A Fox Hollow give away


Several years ago my sister's boyfriend at that time delightedly told me, while defending his brand of jumper, that Marks and Spencer were synonymous with good quality. For some reason this comment stuck in my mind and every time I go into a branch of Marks and Spencer I think of him and am sure to take time to stop and admire the fine quality of their double chocolate eclairs, amongst other things. It would seem that I, Florence, have also finally found my own level of synonymity...with the fox! Although unfortunately I think it's limited to my use of and frequent lustings over fox-dotted sewing fabric, rather than my own foxiness. Damn.

When Annie recently took delivery of a skulk of foxes* at the Village Haberdashery, I was delighted that she immediately thought of me. And you. Annie has kindly allowed me to give away this beautiful selection of new fabrics from Monaluna's new Fox Hollow fabric line and she has carefully chosen some Kona solids to go with them too.


Fox hollow includes a recoloured print of the much-loved fox print from the Anika range (I used it on the tiniest size of my Three Bears' Sleeping Bag pattern, which you can see pictured at the end of this post), but other than that the prints are all new and I love the introduction of a more subtly coloured grey fox.


But actually the print that I love most of all in this range includes only a small helping of fox. I am utterly, ridiculously, giddy-chestedly - that's on the inside, near my heart, not some peculiarly jaunty movement on the outside (that feels worth clarifying) - in love with this alphabet print named 'A is for Apple'. I love the way that the woodland animals and foliage spell out the alphabet. Look at the way the letter B is formed from butterfly wings and the M comes from two leaning red mushrooms! I can think of so many uses for this fabric. Not only would it look fantastic in a frame, but I think it would be wonderful to cut out some of the letters and applique them into picture or wall hanging to spell out a child's name.

Anyway, after making a claim as audacious as being synonymous with the fox, I feel compelled to share a small smattering of supporting evidence to defend my synonimity, just in case you have been left thinking: Florence...fox....why?


But I have noted whenever I've mentioned the fox that others seem equally enthused...so here is your chance to add to your own portfolio of fox-themed sewing. To enter, just leave a comment beneath this post telling me what creature you are most like (people saying they're highly fox-like will not gain double entries, so you may speak freely without harming your chances of winning). Animals can be ascribed on the basis of looks, characteristics or behaviour. We often discuss which animal we most embody when assembled around a dinner table with family or friends. My own family members include at times a slow loris, a lion, a Dalmatian, and an otter amongst others. It may be of interest that I am not a fox at all, but a white duck.

On this occasion the foxes must go to a home in Europe or the UK due to quarantine (and postal) issues. Sorry to my lovely internationalers. I'll announce a winner later in the week and Annie will be in charge of posting the fabric bundle to you. As this fabric range is wonderfully unisex, Annie has agreed that she's very happy to swap over the pink solid within the give-away bundle if the winner will be sewing for a boy.

Florence x

* I had to look up on Google what the collective noun for a group of foxes might be. Finding out that it's a 'skulk' very nearly sent me into delight overload. I love the term 'to skulk' and even more so 'skulking'. The appeal of the fox just gets greater and greater.

  1. What beautiful fabrics - all crying out to be made into something suitably lovely :-)

    I think I'm probably most like a horse: bit of a free spirit and it is difficult to gain my trust but once you have it I'm very loyal!

  2. Would be *very* happy with that little bundle. Animal I am most like? Probably a Sloth, I don't need to elaborate, but I do think they have a certain cuteness about them!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I think I am like a cat - I like being stroked but otherwise don't generally like people. Although they are great for eating/drinking with, laughing with etc etc.....and I just love finding a sunny spot to lie in and do nothing!

  4. Oh I would love to be a bear and hibernate all winter... Well, I suppose I'm big and lumbering enough!

    Thanks for the chance to win :o)

  5. I'm probably an orangutan, big, orange ( I'm obsessed with the colour not a David dickenson looky likey) slow moving, probably at the same interlectual level and prone to braking out in song, you hoo hoo, I wants be like you oooooo......

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well, I really like foxes as you can see by my nickname :)
    But I also love butterflies, dragonflies and cats :)
    Thank you for this giveaway! Those fabrics are lovely!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh I loved the foxy fabric the first time round and made lots of things with it, delighted to see it's back again and in very good company! Sadly I'd have to liken myself to a hamster because of my larger than average cheeks! x

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think I would have to be a cat. I always purr when stroked! Love being fed delicious morsels and like to go my own way. I'll always be around to find out if anything new is going on. Thank you for your post. Ann x

    ReplyDelete
  9. Utterly delightful. Not seen this range and it's very appealing!
    I think I'm probably a meerkat - easily distracted by everything going on around me! (Some might say nosey!!!)

