I love smiling 'shrooms, can you tell? Here are some of the 'shroomie crafts I completed during December (when I should have been doing holiday chores, but that's another story). First, I crocheted these mushroom amigurumis from a pattern made by my friend Ana.
I then turned to carving some cute 'shroom stamps. I'm happy with how these turned out. They are two-part stamps; first I stamp the outline, and then choose a color for the cap and stamp that on top, carefully aligning the two images. If my hands don't shake too much, they come out okay!
It also snowed today . . . some of the last flakes of 2007, I'll bet. It made everything look sugar-coated and like fairyland, as the birdbath fairy can attest, below.
This will be my last post for 2007. May you have a blessed New Year, and may all your dreams come true in 2008! More art next year!
