Fox Chatelaine

Two years ago, we had a Chatelaine Challenge at our October Applique Retreat. I decided to combine my love for foxes with elements of a chatelaine. I haven't been using the chatelaine, since it is so heavy. I had originally placed a metal pin on the back of the fox, so that I could pin it on my blouse. Too heavy. Then I tried a chain around my neck. Much too heavy. Then, I remembered some earth magnets I have which have extraordinary holding ability. I placed an earth magnet on my magnification lamp post, and "Voila", the chatelaine has found a perfect, usable spot.

Foxes are one of my favorite animals, such gorgeous colors, and a little cunning ;)
