.
Also finishing off my accounts to go to the accountant for the end of the month - how I find them so tedious!
