Toadstools…

Our current wet yet still pretty mild winter seems to be encouraging them… and me! I especially like the red and white ones so it’s no surprise these toadstools have found their way into my sketchbook this week. Ive made some more mittens for Maia (and an as yet un-photographed hat for Carter – he’s pretty hard to pin down for photos these days. Ive also done some more work on my red shawl, which I think is about the right size now for a pretty edging… any suggestions? What are you working on this week? What’s inspiring you?

PS> I should have mentioned that the crochet mitts Maia is wearing are ones I mentioned a little while back, Im planning on posting a pattern sometime soon🙂

    It is still such a kinda magical thrill to see your pictures of Autumn/Winter when we are moving from Spring to Summer. Those toadstools are amazing, I’m not surprised they inspired you to draw/paint them. Your shawl is such a lovely warm colour and certainly deserves a beautiful edging. I have been working on a throw: https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2015/06/05/a-throw-for-miss-e/
    And the edging will be daisy squares, but your shawl needs something more delicate doesn’t it, maybe with some picots.

    I love toadstools, too! I love your sketch of them, and I agree with IAMSIMPLYHOOKED that you should make them into greeting cards.

    Your shawl is so pretty. I suggest a picot type edging to match it’s delicate yarn and pattern. Thanks for sharing!
