Mr Fox!


Get a load of this cheeky bugger, would you believe that he was not even 3 metres from my back door and he literally didn't blink an eye when I went out to get a photo. He has climbed up there obviously in search of some bread. My husband Alan normally throws a bag up there every 2nd night or so, to keep it out of the way of scavengers. We then take it down to our chickens in the morning. Just to top it off! Darcee! my youngest, went down to feed our 12 chickens on the Saturday morning only to find that they were all dead.(Thank you very much Mr Fox) We've had our chooks for 18 months or so with out an ounce of trouble, but I have noticed a lot more foxes around.....Time to re fox proof our chook pen.

They are little dickens! One of our sons lives in the country and they have lots. They are crafty creatures. Thanks for the picture.

Naughty little Fox! I think he has had his last dinner at your place though.
On a more quilting subject, I recieved some junk mail from Spotlight today and thought you might be interested in thier 'Christmas Quilt night.' It starts in store on Thursday 16th September from 3.00pm. There will be a NEW Christmas quilting and decorating range, special discounts,instore quilting demonstrations and creative project ideas. Sounds like it could be something for you and your quilting friends to check out. You can also go in the draw to win a quilting hamper! Good luck! Mezz
