This week’s featured Mosaic Monday bundle puts a Little Red Fox in the centre of it all. Drawing inspiration from Natalie Lymer’s Enchant Main in White, we’ve paired the whimsical, fanciful print with soft, sweet, nature-inspired prints and a dash of rich, vibrant pearl bracelets. This perfect combination of reds, blues and grays makes an excellent bundle to add to your stash or sew right away.
The Enchant print is simple and cheerful and it brings a smile to my face for two reasons: 1) it’s just plain pretty; and 2) it reminds me of a little story I have to tell…
One day, years ago, my husband and I were taking a drive in the country. We had stopped beside a field and were both looking at a tree (much like the one in the print). I blurted out, “Look! There’s a cat!” at the exact same moment that he blurted out, “Look! There’s a fox!” Then we argued for a good five minutes while we looked at the tree and the cat/fox, making our points about who was right. Then, he looked up the tree and I looked down. He saw a cat and I saw…a fox! A little red fox had chased a rather large orange cat up a tree and tricked us both.
Cunning and mischievous, quick and sly, is just how I imagine this little guy, so this week I’m wondering: do any of the prints in our Little Red Fox bundle remind you of anything?