  10. I am most like a kangaroo. I love to play volleyball and do a lot of jumping-LOL.

  11. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely bundle .... my husband informs me I am a squirrel, always darting around, busy collecting and storing things and with a love of nuts! Bee x

  12. Maybe a hare - I love a bit of freedom and space - not sure my feet and ears are big enough but could work on it! Juliex

  13. I know it's not a woodland creature (we don't really have them here anyhow so I'm not too familiar with their habits) I think I'm a bower bird. I saw them on YouTube once and that's me, constantly making my nest pretty!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ooh, I'd love to make a foxy patchwork cover for one of my old cushions. My boyfriend says I'm sleepy like a cat because it's impossible to get me out of bed in the morning! I've never left a dead mouse on his doorstep though, just for the record :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I was watching the BBC series Life the other day and there was this bird that has love for colors. The male collects flowers and berries to seduce the female bird. I love colors, I love flowers...so I would like to see myself as a Vogelkop Bowerbird. Google it, really, too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would to be like a weasel, because they're so elegant and discreet, but I think I'm probably more like a very small and rather dishevelled vole.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely bundle. my husband keep on telling me I've got gold fish memory but I don't think I'm a gold fish. I am more like mother hen. other than that I was borned in the year of rooster/chicken, my friends keep on reminding me the advice I gave them during university years are way tooooooooo motherly. whoops...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Definitely a cat at the moment. Too much lying around slothfully

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gorgeous fabric, I'm just itching to make something beautiful with it! I would say I was most like a cat, find me a sunny spot and I'm there all day! Especially with the weather of late. Wonderful giveaway, thank you! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. So cute!

    I'm much like my name, I think the animal I'm most like is definitely a cat! I could definitely be okay with the amount of sleep they get! ...and the cuddles!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It would have to be a little hidey wren.
    Love this fabric it is so beautiful!

    Thankyou for giving us the chance of a win :o)
    Happy week to you. x

  22. I like tigers! I'm not so sure if I'm like them but they're pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank you for this. As a complete cop-out I asked my 12 y o son what animal I should be. He said an owl because I'm knowledgable, bless. I won't mention the 'old looking', and 'beard' that he also said!! Kids!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A cat! I like to lay around in a warm spot looking superior. I also purr when petted. And scratch when annoyed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I would have to be a dog - faithful and loyal!!! Xx

  26. Hello Florence, what marvellous foxy fabric! I have been lurking on your blog for some time & I've been particularly enjoying your recent posts on EPP.

    My husband says I'm like a Tamworth pig: I'm natually quite pinky, I like the cooler northern climes, I'm generally contented & I like to snooze a lot. Though I'd rather be a slinky malinky kind of cat, I can see his point. There are some Tamworths in the city farm near us & I could while away many hours watching them potter about; they're such friendly little souls.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win & enjoy the summer hols! Ros

  27. I think I'm like a duck apparently calmly swimming along but madly paddling underneath!

    I would so love to win this - a new grandchild is due in October and I can think of plenty of uses for nursery items using this foxy fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would love to be a cat as they can sit around in the sun all day, sleep whenever they feel like it and only be sociable when they feel like it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Maybe I'm most like a ♥ chicken...not that I'm scared because my chicken (her name is Nutmeg) is not like that, but she is very curious, loves to eat yogurt, bananas, watermelon and happily walks through our garden daily...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love this range of fabric and would be delighted to get squirrelling away at it.

    I think I am most squirrel like, scattily running from pillar to post with a bigger objective in mind forgetting the smaller details instantly but keeping my mind on the end game and being surprisingly delighted when I reach it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha, I really do love foxies :) See my pinterest : http://pinterest.com/lenkas/foxies/

  32. Lovely fabrics. It would have to be an hedgehog as I enjoy a good nap!

  33. I think I must be like a cat. I search out the sunny spots and lie down in them-all over the house! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I adore these fabrics and could make some yumminess out of them for sure! Animal I am most like? I guess I would say an Owl - I am usually up all night having a hoot! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. How cute! I am a Panda, but as you do not have it here I would say racoon :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. The elephant, no doubt. Once I saw a fox in the Smokey Mountains (Tennessee), beautiful creature!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I loved Philip Pullman's idea, from 'His Dark Materials' trilogy, of your soul having an animal form. Today, mine was a busy bee. Yesterday, it was a lazy toad.

