I've been doing some needling lately. It's coming together slowly, but surely.
It's inspired by one of my favorite sights in the woods, the yellow Amanitas that should be popping up soon. I'm done with the gills and am working on the spots. I have a piece of poplar drying for the base and it will be nestled into a bed of moss in no time. My 3 oldest kids return to school next week and I'm hopeful that it will give me just a bit more time (and precious, precious quiet) to finish up.
I've also started gathering some of the large acorns from the tree behind my clothesline. She so generously provides the materials to make my little acorn ornaments. I know a few of you have asked if I'll be making these this year, and the answer is yes. If you'd like to secure one of your own, they're available for pre-order in my shop.
I've also made a few more wool acorns and added them to the shop as well. It's that time of year and I love it. I'm not so ready for that season that comes after, (the season that shall not be named) but I'll worry about that later
Today I'm off for a woods-wander with the kids. It rained today and I'm hoping more mushrooms will have popped up.
Have a great day everyone.
