Festivities and Foxes

Well where did the time go?! A moment ago Mrs Bobobun and I were off around the countryside of North Norfolk with a lump hammer and a staple gun (do you spy that gorgeous vintage coat?!)...
Then it was the day of the first Pick 'n' Mix Makers Market!
There was time for a bit of sewing,
A few felted owls, the little ones with lavender from the garden,
Mrs Bobobun and I were grateful to have time to set up the night before so that we could help our stall holders on the day....see more pics over on the Pick n Mix blog!
The beautiful boy had a lovely time discovering a fishing ap on the iPhone of Phil from Grain Brewery.... thank-you Phil - the boy and his daddy are now both utterly hooked...
The boy also occupied himself with some cutting and sticking with one of the Grain Brewery beer bottle boxes... the perfect festive hat as it turns out!
And then it was all over. Just like that and already Mrs Bobobun and I are busy going through the applications for our next fair in May! But first it's holiday time and the Beautiful boy and I have been freezing to bits doing a spot of birdwatching in our favourite places...
and then the weather kindly brought snow! Hurrah!
Snowmen, snowball fights and general mayhem...
and some tracking. We tracked this naughty fox all over the garden...
always generally in the direction of our neighbours lovely chickens!
and finishing on some prettiness, I accidentally sold the initial sampler... but the lady needed an 'R' for her neice and I am very happy it has gone to a lovely appreciative home!
Not much time for any sewing now with Christmas just days away. I have no idea how it crept upon me so quickly this year. For the first time, Christmas will be elsewhere this year so the house is feeling a bit left out, but I'm sure there will be a few festive pics before the big day. Hope you're all enjoying the holidays and are ready for festive fun. t.x
(Just in case you were wondering - the lump hammer and staple gun were for sign posting.. of course!! t.x)

It is so wonderful when there is time to do things nicely instead of rushing. It looks like you had a delightful time.