    By the way, I have very much appreciated your guide to applique, which I bought recently. I've experimented with the technique and impressed myself with what I've managed to create.

    By the other way, have you noticed my rather foxy surname?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to win some foxy-loxy goodness. I am probably most like a female border collie - generally happy and pleased with everything, but a bit rule-bound and getting more cantankerous the older I get :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh gee. oh fun. I would say I most think of myself as being a border collie. Kind of energetic and OCD and keeping order of things. Gee, I may change my mind about that. May have to sleep on it :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. At the moment I am definitely rather sloth like on holiday :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was googling that alphabet fabric when trying to make teacher presents - oh we'll, next time! I think I am probably a hamster - very keen on sleeping and storing everything away just in case. Quite round too, for the record ;-) And prone to bite if alarmed ...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks for the giveaway. Becoming a Magpie building my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Really, really cute fabric!

    I have to say frog or toad because they are the cutest things with those big eyes! However, right now I feel more like a marsupial mammal having a 2,5 months baby girl always around me (who would love a foxy quilt to her crib :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would be a duck billed platypus as I think they are the most amazing creatures on the planet!

  45. I am like, my German Sheppard. Loyal and loving to my close ones and a little bit nervous of new situations.

  47. I really don't have a clue, but as a love being in water maybe I'll go for a fish of some sort. Gorgeous fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Unfortunately a couple of people have compared me to scrat the squirrel from ice age! Aparently it's the big eyes and weird erratic movements. I like to think of myself as an elegant and dignified cat!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love this fabric. Thank you so much for the chance to win some!
    Two of my teachers, one PE the other art, likened me to a wild boar. Personally I think I'm more like a headless chicken as I keep forgetting where I'm going and what I'm doing.
    I'd really love to be graceful and elegant but never mind, I'm who I am, be it a wild boar or a chicken.

  50. Florence - the fabric is awesome - love to get Jolly Janome to help me make some pretty things with it.
    I suspect that a Jackdaw and I have lots in common - collecting (stealing?) bright and shiny objects to pretty my place and often quietly surveying the surrounding area and happenings before deciding whether to join in or not.
    Love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Gorgeous fabric.
    I am told I can be a bit of a Rabbit but I strive for more of a Pooh Bear! We do Pooh Bear characters occasionally at our dinner table but maybe we will try wild animals next time.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh I think I might have to be a cat. I do like a comfy warm spot to sit and like to do things how I do them and hate to be kept in when I dont want to be. Yep think that sums me up. I love foxes too and that fabric combo looks so good I would love to win it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a great giveaway! I think I'm most like a dog, you know being loyal and friendly!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. awesome fabrics ! Would love to try them..
    I am a lioness :) my curly hair makes me look like one ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a lovely collection of fabrics!
    Some people say that my eyes are like cats eyes and my husband would say I have the cunning to go with it! (He is a cheeky boy though!) but I think I am more squirrel like - I'm constantly storing things (hiding - losing) as I know they will come in handy one day and then forgetting where they are!! :)

  56. I think I'm quite like a bear, I feel like hibernating in Winter, move slowly, but can take a massive swipe at you if you annoy me too much.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have no idea what animal I am like... but I love that fox fabric so much that I asked my boyfriend for help. He said that he thinks I'm like an owl, because I am wise, I read a lot (and watching too much Winnie the Pooh has led him to believe that owls love to read), I have big eyes, and I like to stay up all night.
    I've loved reading everyone's answers. xx

  58. beautiful fabric, would love to win :) I'm probably a hippo no explanation needed lolol

    ReplyDelete
  59. oh, i love the looks on those pictures, so wonderfully fitting together! if i had to say my favorite animal, nobody would understand... a pig... not a pig in a box for consumption rather a pig in a meadow filled with juicy grass and plenty of bathing opertunity.... i like the fact that as a pig you are alowed.. no demanded to be ugly and muddy and even liking it that way! i love animals in general, horses for their wisdom [ have you ever looked in those beautifull wise eyes?] cows for their rasp toungh when you gave a kalf your hand to suck on... cats for their willingness to share their peacefullness... dogs for their unconditional love... birds for their songs... do i need to go on? but if i had to choose it would be a pig... let me retreat to my mudpuddle and shut up for a while....

    ReplyDelete
  60. Gorgeous ......... I think I would have to class myself as a *worker ant* ..... I am never still and always rushing hither and thither !

