Sculpture park visit and "what does the fox say"....

Up hill and down hill we walked my DH and I. A new sculpture park
 opened in October, only 5 minutes drive from where we live.Big area
in a vast woodland with about 30 different sculptures created by foreign
 artists as well as Norwegian ones. It`s called Ekeberg Sculpture Park,
situated in a lovely hill-side with a beautiful view  (check header),
and as Norway has FOX-fever we watched out ...lol...
But no foxes seen nor any other wild animals for that matter!!
 Fortunately I had a FQ or so of the fox fabric + other fabrics in a box!
Making a Christmas present for my Grandson,10 year.
Kasper loves foxes, in the distance for sure!
 Please check further down to see my first finish for November :-)
 
The piece of land/wood is no longer like a bush, but it has been tidied up.
 Sculptures are spread over  a large area and with good walking shoes you`ll be fine!

"THE DANCE" by George Cutts.
Beautiful, soft, continues, many different movements!

"WALKING WOMAN" by Sean Henry.
She is huge and heavy and will never ever walk away! 
 
"PAVILLION" by Dan Graham.
Feeling of being a fish in water when inside here:-)
 
"KONKAVT ANSIKT" by Hilde Maehlum.
This sculpture is absolutely amazing to look at; her face pops in and out
in shapes as you walk passed her. The park has 30 different sculptures, I
have just shown few. Check the link, more photos from the part to see.
Worth a visit. And for those who will watch "Norway Cup" next year,
 the park is just sort of behind the football grounds. 
Here it is the fox toiletry bag.The pattern is from AnnAKa, it went
quite quickly as I have used the pattern a couple of times before.
Hurry up Christmas, I have lots of plans ready :))

If you have nothing at all to do, sure always ... lol ...,
press on the link, both my DD and Kasper is doing the FOX-dance
on TV2`s breakfast programme some days ago. 
Press on start, go to approx.  46.5, then start again.  It works!
All the best to you from Grethe, xx

Det är nog första gången som jag ser ett tyg med rävar på.
Din toalettväska är mycket fin i de starka färgerna mot det svarta, tycker jag.
