Mr Fox giveaway

 
Well hello ..........it's been a while , in fact I feel like a stranger to these parts !!
To be quite honest after my last post in March when I hadn't been too well and I was recuperating after a little op and I continued to be quite under the weather and I had a couple more investigations /visits to hospital  as well as another procedure as a day patient . To be totally honest I just needed a break from things .
 I needed time and space to deal with my health issues as well as trying to continue with family life . I  also needed to give  my very full mind the space and the time it needed to deal with everything that was going on .I just needed to prioritise the demands on my grey matter to move my thought processes forward to help begin improving my health again and gently get myself  firing on all cylinders  .
Thank fully the procedure's worked well , investigations were successful and I had diagnosis to problems and the thing I am truly greatful  for is that 2 weeks ago my biopsy's came back clear .
 
Whilst my health issues continued I had a good hard look at my health in general and 10 weeks ago I decided to do some thing about my ever increasing weight . Last year was a very stressful year for me and I ate my way through the stress , those cupboard & fridge doors were open for business feeding the emotions inside I was constantly trying to control  and subdue .
So 10 weeks on I am 1 stone 3 & a half pounds lighter and continuing this journey . I went back to sliming world  which I had  successfully achieved weight lose before  a  few years before. In addition to  this new healthy eating life style I have also started doing 2 to 3 power walks a week and I love and look forward to the exercise and the health benefits it is bringing . 
 
 Now I have given myself the space I needed to sort myself out I am back in control of my weight and I am back to being physically well and healthy and
I feel it is the right time to come back to my blog and share my life here in the Yorkshire dales with you . 
I really have missed this and you , here in blog land  !!!
 
So to celebrate coming back to my blog I think we are due for a little giveaway.....what do you think ??
 I'm sure you would love a giveaway wouldn't you !!
Well who would like to win and  receive one of my Mr Foxes ?
 
This is the Mr Fox that is up for grabs !
 







 
Mr Fox is a soft textile sculpture ( he is not a toy )
and he comes with a couple of needle felted toadstools and he is also worth £50.
I will send him any where in the world and all you have to do to enter  is to leave your name and the name you would give Mr Fox in a comment below on this post .
I will close this giveaway on midnight Thursday the 16th of July 2015 and the winner will be drawn out of a hat or a basket ( depending on how many enter)  by one of the lovely yarnaholic ladies on Friday morning the 17th July 2015  at our Creative Coopers group .
I will announce the winner straight away that morning on my Facebook business page for Handmade Over Yonder and as soon as I get home from Coopers café-bar and have access to my computer I will announce here on my blog on Friday the 17th July 2015 .
Well I think on that note it's time for me to go and leave you lovely folks to pop your names down in the comments section and lets see on Friday 17th July who is going to be lucky enough to have their name picked out and win him .
So thanks for popping by and ta ta for now Tracy xx

  1. Well the question is, who in the world wouldn't want a Mr. Fox all their very own. I certainly would. I would name him Reginald.

    Having said that, I was so happy to check your blog today and find a new post. I have been worried about you since your health sounded somewhat iffy in the last several posts . I'm so glad to know that things are all taken care of, you have lost weight (that's about 13 pounds isn't it?) and you are walking and feeling much, much better all around. Good for you.

You have inspired me to work on shedding some of my excess baggage! Your work is beautiful and I have long admired your suave Mr Fox. Should he wish to have an Australian accent I would be honored to care for him and he would be well loved and looked after here in the beautiful Dandnong Ranges, outside Melbourne.

  81. What a handsome chap! How about "Ybur"? That's "Ruby" spelled backwards - just to be different, and Ruby is too feminine for such a macho looking fox. Yes, Ybur Vulpes sounds very sophisticated. I've long admired your fabulous creations, Tracy. Sending prayers your way for a full recovery. And bravo for discovering a healthier lifestyle and sticking to it!

  123. Have never commented on a blog before but wanted to say that I am looking forward to seeing more of your creations. I love the different skills, fabrics and accessories you use and like some of the other blogs I read I really admire how much gets done by truly creative people. I have the time and the energy and sometimes achieve good individual results but to see a creative "wholeness" really does make me envious.
    I'd name him Hamish after our beloved beagle who passed away this year at a very great age -16 and a quarter. Such a gentle dog who didn't bat an eyelid at the urban foxes we'd come across.

  125. Hi Tracy, It's good to see you back and to hear the news that you are on the mend. I missed you and checked in regularly to see if there was any news about your situation ... and to see if you were feeling up to blogging again. Thanks for the lovely give-away. If I receive Mr. Fox here in So California I would call him Henry. One of my favorite American authors is Henry David Thoreau and that seems fitting for his intellectual look. Blessing for a wonderful end of summer.

  126. Hi, I would call him 'madra rua' which directly translated from gaelic means 'red dog' - another name from for fox! Welcome back, tara

  127. I have missed your blog, glad you are feeling much better. I like the name "Archibald" for the Fox.
    Alex.

  129. Hi Tracy, I have just discovered your blog today. I'm so glad to read that your biopsy result came back clear, what a relief for you. I have studied your blog and simply love all that I see. I would be interested to know where I can find the recipe for your Walnut brownies. They look delicious.

    If I am eligible to be entered into your draw, I would call your gorgeous Mr Fox "Long Legs" in memory of the fox who used to visit us over the last few years. His mum originally bought him along when he was only a small cub. He became quite tame and cheeky and would frolic about in front of my husband as he walked down the garden. As he grew older he later introduced his own offspring into the garden, which are still recognisable to this day by their tall stature and the white tip on the tail. He also used to lay on our front lawn during last summer, watching us view TV in the evening. We can only assume he was run over earlier this year. We still have foxes visiting but it's not the same, as he was such a character.
    I am so glad to hear you have the all clear and hope your health improves daily. Barbara xx