    ReplyDelete
  61. Somewhere between Sher Khan and Thumper I'm told so.... I am part tiger, part bunny.

    ReplyDelete
  62. What gorgeous fabric! I've a million and one ideas for the alphabet print. I'm most definitely a butterfly. I start so many projects and then flit from one to another... a little bit of quilting here, some dressmaking there... they all get finished, but never one at a time!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh lordy I too go mad for anything foxy-like fabric-wise. Much as I love foxes I think I'm more of a cat - I would happily lie in bed all day and be brought delicious morsels and have my back scratched and be aloof with stupid people. I draw the line at licking my bottom though. That is not acceptable.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Maybe I am an owl as I like to think of myself as clever and I am good at sleeping during the day. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway of such cute fabric.

  65. Gorgeous fabrics :) The solids are just perfect for them!
    I would say I am like a cat or rather I want to be. I like to curl up with a blanket and I love to sleep and could snooze all day! I have a toddler though, so not much chance of that anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi What a great give away : ) I'm most like a chicken always scratchin at this or that but not often achieving a great deal due to my scatty brain nature lol. Alison at habbycraft

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh that's a truly lovely bundle!
    As for what creature I most resemble, my sister would argue that I am most like a horse - as I have long hair and she says I have big teeth! I maintain that it is her who has small teeth ;-)
    When I was at school my friends used to call me hamster (because of my s-t-r-e-t-c-h-y cheeks!) or bunny (from the Duracell advert) if I was being particularly overactive.

    As for me, I think that I am probably most like a squirrel - I love to hoard things (like fabric, buttons and books) and I'd dearly love to be able to hibernate all winter long and wake up when the spring sunshine arrived!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'd say I'm most like an Owl. I'm very partial to night time activities and I like to think I'm fairly wise! Although unfortunately my head doesn't turn a 360 degree angle which would come in bloody handy for keeping tabs on my kids!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm a cat... Except maybe not so elegant ;) The bundle is really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Probably a magpie here - love collecting things, and love sparkle! I also love this fabric - to cute!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ha! A sloth.... Although hopefully I smell a bit better.... and I do wash my hair...

    ReplyDelete
  72. What beautiful fabrics - if I won the pack would be given to a new quilter who's right into wildlife etc
    What would I be - well DH would say a Tasmanian Devil - me at the moment a butterfly as I'm flitting between one project and another ;O)

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's been repeatedly suggested that I resemble a bunny. I have a nose that twitches quite a lot, rub both eyes when tired like one, and hop about quite a bit. My husband rather likes the idea of a bunny girl, but for very different reasons I think - much more Jessica Rabbit focussed!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Lovely, lovely fabrics! At the moment I feel a bit like an albino rabbit (apart from the scary red eyes) as the sun has finally arrived and my legs are a scary white colour!!Not that it stops me getting them out....

    ReplyDelete
  75. Gorgeous fabrics! I'm probably most akin to something that's hot but likes the sun, slightly manic and a little bit stressed! I can't think of a suitable animal at the moment, lol! What I would love to be is swimming somewhere tropical and feeling serene so I'll go with a manta ray! OK, I'll stop now as I think the sun is affecting my head...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Of course I would like to say a sleek and elegant gazelle but that would be a lie. Warthog?

    ReplyDelete
  77. I would love to be a Bichon Frise and be petted and stroked all day and be thoroughly spoilt. Not gonna happen so guess I'd have to be a hippo on a diet all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hmmm, i want to say I'm like a bunny as I love bunnies. I suppose I am in a way. I don't have long floppy ears, or a tail, but I can be grumpy and petulant (like my dwarf lop Tiff), I can be nervous (like my Netherland Dwarf Agoute Harry), in need of attention (like my mongrol Colin) and vain (like my Netherland Dwarf albino Ellis). And I eat all the time. So yes, I'm like a bunny!

