Cloudy view from the den

I got up early this morning, the view from the sky den is rather cloudy....... i have been waiting for ' mr. fox' to wake up so i can start up my sewing machine!! I have plans to craft today. A friend is expecting a baby boy early next year and i want to make something for him, something he and his mum will like. And christmas is not so far away...hmm will have to get crafting fast.

I like to sew, crochet and knit..and i am trying to get better at all three.
My mum 'mama fox' is amazing. She can craft like nobodys business. She taught me my crafty skills but i have a really long way to go before i match her talent!!

She and my dad  'papa fox' are my inspiration. Papa fox can make kids we had a homemade go-cart, a playhouse and heaps of other cool stuff he made. He great with anything mechanical and is often in his 'Man den' the shed!

'Sister fox' is a gorgeous fox, she lives in the south too, although she has left the family den. She is a crafty fox too! She is great at sewing and i was throughly spoilt on my last birthday with her crafty present.

The 'family den' is way down at the bottom of New Zealand, in the countryside. I am in the big smoke; Auckland. Mr. fox and i moved here almost a year ago and just love the lifestyle. We are saving hard for a den of our own. Our current den is a rented apartment that is small to say the least. But its cosy and in the central city so it suits us just fine right now.

Oooo i  hear the jug boiling away merrily and i need until next time
Goodbye from the thrifty fox
