Foxy wall hanging

Friday I received happy post!!!  This happy post had come all the way from Australia for the Scrappy Swap on Flickr, and was bursting at the cardboard seams so I immediately opened it up and I found this little fella:


Isn't he gorgeous!  This wall hanging is a piece of art!  The fox has felt patches on his neck and tail so it is really nice and tactile!  I adore it!  Look at the fabric in the tree - totally perfect!  The quilting is tremendous and I am in awe how Happy Go Lizzie managed to do the stitching so perfectly around the fox and birds.  Those birds have the best legs! 


I was well 'stalked' because I had this type of bird and tree in my inspiration mosaic!!  Gina even sent BUTTONS and most of you already know that yes, I do like a button or two!!!   She sent a local item too -some chocolate biscuit things called TimTam's.  I accidentally ate two of these before I got home to take a photo of everything!!  They are pretty yummy!


And because it was a scrap swap, she sent me this pile of scrappy goodness with a special pile of DS fabrics too - so awesome!!  I mean - Denise!?  Wow I am a lucky girl!  I will be using every single one of the scraps she sent (and she sent more than a FQ - shhh - don't tell swap mama)!


What a great way to end the week!!  I am one happy camper and have now ironed my foxy wall hanging and am looking for a stick to put in it to hang it asap.  Thank you Happy Go Lizzie - you sent me the most wonderful parcel!  You truly spoiled me x

I don't know which I love more, the fox or those birds--cranes I would guess, with their legs behind them like that. Lucky lady to receive such a sweet hanging from Gina-Happy Go Lizzy! She really knows her way around those low volumes too :)

Oh wow that is a brilliant wall hanging. It is full of little details and quilting. DS too - you lucked out Mrs. Di x

You are one lucky lady! I work with some Aussies, they really don't like you comparing their beloved TimTams to a similar biscuit sold in the UK called a penguin. We have had many lunchtime "discussions" about it lol.

Hey there! This fox is adorable. :D


Also - I finally got my post-Thanksgiving act together and drew from the basket. Your name came up for the pioneer pattern. - If you send me your address, I'll get that mailed off to you. :D

Hello Amy
Subscribed to your blog and found this . So nice to read everything . I can believe that the bag was ripping ! When are they going to design decent postal bags that don't weigh too much ? Anyway , so happy that you had fun receiving your parcel . Have a look at the book Scandinavian Stitches , it's the book that I got the inspiration from and the little fox template . He's so cute , I want to put him on everything now . The birds were drawn by one of her children like that . Adorable . There's a Flickr group as well . I love Tim Tams too but they are not slimming ! Thanks for all your kind words . I love my ticker tape wall hanging you made for me too .