  79. I've been told a hedgehog, something to do with hibernating...

  81. I adore this fabric line. That alphabet is just so cute! My nickname at work used to be Moorhen!! Because my surname is another mad river bird and they said I was alway running around franticly/crazily from one job to another!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. The animal I'm most like is a dog...no surprise there!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I just asked my little boy this question and he said i am most like a cat because i am all soft and cuddly ahhhhh x

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love those fabrics. I am possibly an armadillo hard on the outside, but soft centred

    ReplyDelete
  85. My doxie and I are so much alike. Short. Loud. Stubborn. And opinionated.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Ooooo, love, love, love that fabric! I have a thing for foxes too (even one of my nicknames at school was Vixen, after people kept shortening my name Victoria Anne to 'Vix-anne') but I don't think I'm anything like a fox. I think I'm another squirrel. I run around busy, busy, never stopping, hoard things for when I might need them, occasionally forget where those things might be, and I enjoy snuggling up with my family in the winter and being less active :) I'd even quite like to live in a tree if it was one of those huge luxury treehouses I keep seeing on Pinterest! If I won, it'd be perfect timing because it's my 30th birthday tomorrow :) Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Good question - I would say a hamster - lazy at times, frantic at others, and always ready for the refilling of the food bowl...! Lovely fabrics, too!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Probably very uninspired...but I always reckon I'm like a cat. I tend to curl up in a ball and stretch like one!

    ReplyDelete
  89. This is one of the cutest fabrics I have seen in a long time!

    I think I am like a hedgehog, a total mix of cuddly and prickly!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Love the fabrics!! I would probably be a bear. I tend to be like a momma bear when someone messes with my little cubbies.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'd be a cat. Depending on the day, I can be nice and cuddly, or I can feel more independent and run off on my own, without needing the company of others.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Think that I am an owl...asleep in the day and awake at night!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I asked my daughter who said I'm like a mother lion - usually I look after my cubs and cuddle them but sometimes i get grumpy and growl (apparently!!)

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would be a little dog who could be pampered all day and small enough to be carried and cwtched.

    Jules

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love Monaluna fabrics, truly gorgeous. I think that I am a badger, a bit grumpy but quite nice underneath!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thanks for a super giveaway!

    Um, I might resemble a tortoise ;)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Oh what beautiful fabrics. Thanks for having a giveaway. I would definitely say I'm a cat, if I'm not entertained by what I'm doing I'm off to find something new. Well that's how our cat behaves. Ali x

    ReplyDelete
  98. What perfect timing for a trip to England...

    Um, I'm loyal and gentle like my golden retrievers, but I don't run up to strangers and lick them, so there's limits to the similarities...

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh please enter me...
    I think I'm most like a sloth apart from not having long nails, oh and not growing green mould too. I like to think I'm patient, and chilled out and just a little out of touch with reality but my husband says I'm like a squirrel because I am always scampering around hoarding things and I'm cute and fluffy (his words not mine!) I'm rather fond of nuts too...

    ReplyDelete
  100. Hmm this is tricky - my daughter would probably say a grizzly bear, however I would like to think of myself more as a elegant sort of bambi deer full of energy and bounce...(I wouldn't like to admit which description might be more fitting...) Lovely fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Left to my own devices a dormouse...would scurry out to eat, sew and talk to family then curl up again...

    ReplyDelete
  102. Probably a polar bear. Definitely grizzly, but also keener on the cold than the heat!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am definitely a hedgehog. Prickly but vulnerable, reclusive and snuffly.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Great fabrics! I think I'm quite like our golden retriever. Don't like mornings, loyal and cuddly and I love the beach!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm an aardvark girl myself ... though catching sight of myself this morning at swimming I think I've morphed into a manatee. Would love the fox fabric for my kids - both Fs too - in fact the littlest shares your name!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I have been told quite a few times that I am like a deer, but I don't have large brown doe eyes as they are blue. I like the thought of being a deer though, so if I am it makes me happy.

    I am also called secret squirrel by a friend for obvious reasons. I guess that is true. My sister used to be a chinchilla as she was fluffy, plump and didn't do very much but she is completely different now. My daughter is like a baby bunny, skipping about in the sunshine and very intuitive.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Well I think it would have to be a dog - anxious to please, a bit bouncy and inclined to knock things over in cramped spaces. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  108. The animal I am most like, according to my diver husband, is a pyjama slug! More, I hope, to do with the fact that I am quite content to spend all day in my pjs and less to do with the slug part!

    ReplyDelete
  109. My hubby has often referred to me as a gazelle - not because of my graceful leaping movements, but because I'm always flitting from one thing to another!!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Definitely a Koala or a Penguin...like cuddling and hugging. I'd love to make pressies for the my newphews and a soon new-born baby girl. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  111. It's really hard for me to pick a favorite creature. Just about any animal, I think, "Ooo! I like that!" But I guess my default creature is a bird, because I'm Robyn.

