Sleeping fox & co.


So here it is my first finished embroidery for the Hoop up! Stitch and Send Swap. I really spent a little too much time on this embroidery, considering I have another 5 embroideries to make.  I've asked myself many times why I thought it was a good idea to do the fox with about 5 different colours and without a decent plan! But here he is.

John sent the pink, blue and purple floss I used for the leafs and at first I wasn't sure what to do with those colours. But now I think it really is an essential part of the design and I love them!  I'm enjoying this swap a lot and am very much looking forward to making my next embroidery. 

I'm having a small break from this blog this coming week, so I hope to see you all back here in a week or so. The Follow the White Bunny Etsy shop will be closed too during that period from tomorrow evening on.


  1. Wow, that is a lot of work. Very nice.

  2. The different colors in the fox's fur are gorgeous :).

    Enjoy your blog and shop break!!

  3. really impressive and beautiful work
    it's amazing how many details it has, I really am in awe of your technique(s) and craft

  4. Nicole, I hope this is going to be a pattern in your shop sometime. I love this design. It is inspiring to me. The circle of it all would work so well in many projects and that fox, especially the way you've got it embroirdered here, is delightful. John is a lucky guy to be getting this!

  5. Thanks all for your sweet comments! I will probably make a pattern based on this embroidery. (maybe not exactly the same) I think it will be march or april at the earliest before it's in my shop though! :)

  6. Love it! I need more time so I can embroider all your wonderful designs!

  7. He's very sweet Nicole! I can relate to not making things simple. But simple wouldn't be fun would it?


I <3 comments, so don't be shy!
