March! What a great month, you never know what to expect. One day its 72 degrees, the next day it's trying to snow. What a roller-coaster month. I love it!
One thing is always constant here in the Hollow, March is time to make new creatures and I've had a busy week filling some orders.
The newest fox couple, Lord and Lady Dunwoody are traveling to their new home today.
I do believe this is the most handsome fox I have ever made.
I've made several foxes in the past and it's
funny that one can never duplicate the creature exactly as before.... the characters simply decide WHO they want to be... and it's always a surprise to me.
The same applied to the Hare Below. A customer wanted to purchase Dominicus Pike from my website, but he had been sold .. SO I made her a Phineas Tumbleweed instead..
I used the same mohair and the same colors in wool, even the same vest, yet Phineas is completely different in facial features and demeanor.
That's why all the Hopalong Hollowfolk are one of a kind.... just like us.
Phineas has left us for New Hampshire, where he plans on planting a sumptuous vegetable garden for his new Mistress....
and the Dunwoodys will continue living stylishly in their new home, as only the Gentry can.