  112. I'd say I'm most like a cat as I do like to sleep...

    Lovely bundle :)

  113. Gorgeous fabric! I really love the alphabet.

    As it's 1.15am and I'm wide awake, I unfortunately seem to be like any nocturnal creature you'd care to mention...

    ReplyDelete
  114. What a lovely bundle! I might just be a prairie dog - sometimes industrious, but frequently popping my head out of my hole to see what I'm missing.

  115. Not very original, but I most relate to cats and would like to come back as one.

  116. A dog! well my hubby seems to think I am one...he loves to pat me on the head, affectionately, when he walks past my chair..and when out and about and he's in front he'll stop and whistle for me to come. My friend says when an Englishman treats you like his beloved dog it's the greatest compliment ever. :)

  117. There seem to be a lot of cat personalities here and I'm definitly one of them. I feel very connected to those graceful, idependent and freedom-seeking souls.

  118. It would have to be a lion. And gender-bendingly a male lion, although my mane is now snow white. I love to laze in the sun, my mind full of plans. Mostly I am lazy and the plans stay right there in my mind but then suddenly I spring into a frenzy of action. I can make a lot of noise but that is not something to fear, my children used to say when my roar became a low growl, then they needed to worry. I can lead but when made to follow I can get bored and wander off

  119. Ohh, which animal do I like best, well I love elephants, hedgehogs and ladybirds. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer holidays.

  120. Which animals do I like best... that's a tough one... but since bears are one of my totems, I'll say bears.

    Thanks for the giveaway and chance to win.

  122. After much consideration (hence the late entry) I would say a piglet.
    I've never grown up, I'm generally contented and smile a lot, and I'm quite happy living in a pigsty! Not literally of course, but I'd rather be playing than cleaning.

  123. I am definitely a cat. I like watching from afar and taking in what is going on around me. Possibly a little aloof, but when someone rubs my ears, I will rub my sleek fur against their bare legs. Yep I'm definitely a cat!

    I am a ring tailed lemur today, loafing about in the sun, interested in everything and most partial to a bit of fruit. Sadly I don't have the stripey tail but am toying with making myself one!

  125. I have been likened to a labrador puppy in my youth - now I think adazed and confused spaniel, who ran into a tree! Sharon

  126. In a meerkat-ish moment I spotted something I thought was so up your street that it might make your Christmas wish list - the new Orla Kiely AW12 Fox collection - that I felt duty bound o double check it was on your radar http://www.aspirestyle.co.uk/products/handbags-purses/new-orla-kiely-fox-print-large-jeanie-bag-4631

    I actually have quite a lot in common in with a hippo at the moment, being very pregnant and having a short fuse. Incidentally I have 2 prints from the fox hollow collection and would love the bundle for a baby girl quilt. Thank you for the giveaway.

  128. I've never seen a fox in real life although every morning I see evidence that a crafty fox has been making himself a nuisance in our vegetable patch...I just wish he'd go near our compost heap to help me grow more veg! :)

    Anyway, I love this fabric line, it's super cute! xx

  129. I think I like elephants the most because they are such gentle animals. And the way they can remember their relatives that passed away is amazing. I even knit an elephant recently, you can see him here: http://pipapoblog.blogspot.de/2012/06/sailor-elephant-matrosen-elephant.html

    Thank you for the giveaway,

  130. I am more like a cat...I like to curl up and take a nap on the couch. Thanks for the giveaway!

  131. definately a koala...cuddly and squidgy, like constant attention and petting, could eat and sleep on a constant rotation sometimes!!

  132. Oooh beautiful fabric. Until this morning's much needed hairdo I was probably most like a sheep! Now I'm sleek and shiny (at least my hair is)so I might qualify as a long haired dachshund due to the short wheelbase!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Pretty fabric! As for the animal - well, I always feel an affinity to sheep, I think because they can seem a little bit dopey at times...but little ones (lambs, if we're going to be picky, lol) are playful :)

  134. Such nice fabric, they almost call autumn...


    I like butterflies, they have something so beautifull and call out freedom (well... I think so)

  135. I love this fabric. The little sleeping foxes! As for my animal, I would have to be a cat - social interaction on my terms only! Thanks for a great giveaway. Claire

  136. I suppose I'm like a cat really. I cat nap, and I'm independant and choosy with my friends. But I like a cuddle too, when I feel like it!
    Thanks for the chance to win

  137. Oh my what beautiful fabric!

    As for what animal I'm like.... well I can slink round like a cat, talk your hind leg off like a donkey, talk like a parrot, be as mad as a box of frogs.... therefore I must be something of a chameleon!
